Aromaleigh v2’s Gildedoak

Based on the vendor photos from Aromaleigh, I thought I would like this color more than I did.

Maybelline’s Icy Mint Color Tattoo cream shadow

Maybelline’s Icy Mint Color Tattoo cream shadow

My (and many others' least favorite of the 2013 summer color tattoos. The color was very pale - softer than Lavish Lavender - and the application was extremely difficult and uneven. I had to apply two layers of this color to get it to show up as much as it did.

NYX Cosmetics’ Golden Pink Chrome

A bright raspberry base, similar to TKB's Raspberry or BFTE's Lotus, with gold shimmer. The problem is…the base color applies so very very softly that it's more like a tint than a full-on shadow.

I prefer Miranda to Chyna. I prefer the combination of textured, plus sparkle, plus a raspberry-red to the same with a bright vampy red. (Which is odd. I like red metallics, I like red sparkle polishes, but add in the texture - make the surface more three-dimensional - and I need to tone down the color a little.) I know. I'm weird.

This is almost exactly the same color as Drunken Relatives, from the Xmas Rant collection. Really. If you have one of these colors, you don't need the other.

This mostly shows up as a cool chrome-silver grey. The blue-green shimmer is only visible in certain light, at certain angles - definitely not intensely visible.

The base color is a very pretty dusty blue-purple, but the silver and gold shimmer overwhelms it. It’s great for an accent, or an evening all-over color.

Beauty from the Earth’s Denebola

Beauty from the Earth’s Denebola

Applies a bit softer than expected, based on the vendor photo. It's a slightly deeper version of Aromaleigh v2's Odianne - and, bonus, it's permanent, so it's not going to vanish in 2 or even 6 months when the collection goes out of rotation.
