This shade is a great base colour for 'natural' look eye makeup. It isn't shimmery, but gives an even cream-coloured coverage on pale skins. I agree with some reviewers that it can be a little chalky, but it still blends in well. It can also be used as a brow highlighter when applied against other colours. For me this is a 'go to' everyday base shadow for office makeup. The only disadvantage is that for me it's a bit too pale and sheer to wear on its own as a single colour, though this might not be the case on darker skin tones.

I really like Orb. I have a few MAC highlighters, but I find myself reaching for Orb quite often right now. Much more than Vanilla which surprised me. I got the pro pallet refill so the price was right at $8 CDN. I usually pair it with Soft Brown in the crease/transition and then use Print to deepen the crease and outer V. Then I blend. I place Telephone Number kohl on the top lash line, then Print over it and Soft Brown on lower lash line with a light hand. It's quite quick to do and it's such a nice subtle daytime look on me.

This is a peachy ivory hue that is useful for base and highlight. It subtly enhances blue eyes but looks nice against all skin tones and eye colors. I used up several pans of this over the years. It is one of MAC's Satins. It's been in the line since the nineties. They divide their shadows into different textures. Some of the Satins are overtly shimmery but Orb could easily be mistaken for a Matte as there is no frost or glitter to it. It's a basic shade that may not be as exciting as some of the brand's more wild colors, but this is one that gets used up. It blends easily and softens other shadows. I love the MAC single shadow packaging with the window in the flip top lid. It's easy to see which color you've picked up before you open the case. My only complaint is that MAC isn't cruelty free.

For reference, I'm pretty pale. This was not very pigmented or creamy. It was dry, applied sheerly so it really had to be built up, and the color just looked like I had put my face powder on my lids. I returned this (love MAC's return policy).

I use it every day. Just brightens up the eye and makes me look fresher. Stays all day too.

This color has a great undertone that helps neutralize the red/purple that some people may have on their eyelids. Since eye primers tend to sting my sensitive skin, thus needing to be avoided, I rely on this color to help create a neutral color across my lids. Works like a charm :)

This is one of my oldest M•A•C shadows, and I used to use it often as an all over color that made all my other colors more blendable. Unfortunately, I've since found that other similar shadows (like Makeup Geek Vanilla Bean) were creamier and faster to apply so I've left off this one for a while. It's still my go-to for a cooler neutral eye since Vanilla Bean is much warmer, but I have yet to perfect the application for Orb in such a way that I don't have to go over several times. Pros: * good for all over wash to increase blendability of other colors placed on top* great for a cool-toned neutral eye* long-lasting* fits well in many palettes (I purchased the standalone pan)Cons: * a bit dry* very sheer; color pay-off is not as great as other M•A•C shadows

Use this or brule under my eyeshadow almost every day. This is peachier than brule for more warmer looks. Love it!

Orb is a matte, very light beigey-vanilla color. This is my favorite to wear as a base underneath my eye shadows. Goes on very easy and smooth. Perfect for smokey eyes. I also use this to hi-light under my brows for a nice subtle clean look. I love it! Will re-purchase.AC3.

This is a MAC eyeshadow that grew on me quite a bit.After I first got it I went home expecting the perfect brow bone highlight shade. Unfortunately, this shadow is quite sheer and doesn't show up very well on my NW15-20ish skin. I was disappointed and annoyed I had bought so sheer an eyeshadow so it floated to the bottom of my makeup bag not to be used or seen again for several months. I came back to it again after while and realized that it does have some good uses! On days when I don't want to wear a bunch of different shadows I put on a little bit of my UD primer potion and some of this and it evens out my lids and makes me ooh a little more awake! I also like it for if I'm in a pinch I can use a fluffy brush and set my under eye concealer with it! It also makes a good blending shade to help transition darker shadows into my actual skin tone.So even though it may not be a WOW color, it does have it's uses and I like it quite a bit! But I think next time I'll do some more research and get something with more pigment.I have this in a 4 pallet with: phloof!, bronze, and satin taupe (all of which I have also reviewed!)
