Persephone Minerals’ Mars Crystal Power

Another color that I bought before Persephone's hiatus back in 2011, along with a few of the other “Sailor” multicolor shadows. This isn't as much of a duochrome as a duotone, but it's attractive. The red base is vivid without being too bright. It does tend to stain just a little bit, and there's too much gold for this to really be useful as a blush or lip color; but it makes an interesting eyeshadow.
