This is a cool, gold color. For a gel liner/shadow with 'SMOOTHERS' in it's title, I expected it to glide a lot easier than it did. It was a bit jumpy/skippy in application at first. Now I dip it in water before applying and it glides right along! It's not glittery, just an even wash of light gold color accented w/ minimal 'pixie dust'. I use it to line my inner eyelids (for a bright pop of color) and finish lining my outer lids w/ a rich black line. It serves a perfect base for a dramatic 'cat-eye' look.
