Fort de France is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a luminous sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a smooth, almost cream-like texture that was firmer in the pan but applied beautifully with a brush to cheeks and the high points of the face. (The initial firmness of the texture worried me by touch alone!) This shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me.
P.S. -- My press sample arrived broken in pieces, but the texture was mostly intact in the larger pieces and still felt consistent with the full-sized version I have.
