About the Colour and its pigmentation
This is a pretty, mid-tone blue and although they call it satin you could call it matte if you wanted. It's quite pigmented but not one of the most pigmented they do. A little layering and you'll get the look you want though.
What is the texture like?
The texture is very dry and powdery.
How long does it last and is it easy to apply?
Because it's not that pigmented you will need to apply several layers and a blue base if you want to get serious colour payoff. Being dry it doesn't blend as easily as some of their shadows.
How does the packaging look and how good is its quality?
The packaging is adequate – nothing too exciting, but they stay shut well. They could be a little slimmer to make them more portable.
Is it worth the money?
Most of their shadows are, but not this one. It's not that unique and it's not particularly pigmented.
When to use
This is fine in small areas, but I struggle to cover say the whole eyelid with it as it goes patchy and fades quickly.
