I'm still working on it. I got Fireside (deep plum with green duochrome), Frost at Midnight (dark blue violet), and Silver Birch (grey with peach veining). I knew that FS and FaM were quite dark. But the SB i ended up with was also dark - I can only hope that as i work my way through it it will get lighter. Because of the shape of my eyelids (i'm over 60 and gravity is taking its toll) i rarely wear dark eyeshadows on my lids, so i'm working on ways to wear them that don't make me look like i missed 3 nights' sleep.
The PPs (Pressed Pigments) are working pretty well to lighten and brighten: Sweet Acting on my lid with Fireside in the crease, or Amethyst on the lid with FaM in the crease.
But I'm a little sad because i love the unpredictable colors that come from swirly MESs, and in the crease they don't get to be on display enough. I may need to try them on the lid with a light shimmery liner. I have Let's Skate PP (Paint Pot) which should work with Fireside, Catch My Eye Fluidline may work with Silver Birch, and i can try Heirloom Eye Kohl with FaM. I may need to add something non-shimmery just above my crease - i don't use highlighter under my brows any more because i'm getting to feel like it's a cliché and my skin care products make them light reflective enough.
My local MAC has the new Paint Pots in, so i'm going to test them tomorrow or Sunday.
Do you have Idyllic p/p? It looks awesome under Fireside.
