Make Up For Ever S314 Nile Green Artist Color Shadow ($17.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a light green with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color coverage in a single layer, though the denser, thicker texture made it harder to apply evenly on the skin and had a tendency to look patchy as a result. If I packed it on with a flat, synthetic brush enough, I could get visibly opaque coverage in person but not perfect in close-up photos. The consistency was rather dense and needed a heavier touch to pickup product well. It lasted for eight and a half hours on me before creasing faintly. The original shade was more shimmery and even lighter with better coverage and evenness in application (see side-by-side comparison).
