Vanilla is a light beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a soft, smooth consistency that was a touch powdery in the pan but applied evenly on the lid. It had good pigmentation, which was buildable to opaque coverage with a second layer. This shade lasted for seven and a half hours on me. (This eyeshadow is part of the permanent range.)
