Before I got to the Kaleidoscope when it arrived, I had fun with the box, shown below and autographed by our friend, Dustin. That extra touch is always sweet.
The colors, from top to bottom are Flush, a matte, buttery pink; Lambent, a gleaming turquoise; Refulgent, matte/satin coral; and Ultraviolet, a gleaming lilac. It should be clear that none of them are duplicates from prior Kaleidoscopes. Dustin made sure of that.
The green and lilac colors are almost incandescent - hence the name, I'm sure. They pop on the skin. Both pastels (all shades, actually) are applied heavily in my swatch photos, but you can apply these colors with a brush and a light touch and achieve a pastel wash of color with ease. They are very pretty for summer. If you're tan, they will flatter you enormously.
I am sorry to show you something that's officially sold out. However, if you want Pallid Incandescents, call Dustin at (212) 872-8612 and ask to be put on a waiting list. Tell him Charlestongirl encouraged you. You never know how things will work out.
