Make Up For Ever ME400 Buttrercup Artist Color Shadow ($17.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a bright, sunshine yellow with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had rich pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The texture was slightly creamy, moderately dense but not stiff or difficult to pickup with most brushes. The eyeshadow was easy to apply and blend out along the edges. It stayed on well for 10 and a half hours on me. The new version is slightly less shimmery compared to the original with a less thick texture (see side-by-side comparison).
