Femme Fatale - Maddening Whispers

I had no idea what this color was going to look like when it showed up since it seems to look like 3 different colors in swatches so I was just hoping that I liked it. I captured it the best that I could and I think the first picture is a pretty accurate swatch.

The only difference between the two pictures is that the first has partial direct light whereas the second is diffused light only and the swatches look like different colors so, I can see why there is so much variety in the swatches. The first picture is more true to color. The duo-chrome takes over in the shade in natural sunlight but, the holo takes over in fluorescent lighting or direct sunlight.

Maddening Whispers is a complex color because it is holographic, duo-chromatic and also has a shimmer. It seems to be a dark blue to purple shift with a strong linear holo and a green-gold shimmer. The formula is awesome and you could get away with one coat but, I used two.

I am really kicking myself in the butt for ordering this when I did though because Femme Fatale came out with some awesome glitters like a week after I placed my order. Aggh! I will have to wait until a NA stockist gets them in. Harlow & Co told me 2-3 weeks so I will try to pick some up then! :)
