Astral Rose Orchid is a brighter, warmer pink with a sparkling, pink-to-gold shifting duochrome finish. I found that it looked like a light-medium pink less than half of the time; most of the time, it was lighter, brighter, and more of peachy-gold with flecks of pink.
The texture was fairly smooth, but I could feel (by touch) how much sparkle was packed into the formula, but I was impressed by how well the sparkles and powder came together as it had minimal fallout during application--even with a dry brush--and how there didn't seem to be additional fallout during blending, though there was some dispersion (more so than intended).
It had good pigmentation applied dry as well as with a dampened brush; I didn't find that the dampened brush improved the underlying base color come through much but it helped with laying down a smoother, shinier layer of product overall. On me, the eyeshadow stayed on well for over 10 hours with very minimal fallout over time.
