A softer red with decent coverage. It does show up best on medium-light and fairer skintones. It’s also pretty versatile: I’ve used it as a highlighter, a blush, and an eyeshadow. (The vendor doesn’t mention that it isn’t lip-safe, so I could probably use this over deeper reds to soften their color a little.)

This is a bold red color that I’m comfortable wearing…almost. It’s a deep red, but not vivid, glowing, or intense.

The formula was a little thick. I don’t know if I got an older bottle (that’s my guess) or one from an off batch (equally possible.) One coat was too uneven for a final manicure; two coats took a long time to fully cure. It’s a nice color, but I expected it to be a little deeper.

Several neutrals and near-neutrals with two stronger, vivid colors. Pink Coral can work as a blush on lighter skintones; Calliope might be a bit heavy as a blush on deeper skintones, even with the lightest touch used; but buffing some of the color away might make it work as a face color.

Not really a shimmer finish…unless you compare this to the other Cozy and Bright colors. Then, yeah, it just edges over into “shimmer” finish. As a highlighter, it’s very very subtle. I’ve used it as a subtle inner-vee highlighter, but it should be mentioned that I tend to prefer EXTRENELY subtle eye-highlighters.

The color isn’t quite dark enough to provide great eyeliner-definition on deeper skintones, but on medium-deep to fair, it’s a nice liner or even crease shade. This doesn’t change color quite as dramatically as Dream Catcher does, but the colorchange is present, even when the shadow is blended out.

This isn’t “hot pink”, but it’s definitely intense. The color doesn’t stain, but sadly it doesn’t stay in place very long, either. It’s attractive, and I like it as a summer shade. I just wish that it had a little more longevity.
