This shadow has the expected high-quality and performance I would expect from Larenim. However, the Elfin color is a bright green -- too yellowy, too "loud". I'm a brunette medium-fair skin (look best in jewel tones), and I looked too clown-ish in this color. On the other hand, the green in Scale of the Dragon (more brownish-green/blackish green, muted and earthy) is just perfect. I'm sticking with that from now on.
