TKB Trading’s Lovely Leo

Another shade from what I privately call the “Zodiac” collection: eight (or is it nine?) shades all named after western zodiac signs, in varying shades. (Aquarius, Taurus, Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Sagittarius, Cancer, Pisces…I think that's it.) Lovely Leo is a medium-weight orange with yellow-gold undertones and a shimmer finish. It isn't the most thrilling shade I've ever purchased, because while orange looks amazing with my blue eyes, this color doesn't have lots of depth to it. The deeper oranges complement my eyecolor. The lighter ones, or the yellow-toned shades? Not so much.

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the eyeshadow in the pot; top right, the eyeshadow mixed with water and applied to bare skin; bottom left, the eyeshadow applied dry over primer.

Color payoff is good for a straight mica; and the shimmer finish is attractive. This just isn't a shade that works very well on me.
