I go between MAC Brule and this for a brow highlight -- this has a bit more sheen to it, but I love it all the same. Goes really well with my NC40 skin tone.

I b2m for this and it is perfection!

Ricepaper has always been a staple in my collection. Especially in the summer -it is amazing to subtly brighten the eye and then throw on a liquid liner.

I wanted a similar neutral shade. I'm around nc20. I had all that glitters and found it a bit orangey-- it looks nice paired with other shadows but I can't pull it off as a single shadow look.

The SA suggested I try naked lunch. It was nice but to be honest-- that amount of high shimmer just doesn't scream "every day" to me. Grain is perfect-- it adds a sheen that just makes my brown eyes glow. It's a little peachy, whereas ricepaper is more yellow. I look awake and just fresh.

Stays on all day with no primer-- this holds up better than some of my other Mac shadows.

I couldn't be happier with this. This is definitely in my top 5 favorite eyeshadows ever

Because, I guess to almost everyone's surprise and shock and delight, MAC has lowered the price on its Pro Pan shadows, I bought a few of the shadows that had been on my "maybe one of these days" list. I actually wanted Ricepaper but they were sold out so I looked through to see what else struck me as pretty and I hit upon Grain. So pretty and probably a lot more flattering on my colouring than the more yellow tones of Ricepaper (which I will still get when they restock). This is one of those shades that looks fresh and natural but is still brightening for my lids and it gives a really pretty and wide-awake look. I would absolutely repurchase this shade and I'm actually feeling a bit lucky that Ricepaper was sold out.

This eye shadow is gorgeous!! The color is really pretty and it stays all day. And I use it to set my under eyes.

Oh my...this is a beautiful eye shadow. I have nc15 skin, hazel eyes and light brown hair and have found many peachy eye shadows to be far too overpowering for my skin. However, Grain is a very subtle yet noticeable mellow peach color that brightens up my eyelids and covers their discoloration. The best thing about it? It stays on ALL DAY. Many other eyeshadows I have tried by the likes of Urban Decay and Estee Lauder are gone or creasing by lunch time. I apply Grain at 7am in the morning and by 10pm at night it still looks so good that I hate having to take it off!

It is also a great blush colour for paler skin tones - so this product has become my HG eyeshadow and for now, HG blusher. I just wish there was more of it in the little pot that it comes in. Never the less I'm so happy with this eyeshadow and will definitely repurchase, thanks MAC!

I can imagine this shade us overlooked but this is my everyday brow bone highlighter. It's subtle yet noticeable. It's great for a soft highlight, a wash of colour and also to blend out other eye shadows. I have some eye shadows that I love but are just too much for the day however with Grain I can use some of the darker shades and blend it out to create a softer look. Will definitely repurchase.

This is my go to lid color for a "no makeup makeup look". It gives enough color and definition without being to over the top. I will definitely be re purchasing this when I run out.

I bought a 4 palette of shadows, as it turns out, a few days short of 4 years ago, which is just too long to keep eyeshadows. My selections were brule, grain, saddle and sketch. Anyway, I did a lot of research before making my purchase, yet somehow just didn't wind up with an especially interesting array of colors, in my opinion. Grain is a nice neutral peachy beige with slight shimmer. I definitely wouldn't purchase it again because the shimmer is not flattering on me..

I am NC15 with light brown eyes. I have tried many times to use Grain and it just doesn't look right on me. It is a slighty peachy satin color. I have to really pack it on to get it to even show up. I imagine this would look better on darker skin than mine.

Very subtle but that's how I like my eyes done. It matches my skin tone yet brightens up my eyes. Not sure if I'll rebuy.
