NABLA Cosmetics Virgin Island Top Coat Wet & Dry Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a brighter, medium blue with subtle cool undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It applied similarly whether I used it dry or with a dampened brush, but using a dampened brush ensured smoother, more even application and less initial fallout. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable with a second layer. The texture was soft, denser but still more loosely-packed in the pan, which is why using a dampened brush (or fingertips) seemed to be a must. This shade lasted well for eight hours with slight fallout over time but was one of the better shades, with respect to fallout, within the Top Coat formula.
