There’s almost some gold and green visible in this color, when the light hits it at just the right angles. Coverage isn’t as even as I’d like, but that can be avoided by foiling it with a bit less water than I used. This is almost a “faded” version of Fyrinnae’s Zanzibar.
This color glows. It doesn’t have a gold shimmer like I thought it might; but it’s very vivid. Two coats gave me solid, even coverage. Adding a third didn’t give me extra flash, depth, or other effects.
These are ready-to-wear colors! You don’t have to mix them with other ingredients to keep them from falling off your face. (It can help…but it’s not required, as is the case with straight micas or oxides.) I like the shades in these collections, and they’ve got pretty good coverage when applied wet, or to a still-damp base. Applied over regularly-applied primer, they can lose a little intensity.
Makeup Revolution’s answer to Urban Decay’s various Naked palettes were the Iconic Redemption palettes. The color matches are fairly close. I don’t know how the eyeshadow quality compares, because I don’t own any of the UD palettes. But I can say that at USD$10 or below, these are a decent value - fairly good, for drugstore-range makeup.
The base color leans reddish, but not strongly or obviously so. The pearl finish softens that further, so this brown coordinates with more colors than might be expected. I’m not sure what this was an “oops” of - possibly Climbing Chaos or King Under The Mountain.
Some of the ingredients for the eyeshadow Brisket were discontinued, so Emily reformulated it and gave it a new name. It’s got less of the gold shimmer that the original Brisket had, so this color appears more red than the original did…but looking at them carefully, I think the base shades are awfully similar. The color payoff is about the same, application is good on both colors.
It’s interesting how two separate indie companies ended up making eyeshadows with the same name, that were almost reverse-images of each other. Persephone Minerals’ Moon Prism Power looks green in the pot and has a red, almost pink, interference layer. Shiro’s Moon Prism Power is the exact opposite.
