Danessa Myricks Rootbeer Colorfix Metallic ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a deep red with warmer undertones and a pearly sheen. It was intensely pigmented where a little went a very long way, so use less than you think to avoid over-applying (which was harder to correct due to the quick-setting nature of the formula, particularly on eyes/cheeks where blending was more necessary!).
The texture was lightweight, thin but not too thin, and spreadable. I liked using a flat, synthetic brush to apply it to my lid and a fluffy, clean brush to diffuse the edges but definitely worked very quickly to do so! It was workable as a cheek color, but I found it hard to blend it fast enough to get a really seamless edge and used leftover foundation to stipple over the edges to "cheat" the edge. It was easiest to apply as a lip color as it yielded opaque, even coverage that was semi-flexible as it dried down but transfer-resistant.
It lasted nicely for 10 hours as an eyeshadow, nine hours as a cheek color, and six hours as a lip color, though it was slightly drying as a lip product.
