Desert Sand is a soft, light-medium yellow with warmer, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a dusty texture that was a bit thin and felt drier, chalkier to the touch. It wore well for seven hours on me before fading noticeably. THere was some fallout during application with this one, and it was tough to keep it contained (I used it primarily on my brow bone, and it often dropped enough powder that it altered my crease or lid colors).
