Armenian is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. The pigmentation was opaque and true-to-pan in a single layer. The eyeshadow's texture was smooth, dense without being too firm or stiff to work with, and it blended out nicely without losing its intensity. However, I noted that it did not seem to look quite as shimmery on the lid after a few minutes compared to the initial swatch; in order to get the sheen to remain, I had to use it with a dampened brush. On its own, it wore well for eight hours on me.
