Underworld II is a muted, medium-dark blue with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, while the texture was soft, smooth, and blendable with a firmer feel, but it wasn't stiff or difficult to pick up with a brush. The eyeshadow melded well with my lid and looked very smooth, but shiny. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.
