Coloured Raine Crushin' Vivid Pigment ($6.99 for 0.06 oz.) is a bright, medium coral with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent pigmentation with a soft, fairly smooth, but moderately powdery texture. I struggled to get this shade to apply evenly on my skin with full coverage, even when I tried over eyeshadow primer. It was easier and more functional used to diffuse and blend out other shades in my crease rather than as a lid shade. I also noticed it had a tendency to darken a bit on my lid, which seemed to "eat" this shade within seven hours of wear.
