Make Up For Ever S516 Sand is a very warm-toned, light-medium yellow with a satin finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $17.00 and contains 0.08 oz.
Make Up For Ever S516 Sand Artist Color Shadow ($17.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a light-medium yellow with stronger, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The bigger downside was it did not swatch remotely close to how the color appeared in the pan. It had excellent pigmentation with a smooth, blendable consistency that wasn't powdery nor was it too firmly pressed in the pan. The color stayed on well for 10 hours on me. Unfortunately, as was common in the Satin finish, there wasn't consistency in color between the original formula and the new one; the original shade was darker and more of a peach/orange than a yellow (see side-by-side comparison).
