Clionadh Ice Algae Matte Pressed Pigment ($4.50 for 0.06 oz.) is a bright, mint green with subtle, cool undertones and faint, pink and blue micro-shimmer over a more matte finish. There was enough shimmer paired with a creamier consistency that a bit of the shimmer came through and gave it a more satin-like finish.
It had rich color payoff that applied well to bare skin as the color didn't sheer out too readily but remained blendable along the edges. This shade stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.
As a FYI, the back of the pan said "face" and "lips" as opposed to "face," "eyes," and "lips."
