This looked like purple twinged dirt on my eyes when used in shadow form. Tried using it as an eyeliner and you could barely see it.

FANTASTIC. Makes hazel/brown eyes appear bigger. Works great as a crease color or outer v. Dark but not too dark. Looks wonderful against my skin pale or tan (I can range from NC20-35). I will definitely rebuy once I run out. Can't recommend this shade enough!

I just got this through a swap and love it, I use it for my crease and outer eye on my smokey eye, softer than using carbon and looks nice with my green eyes. It's a really nice plum I agree with the other reviewer great for fall, great for green eyes and works really nice for a not so heavy smokey eye.

i love this color in the crease with a satin cream color! its more interesting than brown i think, but is still very wearable! it makes my green eyes pop and is nice for all year round, but especially in the fall! i think everyone should own this shadow :)

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.
