Danessa Myricks Mermaid Colorfix FoilsDanessa Myricks Mermaid Colorfix Foils ($18.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is a brighter, medium blue with subtle, cool undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that was best applied in thinner layers. I'd highly recommend squeezing out a little product onto the back of your hand or onto a metal palette, then picking up product with a fluffy brush to diffuse and apply to the skin. Applying with a fingertip or a flat, synthetic brush resulted in a thicker layer of product that tended to get gummy as it set, which resulted in chunkier texture and made it harder to get an even result.
I think the effect can be "worth it" because it had a ton of shine and shimmer, plus stellar wear (10 hours without fading or creasing), but I definitely find the finish to be difficult to work with, even after having a lot of experience with the formula at this point.
