One of the few cool colors from Meow's Stripped collection, this is a softened slate blue with a powdery satin finish. I have colors that are similar to this in the pot, but once applied, they lose a bit of their depth. This is close enough to neutral that all but the warmest skintones should be able to wear this fairly easily, in place of medium-light browns or greys.

I love highlighters and “effects colors” like this one that are actually opaque. It gives me the option to use them as standalone shades. There's a faint gold shimmer to this that's only really visible as an iridescent shimmer, when the light hits it at just the right angle. Unlike Prismatic, which is semiopaque but has some purple tones, there's not necessarily lots of depth to this color. People with decidedly cooler skintones may have some problems wearing this.
