Aromaleigh v1’s Looking Glass

I would call this a metallic finish, because it's so very reflective...but it's also very broken. In my personal taxonomy system, metallic finishes are smooth (or, at the very least, smoother) and sparkly finishes are about as reflective as metallic finishes, but they've got more texture to them. This is a deeper silver, almost a shiny pewter shade. It's got blue tones in it - it's definitely a cooler grey. I don't know if I'm just having fun experimenting with colors more or if this one really is that versatile, but I've been able to use the barest traces of this to brighten deeper looks that are just a bit too dark. I can't use it as an all-over wash, but if I apply this to the inner lid corner, it brightens the look without diminishing any contouring effects.
