Kauai II is a medium-dark purple with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nearly opaque color coverage that was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer on top. The texture was soft, yielding, and a smidgen dusty in the pan, but it was easy to apply and blend out on bare skin and did not appear dry nor have any issues with fallout. This shade lasted for just over eight and a half hours on me.
