This is a gorgeous rusted terracotta orange- think dusty burnt earth or a desert sunset, and you've pretty much got the essence of this shade. I love to wear it everyday to compliment my other shadows by using it to blend out whatever is in my crease that day- with a very light hand, this imparts a gorgeous warmed finish that really 'finishes' my smokey eye looks. I also love applying it to my lower lash line after watching Lisa Eldridge's Marylin Monroe tutorial to really enlarge my eyes- it's a trick that absolutely works! She used red lipstick in her video but this orange works absolutely beautifully on my medium skin, and I find that it really makes my eyes look whiter and brighter, especially when I apply a very black mascara to my lower lash line- it really helps to frame my lashes and make them look longer and thicker. This is an intense, highly pigmented shade- make no mistake, it's largely and conventionally unwearable on its own, but lightly applied, boy oh boy does it work like magic for your eyes!

NARS describes this shade as a "matte paprika". I would describe this shade as a bright rusted orange. I'm not going to lie MUA, I was interested in this shadow because I am Persian. Its not a shade I would typically go for. I only took off one lippie since this shade is hard to pull off and not wearable for every day. I will not purchase.
