Chaos is a medium-dark, cobalt blue with strong, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had medium to semi-opaque coverage in a single layer, but it was very powdery and prone to sheering out (you could almost blow away product it was that dry and powdery on my skin). The only way to make this work in any capacity was to apply it over another shade (like a shimmer) or over a white, slightly tacky base. It had a ton of fallout during application, erased away from my skin as I tried to blend it out, and what little I managed to keep on my lid had faded visibly after five hours of wear.
In the blue/green look above, I had originally used Chaos in the deep crease and crease area, but it would not stay as I blended it out--it just disappeared and left bare skin behind. I ended up taking Current and trying to apply it more into the crease so I could layer Chaos on top, which grabbed some of the product but still left a line of bare skin between Chaos/Current and Fluorescent. Unfortunately, even with primer and trying to cheat it with giving it something extra to grip, it was still a failure.
It was a massive downgrade in performance from my past experiences with the shade in adhesion, blendability, and wear.
