I love this eye shadow! A lovely warm brown-bronze. I am in awe of UD eyeshadows; they blend so smoothly. I use Too Faced Shadow Insurance, and they last all day. I picked this when deciding between it and YBF, but I might go back and get that one too! I like that this shadow isn't glittery like other UD shadows, its more shimmery.
This shadow should have more reviews. It's great! I bought this after another MUA indicated it's similar to the lighter color in Nars Kalahari (which I also love). That's true, they have some very similar qualities. I would say Toasted is a bit more bronzey and definitely more pigmented. It's a complicated color to explain. It looks a bit orangey in the pan (in my opinion, anyway) and I was worried it might have too many orange or red tones. But when applied, it's just a beautiful subtle bronze brown color, perfect for everyday wear (or can be made more striking with dark liner for night time). Toasted is very smooth in texture, reminds me of MAC Satin Taupe in that aspect (FYI the Kalahari shade got slightly gritty and not as smooth after some use). It's shimmery but NOT glittery (many UD shadows are, and I am personally not a fan of the chunky glitter). I'm really happy with this purchase. I think it's one of UD's best shades and very under-appreciated!
I bought Toasted and Midnight Cowboy on my last trip to Sephora. I thought Midnight Cowboy was going to be my favorite, but I was wrong--Toased is.
It's a beautiful coppery, but not orangey brown, goes on very nicely, looks great on me and I LOVE the way these shadows wear! No creasing, even at the end of the day.
I use toasted when I want to have a more natural look.
I am surprised this only has 2 reviews! It's a beautiful dark brown/coppery shadow with no glitter, just shimmer. I originally picked it up because I love dark brown shadows - they make my dark brown eyes pop, and contrast nicely against my fair skin. But, a lot of dark browns are too much to wear during the day, I find, because of my light skin - it looks too heavy. Toasted is definitley a dark brown that is wearable during the day. I love to use it on the whole lid, but it is also is a great crease color. Lasts very long and has great pigment, like all UD shadows. Will repurchase if I ever run out!
Toasted is a heavy metal looking shade, a beautiful bronzy copper to my eyes. It makes blue or green eyes pop and layers well over Sellout or sin. It also works well with Smog or Mildew. It's not nearly as orange as Chopper and contains no glitter. It's not as rich as Smog and seems to be a bit more taupy brownish in it's intensity. It's a wonderful shade as a neutral with that little metallic shimmer kick to it.
I'm stunned Toasted shadow has no reviews yet!
This coppery brown shadow was a Spring 07 release and it's quickly become one of my fave UD shadows. It's a shimmery, non-glittery brown with warm coppery-golden tones. Lighter and less bronzey than Smog, darker and more brown than Chopper, much warmer and less shimmery than YDK. Typical excellent UD texture, blendability and staying power.
I love it in the crease with Blunt or Sin as lid/highlighter for a neutral daytime look. Can be used as a wash with darker crease/liner for more drama. Pops with a teal or khaki green liner.
