I had assumed that I would use this as a lid colour but in fact I get more use from it as a crease colour and also to soften the edges of a smoky eye. Today, I am wearing it in the crease with MAC Brule as an all over base colour with a bit of the pearlised champagne-pink from Rue de Rivoli as a brow highlight. Some would say it's a boring look, I'd say subtle. Po-tay-to, po-tah-to!
To put the colour into context, I thought it would be useful to compare it to a couple *cough, cough* of similar eyeshadows from my collection. Below, you can see how it compares to similar shades in the Guerlain Rue de Rivoli, Rue de Passy and BECCA Enigma palettes, as well as old favourites RBR Solstice Halcyon and MAC Omega. None of them are precisely identical but, based on the pan, I would say that Armure from the Enigma palette is pretty close.

BECCA Armure is still closest based on the swatches, however the texture of the RBR eyeshadow is definitely superior. As a random aside, I do like to see the colours compared side by side like this as it's interesting to see the different undertones. It also makes me even more keen to have a colour analysis to see which of these colours, if any, would fit with my recommended colour palette.
