NW10-15 (neutral-cool toned, very fair), blue eyes, Color season is True Summer, Baumann Skin Type is OSPW.
This color looks muddy on my eyes. I was hoping to find a good matte base shadow color, but this is not it.

I purchased this after the rave reviews on MUA, but to my dismay this color is not worth purchasing unless you are extremely fair skinned. This does not even show up on my eyelid (NC25). If you are looking for a transition color, I have a "Guide to MAC Transition Colors" on my blog, so feel free to check it out!

A great, light, taupe-y brown color that looks lovely on my lighter skin. It definitely has some pink undertones, but they are so sheer you can barley tell. It kind of reminds me of Velvet Revolver from the Too Faced Natural Eye Palette. I definitely recommend!

I had to write a review on this after being complimented on my eye makeup and being asked for the third time in a week to write down what eye shadow colors I was wearing. I pair MAC Malt with MAC Swiss Chocolate in the crease and Urban Decay Bourbon eye pencil on upper and lower lash line. It makes my green eyes pop and I am surprised how good this looks with my fair skin with pink undertones and dark brown hair. I find MAC shadows go on smoothly and blend well. I'll definately buy again when I run out!

I originally bought this shadow because I was doing a pin up look. I layered it on top of Indianwood paint pot with Saddle in the crease, Handwriiten in the outer v, Carbon to darken the corner, and heavy winged eyeliner. It was beautiful! I'm an nw 50 for reference and I don't find this color to be washed out looking or chalky on me at all. Perfect for a neutral wash of color.

Besides Haux this is the e/s I use the most. The blend of pink and taupe makes for a natural shade to liven up the eyes. I look more rested and awake when I wear Malt and it pairs so well with my beloved Haux. As a PPP I've found it to work really well as a light blush or contour color.

I thought that I would love this color after seeing it swatted online. It looked like a cooler beige/tan color, but it showed up very warm and red/orangey on my pale pinkish skin. I was so disappointed! I am finding grays work better for me than browns. More power to those of you who can pull this off!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Very Dry, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Black
Nice color. It's like the same color as my lids but a tad bit lighter.I've only paired it with Folie and I like that combo. I'll try to use it with other colors to see if I like it more. It kinda reminds me of Kid only more pink or peachy.

All time fave shadow! Malt is so wearable! In fact I was on a cruise this summer and forgot my blushes and I used this! I just think its so versatile and looks so nice as a lid base with a bronze brown blended in the crease. I will always have this color in my bag!

my go-to shadow (i'm an NC30) - i've hit pan at least half a dozen times and never want to be without this shade. You would think there would be a good dupe out there, but I have yet to find one. It's tough to get this pinky taupe without becoming muddy, i guess. I've seen this on eBay and can't help but wonder why - by the time you pay for shipping you're paying more than you would just going to the MAC store.
MAC shadows in general are a bit spendy, but not ridiculous - i've never found better colour selection or quality at this price point, so I won't quibble about spending around 20.00. They last and last, too. This is an HG color for me!

Have to chime in. . .Malt is my #1 everyday color. Very natural on fair skin. If MAC ever discontinues, I'm in deep trouble.

This is a great color and goes with so many other MAC shadows. My favourite is Malt in the crease, with Copperplate in the corner. Blended really well. And Painterly Paintpot on the lid, and some highlighter on the browbone. And a good thick lining with Penultimate in black. Good stuff.

My favorite transitional color :) after I put painterly paint pot on, I blend this shadow in the crease (I'm NW20 for reference) and it is enough to give me a defined crease, so that I can pretty much apply any color in the lid (usually all that glitters or satin taupe). Sometimes I blend kid on the crease, slightly below malt. It browns my look a little more and creates more of a darker, dimentional crease. I will definately repurchase malt, I find it really useful; it's very hard to fail at blending eyeshadows with this on your crease :)

This colour really works for me when I want to do an almost no makeup look. I put it in the crease and blend upwards. It is a few shades darker than the my natural colour but it opens up my eyes quite a bit and doesn't look like I am wearing any eyeshadow. It looks paler in the pan than on the skin - I bought it for the brow bone but it's too dark.
If you have a lightish skin and want to make your eyes look bigger but not made up at all - then this could work for you.

On my fair skin, Malt shows as a light peachy brown shade. I have tried this in the crease a few times and found it to be too light and orange for that purpose. I can't really determine any other uses for it. Texture is nice though.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Very Oily, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Blue
I didn't like this at first because it was one of my first MAC eyeshadows and I didn't have much to pair it with. Now that my collection is grown I find myself using it a lot more. I love it in the crease with Yogurt and on the lid with a darker brown in the crease. Anyway its worn it really brings out my blue eyes. I will definitely repurchase this eyeshadow!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair, Neutral Hair: Red Eyes: Green
Pretty colour with a smooth texture, but it was a struggle and a lot of trial and error to make this shadow work for me. I found on my lid or in the crease it looked muddy and made me look tired and kind of sick. The only purpose I have found with this shadow is a blending colour. The usual colours I use for this purpose are Seedling, Wedge, and Soft Brown, and I'm able to add this to this category as well. It's not a colour I use very often and I have to use a very light application, and it seems to pair best with warm brown shadows. Personally I wouldn't repurchase and I doubt I'll ever hit pan.

I bought this as a dupe for my favorite mac eyeshadow that was in the smoke and mirrors palette. It is matte so it didn't have the small fine glitters i wanted but its still a nice eyeshadow regardless. Its a light pinkish beige that I think is pretty versatile.
