Almost a “Concord-grape” purple, right down to the bluish shine. The color payoff is good, if a little less deep than one might expect looking at the potted shadow.

Almost a photo-reverse” of Naga Mask. (No, I did not plan this out when I scheduled the entries. It just ended up that way…) The dry application is a bit softer in terms of color payoff - the color doesn't necessarily pale, just looks a little dusty. Even the foiled application loses a tiny bit of color depth, from the shadow's appearance in the pot; but it keeps all of the intensity.

Brighter green, a bit softened but not much. This color would almost look at home on a child's playground, except those are usually bolder primary hues…nevertheless, when I look at this shade, I see it fitting into a “kids' area” palette. It's a great green for folks who want some brighter color on their lids, but don't want screaming neon or even bold primaries.
