Louvre at First Sight is a muted, medium-dark red with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was almost grainy; it felt drier and looser to the touch, though it blended out significantly better than I anticipated in practice. It had buildable pigmentation from medium to semi-opaque but needed a primer or white base to really apply true-to-pan in color. It wore well seven and a half hours on my skin before I noticed fading.

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.
