Americano is a muted, medium earthy brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery texture that had some excess product that kicked up in the pan, but the eyeshadow blended out easily and didn't sheer out too readily. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.
