For the Jewel Thief collection, each shadow has these fun names that read like a luxury heist and the pigments are multi-dimensional- not flat at all. The only downside is they have sealed square jars that can spill or poof powder out if you pull the sealant tab too fast. I like sifters better.
Also, I wasn't sure of the weight or ingredients as they weren't listed on the products and I couldn't tell if some were more 'full' than others. But I'm not usually worried about those small issues too much, because none of the items looked scant and I believe the ingredients are listed on the site.
However, the colour payoff in these is extraordinary. This collection was described as offering moisturizing benefits and they did apply smoothly, non flaky, and even over primer (Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy) seemed to stay sleek. Overall, 8 out of 10 (those darn sealed jars).
My LOTD was inspired by those scarily fabulous 80's/90's videos by Robert Palmer "Addicted to Love" and "Simply Irresistable". These women are the 'band' or dancers (ooh the goofy rhythm and bad moves, gack) and each have mega slicked back hair, deep almost violent makeup, and mega watt lips. The startling aspect of it was very raw and honestly, even with the cheeziness of it, I loved it! So I borrowed from that dark, deep makeup to come up with what I did today. But I didn't dance.
