Rare Beauty Nearly Apricot Stay Vulnerable Liquid Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a brighter, medium orange with subtle, warmer reddish undertones and a semi-matte finish. There was barely-there gold pearl, which was quite fine, strewn throughout that came through more noticeably when sheered out.
The texture was airy, more like a whipped mousse, and had buildable coverage from more semi-sheer to medium, and it was easy to sheer out as more of a wash of color if preferred. The formula was quick to dry down, and it did turn to a more powder-like, transfer-resistant finish quickly, so I'd recommend using a brush to really blow out the color along the edges or to work rapidly one eye at a time if using fingertips. I found that it lasted better at sheerer coverage, though (closer to eight hours), as I had visible creasing when wearing it at higher opacity after six hours of wear.

This quick and easy formula goes from liquid to powder in seconds. Velvety-smooth, creamy, and never sticky, it blends and builds easily before setting to a soft, satin finish that lasts all day—no creasing, smudging, fading, transferring, or drying out your skin.
