Beauty from the Earth’s Addicted

I held off on buying this for quite a while…largely on principle. It was an unblended mica (meaning that the color had base mix added for adhesion and slip, but no other pigments or color additives) and while I appreciated these being clearly marked, I also wasn't thrilled that they cost the same as the truly original shades. I eventually got this color when I saw it used in one of The Daily Glamour's looks…the same reason for buying Isis, another unblended mica.

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the eyeshadow in the pot; top right, the eyeshadow mixed with water and applied to bare skin; bottom left, the eyeshadow applied dry over primer.

I think this shade is a close match for TKB Trading's True Red. It's brighter, no overt cool or warm undertones, a sleeker finish that's just barely not metallic.
