Danessa Myricks Wild Orchid is a very cool-toned, medium-dark purple with a sparkle finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $18.00 and contains 0.34 oz.
Danessa Myricks Wild Orchid Colorfix Metallic ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a rich, darker purple with cool undertones and a more frosted finish with faint sparkle throughout. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin.
I was able to diffuse the edges better as an eyeshadow than as a blush, which made sense to me as this was quite pigmented but very quick to dry down (which is a selling feature of the product, per the brand) and I needed to sheer it out more on cheeks vs. eyes. I'd recommend using a bit of foundation to soften the edge when trying to use it as a cheek color. I had no trouble applying it as a lip product, and I remained surprised at how the formula has a full dry down but has some flexibility to it on my lips.
It wore well for 10 hours as an eyeshadow and nine hours as a cheek product. It lasted well for five and a half hours as a lip product but smudged a bit around the edges of my mouth after a meal and felt a little drying over time.
