The new Iridescent formula was the second most different and more comparable to the Satin finish in terms of overall feel and performance, just with larger shimmer/micro-sparkle. The new formula has a denser consistency (almost “drier” and with less slip) and didn’t feel as cream-like, but the powder seemed to pickup better with most brushes and was more consistent in the actual finish–pearly with sparkle–whereas the original formula varied more heavily between pearly and metallic, sparkle and finer shimmer.
There were, however, more substantial color and undertone differences between old and new within this formula, like I saw with the Satin formula. Overall, I did not experience any significant issues applying most of the shades to the lid–they were semi-opaque to opaque, fairly buildable, blendable, and long-wearing (eight to ten hours).
