Ethereal is a pale, lavender base with cool undertones paired with lavender-to-blue shifting sparkle. It had a metallic shine and a sparkly finish on the skin, though it was one of the least sparkly shades in the palette. The consistency was denser without any fall out, but I needed a denser brush to pickup product evenly for good transfer to my cheeks. It applied well and blended out with little effort. This shade lasted for eight and a half hours on me with very minimal shimmer migration over time.
