Charade II is a medium-dark lavender with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff that was buildable to medium coverage over bare skin and semi-opaque coverage over an eyeshadow primer. It blended out decently but had some fallout as the consistency was drier, somewhat powdery, and prone to sheering out on my lid. This shade stayed on well for seven hours before fading noticeably.
