Exclusive Event is described as a “taupe brown [with a Satin finish].” It’s a light-medium, cool-toned brown with hints of gray and a subtle sheen. It had opaque color coverage, was lightly creamy, and fairly easy to apply for an even, smooth result. It wore well for four and a half hours, and it was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Nude (LE, $15.00) is much darker, browner, and rosier. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Sebastian (P, $18.00) is grayer, cooler-toned. MAC Naturally Eccentric (LE, $15.00) is lighter. MAC Growing Trend (LE, $15.00) is a touch lighter. See comparison swatches.
