The funny thing about this shade is that it swatched really beautifully!
This shadow is a little lighter the MAC Kid. It has fine glitter just like MAC's Vanilla. It is a very pretty neutral-warm toned flesh colored shadow with very fine gold glitter in it. Needless to say that the glitter doesn't really translate to your lids. Unfortunately, neither does the color.
The texture is dry as the desert. The easiest way to put the color on your lids is by using your fingers or a sponge. Either way, you have to go back and forth multiple times.
I have tried brushes (from ELF, to Sigma, MAC and my beloved Wayne Goss #18). Neither one works with this shadow.
I am not purchasing this again. Rather I would try an alternative, I'm sure Inglot has tons!
I am very disappointed, cause this would be my go-to color and I had very high hopes for Inglot. I got this with 9 other shadows the first time I visited the store. I find that Inglot is generally good, but inconsistent. Some shadows are incredible some are ok, and this one is worse than 90's Wet'n'Wild.
Advice: When you go to Inglot, ask to borrow a brush to swatch their shadows. Make your money worth it and don't get sold by the hype.

Well, I finally made my way to the Inglot store in Time Square this past week. I entered and was immediately overwhelmed with the amazing showcase of products they had to offer. I have been debating for months whether or not I should order Inglot products online, so I knew I had to purchase something to say I own something from Inglot. I was immediately drawn to the Freedom System and loved the whole idea of it; the only problem was, I was skeptical on how much I would use a whole new palette of a brand I was not entirely familiar with. I decided to look at the lipsticks and the single eyeshadows. I, then, came across 2 tables in the fronts, with products 30% or 40% off products. The makeup artist told me that the formula and the colors are the same for the new system; only the packaging changed, so if I liked something of the "new" range, I would be paying $5 more for just the packaging. I looked through the eyeshadows and was thinking about getting this gorgeous lavender with a more pink tone. It contained fine glitter, but the eyeshadow, itself, was matte. The MUA showed me #456 which was similar in type of eyeshadow as the previous one I saw, but was more neutral. It is my natural tone (olive-y... pale for now since it is winter) color (maybe slightly darker... can be if built up) and has gold glitter. For reference, it is somewhere in the middle of Bootycall and Tease in the naked 2 palette (slightly darker than Bootycall, lighter than tease... and has gold glitter). Personally, I own nothing like this shade even though it is so simple. I decided that if I walked out with nothing else, I could walk out with just that and I'd be perfectly satisfied. I paid $7.00 USD, as opposed to $12.00 USD (for the new packaging). Though I normally would not cough out 7 bucks on a single eyeshadow, I remembered that MAC eyeshadows are double the price (just a single) and Urban Decay singles retail at $18. Also, you get 2g of product! Way more than a MAC shadow. The quality is excellent. I have not had a problem with fallout (but it is a neutral color for me and provides a lovely natural look... I am not aware of any fallout, if there is any). It applies wonderfully with one swipe and blends with other eyeshadows with little effort. Now that I have tried something from Inglot, I am more confident in purchasing something from them online or go back to Time Square to splurge on some more products!
Also, I must add... RIP Wojciech Inglot. May he rest in peace.
