Beautiful pale shimmry peachy color. Looks good under browbone with Trax on lid & Sketch on outer corner.
Arena looks like nasty dusty, muted peach in the pot, and even on my hand, so it certainly didnt leap out and scream "buy me!" at the counter. But after several recommendations i bought it anyways, and im really glad i did. its VERY wearable, and while its neutral, its not boring and blah. it really makes blue or green eyes pop. This is a definite staple.
Arena is my new favorite e/s! I am LLL with blue eyes. The peachy, golden color makes me look refreshed. I wore it the other day with goldmine in the crease & teddy liner and got tons of compliments. Someone told me they thought I was 18 (I'm 26)!!!!
Lovely neutral that looks great on its own or paired with Motif with Trax in the crease (suggested by MAC artiste). It's a definite shade of apricot, pretty and not overpowering, but can still be built to whatever intensity you prefer without looking garish.
The MAC sales assistant at my local Nordstrom recommended this to go with my blue eyes and NW20 skin. It's a shimmery apricot color (not orange) that looks nice and bright on its own, or worn with other colors. I use it as a base color on my lid and in the crease, and then put a dusting of Amber Lights (a light gold/bronze) in the outer crease, and Shroom just under my eyebrow. Voila! Perfect summer look. I think this would look pretty with just about any eye color and warm skin tone.
With summer coming around and my recent neutral phase, I love this eyeshadow. Not boring tan, but a gorgeous peachy shade with some beige undertones. If you layer it a bit for intensity, turns into a peachy-(light) bronze on my lids. Fantastic for summer for a more natural look (but taken up a notch!)

My new favorite neutral. Arena is a soft pinked peach with shimmer. Reminds me of MAC's Naked Lunch shadow, but less pink. Looks fantastic on light eyes (mine are bluish green). Also pairs wonderfully with plum, bronze, greens and browns. An all around winner! I don't know why it took so long for me to find it.....
Oh this color is so pretty on blue grey eyes. I have gotten many compliments on this color. It isn't overpowering or too shimmery. Just right.
I love, love this color. It is the best neutral, lovely peachy/beige shade for all over my lids. Super versatile (I can wear this with just about any of my other eyeshadows). It is a must have IMHO.
On me, Arena shows up as a golden peachy color (I'm an NC35). The texture is very smooth and has good staying power. I love pairing it with Mulch in the crease and Ricepaper to highlight. I will definitely repurchase this when I run out.
