I got this in a free VIB points palette and I've fallen in love with this colour. It's a very deep matte brown with no traces of red. It is, quite simply, fabulous - makes for a daytime wearable smokey eye and works as a soft, shadowy liner as well and, of course, for defining a crease, it is also perfect. I will definitely be purchasing the full size of this. I actually wish I could purchase multiples of the little palette I got as it would be outstanding as stocking stuffers (Christmas is coming) or just to have multiples in various places (purse, gym bag, desk at work, etc.) I'd never have known about or really noticed this shadow had it not been for the lovely little "freebie" palette.
