I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE Texture and would give it 10 lippies if I could. I am NC15 in the winter and NC20 in the summer... I thought that this would be too orangey for my taste but I was sooooo wrong. It is a Velvet which means that it applies matte but it has a teeny tiny bit of sparkle (not shimmer) -- which helps it blend sooooo easily. I like to use Texture to buff out the lower lash line, to warm up the crease/transition, applied to the lid for a casual warm daytime look, and many many others. This eyeshadow is so versatile and it has the most amazing texture. Out of the 80 or so MAC eyeshadows I have this would be in my Top 10 most loved for sure! I recommend this to everyone... from the fairest of the fair like myself to the deepest ebony. It is a *MUST HAVE*!!

It's my favourite eye shadow. I use it with white and nude coloured eye shadows and put it on my crease. Just gets the right light cat eye I want. Most of the time, I don't even use a darker colour than this because the more you apply it the darker it gets and becomes more like a night makeup than an everyday makeup. So, I totally love it :)

Really, really loving this e/s lately. I wasn't planning on buying it, went in just to get some Retrospeck, but the MAC girl convinced me to try some of this on, and after seeing it on me I just couldn't leave without it! I'm an NC30-40 depending on the season, right now I'm around an NC30 and am really loving the way Texture goes with my skin. I'm huge on the bronzey-sunkissed eyeshadow looks, so Texture has really won me over. It looks very reddish/orange in the pan, but actually applies like a very rich, warm, medium, almost saddle-type brown. Right now I'm using this in my crease, sculpting all around my eye in a sort of C shape, from the inner crease right around to the lower lashline, with woodwinked on the lid. Another thing I absolutely love is the finish. It's got very tiny flecks of shimmer, they're so subtle it looks almost matte, but the little shimmer particles help prevent it from looking too flat/dry. Texture is a must have for me this Spring/Summer, since it's such a gorgeous, natural, sunny brown colour, but I will definitely find a way to make it work into the Fall. So glad I discovered this! It's a staple in my books now!

Let me start off by saying that I don't wear eye shadow alot, but when I do, I love to sport a more natural look. Texture is the perfect shade for that natural look. I usually just put it in my crease to add some depth to my eye. If I'm going out for the evening, I'll put it on my lid and crease with a bold eyeliner. I would definitely repurchase.

Texture is a warm peach brown of medium darkness. Great color payoff and lasting power. No fall out, do tap off the excess though as with all shadows. Blends easily.
I mostly run to Texture to use as a crease color, but I do imagine it would look lovely as a lid or all over wash of color. It's also close to my skin tone so I use it to neat up an extended outer V.
It's a very warm and sunsetty kindda color...beautiful. The peach tones would bring out blue eyes real nice.
I use this as a crease color with Brun (or any dark brown shade) as a lid color. You can also pair it with purple shadows, they'd go good together. Experiment with it, it's very versatile!
Now I did say I'd buy it again, only because it's a great shadow that does plenty more than it should, however, I did knock one lippie off because it's a shade you can possibly find in other lines and products and can be substituted with a bronzer. I own a Bourjois bronzer (check my review on it, it's the one that comes in a book-like package) and found it to be almost identical to texture. Shame I didn't notice that, this bronzer has been lying around doing nothing since it looked too orangey on me. Well, knowledge comes at a cost :)

My favorite eyeshadow in my entire collection (and I have the naked eye palette, so that's saying something!) It's really hard with my very pale skin to find a neutral eye shadow that would look good going to class or a night out, but this fits the bill. I would describe the color as a coppery soft, light brownish tan with very slight red undertones. This color looks amazing with my blue eyes and almost matches my coppery strawberry blond hair! Staying power/creasing isn't a problem for me, since I use Mac Paint Pot in Painterly underneath.
When I first started using this eyeshadow, I thought it would only be suited for a crease/outer vee color (I thought it might look too intense over the whole lid). It does look fantastic as a crease color- I love to use this in the crease, Mac's Mulch in the outer vee, and something like Urban Decay's naked on the actual lid.
However, I will let you in on a little secret involving application and how I get this product to look best on me. What I do is use Mac's 217 brush and lightly dab some all over the lid- not too much, the 217 is very good at applying a light layer of it. If you don't have the 217, use some sort of eyeshadow fluffy brush or blending brush. Now, take a small pointed crease brush (I use the one in the pair from CVS) and swipe it directly in the crease (I start from around 2/3 in, I don't go all the way in because my eyes are very close to my nose already). Now, take a blending brush, like Sonia Kashuk's tapered one, and lightly blend the color with a skin-tone color, (I use naked from the palette) moving it slightly upward every now and then. If you want to keep deepening the color in the crease, reapply texture with the pointed crease brush and continue blending lightly. This is the eyeshadow that made me realize that I can use one eyeshadow for the lid AND crease by simply going from a fluffy brush to a pointed, more narrow brush!

I love this eyeshadow! I have hazel eyes/NC30 skin tone and on me this colour is a warm brown. It really suits me and makes my eyes look nice! I find it easy to blend, and I just wear it on its own most of the time.

