I've been on a brown eyeshadow collecting kick lately. Everyone complains of the glitter fallout and not translating on the lid....you're using the wrong brush. I use the MAC #239 and apply using a patting motion and not a sweeping motion. I also applied NARS eye primer prior to application. This keeps the glitter intact. When blending into my transition color I use the MAC #217 brush. This makes for a great chocolate smokey eye and I'm so glad I picked this up.

This is a great color, Nars describes it as a rich brown with gold flecks. The gold flecks don't really show up on my skintone, however the color is rich and applies evenly. The color lasted all day on my lids. If you own NARS' Cordura I would skip this color as well as fez because these four colors are very similar.

Ummm, just okay. I drove 25 miles each direction to my closest Sephora store in the snow to purchase this.
Anywho, for me this is just plain ole' brown; the gold sparkles immediately disappear which leaves me with a 'poopy' brownish green color. For the price and drive I wanted the gold sparkle's to sparkle. I did pair it with MAC's Gold Reflect's Glitter for a stunning brown sparkle look which made my husband do a "double-take" and give me a compliment. I hardly ever use this e/s but I do sometimes look at it and wish it looked like this on my lid.

I bought this shadow almost a year ago and never used it until now. I can't believe I let this gorgeous shadow sit in my traincase that long. A beautiful bronze with gold/green microglitter. In some light it almost seems like its multicolored glitter. I wore this on top of a brown paint and it was soooo pretty! The texture is ultra soft. Perfect for a soft smokey eye. Kind of pricey for these singles but they are worth it.

This is a beautiful eyeshadow. Per NARS, it's an intense deep chocolate brown with bits of gold shimmer. I worried about the glitter effect but the glitter is not apparent when I apply it. I use it to overlay on my outer "v" and my crease. I haven't had any fallout and am totally pleased with it.

I LOVE this color. It is so easy to blend and so smooth. It's uber pigmented. I think this is the most pigmented shadow I've ever tried. I love the bit of gold flecks throughout this shadow. It's so beautiful. This is by far my most favorite shadow in my entire makeup collection!
