Les Nuees #2 is described as a "white." It's a bright, cool-toned white with a frosted, metallic finish. The texture was very soft but a little crumbly, so it didn't apply as evenly as you might expect. It had fairly good color payoff but could have been more intense. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. This type of shade is easily duped. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
