Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Afraid of Bees

The interference layer is pretty prominent. It doesn’t completely block the orange base color (which, thankfully, is NOT Cheeto-orange) but it definitely changes it. The top layer can lean gold, but it’s definitely greenish. I’m not sure that this color can be universally easily used, but if it is a color you like, grab it! The pigmentation is excellent, and it stays in place very well. I didn’t get staining when I went to remove this, but it hadn’t faded or fallen away after a full day of wear.