(i) Pigment: a unique red-brown, which provides depth and interest in the creaseline.
(ii) Formula lets it down, though, big time: can run to an unattractive ruddy matte in certain conditions, i.e. without requisite eye prep. of preferred primer.
Bottom line: worth purchasing for pigment alone, but be prepared for high maintenance.

C3/NC20/NC25 here...Too quick to leave a review for an e/s that doesn't work for me and forget to praise the ones that do! I love this one and have to say that it is probably my absolute favorite. I use it most often as an allover lid color. I have to refrain from using this everyday. HG and will most definitely repurchase!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Dark, Warm Hair: Black, Curly, Fine Eyes: Black
This is actually my skin tone but better. It is perfect for correcting or blending out harsh lines. This eyeshadow is a must!
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Dark, Warm Hair: Brown, Kinky, Medium Eyes: Brown
I love this eyeshadow, it gives me a nice polish look along with, half n half with hodgepodge liner and boy bait or nymphette glosses. Perfect orangy, peach brown. Today I paired with soma silk and arena. I know for a fact I will hit pan.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair, Neutral Hair: Red Eyes: Green
Great shadow! I find it super versatile as I can wear it on the lid, in the crease, outer V, or use it as a blending out shadow. The shimmer is very soft and subtle which makes it easy to work with and not fear an overly frosty disco ball look. Texture pairs well with many colours and I like using it to add warmth to an overly cool toned eyeshadow look. I love having this shadow in my collection and have already repurchased.

When I got this in the mail, I immediately thought: "Oh, no! How will I manage to make a brick red colour look good on me?!" While pinks make my eyes look sore, tired or bruised, this totally doesn't! :D This is a really nice colour to use for accentuating green eyes. I imagine it looking the best with dark hair, light-medium skin (neutral or yellow-toned!) and light brown or green eyes, but I think darker skin tones could also look good with this.
The texture of Texture :P is reeeeally good - it's a soft and very well pigmented shadow that is easy to work with and blend. It's possible to wear this as a statement, but I usually don't apply much of it: 3 light swipes across the shadow is enough for one eye. Then it comes out a warm light reddish brown. This has a slight multi-coloured shimmer to it, that doesn't really show up on the eyes, but adds a nice sheen.

I frickin love this color. If I wanna go for a pretty neutral eye, i wear "texture" on the lids, "soft brown" and "charcoal brown" in the crease. It has a slight shimmer to it but its not too sparkly and it gives a nice sheen. Plus this would make a great blending color. Comes out to a peachy/light brown color on my lids. Def would repurchase! :)

I bought texture recently. I have green eyes and usually wear Mac Scene in the crease and electra on my lid and print or nehru on my outer corner. I tried texture and it really makes my eyes pop. It has taken some getting used to for me to wear warm colors, but I love it and will buy again. I used it with woodwinked on the lid and swiss chocolate blended with the texture.

General description: Warm, sheer peached russet brown.
Me: NC15, red hair, green eyes, freckles, 44 years old.
Texture is a more statement making but still soft crease tone. Texture gives a Rodarte Spring 2012 caramel-sepia-light rust sort of look, or something like the Costello Tagliapietra Spring 2012 face. can be applied delicately for a sheer, natural lift of tone (not color per se), or applied more fully for an opaque finish. Described as a satin, has no discernible shimmer or frost on my lids. While Rule is definitely orange on my skin, Texture is a hint of browned down orange that really gives my face a lovely lift. If you have Soft Brown but find it a bit lackluster, try Texture.
Pairs beautifully with Trax, Sketch, olivey greens, browns, blacks and greys, particularly on a warmer skintone.

Another must have crease color to aid in blending. I usually interchange between Texture and Saddle as crease colors.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Dark Hair: Black, Kinky, Fine Eyes: Brown
I love Texture eyeshadow. It's a great color to help blend out your crease colors to soften out the harsh lines. It does have a lot of fall out, but the color is wonderful. Sometimes, I use it in my crease to soften the crease color if I put too much of my crease color in my crease.

I received this in a swap to make up for a mishap that had happened and when I saw it I truly thought I wouldn't be able to make it work. There is a fine line I walk when I wear warmer eyeshadow colors and the effect of disease ridden eyeballs it tends to give me.. but I absolutely LOVE this eyeshadow! The color looks a bit orange-ier than soft brown with a small amount of glitter-but not chunky glitter. More like light shimmer. I have cool, fair skin with blonde hair and blue eyes and I love how natural this eyeshadow looks on me. I usually pair it with brule all over the lid, this in the crease, sometimes mixed with soft brown in the crease, and espresso on the outer corner (maybe grain or naked lunch or brule as a highlight). The way it blends together looks completely natural and perfect for day time wear. This just goes to show you that you shouldn't knock it til you try it! :)

I bought this shadow based off the reviews on here and so glad that I did. While this shadow doesn't match my eyelids (NW25-30 for reference), it does make my blue/green eyes pop beautifully. Like others have mentioned, don't be alarmed by the orangy/brown tones in the shadow. It can be applied with a sheer hand to give your eyelids a pretty, dark peachy sheen, or you can pack it on for a nice brown look. I like pairing this with Romp in the outer V and crease and topping with Blitz & Glitz fluidline for a summery look that makes my eyes pop.
