Trait de Caractere #3 is a dark, reddish brown with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that did not build up well but actually seemed to diffuse and sheer out on the lid. The more I applied, the more product I had underneath my eye rather than on it, even when applied over an eye primer. The texture was drier, dusty, and wasn't the easiest to blend out. It lasted for six hours on me.
