It swatches alright, but it's got poor pigmentation and it's really hard to get it to show up.

Perfect light ash brown for filling in my brows and also a nice crease shade for both cool toned and neutral looks. It's pleasantly pigmented which is a wonderful change for me when it comes to shades like this from other brands.

I use this in most of my looks because its a great crease shade. Unfortunately it's a little patchy, but gets the job done! It requires a little extra blending, but nothing I can't handle!

I am obsessed with using voltage for my inner corner highlight, so I was hoping this would be a good one for my purple looks. Unfortunately it is very sheer instead of glowing to the makeup gods like I want!!

Blushing pink shade for the eyes? Yes, please. My green eyes very much appreciate this color. It's a great crease shade to wear under many looks. Perfect for everyday wear or to bring a coloful shimmer look together!

Probably the most beautiful shadow I've ever come across. I only wish it was a little more pigmented, but it's very buildable! I use it almost every time I do my makeup.

I was hoping it was light enough to use as a brow bone & all over base color. It's too dark for my pale skin & doesn't give off enough pigment. I also wanted to use it to blend the sides of my nose contour, but it has a slight sheen to it that makes my nose look even oilier. If you have medium skin tone I'm sure you'll be OK with it but I'm not happy & I won't be repurchasing.

Lovely matte pinky toned lilac shade that works well in the crease whether doing dark smokey, bright, or light purple shadow looks. Highly recommended for those with green or hazel eyes!

Love the color but it's hard to apply, is barely pigmented and fades away so fast. Don't recommend it.

The color is so pigmented and rich, this is wonderful. It's my favorite all over the lid eyeshadow but also my favorite transition color because it has so warmth.

This is my "blender" shadow: I'll use it with highly-pigmented or very glittery shadows I want to tone down a bit, or to help any other two shades to get along. It's a real nice balance of pigmented and buildable; if on me it's somewhat prone to being not very noticeable, that'll be because it's almost the exact shade of my skin (which is why it's such a good "blender", so).

By Hagar 9 months ago.

Medium beige with subtle gold sheen. Neutral-ish shadow that isn't a base, but goes great with anything and in almost every look. Recommended for fair to medium skin; liable to look grey on medium-deep skin tones.

By Heather 1 year ago.

My holy grail transition shade. I've hit pan on it, which is crazy considering how much product you get. I use it mostly for warm looks but you can use it for neutral looks as well. This shade is slightly powdery because it is so pigmented, but I love it so much anyway. Picture on the MUG website makes it looks really pink, but in reality it is a very beautiful soft brown with slightly warm undertones

By Kelly 1 year ago.

Used this product with and without primer on very oily lids. Colour - The actual product is more green than blue possibly a result of the gold reflects. Pigmentation - It is very sheer on me. Even though it is buildable, the fall is terrible. Application - Smooth, no issues. That's why there is even a star. Wear - Starts to crease even before I leave home. Fall-out is a problem and so the colour fades to a very sheer green. Therefore, not long-wearing even with a primer. It is not expensive but after trying this out multiple times with the hope that it will somehow work, and it has not, I don't know what to do with it now.

I love the way this shadow blends. It's a tad darker than I wanted. I wanted more of a transition shade and this is a little too deep for that. But it's a lovely neutral brown sand color with a matte finish. This was my first MUG purchase and I will definitely be buying more. I love the fact that they are talc free, which is why they blend so effortlessly. But it's somewhat hard to buy online and sometimes the photos on the first page do not look like the photos on the item's page so I've been relying on the descriptions, which were not really accurate for this particular shade. I do love the fact that MUG shadows are so affordable and I would much rather have a significant stash of this brand than any drugstore brand. I do have a large Z palette which I plan on filling up with MUG shadows. However, the range of colors seems somewhat limited right now. There are very few true neutral or cool transition shades. That's what I thought Barcelona Beach was going to be but it turned out to be a neutral medium brown. I can still use it but that just means I'm still on the hunt for a lighter transition shade. Thank heavens the shipping is really reasonable. The MUG blushes are beautiful btw.

Cosmopolitan is such a gorgeous color, especially for people with green or hazel eyes. This shadow is hyper pigmented, and blends like a dream.

I like the color of Cinderella, but I feel like it's less pigmented than other Makeup Geek eyeshadows. I probably will not repurchase after panning it.

By Celesta 2 years ago.

This is the only MUG duochrome eyeshadow that I don't like... I have the hardest time working with it. To me it doesn't have a black base, it's a navy base and whenever I try to work with it, it smears everywhere and not in a good way. It's really really messy to work with. I also noticed that after I've applied it I will get some small navy blue fallout from it, that is really hard to clean up because it smears so much. I hope that they do something to improve this shade. Maybe I got a bad one, but I really don't like it at all.
