Sensuous Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “shimmery purple with flecks of silver.” It’s a medium-dark plummy purple with warm, brown udnertones and a frosted finish. It had nice pigmentation, and the texture was soft and blendable, though it felt a smidgen dry–like it didn’t bind together as smoothly as other shades, but it was still rather easy to work with. I saw very faint signs of fading after eight hours of wear. MAC Universal Appeal (LE, $21.00) is somewhat lighter. Giorgio Armani #27 (LE, $33.00) is cooler-toned. Le Metier de Beaute Fig (P, $30.00) is more intense. See comparison swatches.
