I bought this color about a year ago, and bought OctoBear about two months ago. They’re the same base shade, but OctoBear has a strong green duotone shimmer - so its primarily visible color is green.
The ultimate autumnal orange. I swear, this color glows. It also can shift a little more red, or a little more gold, depending on the lighting.
The yellow color is pretty pale, more of a suggestion or a tint atop the white. Still, if you have extremely cool undertones, this shade may not work so well for you. This was the least cooperative pencil that I bought, when I first opened it. I had to sharpen the pencil to get to something with a creamier consistency, that was easier to apply evenly.
Zoya’s holographics are…mmm…kind of hit-or-miss, in my opinion. They’re often scattered rather than linear holographic, and sometimes there’s barely any shimmer in them. This color looks more like a multicolor-silver microglitter than a holographic polish. I needed three coats to get coverage that wasn’t completely even, and the polish is almost semisheer.
