Desert Lightning is a pale beige with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery consistency, but it was finely-milled and blendable without losing too much of its coverage. This shade lasted well for seven and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

These saturated shadows in neutral and metallic shades and multiple finishes stay on all day long with non-creasing, eight-hour wear. The result: potent colour payoff that applies evenly, blends well and can be used wet or dry.
