Flotsam is a darkened, cool-toned gray with a pearly sheen. It had good color payoff, though the texture was slightly stiffer than a lot of the other shades (not hard to work with, but just noticeably different). theBalm Matt McDonald is lighter. Urban Decay Ace is warmer. NARS Mandchourie #2 is slightly cooler-toned. Urban Decay Gunmetal is slightly warmer. See comparison swatches.
