Ginko is a warm light gray (for those of you used to graphic programs, it's a 15-20% black kind of gray), with a very faint lavender undertone. It has silvery glitter, and is fairly pigmented. I like using it as a wash over the eyelid, on top of Bobbi Brown Vanille; that makes it register more definitely as gray and not mud. ;-) I've admired the Alchemy eyeshadow display for quite a bit now, and this is my first purchase. I am infatuated with the copper packaging, but I do wish it came with a mirror.
