Era was one of my first mac products as I was given this as a gift when I first started out into makeup-land. I'm asian with fairly pale skin(don't know my mac colour,sorry) and I quite like this colour. This is exactly like how the other reviewers describe: a soft,tea with milk colour that has a satin finish.It's nicely pigmented,soft and veeery versatile. This can be used to help create more depth beneath stronger, more visible shadows or can be used as a subtle crease colour for a conservative/day look. This is warm colour but its not too warm so I think this would suit most people. I would definitely recommend this as a good neutral colour to buy for anyone.

This is one of my favorite eyeshadows. It's a perfect everyday neutral color. It's a very pretty light brown with slight shimmer. I wear this on my lid and blended into the crease for an everyday look and it looks very nice!

Era a lovely soft sandy/golden beige eyeshadow with its amazing and my favorite satin formula looks absolutely stunning paired with Soba and Brule. Era works on my fair/cool skin, I usually use Soba all over the lid and Brule for the brow bone, then I gently swipe Era using the 224 brush over Brule. It gives me a soft warm glow to my eyes. Its one of those eyeshadows that will work on fair women who have to be careful with "neutrals" due to the muddy effect. Era also look great with Shroom as well as Kid. Another great eyeshadow from Mac.

i love era; it is easily becoming one of my favorite mac shadows. it might even tie. my favorite mac shadow of all time is patina. i have bluegreen eyes, blonde hair and NW20 skin. i disagree with everyone on here about how to wear era-and its not perfect for only a day look. its perfect for a smoky eye..
i wear era over TFSI packed heavily on the lid with a 239; i put it on the lower lash line with a 219 and to blend it all out i use a little bit of era to blend with a 217. i then use MUFE smoky lash. on the face, i use a matte bronzer(hoola) to contour and then mac HUE (FAVORITE LIPSTICK! EVER) with chanel rouge pur confidence lipgloss over that, sometimes i highlight my cheeks. era is the perfect eyeshadow, a meduim brown that can blend other colors or be used as described. ill definitely repurchase with no questions asked.

Great neutral eyeshadow! The colour is very pretty, a champagne beige with soft shimmer. Very smooth and satiny finish that blends with ease. Love to wear it either on the lid or as a blending out colour for the upper crease.

This was recommended to me by a MAC Make-up Artist a few months ago, because I wanted an eyeshadow that I could just slap on in a hurry and would also bring out my blue eyes as well as being sophisticated enough for an office environment. And this is what he recommended. It definately has become one of my favorite eyeshadows, it has a sheen to it which is subtle. I use it mostly alone on the lid with a fine line of Blacktied along my Toplashes. A great color for everday. Would definately recommend it.

This eyeshadow barely shows up. You might be able to use this as a base color/all over lid and then create a sculpted eye look. I wouldn't recommend this shade though, I'd go for something more shimmery, fully matte, or a little lighter.

I love this eyeshadow....its great all over the lid; in the crease on a light eyeshadow days; as a blending colour...Not too shimmery, not matte-just right!!! looove it

First off, I have to say the the color in the picture at the top of this review is off. It looks to be more of a peachy color in the picture, which Era is NOT. Era is a sheer brownish color (tea with milk describes it nicely). It's the PERFECT neutral for us "more mature" ladies who don't want shimmer and sparkles on our eyelids. Truly worth every penny! I use Era all over the lid and if I want to darken up the outside corners/crease a bit, I top off with Soba.

I have had Era in my ES palettes for forever.. and I had rarely used it because I always used my Brule or Shroom.. until I decided that enough of replacing the Es I kept hitting pan on and that I would use this one equally.. well, I have been so impressed by the little ES that it is now in danger of hitting pan..lol.
it is a great neutral ES for most skin colors -- I use it on the lid but it could be used on lids or under brows for highlite.. as well as a tiny dab in the corners for more hilite or on the top of browbones for a touch of brightness and light..
in short.. it is one of those almost perfect products that everyone should have.
