Make Up For Ever D826 Fig Artist Color Shadow ($17.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish plum with warm undertones and a metallic sheen that had flecks of larger sparkle strewn throughout. The consistency was denser in the pan, and it took heavier pressure to pickup product on my brush, but it blended out a lot better than I expected on the lid. It seemed to "melt" slightly as I worked it on my lid along the edges. It had opaque color payoff that wore nicely for 10 hours with very little fallout. The new shade is very similar in color to the previous formula, but the consistency of the original formula was creamier and thicker (see side-by-side comparison).
