This is not as white or frosty as Phloof! and def not as intense as Nylon. I love how discrete Ricepaper is. I can put this anywhere and not feel over the top. Ive tried Nylon and felt it was way too bright and stark. Phloof! was very pretty pinky fairy-like but still a bit loud for daytime wear. I gotten Ricepaper and now i can say ive offcially stopped searching for my perfect highlight. Its a …Read more

MAC has been d/c left and right. I periodically check mac website for no reason other than to make sure they are still carrying this national treasure.

This is my ALL TIME favorite eyeshadow!!! I will love it til the end of times.

I'm nc20, neutralish. Love this in the lid, as an inner corner highlight, under the brow. Wear it alone, wear it to warm up a look …

I think everything about this shade has already been said i.e. yellowish-gold-ivory. I'm NC20 skin tone. I find this shade to be very subtle and I needed multiple layers (i.e. it has poor pigmentation compared to other Mac e/s in my collection). It also feels quite stiff. I do think for someone with my skintone, this is great as a highlighter or as a subtle wash over the lids.

This shadow was once a staple in my collection but has since been replaced by a more pigmented shadow of the same colour family Nylon. Rice paper is a light yellow-cream colour with a frost sheen. On application is much sheerer than Nylon. It's a pretty ethereal colour, excellent as a highlight shadow. It's a good starter colour.

Another favorite MAC eyeshadow of mine apart from Soba - I love this for almost the same reasons. It is the perfect eye brightener on me. I adore Ricepaper all over my lids for a crisp eye, it makes me look so awake. On me it goes almost a gleaming gold that's very subtle yet opens up my hooded eyes. Top with liner and mascara and I am good to go. Otherwise I use it as my base color for all …Read more

There's nothing really wrong with Ricepaper but, on the "Exciting Highlighter Scale", it barely registers a blip.

I really only purchased this shadow because MAC lowered the prices on their Pro Pans (my preferred "format" anyway). I'd known of Ricepaper's existence since I first got into makeup but I had quite a collection of highlighters that I …

Best highlight colour for my nc20 skin. Not too in your face but still noticeable.
One of Mac's best eyeshadow, I reckon.

Ricepaper is the PERFECT highlight for my skin tone! Because my skin has yellow undertones, the yellow hue in Ricepaper just blends in with my skin and adds a SLIGHT glow to my inner corner and brow bone, and doesnt look like a highlight at first glance. For reference I have over the years tried Shroom, White Frost, Phloof!, and Nylon, but this is by far the best because it doesn't pull …Read more

I have deep set eyes, and I use this on my lid and in the inner corner of my eye. It's a gorgeous colour against my NC30 skin (almost like a 'my skin but better' look - a light golden champaign colour). I do have to apply 2+ layers of it though as it's not extremely pigmented. But once I've layered it (and used primer underneath), it stays on a long time.
