Opal is an iridescent white/blue/purple.
24K is a pale col-toned gold.
Rose Quartz is a light pink/gold.
Amethyst is a medium purple/grey/pink.
These liquid drops can be used over eyeshadows to add shimmer, or on their own as shadow or on the face as a highlighter. All you need is one drop and you get a lot of sparkle. I think they definitely work best over another shadow or as a highlighter. On their own as a shadow they don’t have enough pigmentation and coverage for me. I really love Rose Quartz as a cheek highlight shade, so pretty!
Copper Lustre is a shimmery cool-toned light copper.
Black Cherry is a deep blackened red.
Cobra Mascara is a jet black.
Cobra Mascara curls, lengthens and volumizes lashes. It has a wand that actually is cobra shaped, which I have not seen before. It does a really good job of lengthening my lashes and giving them a bit of volume as well. The wand doesn’t deposit too much product, so I didn’t have any clumping. It’s enriched with panthenol, vitamin E and keratin to help condition lashes. It’s a pretty good mascara in my book.
