The Prose and Fancy is pretty cool - it looks green in pics (almost like Meadowland) but IRL - it's more of a muted blue-green... (see pic... little better of an idea) I thought the Oceanique was a little too similar to stuff I have already, so I didn't get it... but if you see it in person, and you like it, then go for it!

It's kind of like a muted down Brill. A little less of a bright green - but I think I could get a similar look if I put on Brill with a light touch. I dunno I might pick it up eventually, just to pair with something else when I want a little more muted look. (And just because I like buying shadows!) lol

Oceanique is a pretty light taupe with some frost. I don't have anything like it, but if you're gonna buy from the D'Bohemia collection, I like D'Bohemia & Bagatelle the best, as eyeshadows go. And I LOVE Flash of Flesh lipglass.

i like oceanique. it's not so glittery with big glitter particles, but it's shimmery. it looks silver in the pot, but it looks kind of gold/taupe color when you put it on. it's like it adapts to your skin color.

Hmmm... I might have to take another look at that.
The lights in there might have made it seem a little different..

oh, i also like bagatelle. it's kind of similar to the tan color that's in the brown diana eyes palette though, maybe a tad lighter.

Bagatelle is cool because it comes off as a muted gold on the skin. I've recommended it to people who want a gold shadow but are scared by something like Goldmine or Amber Lights.

paradisco isn't a shade i'd ever own, so i don't think i'll be getting d'bohemia

definitely swipe the oceanique on your hand so you can see how it kind of changes on your skin tone.
