NYX Cosmetics’ Bright Idea Illuminating Stick in Coralicious

This sheer pinky-orange looks very 1980s when I wear it on my eyelid. I initially did not expect to like this very much, but it turns a stronger pink when applied! (I don’t know why. I just enjoy it.)

It is possible to over-apply this one, but not as easy as if it were a deeper color like Brick Red Blaze. It stays blendable for about 15-30 seconds after application, and doesn’t fade easily.
