MY VIEWS: The texture of the eyeshadow is soft and smooth.It is nicely pigmented.Instead of swiping the shade twice,I pat the shadow with brush to get maximum color impact as the shimmer come out more vibrantly. It is easily blendable.
  
Staying power is around 7-8 hours with a base underneath.
  
It has minimal fallout.The shade is great for special occasion as it creates stunning looks.It is an amazing shade for highlighting inner corners of the eyes as well.Itblends easily with other shades and doesn’t look streaky even if applied wet.
  
Here,in this look I have used 03 as a lid colour!
Also,it can be used wet and dry so the pigmentation increases to a certain extent when applied wet!!
RATING: 5/5
RECOMMENDATION: Definitely a highly recommended shade!!I love the intensity of the shade and the way it can be added in many looks.
