TKB Trading’s Sunset Shift

TKB Trading’s Sunset Shift

Another interference color, in the same group as Sunrise Shift. I’m still working to figure out how to best use these, for me. They sort of work as highlighters, sort of work as an effects-layer eyeshadow, but the interference shift - the interesting part of this color - is fairly soft.

NYX Cosmetics’ Simply Pink lip cream in Enchanted

NYX Cosmetics’ Simply Pink lip cream in Enchanted

I was hoping for a slightly deeper shade with a little bit more coral. This is pretty pink, though. It’s not a color I will reach for often because it’s so light, it’s not a shade that I prefer. The coverage is solid, and it doesn’t bleed, so people who like this shade of pink are very much in luck.

I have some pale golds in my collection, and I have some very soft silvers. I don’t have any colors that are a combination of the two, though, so I bought this in full-size just this past December. There’s enough color payoff for this to work as a standalone color. I’ve also used it as a highlighter. I haven’t tried using it as a liner, though…I probably should. It’s got an “antique”, patinaed appearance...

Shiro Cosmetics/Detrivore’s Beware the Autumn People collection

This is my first Detrivore purchase. (I didn’t know about them for too long before they were distributed solely through Shiro, and there were shipping issues, so…I never gave them a go.) Almost all of these work best for me as either liner or crease colors: they are very saturated, and about half of them are black-based, so even though they blend well, they can tend to overwhelm other colors they’re used with. The colors are all...

Applied dry, you get a softer peach with a near-pearl finish. Applied wet, it’s a slightly deeper base color with a gold duotone shimmer.

Similar to TKB’s Hilite colors, which are semisheer white with an interference shift. These are a bit more granular/chunky than the “hilite” colors, and the interference shifts to one of two colors depending on the angle of the light. It’s a bit too large-particle to make an effective highlighter, but I like the duotone shift. I may have to figure out how best to use this one.

I am still a bit disappointed that this color wasn’t ever available for individual purchase! It’s one of the reasons that I bought the Over Brunch collection. For me, it’s a good “casual-dressy” shade - it gives me more color than a tint, but not something too intense or pale.
