Armor is a muted, medium-dark grayish taupe with subtle, brown undertones and a pearly sheen. The eyeshadow had good color payoff with a soft, lightly dusty consistency that kicked up a bit of excess product in the pan but was easy enough to blend out on the lid without losing its intensity. I noticed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.
