if you like chocolate ES, matte and perfect, this is the shade for you.
it works beautifully as a contour color, an eyebrow color, a lower lid definer, or a total lid color for a dark chocolate smokey eye.
it is a classic... it is a must for most women who want a brown eye shadow with life since it is not muddy, red or too dark.
This is my favourite eyeshadow by MAC. I bought 4 eyeshadows plus a 4 palette which cost me about £45 so that was quite expensive but it seems to be worth it.
Espresso is a nice chocolatey matte colour, I use this to create a smokey brown eye. I also use it on my eyebrows after finding that Kim Kardashian does the same. I always find eyeshadows are worth putting the money in for, because cheaper eyeshadows often shimmer or are transparent. Others have said this has poor colour but I disagree, it goes on perfectly for me.
This is such a versatile eyeshadow. I use this eyeshadow to fill in my eyebrows. I have black hair and this eyeshadow looks perfect for my eyebrows. It makes my eyebrows look very natural and definitely does not look harsh.
This eyeshadow is also great as a crease color. For my "smokey" eye, I use this eyeshadow in my crease. It isn't as dark as a black but gives a nice smoked out look. You can also wear this color on it's own for all over the lid.
I would personally purchase this product over and over again. For an eyeshadow that is so versatile, I've had my shadow for over a year!
Perfect brown with...... no red or orange undertones.
A lot of browns tend to look a little black, when they do not have any red or orange tones in them.
But.......not this one! Yay
It really is a true cool brown! Perfect!
Perfect for the crease.
Perfect for my eye brows! It gives a natural brown look.
H.G. Status!!!! For sure! Yay!
This looks great on my NC40 skintone. I love to place this in my crease or on the lid. It blends easily and has good staying power. If I ever was out of brow powder-this can be used for it. I use Espresso in almost all of my eye looks. I love this color and will repurchase it in the future.
Wonderful crease colour! really nice deep brown! it's a matte and really pigmented!
Great for creating a neutral smokey eye!
I purchased this and bronze together, wasn't smart, they're the same color, except bronze is a shimmer. I like bronze better, but if you a matte person, this one is for you. It's a great crease color.
I love this color! It's my favorite brown color from MAC, I use it for the crease alot though. It's great for smoky eyes
This was my second MAC e/s and I just wasn't impressed. I purchased this in the refill pan it's a neutral black/brown in a matte finish, not a muted golden brown like MAC description.
I've read review where they've mentioned that the top layer had to be scraped off before they were happy with it. For me it should work just as I purchase it and this just didn't work. Chalky, not blend-able and to dark (harsh) for a natural look.
For reference I'm a NW/NC 25 or Light-Medium with Neutral/Beige Undertone
Espresso is one of my favorite eyeshadows from MAC! I like pairing this with Honey Lust & Brule for a great everyday neutral eye. Espresso is highly pigmented & blends well with other shadows.
