Ministry is a deep navy blue with cool undertones and a metallic finish. It had good pigmentation with a fairly dense, slightly stiffer texture. Of all the shades in the palette, this one was the "hardest" to use as it was so dense compared to the rest. It worked best as a lid shade, as the edges could look a bit ragged when blended on its own. The eyeshadow stayed on for eight hours before creasing slightly on me.
