Black Rose Minerals’ Royal Orchid

Nominally purple…but actually, it can go either way: a very cool wine-purple red, or a red-plum purple. This reminds me of Bare Escentuals' Magical. It's a similar base color, but more than that, it's a purple that I initially didn't think I'd be able to wear easily. Turns out that it really accents my eye color very, very well!

Coverage is good, the shimmer finish nicely accents rather than overpowers. I think colors in this range may get overlooked, because they're not instantly jeweltones and not instantly categorizable as “warm” or “cool” and so when I'm choosing shadows to buy, I tend to skip past them. But when I do buy one, I'm always pleasantly surprised.
