This isn’t totally opaque…sort of. The finishing shimmer has a few spots of lesser coverage, but the base color is

This is definitely a colorant. It works halfway-decent when applied wet, but just looks lousy when I try to apply it over primer. I’ve seen this used in nail polishes, and it’s a deep evergreen that looks lovely. But it definitely should not be used on its own as an eyeshadow. (It’s also an intense colorant, so it does stain more than a bit.)

CND’s Vinylux Unlocked (268)

This is my absolute favorite from the Nude collection. It’s defnitely cooler, almost more of a nearly-neutral purple than a brown. It reminds me of Field Fox, another surprising neutral polish from CND. This color sold out of a lot of online outlets fairly quickly, and it took a month or two until stock was available again. It evens out very nicely, and provides a slight “brightening” without being a white or off-white shade.

Two highlighters and six blushes that actually do a fairly good job covering the spectrum. Litha is a deep, highly-pigmented red that will actually show up on deeper skintones, while Ostara and Mabon are softer pinks (slightly cool and slightly warm, respectively.) There are pale almost-highlighters (more pigmentation than shimmer), and a warmer peach and a cooler apricot blush. I already have so many blushes, but some of these are calling my name!

The rich purple-brown base color gets softened a bit when applied. The pearl finish isn’t as reflective as other pearl-finish shadows I have, but it does cover the color in a smooth white-ish layer. I can and have used this as a softer eye liner, but I think it might only be an effective liner on fair and lighter skintones, and neutral and cool undertones. The color payoff is very rich and even, and application is smooth.

This one isn’t as metallic as the other Color Chromes…but I’m okay with that. The color payoff is great! It blends decently, though it does stain if you apply it without some kind of base.

I thought this would be a little cooler than it turned out to be. It looks cool in some lights, warm in others. It’s a shade just barely within my personal comfort zone, and the coverage is about on par with the other Lux Lipsticks.
