The texture of Rosewood is buttery smooth without any fall-outs or over-powdery. It's very easy to blend and layer. It stays fresh 10 hours with a standard primer, looking exactly the same as when first applied. Now, among all the six Burberry eyeshadows I own, Rosewood lies on the sheer side but in a good way. No matter how sheer I apply Rosewood on top a primer, it stays put.
