I love this eyeshadow but not as an eyeshadow. This is my perfect brow powder and my perfect contour powder. I'm a chocolate girl and I have had a lot of difficulty finding a contour powder for when I'm wearing a nude look. I love Cover Girl's Ebony Bronze Bronzer when I'm doing anything with color but the red undertone in this bronzer sucks when your doing nude or neutral looks. This is where this shadow comes in handy. I apply this with JW's Proline Circular Foundation Brush (which sucks for foundation). It picks up very little powder so you can apply it without looking like a drag queen. I also use this with any liner brush for my eyebrows. It's not too light and not to dark. You really can't beat this multi-purpose shadow price either. It retails for $4.79.

I got this from a friend who was doing a makeup stash cleansing. At first, I didn't really know what to do with it. I have a million dark brown shadows so I wasn't really eager to use this very often. So it sat in my stash untouched for ages as I reached for more interesting brown shades. After reading some reviews online about this, I decided to try to use this for my brows. I was previously using the color Naked from the Urban Decay Naked palette on my brows for a quick and natural look. This mocha color is MUCH darker than the Urban Decay, but it gives me a very nice defined look. Plus, I only use a smidgen to do an entire brow. I now use this everyday to fill in my brows, excellent pigmentation and consistency. I won't repurchase because I will probably never run out of this!

I said i wouldn't buy this again, but its because there is so much product! Twice as much as a Mac shadow...
I so LOVE this shade to death. Its the basic matte brown that everyone needs to have in their collection. It's smooth and pigmented and lasts really long with primer. It's a bit hard to blend, but i sometimes just use this to smoke out my eyes, perfect!

After years of using this product as a liner, I've finally found a process that gives really nice results:
1. Add glycerin to the pan. Just a few drops and let it soak in overnight. This helps the texture when shadow is wet. If you find that the shadow is clumpy after being moistened, used, and allowed to dry, add more glycerine. I only need to "condition" the shadow occasionally.
2. Apply eye primer and shadows. Blend well.
3. Fill a "virgin" mister bottle with distilled water. Spritz both the pan and your angle brush. Blot the excess from the brush, then use the brush to spread the water over the shadow. This will load the brush and mix the shadow with the water.
4. Tight line: Press shadow into base of lashes, then line upper lid as close to lashline as possible. I get the best results with short strokes, working from the outside in. (Thanks Gingerrama. You seem to have moved your tight lining instructions, but you are still awesome.)
This system gives me definition and reasonably full looking lashes without mascara or the "Hey, nice eyeliner!" effect. I use a short synthetic angle brush (EcoTools.) The pan spritz makes a huge difference. Distilled water is pretty stable, but reasonable caution on the creepy crawly front is always advised.
Packaging: I scraped and repressed this shadow into smaller pans from TKB. A smaller pan is easier to work with, and I don't need lots of product to line my eyes. Also, I de-pot and keep everything in a magnetic palette. The glue Loreal uses will not come off the back of the pan. I use my thumbnail to lift the pan out of the palette before I spritz it. The residual sticky on the back of the pan made this a huge pain.
I addition to the glue thing, the "drugstore style" compact is crap: flimsy, easily broken, yet unrecyclable. Even though the lid will snap off the compact with a laughable ease, the bottom half is thicker and tougher. Since I've worn Loreal shadows for a while, I've worked out a whole depoting system. I use a woodburning kit with an exacto knife to basically disassemble the compact around the pans. It's a noxious process, literally and figuratively. I won't repurchase because I'm done with the MacGyver style de-poting. However, I have a multi-year supply of this product, so I wouldn't need to repurchase for a couple of US presidential election cycles anyway. Hopefully Loreal will have gone to a nice recyclable compact and an improved glue situation by 2016.

I've been in search for a perfect brown matte crease color and this is it. The color is more of a Black/Brown but works with most of my eye looks. It swatches pretty chalky but when using a 222 and apply it over a base shadow it blends beautifully and easily every time and I've been using it daily for over a month now.
Currently I'm using TFSI, with WnW Brulee as a base on my entire eye, UD Ruthless on the lid and L'Oreal Deep Mocha in the crease. Finished off with either Clinique Brush-On Cream Eyeliner in Deep Brown or ULTA Automatic Eyeliner in Deep Brown and Cover Girl Great Lash Volume in Black/Brown.
This is my go to eye since like my complexion it's a neutral that leans cool but do-able with slightly warmer toned blush and bronzer.

