Throwing Shade is a rich, medium-dark brown with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was incredibly velvety and soft with just a touch of powderiness in the pan, but I didn't have any trouble applying it to bare skin as the eyeshadow blended out with ease and diffused well along the edges. It had opaque color coverage that lasted nicely for nine hours on me.
