Photosynthesex #2 is a faded, mid-tone teal with a warmer, plummy brown base that shifted from bluish-teal to greenish-teal at certain angles. It had a more glittery finish, which gave it a more emollient consistency and denser feel to it. I was happy to see that it had actually yielded opaque pigmentation both wet and dry, so I didn't feel like it had to be used wet to achieve decent application/coverage. When I diffused and blended it out, the blue-teal sparkles tended to diffuse without as much color, which gave an almost glitter-like top coat effect. It lasted for eight hours but had some fallout over time.
