This was the shade I was missing from my earlier It’s a Strike collection reviews! It had decent pigmentation with a thinner texture that wasn’t too soft or too firm in the pan, but it was a shade that was more buildable than intense right out of the gate. The eyeshadow took some effort to blend out, though it wasn’t the worst I’ve used, and when built up in layers, it was easier to diffuse the edges. It wore well for eight hours on me.

I like this color, looks very versatile! An all-in-one, great for travel —can be combined with other shadows, used as an eyeliner, smudged to make a smoky brown eye, used as brow powder

Yes, I agree! It is a nice neutral color – wish it was a bit better overall, but the color itself is very versatile, as you said!

Meh. I guess because I seem to have dupes galore for this shade across several palettes. It’s a good workhorse type of shade, but boring as heck.

lol! I know, I know. I almost didn’t buy it, because it’s just this one-off at this point, but I had other MAC products to order (Star Trek) so I figured why not!
