Make Up For Ever I520 Pinky Sand Artist Color Shadow ($17.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a light peach with warm, golden shimmer. It looked significantly lighter swatched and applied to the lid than it did in the pan. The texture was smooth, moderately dense, and a little stiffer than was ideal, as it required a heavier handed approach to pickup product onto my brush. I had no trouble blending out the powder on my lid. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that stayed on well for nine hours on me.
It was not comparable to the previous formula, as it was significantly lighter and more yellow in color (see side-by-side comparison).
