I was a little bit traumatised at the sight of this shade when I pulled it out of the bag. I mean, it’s orange. A proper pumpkin-esque shade that I would imagine to work best on olive skintones. Boy, was I wrong. This is pretty much the only orange in the world that I can wear without looking like a try-hard.
It still has the vibrancy that you might want from this kind of shade but it has a subdued edge and a beautiful autumnal vibe that complements rather than screams at pink-toned skin. A certain dusty quality that I’ve always loved in my purple shades, translating terrifically to something I’d least expect. Opaque in a couple of coats, creamy and warm. Lovely.
The bad news is? It’s being discontinued so don’t expect to be able to find it once Autumn rolls around again.
