My Vanilla was creamy, smooth, and pigmented. I purchased both this and Blanc Type, and when I saw how similar they looked on the eye, I preferred Blanc Type. In comparison, Blanc Type is more pigmented and creamier. Vanilla is slightly whiter with very subtle pink undertones. Blanc Type was not as stark and the slightly more golden undertones made it more flattering on me. However, Vanilla is …Read more

For reference, I'm very pale, but my eyelids are dark. This color did not show up on my lids even with attempts to build the color. Patina is better for me when I want a taupe with a golden sheen.

This color is not very well pigmented and is very dry. The plum/brown/gray color is very pretty and unique. Similar to Haux, but I MUCH prefer Haux (creamier texture, better pigmentation, nice Satin finish, and the slightly rosier color is more flattering on me). While Haux makes me look awake, Quarry has a bit more purple/grey which makes me look more tired.

Gorgeous transition color that adds some subtle warmth (warmer than Omega, cooler than Soft Brown, lighter than Cork). Great for blending and transition.

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).

This is wonderfully pigmented and smooth and far superior to Carbon in terms of pigmentation and blending in my opinion. While it is considered a very dark grey, it registers almost black when applied. The reason I give it 3 lippies is because I developed an allergic reaction (I have no reaction to Carbon, but am allergic to Urban Decay's matte black shade). However, if you're not …Read more

I bought this hoping I could use it as both a brow filler and crease color. It was a bit too warm for my very cool brows. It's a nice, staple color to use in the crease, but I had difficulty blending it. I returned this and got Concrete for my brows (similar in depth, but cooler) and Cork as a medium golden brown crease color (it's a bit lighter and more golden brown than Espresso, so …Read more

Another reviewer hit the nail on the head when they said this color brings flashbacks to high school makeup days. I bought it because I had a very light lavender eye shadow in the past that really made my brown eyes pop and look awake (I think that previous shadow had a pinch more pink in it to make it a little more wearable on me). It's a very light (almost white), cool blue-based purple …Read more

If you want an intense highlight, this is the eyeshadow for you! Intense frosty shimmer in a creamy base. It looks yellow in the pot, but on the eye, it's just a warm white. I really liked it as an inner corner highlight because it shows up really well just lightly touching the brush to the inner corner. It was too intense for my brow bone highlight. It was much too frosty for my liking to …Read more

I found this at a CCO and decided to try it as it seemed so unique. It's maybe too unique - it just doesn't work for me. In some lighting, all I see is the very warm yellow/golden/peach base color, and then in other lighting, all I can see is a VERY icy iridescent cool pink. Maybe it's the control freak in me, but I guess duochrome like that isn't for me - I want control over …Read more
