Nina's Orchid (82V) is a light-medium purple with warmer, pink undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, while the texture was soft, lightly powdery in the pan but adhered evenly and wasn't prone to sheering out too readily, though it was fairly blendable along the edges. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading visibly on me.
The performance was substantially improved; the newer formula is a lot less powdery, which gave it better adhesion and application, so it actually yielded near opaque coverage rather than sheering out immediately.

A highly pigmented “matte finish” eyeshadow, this product will provide excellent coverage, with high definition for a great long lasting effect, that won't fade away.
