A great neutral medium brown. The texture is smooth, doesn't crease with a good primer applied underneath, and it is sheer, but buildable.

My new HG brown shadow! I'm a NC20-25 foundation. I use Sally Hansen eye base then this color. I have hazel eyes and wear this with Cream. Makes the green pop. It also goes on silky smooth, somewhat sheer. I wear contacts and it didn't bother my eyes at all. Love it. Well worth the money.

This is a medium golden brown shadow. I find it too light to use as a liner and too yellow to use as a lid or crease shade on my cool-toned skin. I will not repurchase.

I have had this eyeshadow for a while, but never appreciated its true beauty until today. Hazelnut is the perfect, matte, medium-golden brown eyeshadow for me. I originally bought this for eyelining, but today I used this in the crease with MAC Your Ladyship pigment, and this looked fantastic. Lasted all day, too, with no creasing. I also had no trouble blending this $8.95 eyeshadow on my lids. Better pigmented and outperformed some other, more expensive, brands of eyeshadows that I own. Highly recommended.

I bought this product whilst it was on a sale. $10.30 here in Australia.

I prefer single colour eyeshadows as l always find a couple of colours l don't like or don't suit me in the trio's or quads.

I was a bit worried because l have read negative comments about Paula's eyeshadows. I love the colour, the pigment was good, didn't flake and lasted for hours.

Would repurchase this product again, and am putting in an order for more colours.

This is quite an unusual colour, being soft olive brown with a touch of yellow.
Sounds awful but is very subtle on the eye and works well as a crease shadow and also as a soft liner.

I have green eyes and this is sufficiently slightly off key in tone to really emphasise my eyes well.

Highly recommended

This is the perfect eye liner shade for me, out of all of her browns I've tried. (I do like her Graphite for a black liner for evenings, too) but this also is a great crease color for me as well. Great double duty product!
