October Odyssey (Light) is a medium, rosy pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. When compared to other warm-toned pinks, it looks more mauve and almost cool-toned, though the base is definitely slightly warm, almost pinky-coral when really diffused and blended out. The press was balanced between soft and firm to allow for more control over blending it out/sheering it out as it is the lightest matte in the Light palette.
Inspiration: Originally, the color story was working off of a darker plum being one of the deeper more neutral shades in the palette (with Midnight Courage being the darkest matte shade overall), but once we decided to do Light/Deep versions for October Odyssey and Infinite Echoes, I moved October Odyssey into a lighter, softer direction--a rosy pink--so it would be the lightest matte in the palette.
Behind the Name: The best things happen in October--the blog started in October, hubby and I started dating in October, and we got married in October!
The Light version was initially described as a "matte, medium rosy plum." The first version was a little too light and too cool-toned (wow!), but with the adjustment of the original Infinite Echoes being made the Light version (instead of the Deep version), the cooler version paired better with it after all.
