Problems on Deck

These are the pigments featured in the Rose Romance collection ... I love Mutiny even though it does go on more sheer than I had previously thought. Circa Plum however, true to these types of purples and my skin, looks dirty when applied. It is such a pretty pigment in the jar ... but like so many other muddy purples it just doesn't flatter me well.

Also ... please excuse the messy liner ... my child told me in the midst of applying it that it was raining because the sun had run out of batteries ... and I about choked with laughter!


All products/tools are MAC unless otherwise stated.
