This color looks lovely...in the pot, or applied wet. Applied dry, it's still a gorgeous blue, it just lacks coverage.

The sparkle isn't quite as apparent when this color is applied dry, even onto still-damp primer or a cream shadow base. Wet application really brings out all the tones and amps up the sparkle finish. (It is straight mica, though, so most people will probably be applying this wet anyway, to help it adhere better.)

This mica is just a little too orange for me to use it as a brow highlighter. It kind of dulls my look when I try using it as an inner-vee highlighter, as well - there's too much yellow-orange and not enough white to work with my coloring. There may be a way I can use this, I just haven't found it yet.

A great dark grey liner for folks who don't quite want a full-on black, but want more color depth than most greys, even grey gel liners. The pigmentation level is excellent. The shimmer isn't too noticeable in this one, but it almost shows hints of green shimmer atop the grey.
