Slate (27M) is a medium-dark purple with cooler undertones and a metallic finish. The texture was dense, smooth, and more firmly-pressed into the pan, but it wasn't stiff or difficult to pick up, just seemed to have a higher-level of binder that ensured fallout was kept to the minimum (or next to none!). The eyeshadow had opaque pigmentation that applied beautifully to bare skin and stayed on well for nine hours before fading visibly.
It was very similar in color but appeared a bit more shimmery/metallic and had better wear time with the current formula, while the texture felt denser but had similar ease in application.
