Bayadere #1 is a light-medium, golden copper with warm undertones and a sparkling finish. The texture felt drier and a bit more loosely-pressed into the pan, which resulted in flecks of sparkle separating from the base color making it a messier formula to work with. I'd recommend using this with fingertips or a dampened brush, which yielded smoother, more even and higher coverage without a lot of work. It lasted well for eight hours but had some fallout over time (worn dry).
