This was my first MAC eyeshadow and I daresay that I absolutely love it...
It makes my brown eyes pop and I totally recommend it for everyday!! It matches with my skin tone and its satin finish make my eyes awake and fresh.. :)
Due to its adequate coverage, every blemish around my eyes is vanished..
Definitely would buy it again

Great everyday and versatile eyeshadow! It's a shade of ivory/soft beige with slight peach undertones that matches my skin tone. It's a satin finish as per MAC, but appears more matte in appearance. Looks boring in the pan, but I find lots of uses for it from using it under the brow, all over wash of colour to assist with blending shadows, and even a lid shadow. I actually prefer this colour to MAC's Vanilla as I find Orb to be more pigmented, opaque, and easier to blend.

Really nice matte high liter color but I don't use highlighters so it was a waste really.

I love this eyeshadow. The MA at mac used this as an all over lid color and paired it with haux in the crease and typograpic in the outer v, it created a very sophisticated daytime look that could easily be played up for night time. I love that this color is matte so its not an obvious sparkly highlighter but its beautiful in its matte simplicity. Its a kind of flesh toned color with a subtle pink undertone. Another one of my favorite looks is orb all over haux 2/3 of the eye and embark on the outer v and lashline.

A MAC artist recommended Orb as a highlight for bronze-smokey eyes. I already have Shroom, Ricepaper, Vanilla, Brule and Vapour, but all seem a bit too cool toned. So I gave Orb a try and I really like it. It's a bit warmer and blends really well into the other colors as a highlight. I also like that it's matte.
EDIT: loving this as a wash with black winged eyeliner and red lips OR just all over the eye area from lid to brow to even out the area when I don't wear any other eye makeup!

I have been a makeup addict since I was 16. I have been collecting MAC shadows for about that long as well.

Orb is the only color that I have ever hit pan on. That should tell you something.

I am somewhat pale, but do not have a color in MAC foundations because I find them to be too full of yellow pigment. This color provides a clean matte canvas for my eye makeup. It's not too light or too dark, and if MAC ever discontinued it, I would probably cry.

Such an amazingly versatile shade! I bought this per recommendation and thought, "Why did I buy this?" because it is very similar to my skintone, although slightly pinker. The more I experimented with it, however, the more I fell in love! The slight pink tone brightens up my eyes when I apply it all over my lid and works great as a matte highlight on more natural days. It blends amazingly and it very pigmented. I use it for everything. It's a very useful shade to own.

ORB is the perfect MEOB (my eyelid only better - much better) color. I love the matte consistency. It brightens up other colors put over it. I can use it under my eye (almost like a finishing powder). It is great to cover the weird greenish casts in my tear duct area. Only thing is - I use it up so quickly. I just have a hard time spending that much money on what is really just a utilitarian color. I guess I think $11 should buy me something more glamorous and singular - like CLUB!! If I could find a spot-on dupe for this perfect (for me) color - i would run right out and buy a lottery ticket because it is a lucky day lol!

NW20 - this doesn't really show up on my skin tone, so I'm going to exchange it for something lighter to use on the brow bone.

I love Orb! This is one of my staple eyeshadows, and if MAC ever discontinued it I would be devestated! I use Orb over Bare Study paint pot as a base. I use it as an all over wash of colour to the lid, and it really helps to create a canvas to work on. The colour compliments my NC15 skin great, and it can also be used as a highlighter. The finish is quite matte, with minimal shimmer or glitter so it appears very natural. It makes eyes appear more awake and works with many looks. The colour is a peachy cream colour, which is beautiful. I love this eyeshadow!
