Wonderful eyeshadow, I love it! since vanilla doesn't really work for me, neither does naked lunch. This one has quite a bit of peach, which looked too dark in the store but ended up being just perfect!
one upon a time when i just started with mac makeup, i was crazy about bronze colours and than i got very bored with all the bronzy and metallic browns. it was just about the time i realized that many many companies carry similar colours, like NYX for example... I now I do not use it much and if I could I would buy the NYX because it is cheaper and just as good. I give it 4/5 because it is a good shadow.
I should wear it more often because it is so good. especially good if u have green/hazel eyes. I love to use it with carbon, bronze or as a crease color to create a fiery smokey look or smoke-out a black eyeshadow...i think it will look good with MAC Humid e/s too
amazing colour for smokey eye, has the payback of a brown and a green. great over green, brown and black bases to bring out various parts of the shade. very sophisticated looks... I like to put it all over lid and smoke it out with Cork in the crease, w/out a brow highlight... it creates a nice elegant/dirty smokey eye...
I love the smell, the color is just perfect and the formula is w-o-w my favorite mac lipgloss by far. will buy again and again...
Good matte black but needs effort to work it in. I saw NYX black at the store the other day and I gotta say I think it is much better and cheaper, but hey, if you have this one, use it up, no need to throw it away.
I agree with all the reviews, a very nice versatile color. I give it a 5 because it deserves it, although I like rice-paper much more, it is easy to overdue with nylon on my bid eyes and look a little too shimmery (which I try to avoid because of my oily skin)

my "go to" highlight shadow. very elegant and gives a nice radiance. this is my substitution to MAC rice-paper and the only reason i use it more is because I prefer the packaging over MAC's. anyhow, it is also nice as a highlighter, just don't go overboard since it is quite pigmented. I wonder why so little reviews of it here, it is really a great eyeshadow
I am also an NC35 and it was too frosty-pinky for me and not as "neutral" as one would think. MAC Rice Paper worked SO MUCH better for me. gave it to my NW25 mother and it worked well on her.
I bought this pot about 1.5 years ago and used it about 5-10 times. It's not that it is bad, it's just that I use the black gel liner for the same purpose and I think it comes out better. I use the groundwork one when I need a dark base for my outer corner... I am not sure what else I can use it for without my under-eye circles looking awfully dark. After reading the reviews here I would try to use it a few more time, maybe I would like it more.
Great to organize looks and shades that go together well. Helps me not to get overwhelmed with all the e/s I bought and keep colors that go together - together.
Great substitution for the black on the waterline, great as invisible eyeliner and very nice on day2day use when you don't want anything too harsh. I prefer this one over the browns i've been using for years.
The only problem with the product is the price - but a little goes a long way. It would also be nice if it was pressed, so i can take it with me. I bought the matte FX in fair and medium with an intention to take it everywhere i go, but i end up forgetting and only using this loose powder in the morning. It does wonders! sets my MUFE foundation so well, even better than the HD loose powder, which I also own. Like I said, the only problem is the ridiculous price the FX come in. Although, like I said, it will probably last me forever.
I got after I heard that the salmon color corrects under-eye circles. I used it on it's own and got mixed results. at worse, it was too cakey, as best it was not enough. Than I watched some youtube tutorials and spoke to a few artists and made this one work perfectly. here are the steps i am taking: 1. use a fluffy brush 2. apply the corrector on a clean, unprimed, skin - do not use foundation or it will look like too much 3. apply a concealer on top (color as close as possible to your skin) 4. do not put foundation on it, just set with with any light powder - a bit would do and voila! it will be magic, I promise. I know that Bobbi Brown has a good substitution that also does the job described above, however, it costs much more and lasts less. in general, on of the only things that worked on my puppy, under-eye circles.
I love to have a matte base and this one is perfect. I really love it more than UDPP because it has a nice creamy finish and it make for a flawless base. I have allergies and it was a lifesaver when priming my inflamed lid. I just love this one, aaand, it could also be used as an all over shadow with a medium-brown in the V. Highly recommended if you like that classy matte look. Oh, almost forgot: I really think it makes colors look better on me.
