* Photos do not capture the true range of colors and depth properly; this will look prettier on application in person. * This is our most "dark mermaid" color! Sparkling deep lime green on a slight blue tint turns turquoise to silver then bright pink, and hints of the blue show through. Sparkling metallic finish. Not lip-safe. This one was very difficult to capture. Swatches show the shade variations best; it isn't quite as apparent in the product itself. These are our most striking shadows! Product photos were taken under indoor daylight bulbs.Natural light will usually wash out the effect and colors; indoor lighting is recommended for swatches and application photos. Initial color, in this case bright green, 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. A sticky base is recommended to prevent sparkle migration. Swatch shown applied over diluted Pixie Epoxy and taken under a cool daylight bulb, eye application picture was over regular primer.
Important information about the main colorants and pricing: These more intense colorants used in these cost more than 10 times as much as our regular changing colorants, and are generally not eye-safe (but are used in in nail polish and enamel paint). We spent months sourcing and testing colorants which are safe for eye area use with limited percentage in the final product, including having one specially manufactured for us, and have incorporated these into our unique Exquisites eye shadow base with other colorants. 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.
