The shimmer is definitely muted, on dry application; and is even a bit softer on wet application than it appears in the pot. Compared to Aladdin’s Lamp, which displays a warm red-silver-gold shimmer even applied dry, this color’s performance is almost sedate. It’s nice, though, to have a straight mica that acts a little bit more like a traditional eyeshadow-with-pigment-and-base. (And this is marketed as a mica, with some titanium dioxide but not much. It needs a base of some kind to adhere to your skin, even with wet or damp application.) I haven’t tried using this to contour, though with its slightly deeper brown base I’d imagine it would look fairly attractive on the inner vee, or the outer lid. It might not work quite so well in the crease, unless you were looking specifically for a softer brown that wasn’t “au naturel” shadowing. Just…remember the base. This does appear to have a bit of a base, but it is mica, so migration and fading are a distinct possibility if you just apply it the same way you apply regular shadows.
