Dust is described as a "pale metallic pink shimmer with iridescent micro-glitter." It's a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a white and gold micro-glitter. The texture is a little powdery and glittery, so it feels looser; it's a shade I would apply with a dampened brush to minimize fall out and to help it apply more smoothly. I had noticeable fall out with this shade. Sleek MakeUP Sunset #12 (P, $9.99) is darker. Chanel Pink Lagoon (LE, $34.00) is warmer, cream product. Urban Decay Scratch (P, $18.00) is darker. MAC Rose Light (LE, $32.50) is more metallic. bareMinerals Page Six (P) is less glittery. See comparison swatches.
