Smoky Plum (23P) is a muted, medium-dark purple with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, while the consistency was slightly firmer, though smooth and yielding to the touch, and seemed a bit on the thinner side. The eyeshadow applied evenly to bare skin and blended out without difficulty. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.
The newer version seemed slightly cooler-toned and richer in appearance with a more metallic finish. The texture was less creamy, not as heavy compared to the original formula I have, but it still applied well and ended up having greater longevity.
