Honestly speaking I really don't get much use out of this e/s, but it is without a doubt a very useful shade. I'm NC25 with yellow undertone. I've been using it on and off as e/s, but a lot of times I find myself reaching for it to give my nose "height" and definition! It's the perfect shade of matte brown (it's actually a medium or "light" coffee brown color, not at all dark) for that. It's highly pigmented, so a tiny little pat of my finger (and i have a light hand) is enough to give me the definition i want. Rather interesting. would work great as brow powder too if you use some kind of brow gel to make it stick.
I'm actually considering trying to use it for contouring, if I can do it lightly. Overall just many uses for this color and texture (blends great, but stays on)
Got it during LM's summer 50% off sale (I think she's getting rid of her old shadows to make room for the new stuff) and I've never been more glad. Sale ends this coming friday, definitely picking up some other stuff on there!

Love, Love, Love this color. I originally went in to buy Bamboo but the LM makeup artist felt that it would look blah on me due to my coloring (PPP - way lighter than a NW15, blonde and highlighted hair and brown eyes with a little gold in them) and instead she suggested using Buttercream as a base with American Coffee on the crease and outer lower lid and wow this made my brown eyes look amazing ------ I normally tend to stay away from all "warm" type shades as to be honest, they look like shit on me ------ everytime I meet a makeup artist they always says let's do peachy shades and afterwards they even admit that it looks horrible on me, so when I saw the American Coffee shade I thought no way as this looks warm, but yet it truly works for me and makes my eyes stand out. I also love that this is a matte as matte eyeshadows tend to look better on me and I actually prefer matte, but more and more I am finding that most shades are non-matte. American Coffee combined with Buttercream are keepers for me and a combo that I will be using a very, very long time.

American Coffee looks like the colour of coffee its a rich pigmented brown shadow you can use to accent with or crease colour, or to fill in your brows. It has a silky texture and very blendable.

Laura Mercier's eyeshadows are brilliant. Great pigmentation and texture. Don't think I'll bother with any other brand. Will be getting more colours.

I've been using this color paired with buttercream and vanilla nuts for almost 11 years. I like it, but yet I always seem to wander. It is plain, and at times I've thought it was too red, but I think now I was just in a cool tone kick at the time. I like it in the crease, but wish it was a little darker at times. I guess I could layer more, but I might try another LM brown. It is perfect the way that it is for daytime wear though. It's one of those colors that just makes me look perfect though, not tired, or dirty eyed, or socked in the eye, just perfect me but better eyeshadow.

I fell in love with this in my Eye Paints palette. American Coffee is a soft, mostly matte golden brown. If you study it closely, there's a very subtle shimmer that brightens the color a bit. I love this for a neutral eye, especially paired with Topaz.

This shadow is truely a basic brown but I adore the quality. It's every bit as fine a shadow as anything Dior ever made and I prefer the packaging to Dior. It blends beautifully which is a critical attribute for a brown shade. I can use this for brows as well as a soft brown liner with a bit of water.

This is a very dull brown. A MA at NM recommended this to go with St. Germain. I think she came up with the combo off the top of her head but I really like the suggestion by the other reviewer of using as a brow powder. Now I may get some use out of this.
