LOVE THIS!! this is a slightly shimmery (frosty) light green- like seaform or, well, the inside of a cucumber!! It goes on, for me, with a slight cooling effect. I used this after applying a base and it stayed on all through school (7 hrs). It is hard to sharpen, not from size, but because if you sharpen it too much it will crack and fall off. Lots of people are saying it doesnt fit in their sharpeners GUYS GET A MARY KAY SHARPENER!! yeah they don't have your fav makeup but they have one sharpener with two holes in it one for a regular pencil and the other fits this. Overall I would totally buy this again. I ordered nine others so look for reviews on them!!
