Empowered is a medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. That being said, it was listed as a "sheer matte" that could be used as a "wash of color" dry or "wet as an eyeliner." It did appear softer and more faded in color dry but the coverage was much greater than sheer. When I tried to use it with a dampened brush, it worked well for eyeliner purposes but became difficult to smudge/blend out so I'd recommend only using it with a dampened brush for lining but using a dry brush for any other uses. It lasted for just over eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.
