Mac describes this eyeshadow as a soft golden peachy brown and I think that is an accurate description. This shadow looks very brown in the pan but once I apply to my eye, there is a little bit of orange to it which adds great depth to my eye. Soft Brown eyeshadow is definitely one of my favorite eyeshadows of all time, I think it's a must have in any eyeshadow collection. The finish is a matte which can be hard to work with sometimes but this particular matte shade is a lot better then other matte eyeshadows I have from Mac. It's a lot smoother, but you do still have to build up the color to achieve the effect you want.
If I could tell you to buy one eyeshadow from Mac this would be the eyeshadow. The color is so versatile and I use it a couple of different ways.
Most of the time I like to use this as a transition color or a blending color. It works great with greens, blues and is the perfect shadow to use when you are doing a smokey eye. Just apply this shadow above the darker crease colors and it will give your a eye a nice warmth and will look more natural, (as natural as it can be with a smokey eye)
Applied over Mac Painterly Paint Pot
