I think that the warmer weather has affected my choice this month. I have steered clear of the matt finish and have plumped for a purple (yes, finally) this month.
MAC describe Satellite Dreams as a deep plum with pearl. I would describe it as a mid tone purple with blue undertones. It is a velvet finish which on the skin has quite a satin finish.
Directly on the skin, the pink undertone comes through more (bottom swatch) but over a base, even a brown cream shadow, it brings out the blue. The finish is not shimmery or super shiny but it does bounce light beautifully. This really is a great colour…. but I am going to have to resist the temptation to fill the rest of the palette with purple shades!
