Texture is neither smooth nor chalky. I just found it a bit stubborn, you have to keep blending to get a smooth finish and dissolve patches.
Pigmentation is good not great. Girls with dark lids may not see it showing up much. One would have to use an opaque base (maybe MAC paintpots). Even on my lids i had to layer the color a bit. It can be a good option to be used in crease or outer v for blending. You can’t create a smokey look from this shade alone (if you get what i am saying LOL). I didn’t notice any fall outs and it stayed on for long! This shade can be a good option if you want to wear neutral/ natural makeup. A beige matte shade on entire eyelid, Embark on the outer V and crease .. that’s it !
After buying MAC refills i realized that I might have found equally good or better dupes at Inglot. I love Inglot eyeshadows and using them before MAC made me realize that unless its a unique shade you must look for possible dupes available at other stores.
Its not a must have shade in my opinion and you can find similar shades in sleek, MUA palettes (if you own any). Also price can be another con.
A matte brown medium deep shade with red undertones, can be a good choice for crease or blending while creating smokey looks. However wearing it alone wouldn’t do much unless you are wearing it on a dark opaque base. The texture is not very smooth but some strokes of brush and it blends into the skin ! No fall-outs what so ever. It can also work as good eyebrow shade. Also can be used to blend eyeliner/ pencil liner for that subtle smoked out liner looks. I would not repurchase this again and shall let you all know once i spot a possible dupe.
