Rose Dusk is a medium, rosy plum with strong, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The eyeshadow had rich color payoff in a single layer, which went on evenly and blended out easily along the edges. The consistency felt smooth to the touch, soft without being too densely-pressed into the pan, it was a bit less cream-like (but not in a positive or a negative way) than a shade like Love Lace. It stayed on well for nine hours before fading a bit.
The version in this palette seemed slightly cooler-toned on the top, but the base was just as warm toned, so applied and blended out in practice, I didn't notice any actual differences in color or undertone. The texture of the shade included in this palette seemed slightly more finely-milled and seemed to adhere even better.
