This is a great, versatile shade. I apply it as eye shadow with a dry eye shadow brush, and I use it as eyeliner with a wet eyeliner brush. I really like this color. It’s not a flat color. It’s sort of like a dark opal jewel that has deep blues and greens and all these colors at once so that it’s very alive. With a light dry application, it’s very subtle, or you can build it up to a strong color. I have fair olive skin and hazel eyes, and I find the color very flattering. It wakes up my face without looking painted. Peacock is very pretty with Sterling Rose eye shadow.
