Make Up For Ever M518 Nude Artist Color Shadow ($17.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium beige with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The color appeared more neutral, almost cool-toned in the pan, but it went on lighter and warmer on me (I triple checked in person!). The texture was smooth and velvety to the touch without any powderiness or dryness. The previous formula's shade was slightly cooler-toned and darker (more true-to-pan in color) (see side-by-side comparison). This shade wore well for nine and a half hours on me.
