Danessa Myricks Alien is a very warm-toned, medium duochrome with a sparkle finish. It is a permanent glitter that retails for $18.00 and contains 0.34 oz.
Danessa Myricks Alien Colorfix Foils ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) seemed to have a translucent base with finer and larger shimmer and glitter particles that shifted from copper to pink. It contained plastic (PET) glitter, though it was listed as safe for use on eyes, lips, and cheeks.
The consistency was more fluid when initially squeezed out of the tube, but it dried down quickly (which is a selling feature of the formula) and felt tackier and more prone to pilling/bunching up on itself when I worked with it--even as it was drying down--so I found this shade particularly difficult to work with. It seemed to dry down even faster than the matte/metallic finish in my experience.
I think the end result, because it was quite glittery, looked better in person (as one moves) than swatched alone, but it is definitely a product that can't be looked at too closely. It had semi-sheer color coverage that applied somewhat evenly but was hard to really spread and blend out perfectly. Once it dried down, it was fairly budge-proof.
It wore well for nine hours with very minimal fallout as an eye and cheek product. It wore well for five hours but had noticeable migration as a lip product, which degraded more readily if one ate with it on (water was okay, coffee was not). I found it easier to apply a little more product on my lips to get more coverage compared to eyes/cheeks.
