Meow Cosmetics’ Skeptic

Meow Cosmetics’ Skeptic

One of the first colors from the Friday the 13th collection to catch my eye. I wish the base blue color was a little deeper, because it would look a bit more dramatic; but this looks nice paired with a dark navy or purple eyeshadow. I can get some interesting effects if I apply this over a darker creme base using a soft brush.

Very little duochrome to this color. It's pretty enough, and it applies evenly, but it takes four coats for full coverage and there's not much color-change going on. Part of this may have to do with green and blue being so similar to each other anyway - you're not sure if you're seeing no color change, or if you're seeing it but it's just extremely subtle.

Shifts between grey and greyed lilac, depending on the lighting and colors used with it. In that respect, it reminds me a bit of Bare Escentuals' Marquise. The pigmentation on Tianna is a little better, but the finish is a bit more granular . Tianna also has the tendency to thin out a bit if you use too much mixing medium (like I did when foiling.) I like the dry application much better.
