Rare Beauty Nearly Mauve is a moderately warm-toned, dark coral with a semi-matte finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $20.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
Rare Beauty Nearly Mauve Stay Vulnerable Liquid Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium-dark coral with moderate, warm undertones and barely-there gold pearl strewn through a more matte finish. The shimmer was very subtle in person, so those who aren't into shimmer probably wouldn't have an issue with it here (it's just that subtle!).
The texture was lightweight, airy, and like a whipped mousse, which made it easy to apply and spread over the skin, though it was naturally inclined to sheer out as well so getting opaque results takes more building in theory (or else not blending at all). The formula is designed to be sheerer and buildable, so it performed in line with how it was marketed.
For me, the downside was that, despite being marketed as buildable, I found longevity worsened at more than medium coverage; it was quick to crease within four to five hours at higher levels of coverage but lasted for seven hours before creasing as a sheer wash of product--though not that long-wearing either way. I was surprised since the formula dried down pretty quickly--work one eye at a time!--and seemed fairly budge/transfer-resistant by touch alone.

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.
