I can't quite recall…I think this color may have been available for individual purchase when I started buying BE. It's been “in the vault” for a long time now, though. Lighter purple with a satin finish, decent payoff but not spectacular. The color falls in between Princess and Joeli.

I picked up this shadow because it looked like it might be duochrome. It isn't. (Hard lesson learned, kids: without swatches, don't trust any eyeshadow vendor that calls their product “duochrome,” and even with swatches, be leery.) It's an interesting-enough blue. The texture reminds me of MAC's Crushed Metal shadows, which are likewise pretty but don't apply easily or evenly.
