I was ideally hoping, i think, that this would be more of a paint replacement than it is. The shimmer is fantastic and it has very good coverage. However, i expected more opacity - it seems as though the individual "dots", as minute as they are, are more opaque but as a whole it is still rather sheer. I still love it, but am a wee bit disappointed. I thought perhaps i could retire my Making Memories Spotlight White, but alas, no.
