Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Cake

A very light, almost white mauved brown with a smooth, pale gold duotone shimmer. When I first saw the photos of this color, I wasn't 100% sure that I'd want it. It seemed like another neutral, pretty enough, but probably fairly close to something I already had in my collection. It is…and it isn't. The base shade is simple, versatile, just barely this side of warm-neutral. The soft gold shimmer, which wasn't all that apparent in the photos, is something that I have on other neutrals. What really sets this one apart is the coverage, the density of the gold duotone shimmer, and the faint mauve notes in the base color.
