The finishing touches have been made to these silky, smooth and vibrant cheek colors! Part of the “Brilliant Deductions” collection, and inspired by SHERLOCK, these are perfectly paired with any of the 21 eyeshadow shades that were released last September!
They have a soft duochromatic glow and are extremely wearable. While these appear to be sparkly direct sunlit closeup shots, in person (and under regular lighting) these are not overly sparkly, nor are they completely matte, either. When they are applied, there is very little visible sparkle and more of a soft glow. These shades are vegan, cruelty free, and safe for use on the lips. SHOP!
About the swatch grids: In these swatch grids, we photographed the product itself, then the large skin swatch is over light primer, to show the color effects. In the upper right corner, it is the natural application picture- just applied to the skin with a brush. These apply very smoothly and are silky, and sheer- you can also pat some of these colors onto your lipbalm or lipgloss. They are GORGEOUS on the lips, especially “Have you Seen my Skull” and “Purple Shirt of Sex”
First up, is the much-requested “Purple Shirt of Sex”, a rich purple blush with copper/green soft duochrome, styled after Sherlock’s tightly-fitted D&G purple shirt, summed up HERE. We tend to stay “tame” with our names and not venture into color names that are this blatant, but we couldn’t keep ignoring your requests in our inbox and tumblr message box! Enjoy this awesome blush color, and wear with pride!
Next up is “NOT MY DIVISION”, which is a vibrant coral toned blush with a soft violet/pink duochrome. Inspired by the ever-present Lestrade meme, here is a master post if you’re curious!
“All lives end. All hearts are broken. Caring is not an advantage, Sherlock.”
This is a soft scarlet blush with a cool toned soft duochrome effect. Watch this Mycroft/Sherlock scene, HERE.
Honey, You Should see me in a Crown… This is a vibrant silky rose pink, with a soft green/teal duochrome, which shows up well in person! See Moriarty, as the inspiration for this color, HERE.
HAVE YOU SEEN MY SKULL? is a rich wine/berry toned blush with a soft gold/copper duochrome finish. In honor of Sherlock’s constant issues with the location of his skull.
Dr John Watson: Have you talked to the police?
Sherlock Holmes: Four people are dead. There’s no time to talk to the police.
Dr John Watson: So why are you talking to me?
Sherlock Holmes: [morosely] Mrs. Hudson took my skull.
Dr John Watson: So I’m basically filling in for the skull?
Sherlock Holmes: Relax, you’re doing fine.
