Also available as pressed! Photos do not capture the true range of colors and depth properly; this will look prettier on application in person. Dark, slightly ruddy metallic pink is filled with a touch of lime green sparkle when viewed straight on. Angled or closer to light it becomes silvery-orange then chartreuse, to Kelly green to a cool deep emerald, and the sparkles become pink.
Utopia is the bottom swatch in all pictures. Swatches are applied heavily over primer. It is very similar in shade range to Symphonic, but has more green, and the pink is warmer. Metallic finish, no black base. This shade is the top swatch, applied over regular primer; swatch is of the pressed version, the loose may appear more vivid. Not lip-safe. Swatches show the shade variations best; it isn't quite as apparent in the product itself, which may appear to have grey hues due to ingredients. Natural light will usually wash out the effect and colors; indoor lighting is recommended for swatches and application photos. Initial color, in this case pink, is when the product is viewed straight on or at a distance, and not in close proximity to bright light. As it is angled, brought toward a lamp, or on the curve of eyelids, the colors dramatically change.
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 commercially 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. 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.
