I am still pissed Firefly was canceled, and lets face it some things you just never get over. And while Joss Whedon is still under appreciated in my mind (recent blockbusters not withstanding) some of that Firefly awesome lives on in the Geek Chic Cosmetics collection Big Damn Heroes.
Very Fine Hat
Each of these colors is a solid winner. My favorite is Ambassador. The maroonish shade is neither too bright, nor too dark. It makes a wonderful crease color and looks specially lovely when paired with golds. Inevitable Betrayal is one of those workhorse neutral shades you just can't go wrong with. Very Fine Hat is the only shade I was a little shaky with, but this stems from my own challenges with black based colors. I've seen this this color look like a jeweled golden olive in other swatches, on me the black is very dominant...but I have this problem with almost every black based shadow I own. All that being said, I still think it's a beautiful color and I love using this on the outer crease to deepen a neutral eye.
