Dazzle Dust #39 Tan swatches

Hey darlings :) 

Here is another good one form my Barry M Dazzle Dust collection, number 39 Tan. 
If you are like me and you find Beige and Fawn pretty to look at but too borning and sheer when applied then Tan is a much better version for you. I'm not going to repurchase neither Beige or Fawn, I'm completely converted to Tan.

Direct sunlight
Tan is a
champagne beige with pink depth. The best part is that it has warmth to it. Luckily it's light enough for it not to lean too orange on me despite being warmish eyeshadow. I find it hard to describe this color because it definately reminds me of something  yet my memory fails me at pin-pointing what that is. Pinky bronze in a beige format is my best guess.

Texture is a bit dry but  I always prefer wet application with most of my loose shadows. This isn't hydrophobic so it foils like melted butter. It's the satuarted type of eyeshadow with great pigmentation. I'm fair so there is a great chance that deeper skintones would make this look more of a highlight lid color. For me it's dark enough to put in the crease.

I haven't worn it with all bases or primers yet, just wet or over DG Cosmetics Giltter Glue and over a layer of loose mineral foundation.

I felt it gave a lot of interest to my eyes and it was still neutral but not boring. This may differ, I can see this could be a very universal color for everybody, it just may not be a very universal finish. It's very shimmery and metalic, like your average mineral eyeshadow. But unlike Fawn and Beige, this doesn't have prominent white frost, it's warm like I already mentioned.

It's a great color for summer, thinketh I.

I have a doubt... Is the Tan similar to the Lily Lolo eyeshadow Vanilla Shimmer? I already have the Vanilla Shimmer so I don't want to buy the same thing...

@Miasara: I do not own Vanilla Shimmer so it hard to tell, but looking at online swatches VS seems to be more of a highlight color.

Tan is definately too packed with color to be used as a highlight.
