Persephone Minerals has shut down for the forseeable future…but I still have a good chunk of colors that I got from them in fall and winter 2011, and I intend to share the swatches. There are some lovely colors - lots of duochromes and duotones. So naturally the first color I showcase is a lovely but rather straightforward blackened teal.
This color looks nice enough in the pot, but the shimmer doesn’t carry through to application. There is some shimmer, but it’s kind of sparse. I love the color, though - blackened deep teal. I’ve used this as an inner-vee accent color, but it would probably work quite well as a liner shade. I do wish that this color showed a bit more of the teal when applied wet, though. The damp-application shade seems to be a black with teal tones, somewhat similar to Aromaleigh’s Drama Teal minus the metallic finish. I like this shade, and I got it on seasonal clearance price (which I cannot, for the life of me, remember what the actual original price was) but I would not buy this particular shade from Persephone again. I’d buy one of the duochromes instead, and try to find a blackened teal with more ‘teal’ and less ‘blackened’.
