Cherry Culture’s Jumbo Shadow Liner in Studio

Cherry Culture’s Jumbo Shadow Liner in Studio

This could have been such a lovely, interesting blue! It wasn't too deep navy, it wasn't too bright. It applied evenly. Sadly, while it was all of those things, it has almost no staying power. Keep in mind, this is medium blue - a color that, no matter what the medium, tends to want to stain or at least leave behind some trace of its application.

Mushroom is a color that sounds like it could be soft, subtle, interesting. It's nearly invisible. That's kind of disappointing. If all you want is the silvery satin-pearl with some faint shadows of color visible beneath it, you're good. But I can't get definition from this color, I get precious little else…I like subtle makeup, but this is too subtle for me, even when I'm trying for a “no-makeup” look.
