Mahe #1 is a soft, light brown with muted, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It looked much warmer swatched than it did applied, despite the other shades looking more true-to-pan when swatched. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty texture that made it sheer out a bit when applied on bare skin. The eyeshadow was blendable, though, and seemed to "melt" a little over a few minutes, which helped it appear smoother. It lasted for seven hours on me before fading noticeably.
