This eyeshadow has a very creamy texture and there is nothing dry or powdery about it. I have never tried another matte eyeshadow like it. The color itself is just a beige with a slightly yellow undertone and is not unique but it is wonderful for "oops" moments. If I happen to blend a darker color too high or too far out, I can simply apply this over and blend and it corrects my mistake without having to remove any makeup. Very opaque and long lasting. Makes a great base color to use under other shadows as I sometimes have redness or veins showing and this corrects it and other shadows layer smoothly over it. The color may not grab your attention but its versatility, texture, and staying power will.
