Charade I is a soft, light mauve with strong, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation but was drier and dustier, which resulted in a more powdery appearance on my skin--it did not blend as well with other shades either. Unlike a lot of the other shades in the formula that looked seamless and almost "melted" on my skin, this made my lid space look drier. It sheered out to medium coverage without a primer. It lasted for seven hours on me.
