Make Up For Ever ME116 Silver Artist Color Shadow ($17.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium silver with subtle, neutral-to-cool undertones and a pearly sheen. The pigmentation was good, while the texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and moderately dense. It worked best with flat, synthetic brushes using a pushing and pulling method to dislodge product and to apply to the lid (again, common technique for denser, more silicone-heavy formulations in my experience). It applied evenly to my lid and blended out nicely. This shade wore well for nine and a half hours on me.
The new version is darker and less metallic (but has a smoother shine) (see side-by-side comparison).
