I was unsure about this at first but it goes really well with wedge (another Mac eyeshadow).

Years ago on Youtube people would talk about Cork as a nice crease shade but the one I purchased from Mac is very difficult to blend. It is hard to come out the pan and I use my tweezers to scrape the top of the eyeshadow to loosen it up first before I can apply. Almost all Mac matte or 'matte looking' shades are difficult to blend in my opinion....Wedge, Embark, Sketch, Fig 1, Espresso have the same problem. I mostly use Cork all over the lid and blended up in the crease for soft everyday smokey eyes. It truly is a nice shade however if I find a similar shade in another brand I won't be repurchasing.

On me, this is a medium golden brown. It's a good staple and a workhorse. Works great as a crease color in so many looks. Lovely satin finish (almost matte) but not dry or flat. Can be built up or applied lightly. On me, it's darker and more golden than Wedge, though similar. It's very versatile as I can also use it as a liner or brow powder (though a bit too warm to consider my go-to brow powder).

LOVE LOVE LOVE this color! So versatile. I use it for contouring on my jawline, cheeks, and eyes. Also great for helping to shape my eyebrows, leaving them looking natural since it's a powder.

I do use this as a cooler-toned crease color for a neutral eye, but Cork gets far more use as a brow powder. I use this daily for the outer half of my brows (with M•A•C Omega on the inner half) and have received several compliments on them over the years. I apply with an angled brush. Pros: * amazing brow color for darker blonde brows* smooth application* blendable on brows* very long-lasting* generous amount of product* fits well in many palettes (I purchased the standalone pan)Cons: * a bit dry; can be harder to blend as a crease color

The eyeshadow itself is great, it's creamy and pigmented. However, it turned orange on my eyes and that isn't a look I'd want on an everyday basis. $16 for an eyeshadow I won't wear is too much for me to not take it back. I would recommend this to some darker skinned warm toned people, my lighter skin just made it pull a weird color.

Good basic staple eyeshadow tang everyone should own! I use it as a crease color for an everyday natural look, also works good for eyebrows. I just hit pan recently and will repurchase.

I love this shadow as a brow color, crease color or transition/blending color. It works great on my nc40 skin, is nicely pigmented and textured, no fall out and blends well. plus i love all mac packaging, sleek and classic.

I owned this shadow for quite some time and used it infrequently but it really has grown on me. Initially I was a tad underwhelmed. My perception was that it was an ok, matte ( took me years to realise it was satin!), neutral, mid brown shadow. My verdict would have been "Alright but boring". But by now it is the shadow I reach for most often when I need to dash but want to look groomed, understated and polished. Pairs very well with virtually any other lighter or darker brown. I can't see any hints of red/orange when I wear it although it looks quite warm toned in the pan. It's a fuss free everyday, goes with anything kind of colour. I've lent it to my nieces who have blue eyes and brown eyes and it looked fab on both ( they both loved it and instantly put it on their birthday wish list).I deducted a lippie because, compared to many other MAC shadows, I find it is a relatively "loose pressed" powdery shadow, meaning you get a fair amount of fallout from the brush when applying it. And unless you use a primer, I find it creases more and quicker than some other shadows. All the same it is a VERY versatile, beautiful colour.

I am Korean and medium skin tone--I use Dior Skin in 040 Honey Beige or LM Tinted Moisturizer in Sand or Beige in BB foundation or Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Stick Bisque.Cork is a true medium brown that I thought I could use as a transition color but it is a bit too dark; UD Naked single eyeshadow is a lighter and more versatile true brown.My typical eye is UD Sin OR Toasted, Roach, Busted, Zephyr (hihglight) with Naked as the transition color.
