Fyrinnae’s Arcane Magic: Mermaid Masquerade

Bright rich sapphire sparkle with hints of violet and pink color changes. The color change isn't quite as apparent in this Arcane Magic shadow as in others - for example, Dark Fantasy or Sorceress - but it's there. Initial coverage was a little softer, but the color is buildable and adding another layer increases the intensity. You can also just put more on the brush, and the shadow will apply a bit more densely.

This is definitely a sparkle finish, so use some kind of fixative or sealant to avoid fallout throughout the day.

I think I might have a blue that's close to this same base color, but not exactly. And I don't know that it's a sparkle finish - and it definitely isn't a duochrome, however faint that duochrome effect might be!
