Originally I was overlooking many of the softer pinks in the Eye Lusters collection, intending only to buy Kiki and Diamanda. Then I received a sample of this color and found out that it was a match for a limited-edition shade (from another company) that I'd fallen in love with.

I thought it looked a bit similar to <a href=”/such/obsessive/addictions/tkb_tradings_pink_pearl/”>TKB Trading's Pink Pearl</a>, so I decided to check…and, yes, an exact match. The primary differences are that TKB's is a straight mica; and Pink...
