It's supposed to be a long-wearing, cream-powder hybrid that "applies like a sheer cream and sets" so it "won't fade, smudge, or settle into creases." The brand is silent on coverage but Sephora listed it as buildable from "sheer to semi-sheer," while Beautylish lists to "tap onto skin with your finger for intense payoff" and "a brush for a more subtle effect." The latter was what I read prior to testing, which I found mostly true--the color payoff was semi-sheer and buildable, often to full coverage if applied with fingertips or layered with a brush. I had trouble building up Lavender/Gold and Silver, as it was chunkier overall. The wear was eight to nine hours without creasing and slight fallout over time. I wish the texture was creamier, though, as I felt like they could have been easier and more forgiving to use if they were.

Add a shimmering, shifting sheen to eyes, lips, and skin with this iridescent topcoat. Inspired by Natasha Denona’s duochrome eye shadows, Duo Chrome Top Coat applies like a sheer cream and sets to a multidimensional, glass-like finish that won’t fade, smudge, or settle into creases.
