Karma is a deep blue with cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good color coverage applied dry but was truly opaque when applied with a dampened brush. The texture was fairly smooth, blendable, and was one of the easier shades to workk with in the palette, but it was prone to fading after applying it. At first, I thought I just over-blended, but after the third attempt to apply the color for vibrancy, it was obvious that it was how the eyeshadow was going to look perpetually--a bit faded. More navy blue than cobalt blue as it had initially appeared on my lash line. The color stayed on well for eight hours before creasing on me.
