Quiet Revolution #3 is a bright, medium blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. I'd actually say it was more like a natural matte finish, as it did not appear totally flat and let my skin's natural finish come through a bit. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, velvety texture that wasn't powdery at all but wasn't so dense that it was difficult to blend. The disappointing part about this shade was that it seemed to darken and lose some of its vibrancy a few minutes after it was applied, even over primer. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably after that.
