Hard Candy, Mr. Wrong
What, exactly, is this color?
Purple? Pewter? Gold? That weird, classy, and wonderful purpley-taupe that's become famous lately, highlighted of course by Chanel Paradoxal?
For that matter, what, exactly, is this finish? Foil? Jelly shimmer? Irregularly-shaped glitter?
I'm not entirely sure. All and none of the above, probably. Mr. Wrong is the (revamped) Hard Candy's showstealer, a dusty sheer purple that encases irregularly-shaped pale gold flakes that come together to create a foil finish. The conglomeration of colors playing with light is probably what causes it to look the way it does. It's gorgeous, complex, and blends in perfectly with my yellow-toned skin, and takes three coats for opacity.
The gold is far more predominant indoors than out, where it just takes on the shine from the sun. :)
On a more personal note, this is the second time I wore Mr. Wrong. The first time I wasn't sure whether or not I liked it, and it just confused me. Still, I received a ton of compliments on this color, including one from a friend who's not fond of either shimmer or purple. I'm glad I gave it a second try. I think this color is great, and well worth its price and the trek to Walmart. It may just make my favorite go-to list (which, if you wanted to know, is tagged under HG in this here blog)... but I might need to wear it one more time to make sure. :P
