This shade wore a lot like L’Ecole des Femmes. The texture wasn’t really creamy, but it was pliable enough that I was able to get an even layer of color out of it with some tugging but at least the color went on evenly. It had nearly opaque color coverage, and the color lasted for seven hours. I found it lightly drying over time, though it looks drier and feels clingy enough that I was surprised it wasn’t more drying. It doesn’t last the 10-hours as claimed, but it is longer-wearing the most shades in this type of a hue. It does wear away somewhat unevenly from the center first. This is the last shade in the range I bought to review, so expect a round-up soon!
