Cloudy Afternoon is a slightly gray-brown with a silvered edge. It has a frosted finish. When applied dry, it looks less brown and has some sheerness, while when applied damp, it holds together better. I applied this to my lid, and it looked mostly gray, because it tends to lose the character it takes on when applied damp once it dries down and “settles” in a way. theBalm Selfish is darker and browner. NARS Grand Palais is browner. More like Bobbi Brown Rockstar, which had subpar pigmentation.
