Barry M Dazzle Dust in 87 CORAL swatches

This is one color I was aching to get and I ended up buying it for my birthday. I can believe it's my birthday again in a few months and I'm only just swatching these. :) 
Barry M Dazzle Dusts are something I honestly enjoy collecting.

 The reason I wanted it was it's named coral and pictures online looked really lovely. I got in, yet in person I am not to thrilled about this one. Color is gorgeous but it is very very frosty, although the frost is finely milled and has no glitter which is a massive plus in my book. It's just that ... I would love to find a satin finish of this type of coral.

it's one of those shades that look phenomenal in the pot, look lovely swatched on a firm skin of the back of my hand, but when applied on eyes with crease-y lids like mine, the shimmer tends not to look to flattering.  It has what I call "fully, airy texture"; the type of product that just floats around in a  cloudy haze when you tap it off your brush. A lot of the times its means poor pigmentation. #87 Coral is not exactly sheer, on the sheerer side rather.

So here are the swatches I look if you want to have a closer looksy: 

I thought I'd try to use it as a shimmery blusher ceause it is literally the perfect color and shade for a pale Ol Yellow, like me. I tried on and it blended nicely, it took away loads of the shine. I felt the pigmented actually adhered to the skin and you can see the end result was shiney and glowy enough on its own. No need for a seperate highlighter here.
I am
on the fence about this shade, I love it yet I don't think it's a nice finish on my eyes.

@Victoria; It's mainly because of how my skin on the lids is textured, anything shimmery is a hazard.

@Mateja Mateja
Prvič slišim za Hot Spice, ampak Fig je fantastična.

I like it as a blush, with the shine it can almost be a nice highlight, thanks =)
