L-R: Sea & Sky, Odd Couple
So I actually expected the orange shade in odd couple would be a bronzey orange but it's more of an peachy apricot color.
swatched on skin:
L: top color, R: bottom color
(the purple is more purple than this swatch shows)
Texture-wise both colors do not apply as smoothly as I would expect. The top color has a TON of fall out and a ton of glitter. Pigmentation-wise, the color intensity can be built up. It really is an odd couple pairing since I would not normally pair these 2 colors together but they seem to work :)
SEA & SKY:
L: bottom color, R: top color
Seriously how beautiful is that bottom color? I never wear blue eyeshadows because it's really not as easy as people think it is to pull it off but seriously I cannot get rid of this eyeshadow because I love swatching and staring at it lol And the pale blue is much easier to wear even though it is a little frostier than I usually prefer. Everything I swatch is without using a base so I'd expect with a base the colors are even more vibrant! ^^~ This is actually a pretty good shadow duo for a simple blue smoky eye =D
and all 4 swatched:
S&S bottom, S&S top, OC top, OC bottom
So it seems like the top color of the mineralized duos are the lighter color and are much frostier/have glitter whereas the bottom colors are deeper and more of a metallic sheen.
These were limited edition but then they brought them back and now I think they're gone again? Who knows? I believe they retailed for $19.50 but I think all mineralized eyeshadow duos had their prices raised to $20 or so. I found these at my local CCO (yay for outlets) for almost half that and although these don't get the wear they deserve I do like owning them.
Do you own any mineralize eyeshadow duos?
