SHADE: The moment i saw this shade,i knew i had to buy it.It such a pretty metallic bwown with taupe tones.The shade has subtle golden shimmer that adds glam ot it.



TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER: The texture of the eyeshadow is smooth though it does have fallout which may be primarily due to the presence of shimmer.It has a metallic sheen/effect to it which looks great on lids.


I like how this shade can be used as a neutral brown everyday wear shade or for a smoky look using black.


The finish is metallic as said.

It isn’t highly pigmented but needs 2-3 swipes for full shade on lids.The shimmer present isn’t not gritty .However,a good primer can definitely help in intensifying the shade.


Also,i mostly use this shade dry but it can be used wet as well!!


Staying power is around 6-7 hours which is great.
