Metallic burgundy-copper turns bronze, to gold, then chartreuse green, maintaining a gleaming "molten" appearance. Underneath is a layer of transparent kelly green which also adds a slight touch of green shimmer throughout. The green base may not be noticeable when worn depending on application. These are not free-flowing powders; see the category page for ingredients. *Please note: On rare occasion, there may be a small synthetic fiber from colorant manufacturing in the finished product. We have not received any reports of this occurring, but it is possible. These are not harmful and are easily removed.*
This is the top swatch, applied over primer. Not lip-safe. Bright sunlight can wash out the effect and colors, so we recommend indoor incandescent lighting or indirect sun for photos. Initial color, in this case red-copper, is when the product is viewed straight on, and not in close proximity to bright light. As it is angled, or on the curve of eyelids, the colors dramatically change. Due to the specialized ingredient content, these may not perform well over bare skin. A sticky base is not needed under shades lacking sparkle.
Important information about the main colorants and pricing: These more intense colorants used in these shadows cost more than 10 times as much as our regular changing colorants, and most available are generally not eye-safe (but are used in in nail polish and enamel paint). There are a few manufacturers who produce these as cosmetic grade, but the end product still has to have a percentage limit, so the loose eye shadows may appear slightly muted or dark in the jar. We do not use sifters; a full size jar is full. People with limited color vision will not be able to see all the shade variations.
