Meow Cosmetics’ Abzu

The ‘abzu' is the ur-aquafir, the source for all fresh water springs, lakes, rivers, et al. (Apparently because it came from underground, it was given some religious quality. I don't completely understand that one - I'm at a loss.) At any rate, the shade is a soft, clear medium turquoise. The opacity's very good, even when applied dry. I can have a lot of fun with this shade, because under certain conditions, this matches my eye color. (My eyes range from blue-grey, to blue-green, to blue, to turquoise-grey…they're weird like that.) I also like that while it's the same shade as BE's Exotic Tara, it's considerably more opaque and I get more color payoff.
