gorgeous purple with blue iridescence
Take yourself to a whole new plane of sexy with this eye popping purple! Astral Plane will let you experience the planes of sexy, awesome and kick-ass in no time!
If you only buy 1 color from Espionage, it needs to be Astral Plane. It’s a complex and gorgeous purple.
turquoise blue with gold iridescence
Harajuku, loosely translated, means “everything awesome in the world that you ever wanted to see, do, hear, or wear.” Seriously, look it up. And next to its definition, you’ll fall into obsession with the happiest, brightest shade of turquoise known to humankind. This mineral color has been known to dramatically increase the size and adorableness of your eyes with just one application. It’s carrot-underscore-carrot in a jar. ^_^
I love turquoise and when you add gold iridescence to it, it’s even prettier. Plus, I love the name. This is a dusty turquoise with gold iridescence. Even when used foiled or with mixing medium it’s still got a dusty quality.
taupe brown satin
This matte, goldenrod, mineral color gives a subtle warm shimmer to brighten any day. Specifically formulated for contouring and shadowing like a pro!
This satiny brown makes a great crease color or a wash of color on its own. Perfect for a cat eye!
deep green on a brown base
How do you fit a bad ass story of rags to riches to espionage to fighting Nazis and racism into a single color of awesomeness? We’re still working on it. In the meantime, this shimmering color does its best to live up to the super spy’s “Black Pearl” nickname. The dark shades of cocoa swirl with iridescent green for a deadly color you don’t want to mess with.
This is a shade that I consider wood nymph friendly.
warm red matte
A bright, matte, red. Perfect for lip stain, blush, nail color and perfectly safe for your eyes.
Quite vivid, you can make a statement in this red.
If you are looking for new, geek friendly makeup, look no further than Espionage Cosmetics. I’m impressed by the pigmentation and blendability of the shades. I’m especially impressed by the complexity of Astral Plane, as it’s one of the prettiest purples I’ve seen in forever.
