Crystal can be described as a greyed, muted grey mulberry with warm undertones in a full coverage cream formula.

So Crystal to me is not a grey, I'll show it next to Abigail and Dove, its got a much more pink undertone.  Crystal has a great formula, no running or pooling and opaque in one sweet coat, she also stamps well.

The original Crystal was realised in 2010 in the Fire and Ice collection, I all of them except Gloria who is discontinued.

Yesterday I was supposed to get my botox for migraine treatment but I explained that the last round hadnt been as effective as the others so we've decided to try the new CGRP meds that are available for chronic migraine warriors.  I've got some reading to do and then make a decision as to which to try first.  Last pic is Mr Handsome sitting in the window spying on the neighbours this morning :).


  1. Crystal is quite a nice colour! I agree with you—it's not a grey! However, I can see why they grouped it under "Grey"; it would look far too grey with other pinks, I think. The original Crystal is nice too; I have Sarah! I hope whichever new medication you choose helps! :)

    1. I actually put the new Crystal with my nudes and it fits in nicely with the taupe undertoned ones.

    2. Oh, I didn't think of that! Yes, that makes sense :)

    3. I'm doing my weekend mani but I'll take a pic of the nudes with Crystal and post it.

    4. How does crystal compare to eastyn? Is crystal darker and less purple than eastyn?

    5. I pulled them out and they are very close! I'll put them in a compairson with the others.

    6. Thank you ! I have eastyn and was wondering how they compare to each other . I’m sucker for light taupe that takes on a lavender hue .
