Defiance (Powder) is a light, peachy gold with an intense, sparkly finish that was particularly shiny. It had a translucent base, as marketed, which yielded more medium, buildable coverage applied dry and semi-opaque, buildable coverage applied with a dampened brush. The texture was lightly emollient, smooth to the touch, but it was thinner and not at all heavy/thick, which kept it from emphasizing lid texture. There was almost no fallout during application or blending. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours with light fallout over time.
