Natasha Denona Dragonfly is a moderately warm-toned, medium-dark duochrome with a metallic finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $28.00 and contains 0.08 oz.
Natasha Denona Dragonfly Chromium Liquid Eyeshadow ($28.00 for 0.08 oz.) had a lighter, less blackened base that shifted from bright, warm gold to copper to red to fuchsia paired with a metallic finish. The shift was very visible at a multitude of angles and lighting situations--definitely an intense shift that did not require being a professional contortionist to see!
The formula was lightweight, watery but smooth and spreadable without being prone to sheering out. It had opaque color coverage applied with the included, doe-foot applicator as well as when applied with a flat, synthetic brush. For sheerer coverage, I'd recommend a fluffy, synthetic brush with swirling motions or dabbing it onto the center of the lid with a fingertip and diffusing the edges gently. I found that fingertip applicator required me to work faster than when I used a brush as the formula dried down faster and when it was semi-set, it was more prone to lifting and turning patchy.
I experienced a bit of stinging on my lid as the formula dried down, which went away once the formula fully set. Over a nine-hour wear time, I didn't experience fading, creasing, or flaking from the product, but there was slight cracking--because it was still totally dry, which is why I'd describe it as cracking over creasing!--along the two of the fine lines on my inner lid after four hours (though only noticeable when I looked very closely) and a slight cracking was apparent after six hours. When I wore this shade on my inner tearduct, there weren't any fine lines for it to crack along, and so the wear was much improved.
