MAC Vanilla is a slightly warm-toned, very light beige with a satin finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $17.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
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.)

These saturated shadows in neutral and metallic shades and multiple finishes stay on all day long with non-creasing, eight-hour wear. The result: potent colour payoff that applies evenly, blends well and can be used wet or dry.
