Sandstorm is a medium-dark, copper-shimmered brown with warm undertones and a slightly frosted, metallic finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, and this shade didn’t apply as evenly as the rest, though from afar it was not too noticeable. The color lasted three and a half hours on me. MAC Carnal Instinct (LE, $16.00) is darker. Chanel Synopsis (P, $34.00) is lighter. MAC Sheer Plum (P, $16.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.
