Plumage is a deep blue shade with a hint of glitter in the formula. This translates well onto the lid as it applies as it appears in the pan. Plumage and I have a love/hate relationship. I love this shade for its pigmentation, versatility, color but I absolutely despise it for its blendability factor. I have learned to use a light hand with Plumage and the phrase “a little goes a long way” comes to mind! This color does do wonders for blue eyes; the darker blue color contrasts well and makes blue eyes come alive. It has the same effect for green eyes as well. If you have the blending patience, I highly recommend Plumage. It is well worth the effort!
