Darling is a medium-dark berry with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage with a smooth, moderately dense consistency that wasn't overly firm or stiff to work with but wasn't as powdery as most of the brand's matte shadows tend to be. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours, though it left a slight stain behind.
