In my love affair with Era, I went through several pans. Now, I have one left, but haven't used it forever. I've just moved on and found better (for me) medium brownish colors for my lid color. Very close to Soba as noted in other reviews. This one has quite a bit more pink to it than Soba. As with Soba, some sparkle, but not enough to make it unwearable on "mature" lids.

Update: I must have been insane the day I wrote this review. What had I seen in this color? It's a blah putty color that isn't very attractive on me. Unless I had dark or olive skin (and I don't - I'm dark-haired, but quite fair) I don't see how this can work for me. Took away all my lippies.
Where have you been all my life?? I LOVE this color. I only just started wearing shadows, and I don't like heavy looks. I have dramatic features, so when I wear eye makeup, it's just too much. I just like to "accent" and be subtle. This is gorgeous, though I realized this morning, I'd rather where it on my lid - straight - with no paint (I usually use ochre) because it's a "satin" and it's creamy. So it's sheer and gives a nice sheen. This with haux or charcoal brown in the crease is just a really nice everyday look.
Still searching for an even nice crease color...

I hate this color. This looks just like my eyelid color when I 1st wake up in the morning~gross and drab. I've had it for about 3 years and have tried to make it work a couple of times, but I always hate how it looks.

really good basic natural warm brown color..a more accurate description of what this looks on MY lids is a darker beige tone, basically my lids but better. very pretty as a nice light wash on the lid. good quality as I'd expect from mac

Era is such a great neutral that I keep on coming back to time and time again. It's only a shade or two darker than my skin colour and I use it either on the lid with darker colours like Mulch in the outer corner or as a crease colour to tone down vivid shades and lusterous finishes. A very versatile eyeshadow!

This is a sophisticated color for the lids It's just a couple shades darker than my pale, yellow toned skin. I used this as an all over lid color with Texture in the outer corners and Kid in the crease. That combo is a fail safe for me. Just add eyeliner and mascara! It blends beautifully. I love it even better than Soba which has a bit more yellow in it.

When I saw this color, I knew I had to get it. This color works great on days when I want to go for a lighter look. This color really opens up my eyes. I think this color goes great with shroom and brule.

Era is a great shadow for those looking for a subtle, sophisticated look. When swept all over the lid and into the crease with a dash of a darker (golden) brown to provide a bit of contrast, this shadow really delivers. I also must mention that I've absolutely fallen in LOVE with the texture of this shadow, which is aptly put into the "Satin" category; it's just so silky to apply! It's a real treat for the eyes, both for yours and for your admirers ;D

Described by MAC as a 'soft muted golden beige with subtle shimmer' it's easy to overlook this shadow for more assertive golden beiges. But IMO it's the perfect colour to pull together any warm-toned combination. The shimmer is certainly subtle, just enough to prevent any flatness on the skin, and the texture is blendable and silky.
It's lovely used as a wash, perhaps with Soba in the crease, black tightlining and lashings of black mascara for a effortless and polished look.

Era wins a special kind of distinction in my book because it is the ONLY eyeshadow I have ever hit pan on in my nearly 17 years of wearing eyeshadow. What can I say? I have a big collection and I'm fickle!
Some might call this ho-hum but it is the perfect base shade for me. Love the texture. It's not flat and matte but shimmer isn't noticeable either. Satin. How apt. This is a neutral nude that's 1.5 shades darker than my natural lid. I find myself using this practically every day with all sorts of different colors--browns, grays, plums, purples, burgundys, greens, etc. It blends easily and plays well with others.
I know I've found a rare and treasured staple for me and plan on re-purchasing (how exciting to actually re-purchase something!) for as long as MAC deems it permanent collection worthy. And I hope that is a long, long time. 5 lips no question.
