Danessa Myricks Muse Colorfix Metallic ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a deep, dirty gold with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The sparkle was was larger, flakier, and often looked like "dirt" when I sheered the product out, so that was more noticeable when I used it as a cheek product. When worn at higher opacity as an eyeshadow, it looked sparkling. As a lip product, it looked and felt crunchy, textured, and dry, which made it uncomfortable to wear and led to weaker longevity.
The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and quick to dry down (as marketed), and it functioned best as an eyeshadow worn at medium to opaque coverage as I was able to diffuse and blend out the edges without an issue. The thicker, chunkier texture resulted in a lip color that was uneven, emphasizing of texture, and separated along lip lines, while it lasted for four to five hours, it flaked off in larger chunks during wear. It lasted for nine hours with light fallout over time as an eyeshadow.
