Interesting shades…but not really as colorchanging as the vendor photos suggest. They’re also larger-particle, not full-on sparkle, but close. Intergalactic is the one that shows the most multichromatic effects, but those are a bit on the muted side.

I am not a huge fan of standard highlighting. I don’t dust highlighting powder on my cupid’s bow, above my cheekbones or even always just beneath my eyebrows. I do love highlighters, though - as complements to deeper eyeshadows, or as effects-layers.

This color primarily presents as a medium violet with some shifts into blue and magenta. At the most extreme angles it moves through brown and copper-bronze, but they’re visible on the periphery and only as hints. I’ve only had the chance to wear this twice in the two months that I’ve owned it - once I wore it as a liner shade, once I wore it as an outer-crease shade, both times I’ve planned the look...

Just like it says on the tin…blackened violet sparkle. I can’t see much of any color-change in this one, except to maybe a slightly more blue-violet at angles. Since this is an unblended mica, it won’t stay in place very long unless you use a sealant. It also is less easy to blend out. If you’re not using this as a hard-edged liner, best to blend the other color into it to get best results.
