Cordura I is a medium brown with warm undertones and faint gold pearl over a matte finish. It had more of a semi-matte to satin effect when applied and blended out on my lid. It had good pigmentation, though it did appear a little faded compared to the pan color, though a second layer intensified it noticeably. The texture was soft, slightly dusty, but blendable and easy to work with. This shade stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.