I use this religiously to sculpt my cheekbones and other areas when needed. Used very lightly, it looks like a shadow instead of a streak across your face.

I like this eyeshadow, but I don't use it on my eyes very much. I use this to set my brow liquid eyeliner, doesn't last longer than 5 hours on my oily lids without a primer. I use this as an eyebrow filler and it goes on nicely! I have black hair, black Asian eyes, and very spars eyebrows! My eyebrows are black but black eyebrows make me look mean. this deep brown/mocha shade makes me look less harsh! Would definitely buy again!

This color and shadow are perfect for use as a liner. I don't care much for the packaging, but for the price, color, and quality, it isn't a big deal.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Brown
love this color! it's a nice matte chocolate brown that I use in my everyday look, along with CG Champagne and Mink. I have found that it also makes a good brow powder :) I would repurchase it.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair, Neutral Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I love this stuff! I use it daily as my brow powder, and it's great. It makes my eyebrows look natural and defined at the same time. AND it's great as an eyeliner and crease color! I usually use black as eyeliner but when I wanna switch it up and look more neutral/ conservative this is perfect.

This is a matte shade; I tried it in the crease of my eyes and it's too dark. So, I tried it out as an eyeliner and an eyebrow color. It works out perfect for both and I will definitely buy this product again...

This is the best drugstore brown eye shadow I have found. It's a beautiful matte brown that looks lovely on. It comes with a sponge-tip applicator which I actually do find useful. You can pack the color onto it and it will go on the lid evenly. I love to use the applicator to put the color on my lower lid though. I definitely recommend this color because it's cheap and it comes with a lot of product so it will last a long time.

I don't think this works well as eyeshadow, but as eyeliner or an eyebrow filler, it works great! I have black eyebrows, medium skin color, and it makes my brows look very natural. So for that, I'll buy it again.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I think this color looks really muddy. It doesnt go on smoothly either. The pigments is ok but it doesnt blend good. Some body wrote that it works good as an eyeliner, so i will try that. I hate to throw away make up.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
As an eye shadow? Its okay, rich pigmentation but really hard to blend and the dark color can make your eyes look really small if not done correctly. As an eye liner? Good stuff. I prefer the wet application but both can be done well with this color. I get a lot of compliments when I apply it with a slightly damp brush, people always ask me where I buy my liquid eyeliner. It's just that smooth and rich. I have had mine about a year and have barely dented the surface. I don't think I will ever hit the pan but, if I do, I will re-purchase.

Hm... well... I really really like this color. I think it's a gorgeous deep brown with a nice texture that can be used as an eye liner if applied wet. BUT, like any other eye shadow I've tried, it creases like crazy - then again, I have oily eye lids and watery eyes. If using a base like the uber expensive Urban Decay Primer Potion, it's great. In addition, I like using this to fill in my eye brows. I have brown hair, and this matches well without looking too dark or fake. I recommend these eye shadows from L'Oreal because they actually have a lot of pigment and look like they're supposed to, as well as lasting fairly long. While I would probably repurchase, I am not furiously loyal toward this brand.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this brown. It is very hard to find a good deep ash brown shadow, most are too warm/reddy or light. This is perfect for a smokey eye, I mix it with a little MAC Trax for a shimmery plum-brown mix to make my blue eyes pop. Good coverage, works well with a base to prevent creasing.

The color itself is gorgeous, just the dark brown I was looking for, highly pigmented. But it's hard to blend! You have to apply it sheer first, then layer on. And it creases. I won't be buying it again.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Highly pigmented so you don't need very much. Therefore, it'll last you forever! And it's versatile: you can get a very natural look or go for the smoky eyes (which I do very often). I recommend using a slanted eyeshadow/liner brush for a clean line - instead of using a separate liner. And it's helpful to wet the brush a bit before using this product. Then it will REALLY stay put with absolutely no touch-ups needed for the remainder of the day!

HG for lining. This has enough pigment, but not too much (like Trish McEvoy's Definers) where sprinkles fall into my lower lid. This is a great dark brown that's not too warm for my fair skin. I use this with my Laura Mercier lining brush, but could be used with any good flat brush. It gives a defined, soft line that doesn't look as garish on me as all of the gel/cream liners on the market, but a thinner line than pencils.
