Retrograde is a rich, coppery brown with green-to-blue shifting sparkle. The texture was looser with obvious texture from the sparkles, and it was hard to control with a dry brush and little transferred off my fingertip when I used it dry. It was easiest for me to use with a dampened brush, which enabled me to get greater coverage and more even application, even when layering over another eyeshadow. It lasted for seven and a half hours but had moderate fallout.
