This is my favorite eye shadow ever! It's a slightly sparkly peach color that isn't too pink and or too orange. It makes my eyes look even more green when I wear it with LM Stellar eye shadow. These shadows are very silky and have great lasting power. I actually prefer them to Bobbi Brown and Estee Lauder's shadows.

Don't think this is pigmented enough for an eyeshadow. Goes on very sheer with a pearl finish. I don't like that it crumbles so easily–such a mess! However, I do love this as a highlighter on my brow bone and on cheekbones, nose, and cupid's bow.

Yes, the color is gorgeous - that's what drew me to buy it. A nice pinky/peach. But guess what? It didn't stay put and you can barely tell I had it on. Maybe because my skin is light so you couldn't tell.
It is finely milled so after one stroke of the brush, it goes all over making my table dusty and dirty. The color doesn't show much on my lids so not worth it.

I love this shadow. it's a soft shimmery light, pinky peach. Very similar but a bit pinker and not as finely milled as Chanel Abricot. It's soft an easy to apply. An easy everyday color for me and really brings out my eyes (blue).

I always wanted to try LM e/s. I think the colors are so soft and natural looking. This color in particular looks pinkish peach in the pan. I like the color in the pan but it seems not to show up on me. I think the color is probably too light and would look fabulous on lighter skinned ladies. The packaging is simple, just a brownish color compact with a hinge lid. No frills. I like the texture of this e/s, but not the color. Perhaps I'll try a different shade that would suit me.
Age: 56 & Over Skin: Very Dry, Fair Hair: Red Eyes: Blue
I really like this colour as an all over wash for day. I don't like the sparkley shadows, but this has just the right touch of shimmer. For me, the colour is very wearable, not too pink and I've also worn it over whatever colour I'm using in the crease to look more "natural" after applying three shades of shadow! . Cheers!

In a nutshell, just wasn't flattering on me (light skin, dark brown hair, blue eyes, look best in neutrals), it was just all wrong, made me look worn out.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Sorry to be one of the few who didn't care for this. I have mac nc30 skin, hazel brown eyes, and blondish hair. This made me look like I'd been crying, or like I had really bad allergies, maybe even a little tired. It was just aweful. I can see how it would look good on blue eyed gals though. Great quality product, just the wrong color for me.

i cannot believe i haven't reviewed this! Standard mid-upscale rectangular package. creamy pinky peach (leans heavily to peach) shimmer shadow that shows as a satin on my eyes, not uber shimmery (and that's rare because usually if there is one sparkle it shows up as overly frosty and white on my lll/fff skin). The quality is fabulous and maybe only cle de peau is better; chantecaille shine shades & scott barnes compare though the texture is completely different. This is a very creamy powder, in fact I've not had such a creamy powder except for some of the chantecaile lasting if you get them fresh from the company soon after manufature. The color is perfect, and really makes any eye color pop, especially blue or green eyes. People have complained about the price, but you get what you pay for, and this falls between urban decay/stila and chantecaille with the beneifts of both (good pigment and butter texture, although perhaps not as buttery as UD, but it isn't loaded with toxic chemicals either.)all in all this looks polished, feminine and not like I'm trying to hard. reminds me of movie mu when the character is supposed to be gorgeous and au naturale:)

I have to admit, when I read makeupismylife's review, saying she sometimes has to just stop and stare at this color, I thought it was pretty silly. OOOPS, now I know she wasn't just being funny. This is a BEAUTIFUL color, gorgeous for spring. I wear it as an all-over wash, and the color really is worthy of just staring at and admiring yourself and how pretty it makes you look. I have pretty pale skin, though, and find myself building this color up quite a bit, so I think if you have darker skin this color may be too light. But for the pale among us, this color really is soft and lovely and oh-so-flattering. Will buy again and again!

I'm a very tanned/olive skin tone filipino and this did nothing for me. It's a nice wash but it doesn't go well with dark skin.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
This is a really hott shadow. It's a gorgeous shimmery pinky peach that I use to highlight my browbone or even as a blush. The color is so pretty and enchanting, sometimes I just have to stop and stare at it...haha def check it outt.

When I was at LM's national event over the weekend, a make up artist applied this colour as base over eye basic in Wheat, and I loved it. It's a bit overpriced but the quality is excellent. Its pink-peachy colour with a bit of shimmer is perfect for day time look and it goes well with my skin tone and eye colour (I'm asian with dark brown eyes).

Pretty peachy-pink, a staple for gals with blue or green eyes. Not a stand-out color, but an Old Faithful of superior quality.

Guava is one of my favorite daytime eye looks, applied as a sheer wash of flesh-pink shimmer all over the eyelid. It agrees with many other eye colors I have, and acts as a cheekbone highlighter in a pinch. Top scores for versatility and silky texture. I'm an Asian MMM and am wary of pinks, but this one works for me.

I really like this shadow. It is peachy pink iwth a very subtle shimmer. It is perfect for a base or wash. I can put just about anything in the crease--browns, grays, plums. It doesn't look like peach eyeshadow on my lids but rather a "my lids but better" color. I also like it on its own with liner for a quick, natural eye look. I love LM products!!!

This is my favorite color from the Laura Mercier Mini Eye Paints palette. A beautiful peachy pink. A pretty color for blue eyes.
Age: Unknown Skin: Combination Hair: Other Eyes: Other
a subtle pinked shadow looks lovely on my blue eyes. In the crease I wear Rose. I have a glow in my skin like I was 7 again.
There's a slight gold sparkle in the shadow.
(update: requires re-application during the day. There is not a great staying power for the shadow)
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
This is *so* pretty- kind of reminds me of a softer, less metallic version of Urban Decay X eyeshadow. It's a rose pink with a hint of peach, infused with a gold shimmer. The shimmer is really subtle, not at all OTT.

This is my very first LM product, which I received in a swap.
The color has shine to it, a pink and peachy shade. I think it would be a beautiful blush as well, but as a shadow, it's not so pink that it'll make you look like a clown or like you just came out of a weeping session. The peach in it flatters the color of the skin and warms up the look. It has some shimmer to it so it just adds brightness to the eyes as well.
This shadow doesn't apply heavily but the color shows up very nicely. The staying power is a lot better when applied wet. When applied dry, it doesn't tend to last too long.
The only complaint I have is the packaging. It comes in a square brown container w/ a tiny mirror (that fell off!). I guess i'm not a fan of the color brown. The packaging is a bit "old" and "boring."
I would def. buy this product again because of the beautiful shade.
