Make Up For Ever ME654 Cauldron Artist Color ShadowMake Up For Ever ME654 Cauldron Artist Color Shadow ($17.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium-dark, golden bronze brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It was less metallic than I expected given the finish type. The texture was smooth to the touch, but it could have been more yielding instead of as dense as it was, which would have made it easier to pickup product with a brush and apply it to the lid. It had good pigmentation that applied best in short, patting and pressing motions and then diffusing the edges as needed. The color stayed on well for 10 hours on me before fading slightly.
The previous version had a better formulation, as it was more blendable, a bit more pigmented, and was also richer in warmth/color overall (see side-by-side comparison).
