I really like this eyeshadow, it looks so great on and it's a great shadow to use for a "dramatic natural" look. I use it a lot in my everyday make-up's and yeah, I love it! :)

I like Handwritten, it's a good matt crease colour but i personally always seem to opt for Embark more than Handwritten, But i do like to use Handwritten in the crease, blend it out to give the crease warmth then darken the crease with Embark for a gorgeous smokey eye. <3

I love the matte2 formula, but this color pulled too red on my skintone. It does blend well and has good pigmentation and nor chalky at all. I wish mac would make more eyeshadows in this nice finish. Wish the color had worked out better. For reference: nc 35 latina dark brown eyes and dark brownish blackish hair.

Gorgeous brown!
This is a very pigmented, dark matte brown.
It's super blendable and creamy, it's really fab for the crease, the outer V or as a liner!
It doesn't crease and it lasts all day!

I love this eyeshadow. I find it so beautiful. I love how the colour is so natural but yet bold at the same time.

A very pigmented colour. I originally purchased this to use on my brows, but it is very versatile. Although (apart from the high pigmentation) it does seem like the colour is very dupable.

Handwritten is a rich chocolate brown, it doesn't come out reddish on my like some other reviews state. I'm an NC25 to NC30/35 in the summer. I love the Matte effect very dramatic but toned down since it is neutral. It is earthy and kinda flat but that's perfect for me since I wanted a shades for Autumn. I purchased this in a 4 set with Bamboo, Blanc Type and Scene a muted grey blue. I use Handwritten in my crease, blend blend blend and then a little bit of Scene in the outer V. All together these shades work well for a classic fall look. I haven't had a chance to use it with other colours but I can see it being versitle since it is a neutral brown. I wouldn't say its a must have but if you are well on your way to owning over half of the MAC makeup line you should try this colour out.

My thoughts on Handwritten are similar to those of Typographic. Ridiculously pigmented and very versatile. Handwritten is a rich, red brown that works well as a liner, crease color, and outer v definer. Again, like Typographic, because it is so pigmented, I have hardly made a dent in the year or so I've had this...and I use it at least 4 times a week. It's the perfect outer v color for a bronze-y brown eye. Will repurchase if I ever need to.

Much like copperplate, also a matte2 formula, handwritten is a MAC shadow you might easily overlook. It won't jump out at you like its shimmery counterparts twinks or mulch, but please do yourself a favor and pick this shadow up. Ever since purchasing it a couple weeks ago, it's found it's way into my "everyday, no-fail" arsenal, alongside shroom, patina, and the aforementioned copperplate--where very few shadows reside. It makes an outstanding crease shade for a brown smokey eye, but my favorite way to use it is with an angle brush as a liner on my lower line, and smudged above the inky black liner I use on my upper lids. The texture and pigmentation are absolute perfection, and the color is equally divine--not too red, and does not oxidize on my NW20 skintone.

Handwritten succeeds in every arena where I have found embark lacking, and I would buy it again in a heartbeat.

I love this eyeshadow so much. I have fair skin (NW15) and love using it in the crease for a "dramatic neutral" look. It also looks amazing along my lower lash line as eyeliner. The texture is so silky smooth!
