Urban Decay Secret Service Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “soft cool brown matte.” It’s a cool-toned, gray-tinged brown with a matte finish. It’s a brown-leaning taupe, but it has a fair amount of brown in it. Wet ‘n’ Wild Desert Festival #3 is slightly darker. MAC Omega is much lighter. Bobbi Brown Hot Stone is darker. Urban Decay Faint is a few shades lighter.

The texture was a little dry, and the resulting color payoff was good but not excellent; when I applied it to the lid with a fluffy crease brush, I had less trouble getting better color payoff, but it did need a second layer of product to really get true-to-pan color.  I wish it had been just a bit denser/more buttery, because it was also somewhat dusty, so it was prone to fading.  There was some noticeable fading of the color when I wore it, though no creasing, starting at the seven hour mark.  With a really fluffy brush, it works well enough, but it took extra work to blend it out if used with a firmer brush (say for applying to the lid, rather than the crease).
