Lost in Makeupland’s Them Bones

The shades from the Alice's Chains collection didn't really appeal to me much. I'm not quite sure why - perhaps because they were mostly warmer shades, when I tend to prefer neutral and favor cool shades? Alice's Chains contained a bright orange, a medium-bright yellow-green, a warm fuchsia, and this shade. This is a very soft, faded yellow with minimal shimmer. It isn't quite what I often define as a “sheen”, which means that the color is semisheer; but it's not got much of a shimmer nor a satin or plush finish, either. I could see using this as a blending shade, especially to soften the line between neutral and gold-toned shades; but it's just a bit too pigmented and lacking in shimmer to make a good highlighter for me. Golden-toned or -undertoned skin types may be able to use this as a softer brow highlighter, or browbone color.

This is fairly similar to Lazy Sunday, one of the earliest shades I purchased from Lost in Makeupland; but LS is brighter and has a bit more depth. Their respective levels of color payoff are similar, and both are buildable. I don't know how well Lazy Sunday would work as a blending shade, though, because it does have that additional color depth that Them Bones doesn't have.
