I swear I cannot express how much I love these products. I finally switched from being obsessed with starwonder to light year. I had just been using the light peachy part of light year as a highlight, but today I decided to really use it as a full on blush and concentrated my brush on the rose veining and gold swirl... it was as if NARS deep throat and Luster had a baby. I have been searching up and down for a blush that has a similar golden sheen to Luster in ANY other color for about two years(I am all about the sheen, shimmer, and sparkle) and this has that same effect.
Heres some Stratus pictures for fellow pale ladies. I know a lot of people were wondering how this looks on paler skin. So I thought my arm was nc-15, but I guess it's already lost the little tan I was able to pick up and its back to being nc-10.
Heavy Swatches: L to R: Swirl color (idk how to describe it), mixed color, dark purpley color.
FLASH NATURAL LIGHT
Blended out on my arm with a blush brush (Hakuhodo 210). You can see it just adds a lovely hint of plummy color. It's very wearable!
