Sterling is a bright silver with subtle, cool undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The eyeshadow was very nearly opaque in one layer, while the texture was soft, smooth, and lightly creamy but not quite as finely-milled and superb as some of the other shades in the palette. The eyeshadow applied well to bare skin, and I didn't have any issues diffusing the edges. It wore well for almost 10 hours before I noticed a bit of fading.
