I really love the formulation and texture of this eyeshadow. It's smooth, with a little shimmer and is a great neutral. I'm already hitting the pan on my 2nd one. For reference I'm a NC 20 and this eyeshadow pops against my skintone. I would definitely recommend this. One of the best eyeshadows I've ever used. I tried to find something similar to MAC and wasn't able to find anything close to it.
