An attractive shade…that doesn’t apply too well, unfortunately. I had the best results applying it dry, patting it over primer…but the usual soft sweep-across that I do to get rid of any excess showed me some thinner spots.

This color applies well, though a sealant wouldn’t be a bad idea if you want to maxinize and keep the shimmer.
