I am reviewing the colour of the OLD palette (transparent cap, no mirror). I do not think it is available in the new palette (black opaque case with mirror). No 11-Burgundy is now a similar but not the same colour. See my previous reviews for general differences in the palettes.
This is one of my first Sisley e/s. I may have it for 10 years now... It is still buttery soft, silky to the touch and gorgeous in payoff as the day I bought it. That's how good the old palette was! It was a little too dark on my complexion so I did not use it that much, that's why it still survives. And to all the hygiene-freaks out there, if I die or go blind from the old eye shadow, I'll have someone come and take back these words.
Its a deep, rich, dark colour that does not remind me of Amethyst at all. When you hear "Amethyst" you expect something purple/cool. This is more red/burgundy.
The colour is matte, opaque and very buildable. I do not load my brushes because I prefer to build the intensity and this e/s can really help you build the intensity you want.
I use it either in the whole lid with my MAC 239 or in the crease with my MAC 224 (office appropriate) or BB eye contour (more intense crease).
I did not experience dust fallout and it is a very good thing, given that it is a dark colour.
It lasts extremely well on my eyes, with minimum creasing after 8-10 work hours. I prime my eyes first with concealer and a light dusting of loose powder.
Even if I could find it again, I would not repurchase because Sisley is ridiculously overpriced. Now that I have come to my senses after my Sisley craze I am not dishing out 32+ Euro per e/s even for the quantity I get (0.05oz - 1.5g). I am sure I can find something else with more or less the same performance for a better price

I always like Sisley eye shadow. It goes on so nicely and stay on well.
Not too many colors however.
