This is one of my favorite eyeshadows! I guess I am in the minority it seems on makeup alley, but I absolutely love this. It's very shimmery, liike other reviewers have said. It has a nice champagne-y tone to it. Looks very nice as a sheer wash of color when swatched dry onto lids. Brightens up my eyes, and lasts all day with primer.
It can also be used wet, then it gets a more frosty finish. However, I mostly wear it dry over mac painterly paint pot, one coat of mascara, and i'm ready for work. The color is called ballet pink, but to me, there's no pink in it.

This is what I expected MAC Naked Lunch to look like. Some baked shadows (LM Violet Sky and most MAC Mineralized shadows, I'm talking to you!) have horrible pigmentation and get crumbly, but Ballet Pink goes on with good pigmentation and with a velvety texture.
The color is very peachy rather than pink. It gives me (NW15) a "my lids but better" look and brightens up my eyes. It is, though, very frosty. It seems amazing how frosty this is considering that it's a baked shadow. No noticeable glitter, but it is quite shimmery. My favorite way to wear this is on the lid with a matte neutral (BB Hot Stone today) in the crease. It would probably work as a brow bone highlighter for folks who don't mind super-frosty highlighters.
I like this but I don't love it, mostly because of its frostiness. I do love how easy it is to work with (very blendable) and its lasting power over a primer. This is pretty and nicer than Naked Lunch IMO, but not a must-have.

A peachy-pink, uber frosty shadow with an underlying white cast. For me, not just too frosty for day and too frosty full stop. Cooler-toned complexions should appreciate this more than yellow-based variants.
