Patina looks like a muted ashy sandy khaki gold grey with a sheen/shimmer that glimmer pink in certain lighting... its very unique but also boring as some will say. It is buttery smooth in textures and blends very well with a darker color like satin taupe. The darker brown makes patina look more alive and less washed out/less grey. I was pairing patina and omega in the crease …

I was searching for a dupe of a an eyeshadow which I had in a 3-shade Palette from Beyu which I bought around 2007.
I tried do describe the shade and was clueless how to capture it. I thought it was kind of greyish but in a warm way but also not really brown. Without a comparison I would have sworn it´s more grey... Arrgh.
So I tossed the Palette in my purse and set out to the Mac …

I love Patina. It's a very unique color, a sheer-ish brown/grey/gold with shimmer that somehow pulls no weird tones from my olive skin and dark eyes like many golds. When I'm tan, it's almost the same color as my skin. What Patina does is add a cat-like, burnished sheen to your lids. It's one of the most sexy-but-not-obviously-so makeup items I own. My preferred way to wear it …Read more

I recently got this to add to my pro palette. I always put it off thinking it was too similar to satin taupe (looks almost the same in pan) and sable ( I thought it was slightly darker version of satin taupe/patina.) I would glance over thinking it, was just another taupe. I WAS WRONG.
It's so beautiful when swatched, it's a golden taupe that's neutral leaning slightly warm …

Patina is the best eyeshadow color I have ever seen.
I find extremely difficult to find a shade of gold that suits me, as most of them look extremely warm and very unflattering. I have warm toned brown eyes and a neutral skin undertone, but I can not pull off golds on my eyelids as i would like to.I find that nowadays everyone uses gold eyeshadow to achieve the glam look that is always on …

To be honest, I wanted to love Patina based on the rave reviews I read everywhere. When I swatched it on my hand, I was awed by the color, an almost antiqued gold. It was so beautiful. Then I put it on my lids and somehow it looks grey-ish on me? It could be my inexperience in putting eyeshadows that I still am not sure how to wear Patina to demonstrate how beautiful it is on my eyes but so far …Read more

I'm a little bit disappointed with this shadow. It got a lot of love online but I'm very underwhelmed. It's not very pigmented and I really need to pack it on to get any colour at all. Even then it's a boring light sludge colour. I'm not getting the golden warmth that's been peddled online. I've been pairing it with satin taupe (not there's an eyeshadow …Read more

I do not know what is wrong with me: everybody loves this eyeshadow and it looks hideous on me! To start with, the color payoff is terrible, it is barely noticeable (I am NW 15) so I use a paintpot as a base to make it show up a little more. On my lids is a light golden shadow that makes me look sick if that makes sense. It is not brown and certainly is not taupe at all. I hate this color, my …Read more

Beautiful light brown color! I love the little sparkles/shimmers in it, normally shimmer looks terrible on my hooded eyes but this doesn't:) I pair it with Mulch and Black tied and it looks amazing. This is one of my first MAC shadows, I just bought them 2 days ago and they're already my favorite.
