Touch in Sol Aurora Taupe (7) Metallist Sparkling Foiled Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark taupe with subtle, warm undertones and multi-colored sparkle and micro-glitter paired with a shiny, metallic finish. The flecks of glitter and sparkle were flatter, which gave them a stronger sheen and a shinier finish overall.
Applied with fingertips, it had more medium to semi-opaque color coverage and light fallout during application, whereas a synthetic brush (dry!) yielded almost opaque coverage and a fleck or two of fallout (when patted/pressed into place). While it didn't have the pigmentation as marketed, I suspect those who like one-and-done glittery shades will still enjoy it.
I was able to gently diffuse and blend out the edges without the product falling off my skin, though some of the sparkles spread out on my lid area (a bit further than intended). It wore well for nine hours without creasing and had slight fallout over time.
