This is one of the few MAC eye shadows I have used that does not apply or blend well at all. Sketch is a burgandy color that looks exactly the same color as wine once on my eye lids. It is a rich color but truthfully it doesn't really compliment my skintone and makes me look very pale. I only use it along the lashline as a liner or very very lightly in the crease blended with other colors. I kind of regret buying sketch because I hardly ever use it and when I do I remember how hard it is to blend. For some reason this color always migrates on me as well even with a primer so I don't really like that either. Compared to the rest of my MAC eye shadows and their good quality this doesn't really compare and is a total fail in my opinion. Try this out on your eye lids before purchasing.

One of my favorite MAC eyeshadows!!! This really lights up my brown eyes. It looks great in the outer corner (I usually pair it with UD Roach, MAC tempting, or NARS Fez). It looks AMAZING as a smokey eye. This is the only smokey eye that my boyfriend actually complimented me on. Without me prompting him might I add. I don't love the texture of this e/s as it's a little hard to blend, and I really have to pack it on to get the color payoff I want. In the end it is absolutely worth it though!! Would repurchase!

Reviewing this b/c I'm finally taking advantage of MAC's recycling program after all these years... and this is one that's going back. There have been many, many reviews on this, so all I'll say is that unless you generally know that plummy brown eye shadows work on you, try this one out on your eyelids -- not just your hand, and don't let the MA tell you how wonderful this is etc. Try it on yourself. Plus texture a bit hard to blend too. Needless to say, this didn't work for my skin tone (makes me look tired and bruised), and I now know to stay away from dark plummy brown for my lids (I could have kept this and used as a liner, but not really worth it).

While it is a bit tough to blend, the dark wine color really brings out my green eyes. I like the shade and would probably repurchase. It is BEAUTIFUL as a liner.

I hate this shadow! It was one of the first shades of MAC shadows I bought because of all the great reviews, but I was sorely disappointed with it. Mainly I found that the payoff was not good and that it required more work to blend than my other MAC shadows. When I did manage to blend it out, I just ended up looking like I had been punched in the eyes- not a cute look! lol So I swapped it and am glad to be rid of it. I love fig 1 from MAC which is a mid-to-deep-tone shade of purple with a matte2 finish- it's a dream to blend, adds beautiful dimension and does everything I had originally hoped sketch would do but didn't.

This was one of two of my first MAC shadows and at first I was disappointed that I got 'suckered' into buying purple, as I already own a lot of purple shadows because I like it on my hazel eyes and wanted something different. Anyways, I love Sketch. I use it all the time to deepen my crease/outer-V and it just adds a really nice dimension. A little goes a very long way, and as long as you use a soft hand, there is no trouble with blending.

This was the first MAC eyeshadow I ever owned, and to this day it's still my favorite. I have very dark features so it looks really nice on me. It's very highly pigmented and it stays on all day. You only need a tiny bit to get quite a bit of color. One of these shadows lasts me YEARS of wearing it several times a week. Definitely a must have for me.

I use this to line my eyes and int the crease. It will drag a bit so be sure to use a pale shade all over the lid so that Sketch will blend better. It works great with Trax and Malt on the lid. I use Yogurt or Blanc Type on the brow.
The color is very pigmented and it can look more burgundy or brownish depending on the other shadows you use with it.
Great color with my yellow/green eyes.

I love Sketch! It was my first MAC eyeshadow and it is a perfect burgundy plum shade. It looks lovely in the crease with other eyeshadows but sometimes I wear Bare Study Paint Pot underneath, with Sketch all over the lid, and it looks gorgeous! Definitely re-purchasing when it's finished.

I LOVE this eyeshadow. I use it as a liner with a wet brush and also as a crease colour. It's the perfect rusty wine colour.
