Silk Road II is a soft, light-medium copper with warm, brown undertones and a pearl sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied best with a dampened brush if one wanted to get opaque coverage, as the moderately dusty consistency resulted in some fallout when I tried to build up the color with a dry brush. The eyeshadow did blend out easily and while there was fallout, it didn't seem to sheer out too readily. This shade stayed on well for seven and a half hours on me.
