Danessa Myricks Milky Way is a moderately warm-toned, light beige with a sparkle finish. It is a permanent glitter that retails for $18.00 and contains 0.34 oz.
Danessa Myricks Milky Way Colorfix Foils ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) seemed to have a translucent base that was packed full of silver and gold glitter/sparkle. It contained plastic (PET) glitter, though it was listed as safe for use on eyes, lips, and cheeks.
It had sheer to semi-sheer pigmentation that didn't build up much from there; it was best thought of and used as a layering product to add more sparkle/reflect to anything. I'm not sure why this shade, like some of the other Foils, aren't touted as sheerer since they really don't have much of a base color. The texture was lightweight, fairly spreadable, and most importantly, it had good diffusion of the sparkle so that it yielded an even layer and good distribution of the sparkle/glitter particles.
The formula is quick to dry down, so working one area at a time and working quickly at that was necessary--this is a selling point for the formula, so buyer beware. I did find it was a product that looked its best in motion, aka real life, as it was shiny and twinkling but could look "chunky" in a still photo. It wore well for nine hours with very minimal fallout when used as an eye/cheek product.
As a lip product, it felt smoother than I would have thought, and it had more medium coverage as I could load up the product without concern for blending the edges. It stayed on well for five hours but had noticeable migration of the sparkle/glitter, which was worse if I ate/drank (anything besides water).
