I purchased this.
Mercury is described as "an antique rose taupe with a beautiful gold shimmer." I actually don't see the gold shimmer in Mercury--to me, it's a rose taupe with a silver-blue shimmer, but maybe my eyes are wonky?
Neptune is described as "a rich, warm chocolate brown with amazing blue and teal sparkles." The reason I paired these two together is I thought I saw blue in Mercury, and I thought it paired beautifully with the blue and teal in Neptune.
I'm really in love with both colors (but Mercury in particular!) and wanted to show you guys what truly gorgeous colors they are.
