Concrete Minerals’ Harlequin

Medium olive with a silver-purple shimmer and -=almost=- a duochrome effect. It reminds me of BE's Festive, which pleasantly surprised me with how multifaceted it was…but CM's Harlequin costs less per gram and it looks prettier than BE's Festive. So double bonus there. There's less of the green color evident when applied than there is in the pot: it looks like it will be a medium moss green, but when I applied it wet there was a silvery-purple color with a slight green base, and when I foiled the shade it was all purple-silver shimmer with sporadic highlights of the moss-green. Harlequin kind of looks like an eyeshadow version of Gray's Anatomy.
