The Colour is a nude / sand shade with a lot of ultra fine sparkles. It almost gives a highlight effect.
Although it's a lose pigment I do find its incredibly easy to work with with virtually no fall out.
I always used MAC Paint Pots underneath my shadows to help it last longer but this is a staple in my make up collection. You can wear it on its own or apply over a darker shade to lighten it up and get that amazing shimmer it has. It's actually one of those shades that when you apply it it looks like you've used a few colours when it reality it's just the highlighting effect it gives.
The bottom line is... This shadow is a must. It's not cheap but it will last you a really long time and could easily wear it on a daily basis for a day look or paired with darker shades for a smokey eye.
