Fyrinnae Fantasy Creatures Exquisites Pressed Eyeshadow ($14.50 for 0.07 oz.) often appeared as a bright, gold-green with flecks of richer, cooler green sparkle and shimmer throughout, and then it shifted to a golden bronze to lavender to pale pink. If one could capture the shades of spring and put them in one eyeshadow, this is what it would look like.
While a lot of multichromes can be quite interesting and complex when swatched, they tend to lose a significant amount of that complexity on the lid as it's a smaller space and ends up easier for someone else to see the shift on you than on yourself (and even then, it's not necessarily easy to detect the shifts at the more extreme ends). This shade shifted from warmer gold to the cooler green flecks catching the light to looking slightly pinkish along the edge when I checked for shifts in most lighting--I didn't have to go hunting to catch it. To get it to turn more lavender-mauve-pink, it was at certain angles and lighting but was noticeable.
The texture was uneven on the actual surface of the pan, which was noted by the brand, though the actual eyeshadow went on quite smoothly. It felt drier, almost flaky, so there was light to moderate fallout during application, depending on the method--fingertips and wet brushes yielded the least fallout.
It had opaque pigmentation applied dry as well as when applied over Pixie Epoxy or with a wet brush. The cooler tone of the green shimmer came through more noticeably when applied over a tacky base or with a wet brush. This shade was recommended, by the brand, to be used with a tacky base. I actually found I preferred application with a wet brush, as it helped give me smoother application with minimal fallout but retained all the blendability of a dry eyeshadow (sometimes tacky bases can make it harder to blend out the edges). The eyeshadow stayed on well for eight and a half hours with a touch of fallout over time.

Exquisites are a variation of our popular Arcane Magic eye shadows, but most have stronger color changes and lack an opaque contrasting base color like most of the original line. They appear to change color depending on proximity to light and sharp angle.
