Flashbeams is a light-medium peach with warm, orange undertones and a metallic finish. The texture was rather dense, almost like a firmer cream, and it was thicker than typical shimmery MAC eyeshadows. It applied best with firm, flat synthetic brushes or fingertips as a result. It had good pigmentation that applied decently but really had to be pressed and pushed onto the skin to even out. This shade wore well for eight hours on me before creasing faintly.
