Scorched is muted, dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a looser, slightly dry texture that had larger sparkles in it and a touch of fallout during application. I could see this shade working best with a lightly dampened brush or patted on the lid with a fingertip as a result. On me, this eyeshadow stayed on for eight hours.
