Current is a brighter, light-medium emerald green with cool undertones and a soft sheen. It was incredibly dense and firmly packed into the pan, which made it difficult to pick up with a brush. A warmer fingertip picked up product more readily but proved challenging in transferring product from fingertip to lid.
I had the some luck taking a flat, firmer brush and jabbing and pushing at the pan's surface and then patting into place onto the lid. Unfortunately, this worked for getting "pigmentation" out of the product but made it hard to place and blend it out evenly. As I applied it, there was some fallout and the end result was more muted. When I used a dense, larger pencil brush to pack it onto my lower lash line, I saw maximum payoff, but I definitely noticed the pan softened slightly after repeated jabbing/uses.
The color showed signs of fading after seven hours of wear. Worth noting: the thicker consistency made it hard to layer with other shades in the palette, and I would recommend working with shimmers first and layering mattes over them or else this shade will push and erase other shades (it did that with Chaos and Fluorescent for me).
