Mandarin Muse is a bright, medium orange with warm, red undertones and a mostly matte finish. This one seemed to reflect more light than a true matte would. It had mostly opaque pigmentation, which applied fairly well, though there were a couple of streaky areas that didn't disappear or self-level when it dried down. On me, it wore well for six hours.
