Duchess is a sparkling bronze with warmer undertones. The consistency was chunkier, due to the larger sparkles in it, and it did not apply as smoothly to bare skin. This would be the type of texture I would recommend using with a damp brush and/or a glitter primer, as more of the sparkle/glitter would translate on the eye that way. When I blended this shade out, a lot of the sparkle came loose and some of the base color appeared ragged. The majority of the eyeshadow lasted for a solid seven and a half hours, but there was noticeable fallout.
