Today on our busy schedule we have Femme Fatale Cosmetics (FFC) and I will be chatting with you about the Gemstone collection. The Gemstone Collection are a set of 8 amazing duo – chrome shades that are white based pigments that have a pretty duo - chrome.
Onto pricing for a 5g jar (no sifter) costs $5.75 AUS, the 3g jar has the option of sifter or no sifter for a slight change in price 3g w/ sifter $3.10 AUS and 3g no sifter $3.00 AUS, Sample baggies are $1.00 each. Postage varies depending on the postal method.
Depending on the angle you look at the pigments take on a different appearence, these shades are great to use as a inner-corner highlight as they are quiet soft over base skin or as a soft highlight. However if you really want these colours to stand out they work amazing over a black base as you will see in the photos below. The colours are not easy to photograph but I feel i managed to capture them =)

As you can see these are definetly not opaque shades however they can be layered over other colour to creat complex and individual looks. In terms of must haves I recommend Moonstone, Golden Peridot and Twilight I adore their finishes fantastic for innercorner or as a lower lash colour.
What do you think of white base duo-chromes?

Final thoughts: These shades are very sheer great for inner corner highligh work best applied over a dark base. The duo-chromes lean slightly primary coloured however blend very well. a Sticky base is recommened for these shades to really make them POP.
