Customer Testimonial

"I use (and love, love, love!) your Pearlesecent Micas which get me compliments all the time, from coworkers to makeup artists at swanky cosmetic counters. It's cool because people are always asking me where I bought my eyeshadow and it's satisfying to say, "I didn't buy it-- I made it!" As someone with a darker-than-medium skin tone, it's great to be able to blend my own colours that actually show up on me, e.g., 1 part Golden Glow to 1 part Matte Orange = "Yummy Peach"."
