I love the complexity of this shadow. It is so many thing depending on what you wear or pair with it. Don't let the color in the pan fool you. When applied Twinks is a pretty sheer, buildable bronzey-plummy-brown. It's gorgeous all on its on with a highlight shade and liner...a perfect semi-smokey eye for those of us that can't really pull off a smokey eye. The lasting power is average (when used with UD PP) and I'm not really thrilled with the VP texture...but whatever. I really like this shadow but I don't find it at all unique (Stila Barefoot Contessa and UD Roach are very, very similar if not exact duplicates) but I would still consider it a must-have for all MAC lovers or newbies.

This is a lovely, lovely color. I do see the dirty plum (almost brown) mixed with gold, but it also has a pink overcast. I used with my new Clinique touch tint in pink sheen (love these, too), and it is the perfect duo. I thought it would be too red, but it truly makes my teal green eyes pop. Although it is a veluxe pearl, I could see myself wearing this for day and heavier for night. This is one Mac shadow that I would definitely repurchase. Beautiful! I also found it easy to apply (no flakes), and because of its smooth and creamy texture, it was a dream to blend. I have warm toned skin with teal/olive/gold eyes.

MAC's site says "Dirty plum with gold reflects" but I am yet to see any plum or gold in it, just a hint of red, but it's the most gorgeous brown ever. Perfect versatile neutral color especially for a smokey eye, great liner when used wet, it really brings out the blue in my blue/grey/green eyes, this is the first shadow I've ever hit pan on and I haven't even had this for very long, definitely my favourite MAC shadow!

Yay! First golden brown shade that doesn't turn orange on me! This is the best neutral brown for the perfect smokey eye or just to use as a crease colour, goes with almost anything really. Plus, it's a veluxe pearl which is my fave finish! A must!

This color is a bronzey brown. It does remind me a little of Mulch, BUT Twinks has more of a plummy/purply undertone to it. Looks great when I want to go for a smokey or dramatic look. Very pretty shade, but for some odd reason,the texture is not quite as smooth as I had expected it to be given it is a Veluxe pearl. Other than that, it's a definite winner.

This is a nice shimmery brown (veluxe pearl formula) that I thought would possibly be similar to Antiqued, but it's more brown, less red. It's a good neutral, doesn't wash out my eyes and make them tired-looking when I use it as a neutral crease shade. The name is regrettable. (referring to underage objects of desire I believe, not a great name for an eye shadow.)

When the new Veluxe Pearls came out, this was one of the ones that caught my eye. A few people mentioned that this is similar to Mulch, and since I don't own Mulch, I wanted to buy Twinks because of the VP finish. As with all VP finishes, the quality of this e/s is superb. Intially I wore this paired with Expensive Pink or Woodwinked, but it wasn't enough of a contrast to make them stand out. On my lids, Twinks doesn't show up very well for some reason - in my MAC pan, this sits side by side with my Milani Java Bean and they look very similar. I tested a swipe of Twinks and Milani Java Bean and I liked Java Bean better - I didn't like the red undertones of Twinks, and on my lids JB is much more pigmented (I'm NC30). I swapped this away, but I might check out Mulch in the future.

It's a gorgeous color; maybe it's my lighting but it resembles another favorite of mine called 'Mulch'. Still, there is a hint of plum in there that adds a little something to is. I use this with Dazzlelight (which reminds me a little of Nylon, but I digress) and the two look good together.

I was at Nordies a couple of days ago to see the new Holiday offerings and tried on Twinks because I like browns especially on the plummy side. I thought it looked pretty ho hum in the pot and a lot like another brown I have from MAC but when I got in my car and looked in the mirror there is all this subtle but wonderful golden sparkle and when I got home and looked in my BR mirror I really fell in love. It truly is unique and is not brown but more plum and that golden shimmer/sparkle really added depth to my eyes! I am a GGG with hazel eyes and as we speak am ordering this from MAC!

I can't really add anything new to what people have already said. This is a nice shadow, but there are tons like it so I knocked one lippie off for that. It's pretty and really makes my green eyes pop. I use it as a lid color or a liner. Here is a picture of me with twinks on the lid. The rest of the eye is MAC Bare Canvas paint as a base, Stila e/s in Cassia as a wash, Stila e/s in Urchin in crease with a little bit of Stila e/s in Charm dusted over it. MAC seedy pearl to highlight and MAC e/l in Prunella to line.
