JINsoon Epidote is part of the Tibi Collection for fall/winter 2013 which Jin Soon Choi and women’s wear designer Amy Smilovic from Tibi created together. The collection also includes four other shades (Mica, Obsidian, Jasper and Azurite) but this was the one I wanted to spend my cash on.
I purchased this from Sephora with a 20% off deal I had. Amazingly it was the only nail shade I got. I could have bought about 50 of the new Sephora X shades, but I chose to go without any…for now. 😉
The caps pop off the JINsoon bottles for easy application, in case you wondered.
Epidote is an intense green with golden shimmer and a reddish/brown shade-shift under certain lighting. The color shift is definitely more apparent in the bottle than on the nail though. You can see it in lower lighting, but what you mostly see is the vibrant green gold. I’m not complaining though, it’s a really pretty shade. The formula was really nice and covered completely with two coats.
You can see hints of the red/brown in this low lighting photo.
Overall: Regardless of the fact that the duochrome didn’t show up that much on the nail, I still love this shade. It’s such a vibrant looking green and the formula was excellent.
Loving Epidote or passing?
