That little eye shadow pot staring back at you behind Blacktrack? That’s Expensive Pink. Some say that Wet n Wild has a dupe for this colourPenny; haven’t had the chance to try it, so I can’t say much on that. Is L’Oreal’s Pepsy Coral identical to this? When I swatched it in store, I didn’t think so. Expensive Pink is one of those unique colours, and the Veluxe Pearl finish seals the deal. Because of the finish, this is not necessarily your ideal shade for the crease — I tried it on my Bdellium Tools 785 brush, and the result wasn’t horrendous. When swatched, the best way to describe this shadow is, ‘a metallic salmon colour, with a subtle gold sheen’. This is on my lid in my posts on Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye mascara, as well as my post on Fall Beauty Essentials. Can this shade work for everyone? Yes! This works as a lovely lid shade or a very subtle highlight under the brow when done correctly. I’ve been loving this with some Mulch in the crease (using my 785 of course) for a quick, go-to look. If taken on the Real Techniques contour brush, this could also be used a cheekbone highlight — again, if done correctly. This ‘MAC-specific’ colour is one you should go ahead and splurge on for both versatility and uniqueness.
