Additionally, I took my photo above before I used #6. It was poured or set with the swirls through it - not unusual for a cream product.
It's a good thing the color is beautiful. I took some swatch photos recently in full sun. I applied the cream cheek and lip color heavily with a cream concealer applicator, brushing it on without blending it at all.
I caved and purchased one of the palettes. I know I said I wouldn't, but I had little Claudio Riaz boxes everywhere. I'd prefer a better system. At $38, it's not inexpensive. Wouldn't you expect a compact?
You can find Claudio Riaz color at Barneys New York and Claudio Riaz online.
