This is my daily go to eyeshadow. It is completely underrated. It makes a great base color and brightens up my eyes. If I'm in a rush for work or class I can make this color work on its own. I must say that it beats out Naked Lunch for an all over lid color (I use NL as a highlight color alongside Grain). (NC40 for reference)
I reach for this almost everyday...got it in a swap and I am so thankful because I don't think I would have even considered it in the store. It is just slightly darker than my natural skintone so I often wear it as a wash with Blanc Type on the brow. I'm a brown-eyed girl, but I bet this would look amazing on BLUE eyes. It is a beige/ecru color with the slightest peachy brown undertones.
This might sound weird, but I've been looking for an E/S that was the exact color of my eyelid. I'm a MAC NC25/30 and Grain did the trick. It's slightly shimmery, which is why I chose it over similar MAC shades, because my eyes are not very deep-set and matte E/S are bad news for me.
It blends very well and works as a great base allover color for me everyday. I use it often with Ricepaper for the brow and with my favorite MAC crease colors: Expensive Pink, Bronze, Sable, Woodwinked and Brun. (I'm a sucker for browns.)
Very pretty and brightens up my eyes... overall no complaints
This is part of my natural, every day make-up look, with this all over the lid and then Wedge in the crease and/or Espresso as a liner. Its a really nice subtle peachy colour, which looks great on my hazel/green eyes. Its got a nice sheen to it and adds definition to my eyes if worn on its own. A great colour that I would buy again.
l-o-v-e this eyeshadow!! i ordered it online after reading the good reviews and i am so happy i did. Im fair, so this shows up a good bronzey color. I use it all over my lid and sometimes add a little touch of naked lunch over it. great color!! will defiantly be repurchasing. (:
I was trying to decide between this and Naked Lunch as a lid/wash of color shadow during my recent Back2MAC exchange. The MUA on duty tried both colors on my lid and this one definitely won out. Perfect as an eye opening pop of color on my lids. Inbetween this and Brule, I'm set as far as neutral lid colors go! I use Brule when I just want a super bright eyed apperance, and Grain when I want a nice, almost peachy brightening pop of color. I'm NC45 for reference.
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. This color is lucious. It plays well with others, but also looks fantastic as a wash with some nice liner. It really opens your eyes, which for my very dark, deep set eyes is great. The color looks great with my fair beige, greeny/yellow undertoned skin. It's so versatile, and the formula, very creamy with a bit of sheen (NOT glitter), and packaging are excellent. If you don't yet have an eye-opening color that can be a highlight, a wash, or part of a more complicated design, get this. Or just get this anyway, it's that lovely.
True to MAC fashion, this shadow is a winner. I have olive colored skin and I can add a wash grain all over my lid in the mornings for a quick, easy brighter more awake eye. Subtle, no blending required. The satin finish is perfect. It also makes a wonderful, but not obvious highlighter to pair with a shimmery look. This was actually my first MAC shadow and I would definitely repurchase.
This color is so versatile.
It's a warm pinked beige with an icy sheen.... not glitter/frost.
It's a great lid color on a neutral day....
It's a great highlighter for medium skin.
I sometimes stick my 109 brush in it (the tip of the brush fit's perfectly in an eyeshadow pan) and use it as a blush.
It gives a healthy glow to the skin...
It blends easily.
