ColourPop The Archer Zodiac Loose Pigment ($6.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark purple base (with warmer undertones) paired with aqua-blue to periwinkle blue shifting shimmer. It had a very finely-milled, velvety consistency in the jar. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, applied wet (with just water), that adhered evenly to my skin, though it was more challenging to soften and diffuse the edges as it dried down. I found it easiest to go back in dry product and risk a bit of fallout to soften the edges instead. This shade retained a lot of its complexity even after it dried down. Applied wet with water, the product lasted for seven hours before creasing and nine hours with slight fading using a setting spray (I used MAC Fix+).
