Fyrinnae’s Arcane Magic: Dark Fantasy

Some of the Arcane Magic colors, the shift is pretty distinct. In others, it's less so. But I almost always fail to capture any of the shift! It's difficult. I caught a little bit of it this time, only a little bit, but I did catch some.

The base color is a medium-bright evergreen shimmer. At the edges, it starts to morph to coppery-red and rust. In the photo, I tried showcasing some of the colorshift visible in Dark Fantasy. It's most visible as you move your head and the light falls on it differently, of course; but you can see it if you apply it to the curve of your arm or wrist, and look at where the curve begins and the light hits the shadow at a different angle.

I haven't tried using this as a liner shade - but it's almost dark enough, and I think the colorshifting liner effect could be interesting. (Or maybe not. I'll have to find that out..!)

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