Grand Bal #4 is a light-medium gold with strong, warm undertones and a smooth, metallic finish. The texture was moderately dense, lightly creamy, and very smooth to the touch.
It picked up well with a dry brush and deposited excellent pigmentation in a single layer that adhered evenly to my skin. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.
