I don’t know how to describe this cool - kind of a brown/bronze/gold? It’s a chameleon and seems to take on the color of other shadows I pair it with.

I use this a lot - works well with my NC35 skin and builds up beautifully if I want use a heavier hand with it or can be very subtle applied lightly. Love it blended out over lashline and brought up from there to crease for an evening …

I’m confused by the good reviews on this. I have many mac eyeshadows I love, but this is not one of them. My real issue is with the texture. Seems patchy and gritty. I really have to work to build it up, and then if I try to softly smoke it out, it just gets uneven looking. I’ve tried various primers with the same result. Normally I prime with mac’s painterly paint pot and don’t have an issue …Read more

Love this! I would describe it as a cool bronze or a rose brown, satin texture. I have brown eyes, and this is perfect for when I want to do a sultry brown smoky eye! It is important for me that the shadow is not too orange-bronze, as orange hues don't suit me, and that it's not too red - otherwise I can look tired. I also don't want a simple brown or even a greyish-brown because …Read more

I've been using it for years. I love pairing it with Retrospeck in the inner corner and brow bone. Everyone always raves when I wear it. I'm a 25w. With blue eyes. It makes the blue pop. I hope they never discontinue this shade. I love it so much.

Mulch is a reddish brown shade with a rich golden sheen running through it! This along with 'Bronze' are my 'go-to' all over lid colours from MAC that have a permanent place in my MAC daily quad palette. The pigmentation is pretty decent, but it isn't the most buttery eyeshadow I own. The pay-off is very good though. For reference I have brown eyes and a fair yellowy …Read more

Love this. It's a neutral/golden medium/dark brown. When blended into the crease, I don't see much of red and plum that others write about. Antiqued is much more red, and Twinks is a plummy version of Mulch. I love Twinks but think Mulch is more versatile. I use it in the crease, as a lid color, and as an eye liner. Soft shimmer/sheen adds lovely dimension. Nicely pigmented and …Read more

Gorgeous shimmery medium brown which can be layered over a dark matte colour to intensify and bring out the glittery particles. I use this lightly with all that glitters and blanc type for daytime wear also. Looks really nice smudged under the lower lashes for a smokey look. Would definitely repurchase but probably won't need to as a little goes a long way.

Another BIG disappointment for me. Mulch is a mediocre shade in my opinion, a cool-toned, dirty brown with reddy undertones. So unflattering on my dark brown-black eyes and the pigmentation was stiff and hard to work with.

Very good pigmentation, buttery soft (similar to a frost), with just a hint of sparkle that is not gritty at all. The red undertones bring out the green in your eyes!

I already have the Naked eye palette that has a shade very close to this one but it isn't as complex. Against my skin it translate with a slightly red undertone which looks absolutely beautiful paired with MACon "honesty" and "vanilla" pigment. I've even done a smoky eye with this shade and it came out pretty nice. Very impressed with this shade and I definitely …Read more
