I grabbed this when it went on sale, because Shiro / Detrivore have really good-quality shadows and I wanted to snag one of their softer neutrals.

Softer brown-red multipurpose powder. I’ve used it as an eyeshadow and blush, but this can also be used as a lip color and possibly a contour.

CND’s Vinylux Uncovered (267)

This could be a great nude color. It’s a shade found in nearly every lineup at some point. But it’s almost sheer! It builds, but not rapidly. The manicure in this review was three coats, and I can still see the nail line. This could be put over a white matte or creme polish, for a brighter pale tan; but I could not get solid coverage using this on its own.

This red leans a bit cool - cool enough that it may not look great on the warmest skintones, unless used fairly sparingly. The finish is almost metallic, but not quite. The color payoff is very solid. I got better results applying it dry over primer than wet, but it didn’t apply horribly when mixed with water. It just wasn’t quite as easy to work with.

If you’re interested in any colors - or backups! - from the Miyazaki Glows and Tints, the Legends collection, the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes collection, the Flash Ignite collection, or the Battle of the Boy Bands collection, head over and browse...
