Heavenly Naturals Dazzle Linda

•••
I hadn't yet had a chance to wear Dazzle Linda, so I threw this look together today. It's such a cool purple, with ruby red glitter in it. I thought that Nyx's Sunny Day would make a great color to pair with it. Heavenly Natural Beauty's Vanilla Crush and Dazzle Linda and their Blushin 16 all seem to be really nice quality products.
