    Rosewood pink with glittering green duochrome. Silky, very blendable and great staying power. So striking with green eyes! A little goes a long way.

    This is one of the most unique shades of eyeshadow I’ve ever had the pleasure to use. To me, it almost has pale purple and green tones when applied. It has a very strong duochrome – it can sometimes seem like you are wearing two shadows instead of just one. It pairs very well with Illusions and Emerald Glow. It applies very easily and can be built up or sheered out to achieve your desired effect.

    This is absolutely one of my favourites from Femme Fatale. I can’t stop wearing it – the burgundy base with the strong teal shift, just hnnnggggg. So beautiful. It’s the perfect work-safe shade with just the right amount of oomph. Best over a slightly sticky base, but equally gorgeous on any trusty eye primer – it just means the teal shift is more subtle tis all. I CANNOT GET OVER THIS SHADE. Beautiful application too!

    This shade is so impossibly unique, especially since it seems to change so much depending on one’s skin tone. The base turns quite a bright reddish pink on me, but it’s very wearable even with my bright red hair and hazel eyes. The striking green shift shows up best over a sticky base, but tones down beautifully over a normal primer to make it a little more work-safe. It applies wonderfully and lasts all day. This shadow is a must have and if you need something to justify placing a Femme Fatale order, this is it. Endless compliments guaranteed.

    Candied Apple owns my heart, simply put. It’s gorgeous with or without primer, and with or without a sticky base (like Fyrinnae’s Pixie Epoxy or Darling Girl’s Glitter Glue), although the sticky base really draws out the gorgeous green duochrome. It’s wearable to work (I wear it nearly daily) or is easily used in a more dramatic look. It applies like a dream. All of the FF shadows I own (ahem…95% of her line) are a fluffy and soft, though, and I really don’t think you could go wrong picking any of them.

    I’ve got hundreds of jars of indie shadows, but this is the one I always make my way back to. :)

    There’s probably a reason why this is Femme Fatale’s best selling shade – it really does suit all skin tones, it seems! The duochrome appears and works well with and without primer, easy to build and is totally stunning with a sticky base if you’re after that extra green sparkle punch. I call this the all-occasion eyeshadow, because it’s taken me through many a wedding/engagement/corporate work day/fighting sharks – you name it!

    Applies like butter, blends easily and is so unique and gorgeous color! It’s everything you want and need from an eyeshadow. Duochrome is strong but doesn’t overpower the base. I love this, it’s just perfect! Seems like a lighter version of Underlord.

    This is one of those shadows that you put on and then can’t stop looking at. The green becomes so glowy, but the red base is neutral enough for any occasion.

    This is a shadow that everyone needs in their collection. It’s a beautiful duochrome that doesn’t need anything more than a simple primer to make it look dazzling. Over primer, the pinky base shines through with a subtle green glow that makes everyone think you’re somehow wearing two different shadows perfectly together. Over a sticky base, the green glow takes over more fully, which also looks pretty amazing. This is the perfect one shadow look for when you’re in a hurry that looks as if you spent a lot longer on your eyes than you really did.

    An utterly perfect eyeshadow for a complex “swipe and go” look! I don’t like pink very much, but I adore this colour. I honestly think it would look good on everyone.

    When people ask what they should order from Femme Fatale, Candied Apple is always the answer. It’s the perfect color to showcase this brand’s talents at duochromes. It has an amazing mauvey pink base with a wonderful green duochrome. It’s great as a one shadow color – swipe it onto the lids and blend out the crease. It also looks breathtaking foiled as liner. The wear time is, as always, excellent and lasts all day.

    Amazing formula, goes on like a dream and somehow looks neutral yet different at the same time. How?? Absolutely love.

    This shadow is absolutely magnificent. I wasn’t expecting much from it when I first swatched it, but it’s stunning. I can’t stop staring at it when it’s on my lids.
    It is fairly cool toned, so if you have warmer undertones it may not be the best shade on you, but it’s still wearable if you blend a slightly warmer brownish pink in the crease and outer corner. This shadow makes me look ever so slightly bruised because I do have warm undertones, but I still adore it. I like to buff out the duochrome just a little bit with my finger so more of the base shows through, which also makes it a little more wearable for me. Overall I don’t think anyone could go wrong with this shadow, it’s incredibly smooth, zero patchiness at all, and would even work well ovrr ordinary primer. It’s magical, and I definitely see why it’s such a popular shade now.

    This shade is everything.

    On me, this is a near perfect dupe for Makeup Geek’s Insomnia or MAC Blue/Brown pigment despite looking dramatically different in the pot.

    It’s very striking and looks gorgeous on it’s own or over other shadows. This is definitely a duochrome that will change colour depending on your skin tone and what base or primer you use. I tried it over a white base and it turned purple! Layering over warm brown shadows really brings out the red base, while layering over a black or sticky base makes the green shift pop.

    For use without a primer, I find the best results spritzing with Fix+

    (Skintone, yellow pale) It is a shimmery beautiful duo chrome. It is quite cool on my skin, more taupe/purple with a green sheen. Which is gorgeous! You can use it as a sheer wash of color. And as a great lid-shade. I like it best with a regular primer. Glitter glues can take a bit of shine away.

    This is the best ever. It is. It looks like you have five eye shadows combined and you spent hours doing your make up, and it is only one shadow!!! It is truly amazing and it suits everyone!!!

    This is an excellent duo chrome that perfectly demonstrates how you can wear makeup that is noticeable and beautiful but still demure and appropriate for more casual or conservative settings. I wear this lightly without a primer and it provides just the right amount of pick me up to an otherwise minimally made up look. It looks very mauve/green in the photos, which it certainly does if applied with primer and moderately heavy, but I also want to recommend using it lightly for a subtle look, which I think is where it really excels.

    Everyone needs this shade. I think it’s a really great “alternative” neutral for anyone wanting something subtle enough for work…but also something that packs a punch. Gorgeous!

    Beautiful color with a great forumla, works really well by itself or blended with other shadows.
