Matte Nude is a soft peach with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It darkened a few shades when layered over the included primer. It had semi-sheer coverage on its own with a very powdery texture that kicked up a ton of excess (which, given there's a cream-based primer, ensured that the primer always had some powder in it from one of the many, powdery shades in the palette!). Patted on top over the primer, there was only moderate fallout instead of most of the eyeshadow below the lid instead of on it but it wasn't as blendable as it seemed to stick a bit too strongly. Thankfully, the lightness of the hue made that more forgiving than it would have been with deeper shade. It lasted for eight hours over the included primer.
