Emerald Isles (Cream Color) is a deep, smoky green with warm, olive undertones and a pearly sheen. The consistency was smooth, creamy without being too slippery, and easy to blend out on the lid. It had rich color payoff that could be applied evenly in a single layer to be worn alone or buffed out as a base underneath other powder eyeshadows. It dried down fast enough to avoid getting into my fine lines and creases but didn't feel like I had to work at warp speed. The eyeshadow showed no signs of fading or creasing after 10 hours of wear.
