Doeskin is a beautiful matte-ish deeper nude/mushroom neutral shade which is versatile for day and night wear. I use it on my eyelids (too dark as an all over shadow) on my NC20-25 skintone. Application is a dream because it's quite buttery and stays on all day over Becca's Eye Tint. I love Becca's eyeshadow because it's neither too matte nor shimmery. My only negative about it is that it's very expensive for an eyeshadow.

Why did I not discover becca earlier? This kicks MAC eyeshadows down a few blocks... I do have to say the demi matte shadows are great for all over base and crease color. Doeskin, lame, and chantilly is my everyday staple. Great for work. I can see how girls my skintone (nc30) can complain how it does not show up... try using it as a brow filler if using this on your crease does not tickle your fancy.
Most definitely if you feel that MAC is not just what you look for... look at becca and you'll find shadows are a much more mature version of MAC (and of course more $$). I do not mind the packaging as every compact has a small mirror. I wish becca was more readily available as other makeup companies? Very understated makeup company in the states.

Doeskin is a soft, neutral fawn brown with a hint of pink, which I received in a swap (along with many other RAOK Becca shadows from that wonderful swapper). It's nicely pigmented one or two pats of the brush is all it takes for lid into crease. The texture (demi matte) is really interesting. It's matte but not totally matte; if you look closely you'll see a hint of gleam on the lids, but definitely no shimmer, so this formulation would look beautiful on maturing eyes.
What I don't love about the eyeshadows is the compact. I have nothing against the little rubber UFOs, but I wish they were manufactured so the pan easily popped out into a larger palette (Z or Unii). Given the horror stories I have read about how fragile the demi mattes are, I don't dare a depot attempt on my own, but none of my Becca shadows has ever crumbled, and they bounce around a fair bit in my vanity and makeup bag.
I said I would not buy this shadow again only because of the color. There is nothing special about it (Julie Hewett Runway is very close and even BB Cement is a distant cousin). If this shadow were more cool toned, instead of being as beige as it is. I'd give it 5 stars and say yes to a repurchase. But of all Becca's demi mattes, Doeskin is my favorite.

I purchased this during Becca's 25% off Spring sale this year. Doeskin is a light brownish nude with a hint of grey in it. It looks quite natural on my NC-20 skin. Love this because my eyes are deep set, and I do not like heavy color on my eyes.

I have been lemming Becca products for a loooong time, but they are staggeringly expensive (especially in Australia, even though the brand originated in this country - how fair is that???!!!) and impossible to find at a discounted price. So I have stopped myself from buying anything from Becca, mostly because I can't afford to get hooked.
Well. In my search for a neutral brownish shade that I could wear above the top eyelashes to the crease, I caved in and paid the AU$44 for Doeskin. OMG this eye shadow is awesome! The texture is silky smooth, and the demi-matt formula is the best I've ever come across! I've decided that super shimmery eye shadows (think Stila) just don't suit my over-40 eyes, but the super matte shadows don't look that great either. Both formulas seem to accentuate my wrinkles (boo!). What an amazing idea to come up with a demi-matt formula that is matte enough to look natural, but has just enough fine shimmer to add some dimension. Does not accentuate my wrinkles!! Yay!
The color is also wonderful. I thought at first it would be too cool for my warm skintone, but no. It's a beautiful neutral taupe, dark enough to show up on my NC20 skin, but light enough to look very natural. I can see that this wouldn't show up quite as well on darker skin, however. But for me, it's close to perfect.
I am now lemming many more of the demi-matt shadows. The Becca blushes and lip and cheek cremes look amazing as well. And I would love to try the lip glosses - so many wonderful, warm colors. If Becca's prices weren't so exhorbitant I could actually buy some of them! Instead I'll just have to sit and wonder what could have been. Sigh.
One lippy off for the ridiculous price of this tiny, tiny (but gorgeous) compact.

I adore this shadow and worship the swapper who sent it to me! My eyes are deep-set, so I'm always looking for shades that are light enough to not emphasize the structure around my eyes, but with enough depth to give my eyes some dimension. This is it. A light brown (yes, just like the color of a fawn in summer) with just enough shimmer, this is a no-brainer for me. I apply LM Buttercream as a base from lash to brow, then slap this on the lid and up over the crease. I don't need a special brush or touch or technique, and it's perfect. Add a bit of liner (taupe for a very soft look, a darker brown for a more defined look) and mascara and I'm good to go. I can understand how many people would find this too light or feel that it doesn't show up on them, but I feel as though Becca made this shade just for me!

Another disappointing Becca shade for me. Sometimes I just swap for items, sight unseen, cause i like the brand. As a fan of Becca, i have alot of the shadows. The colors are always very nuetral and soft and ever since sephora discounted these, a great deal at $5. Doeskin is a medium warm brown. Its just a little darker than my light olive nc30 complexion. It actually doesnt show up at all. You have to look very hard to see this and then the color so matches my skin that it looks like my dark outer v area on the outside part of my eye that i use concealer to cover. So overall, not a very flattering effect. I do think this would make a nice crease color for daytime on very pale skin. I think i am just in the weird -too - close - to - skin - color category for this shade.

How often do you buy eyeshadow over and over again? I'm on my second compact. I love Chantilly too-third compact of that. Not all the Sephora's are carrying it. I can only find it online or at the Sephora in Times Square. They import from Australia and have some issues with getting it in.
I love this brown. I have a problem finding that perfect neutral brown for my grayish blue eyes. Most browns are too red or too muddy. Doeskin is perfect. It also has the perfect amount of shimmer without looking frosty or accentuating every line or wrinkle on your eyelid. Doeskin is a great shadow to use in the crease.
My only complaint is the packaging. It protects the shadow well; however, you can't see what you're picking up. You must open the compact to see the color (and of course it's always the incorrect one). Other than that, I love Becca. I'm sold.

Super easy everyday color. Doeskin is a barely there neutral with a hint of shimmer. I use this as a wash and it brightens my whole eye w/o looking like I applied eyeshadow. I'm told it works very well with Lame but I don't have that yet. Great base shade and works very well with Becca Jewel Dusts. This is the perfect e/s for light to medium skintones who just want to toss something on and have the eye look even in tone and brightened. I will repurchase this shade when I run out. Not loving the 20 USD for the color but I'll live. Lasts all day on me w/o primer. I do use Becca loose powder on the lids prior to applying most of the time.
