Some Kind of Wonderful is a light-medium gold with moderately warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, so it was more pigmented than as described. To get sheerer, more buildable coverage, I'd recommend using a more rounded brush and gently tapping the surface. The powder had a smooth, lightly creamy consistency with no powderiness. The color went on evenly and blended out with little effort, and the finish didn't emphasize my skin's natural texture. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours on me before showing signs of wear.
