Substitute for Love is a medium-dark, orange-brown with a mostly matte finish and a dusting of what appears to be gold shimmer that really seems to be invisible whether swatched on the arm or applied to the eye. The texture was soft, silky, and blendable without being powdery on the skin. It wore well for eight hours on me. bareMinerals Fire (P, ) is more shimmery. MAC Saddle (P, $16.00) is darker, warmer.
