Orion is a light blue with cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It was hard for me to see the shift in this one; it seemed to get slightly less cool-toned at certain angles, but it always looked like a very light blue to my eye. The texture was smooth to the touch, blendable, and soft without being powdery or loosely pressed in the pan. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was buildable to opaque coverage with two layers. It had a moderate sheen on the skin initially applied, but it could be amplified by using a dampened brush or applying a second layer, though there was slight emphasis of my skin's natural texture at that point. This shade wore well for eight hours on me.
