An attractive shade, but it doesn't lay down much overt color. Instead it just seems like it concentrates and lightly amplifies my natural lip color. I think this was part of the 2012 Spring limited-edition collection…but I can't be sure. All I do know is that this color was limited edition, and is no longer available for sale (except from Ebay, or in really really old endcap displays.

(I love them…I just, oddly enough, don’t love wearing quite so much of it together, without a neutral or a red or purple as an accent shade.) All of these colors were available in other kits, and all three were available for individual purchase. Atomic Teal is the deepest shade in this collection, but there doesn’t seem to be that much contrast between the...
