Coloured Raine Cute Vivid Pigment ($6.99 for 0.06 oz.) is a bright, medium lavender with warm, pink undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, somewhat powdery, but it blended out easily and applied evenly to bare skin. The eyeshadow sheered out a bit when I tried to work with it as a lid shade, but it didn't turn patchy or darken too noticeably without primer. The color stayed on well for eight hours on me before it started to fade noticeably.
