This is just one of those shades that I rarely ever use. I'm not too keen on the color and the only reason I bought it was to have it for those "playing around with makeup" moments
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Medium Brown Hair: Brown, Curly, Medium Eyes: Brown
Nice shade that I use as my transitional shade and crease shade. It compliments my NC44 skin tone really well. I use this shade almost daily.

I use this on my crease and outer corner to create a brown smokey eye look for daytime. I picked this color out and the girl picked out the rest of the smokey brown colors that would suit me. It's subtle but also makes a huge difference. This has to be one of my favorite shades. I wear this along with Brule, Handwritten, and Bamboo.

I really don't like this color it looks orange

i bought this through my friend sight unseen and totally hated it when i first set my eyes on it. it just looked so orange or warm in the pan. so with out giving it a try i put it in my swap list. i remember seeing a beautiful fotd of someone wearing this on their crease so i took it off my swap list for a long time and forgot all about it. (i didn't realize i had forgotten to take it off my swaplist tho) but when someone paged me asking me if i'd like to swap for this...i remembered it and took it out and wore it today for the first time. thank goodness it didn't look orange on my nc25 lids! it's just a perfect crease color for me. i put mulch on my lids, this on the crease and ricepaper to highlight under my brows. loved the look. i agree w/ the reviewer below...it's a grea crease color..well for me anyways (nc25).

This is hands down my favorite eye shadow. I have brownish/hazel eyes, fair skin and highlighted blond hair. I always get compliments on my makeup when I wear it, and it's such a basic color that I can wear to work everyday. Don't be fooled by the boring looking color in the pan, it really goes on great! However, I can see the burnt peach color not looking good on everyone, perhaps on people with olive skin, for example.

I'm C4 and used texture because my sister bought it and i thought it was a very pretty color (and it is) but not on me. It showed up as really orange on me. Maybe at the end of summer i might try it again (because i'll be more tan) but in the meantime, I wont be using it.

I use this as my crease color underneath almost everything else. Unless I'm worried about it messing with the shade or something, it is on my eyes everyday. Its about two shades darker than my skin tone, and it has an orangey tint. I've never used it alone, but it would be perfect for just a neutral look. It makes my eyes look bluer even if nothing else is on my eyes with it.

this is a really nice color. the lasting power is great and it blends very well. i will repurchase once i run out. it's a little bit orange on me sometimes so i like to blend it with something else.

Texture looked odd in MACís display, but on me its natural looking. Its exactly the same color as my favorite pantyhose. Its kind of plain--no pearl or sparkles (and satin-y in a good way even though its a velvet), it looks the same on as it does in the pan, and it stays where you put it. In some lights there is just a hint of a coppery pink, which Im okay with--makeup tends to go pink on me. In three swipes you can get Texture to go from just a hint of color, to the true color it is in the pan. Sweet. But take care if you are very fair and/or have no yellow undertones in your skin--this might look orangey to you.

Wanting to stray away from my beigy browns I noticed this color. It looks like a peachy clay color, still natural looking but more warmth than Soba. I works wonderful as natural lid color on me. Normally I wear it alone, but a few times I blended it with Antiqued on the outer edge of the lid and crease. For reference NC 45.

This would be my favorite beauty product of alllllllllllllllllllllllllll time!!!
i love this shadow so much, it has a very smooth , soft texture, and applies great. i usually use a blending/crease brush and apply it in the crease. I drag it out and blend it down under my lower lash line as well for a smokey look..
i wear this with every eye shadow look i give myself.

At first I wasn't drawn to this color AT ALL. Then the friendly MAC girl put it on in my crease along with Shroom and Print on my lids. I'm telling you, I was ready to go to a club on a Tuesday night! I like this color for it's subtlety but it does wonders for the crease. (I'm an NC 35 however I think it would look just as good, if not better, on someone lighter or darker than my skin tone!)

I love the bronze-y "I just got back from the carribean" look but I didn't get it with this color. On my NC40 skin, it looked like a wash of an orange-based brown which was pretty (it made me look grown up) but I had to dot some Amber Lights over it to make it work for me. I don't know, I guess I crave shimmer. I wouldn't repurchase this again. I already have too many bronze colors.

NC45 African American with red and green undertones. I so wanted this to work. It was darker than Soft Brown for crying out loud, and it showed up as nothing on my skin, no matter how much I piled it on! Soft Brown had more color payout than Texture. I honestly think it is the formulation (velvet or satin). Had to return (although it makes a pretty blush), and got Soft Brown instead.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination Hair: Black Eyes: Black
I am NC-44 for the reference. it is soft peachy browny bronzy everyday colour.beautiful texture. You can never go wrong with this one.

I'm new to MAC but had heard so many positive things about the brand I finally checked it. I got this shadow on my 2nd trip to the counter in 1 week. Very pretty shadow...in the pan looks kind of like a rust color. It really didn't catch my eye just from looking at to be honest but after trying a bit on my hand I was suprised how pretty it was. Great shade of brown, not boring or blah at all. For reference, I have pretty fair coloring (N5), reddish brown hair, and brown eyes. It looks awesome on. Will definitely repurchase.

I've had this sitting in my stash for who knows how long. I don't even rememember buying it and I didn't even know I owned it which is a shame because this is a really nice colour. I paired it with Coco pigment today and it created a nice neutral look. It's a brown but not quite traditional brown, kind of reminds me of milk chocolate with shimmer. I would buy it again because there are so many different ways to use it and so many colours to pair it with.

After playing around with neutral and natural looks this spring, I have concluded that I prefer to frame my very dark eyes in slightly deeper and warmer colors than are usually employed, in order to give them that "melting" quality. Washes of pale, true neutral colors just makes them look flat and boring. "Texture" is perfect for giving me a bit of "oomph" without being too dramatic or unnatural.
Texture is a decidedly warm "neutral"; it's sort of an orangey light brown or tan with a matte finish, or a burnt peach. (There are a few random silver sparkles in the pan, but those don't really show up on the skin.) That sounds like it'd be awful and muddy, but actually, if you have the right skintone, it is quite flattering. It's softer than a true brown and perfect in the crease with a true tan, beige, peachy or champagne lid color. I am NC-25ish and have yellow undertones, and dark eyes and hair, and this is a great color for me (but I don't think that pink-toned people will like this color very much). It's not too dark for me (though I use a light hand and blend well), blends beautifully and works well on the lid or crease--an instant staple!

thought it'd work w/ my blue/grey eyes, but it's way too muddy... it just got darker and muddier as the day progressed and was really unflattering... this is a very unnatural color that may look good if you're going out at night, but is not for daytime wear...
