Absolutely love Motif and it's become one of my many fave eye shadows to wear recently paired with a bright & bold pink, orange, or coral lip. Motif adds that beautiful and interesting touch on the lid without clashing or looking over down when paired with a brighter lip. Motif looks like a boring neutral in the pan, but once applied it takes on a life with a duochrome golden peachy-pink finish. Love pairing it with either Moleskin, Kid, Wedge, Malt, or Soft Brown in the crease, add a little Cork, Down Brown, or Saddle in the V to deepen it and Blanc Type or Vanilla on the brow bone for a neutral and easy eye.

A nice neutral colour with a strong pink shimmer on my NC44 skin. Nice to have, but not necessary.

Actually, I really like this eyeshadow!!!! Its super pretty and unique. Its dark yellowy-gold with raspberry sheen. Something nice to wear instead of everyday neutrals.

If you just glance at this color, it looks pretty boring, yellow too, and unappealing, but once it's on, you can see just how awesome this eyeshadow is. It's a duochrome peach with a gorgeous shimmer of purple/pink. When it's applied, the yellow truly fades to peach and just alllows a beautiful highlight to your eyelids. Not terribly dramatic, but definitely noticable. I like to wear this everyday, and it looks great lit with Nocturnelle. I will definitely buy again.

This eyeshadow is really neat. When the gal at the MAC store showed this to me I thought she was crazy. I had just told her I don't like anything gold or yellow or orange. But then she showed me that if I mix Motif with Mulch, it turns this beautiful purple/brown/pink colour. I absolutely love how it looks together and have been wearing it almost everyday since I got it with Mulch. Very cool.

This is the coolest eyeshadow!I recieved this in a swap and I freaking love it!It looks yellow in the pan but once applied it is a beautiful pearl pinkish color depending on what other shadows you use ,it reflects that color.I love using this on my lid with swiss chocolate in my crease,I wear that look at least 4 times a week!If you have the opportunity to own this shadow,definely do it!!

I love this es!! And one of the main reasons I'm reviewing it is that I would NEVER have picked it out at first glance. In the pan it looks orange-y gold to me and being cool toned it would have terrified me! It was recommended to me by an online MA and was used with Motif as base, paradisco in the crease, and Sketch in the outer corner. I LOVE this look. My eyes are brown with a little green and Motif is excellent for that. The trick is to find the right es to use it with. It is wonderful with Copperplate. I have also used it with Sable in the crease and I love those togther. It can be used just to give a little pop on the center of the lid too. This really is a hidden gem. I love the color payoff and I have to say this is one of the only duochromes that can actually works on me. Give it a try! I think this would be very flattering on a wide range of skintones.

Love, love, LOVE this eyeshadow!!! I have been looking for a light gold/pink duochrome eyeshadow ever since I ran out of my beloved I Nuovi Lava eyeshadow, which I bought on a trip to the Philippines in 2006. I have been searching for years and finally saw MAC Motif on MUA and had to buy it. (I got it for $12 on Amazon.) The color is a sheer gold with pink mica that makes it "change color". It's a sheer, iridescent and alluring color that works so well with my NC40 skin. I use it on my lid, with Embark along the crease for a gorgeous daytime look that makes my brown eyes really pop. Ahhhhhhh love it- sooo pretty!!

I love this color, I've used it for years. It sometimes shows pink, gold or a light orange, and goes with everything I wear. It has a shimmer. The coverage can be applied heavy, or very sheer. It can be applied wet or dry, I usually wear it dry.
For the money, I think MAC eye shadow is the best thing out there. This is my favorite color, but I have tons of MAC eye shadows in my make up bag.

MOTIF looks pale gold in the pan, but on my pale skin only the pink shimmer shows. I use it to wash a pretty dimension over other colors on the lid. Over PATINA it looks amazing!
EDIT: I don't think I emphasized enough what a sophisticated, subtle dimension this can add when washed over other colors or even a neutral eye design. A photo just can't capture it. So pretty
