Meow Cosmetics’ Turtle Bay

This is almost like a soft gold-olive - it's a very pretty color, with great adhesion. I like that it's a metallic green that isn't super-dark, and doesn't have overtly yellow tones. It's not a neutral-green, but it's fairly close! This shade reminds me of Tea, from the Aromaleigh v1 Opulent Lustres collection. (I never did get around to getting Tea, and I dithered back and forth for so long that by the time I'd finally decided in favor of getting this full-size, it was already gone.)

This color leaves behind just the faintest bit of sooty residue, which happens often with metallic or blackened colors. It's very very faint, though; and like I mentioned, it's got excellent adhesion so the top color doesn't flake and fall away to leave behind a light-black tracery. (Though for me, with my hooded and oily lids, if I don't use a primer it will migrate and crease in less than an hour. Any type of loose-powder shadow does that unless I wear a primer beneath it.)
