MAC Deep Damson is a pretty warm burgundy shade, with enough hints of brown to not make me look sick (usually eyeshadows with red in them make me look sick). It's a nice color that I can use all over the lid (and diffused in the crease) as a single-color look, but also to deepen the crease or the outer-v for looks with warm browns, warm mauves (like MAC Haux) or pinks.
Most MAC Matte eyeshadows are stiff in the pan, but the Deep Damson I have is even stiffer. If you don't use it with the `right` brush, it applies patchy and hardly gives any pigmentation. If I use something like a eye shader brush (like MAC 242), I barely get product on the brush. I like it applied with fluffier brushes (like MAC 217, 224) even when I pack it on the lid; I like that this kind of eyeshadow formula gives me a lot of space to play with the pigmentation. Packed on the lid, the shadow looks like a beautiful deep wine/burgundy; diffused it looks more like a mauve with hints of wine.
The eyeshadow is so stiff that it doesn't have any fallout.
I always use eyeshadow primer set with powder, never had issue with this eyeshadow creasing.
