Latte is a matte eye shadow that is described as a beige. It makes an alright base color for looks but I don't use it much. I personally like mac orb or brulee much better due to color, pigmentation, and finish (orb and brulee are satins not matte). Latte doesn't have as much warmth to it as orb and is similar to mac brulee or even mac vanilla once it is on my eye lids. The reason I wouldn't repurchase other than the fact I like other colors better is because Lancôme eye shadows don't last as long as my mac shadows. The pigmentation is a little too light as well. Overall I will pass on this next time.
