Melba is a soft, faded coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, which was easy to pick up with a brush. I found the texture to feel a little drier and thinner, so it applied best over drier (or powdered) skin and had a tendency to look a little splotch over normal skin (or liquid/cream foundation). I have more normal skin on my cheeks, so I had to spend extra time to buff the edges out. It lasted well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.
