Review! - Make Up For Ever Eyeshadow in Tangerine 18

Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Eyeshadow in 18 Tangerine is sold at Sephora, and Sephora has this to say about it:

The unique texture of MAKE UP FOR EVER Eyeshadow is due to its high pigment density, which makes them last and last. You can obtain maximum coverage with the Matte texture; the Semi-Matte has a silky satiny feel; and the iridescent shades give a transparent sheen.
Dany's Tip "If you have dark skin, try applying a light-colored shadow over the entire lid first before applying a darker color, for luminous highlights."

Sephora is the exclusive beauty retailer for this product.

Tangerine is described as a "vibrate matte orange".  They aren't kidding.  Except about the matte part.  You can definitely see shimmer in the shadow swatches (especially the one over primer), but you don't see it in the pan.  Once it is on the eye, the shimmer is so subtle that most people probably would consider it to be nearly matte.

Wearing it:

This color is extremely vibrant in person.  I wore it only on my lids, and blended out with Make Up For Ever's Star Powder in Yellow Gold to the brow bone.  At the outer brow bone I put a stronger layer of just the Yellow Gold.  I lined the lower eye with Tangerine from the center to the outer corner, and used the Star Powder in Yellow gold at the inner corner to the center, meeting the Tangerine, and bringing the Yellow Gold onto the water line.  Then I finished out with black mascara.

The end result is eye-catching (haha!), but oddly, it was subtle enough to wear to work.  Pair it with a natural lip (whatever your "my lips but better" color is).
