Dominique Cosmetics Daydreamer is a moderately warm-toned, dark brown with a metallic finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $20.00 and contains 0.27 oz.
Dominique Cosmetics Daydreamer Beautiful Mess Liquid Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.27 oz.) is a darker, reddish-brown base with flecks of lighter gold and bronze sparkle and shimmer. It had semi-opaque coverage--far more than most shades in the range--with a chunkier, thicker consistency that was less watery and thin.
It was easier to work with the included-applicator, as the thicker consistency wasn't as prone to streaking and enabled me to get a more even layer of shimmer and color. I still found a separate brush was easier to work with, but I was able to use a fingertip gently diffuse and soften the layer of product if I used the included doe-foot applicator. I wouldn't apply a second layer as it created a very thick, texture emphasizing level of product that cracked and flaked over time--so no, not buildable. You get one layer and you work with it! With one layer on, it lasted well for 10 hours with very slight flaking after eight or so hours.
