Tarte Top Yacht Chrome Paint Shadow Pot ($22.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a bright, light gold with strong, warm undertones and a very shiny, metallic finish. The texture seemed to be chunkier, which made it harder to apply initially. This shade in particular benefited greatly from being applied with fingertips (the warmth seemed to help a lot, as the brand said it would) or with a dampened brush. With gentle pressing and short blending strokes, I was able to apply it evenly with a dry brush--it'll just take a little longer to do so. Applied with a fingertip, I was able to get more semi-opaque coverage and build up from there. The finish seemed chunky initially, but it definitely "melted" and looked smoother after a few minutes. It lasted well for eight and a half hours before creasing a bit.
