Amethyst is a medium-dark, magenta purple with warm, pink undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had medium coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage (two to three layers). The texture was drier, dusty, and prone to sheering out, and of all the shades, I felt like this one was one of the weaker ones and hardest to use effectively. It often appeared patchy and uneven on the skin, and it seemed particularly finicky as it would darken in places. It lasted for seven hours on me before creasing.
