  • Awesome Brow Bone Colour

    Review by Julia on April 30, 2015

    Love wearing this at the brow bone and to buff out any harsh lines of colour, this is perfect for my skin tone.
  • amazing

    Review by Jasmine on April 7, 2015

    perfect under the brow highlighter for natural looks, I use it every day
  • Discreet

    Review by Chloe on February 18, 2015

    Very close to my skin tone so I use it as a base or under the brow. Easy to work with and good pigmentation. I really like it.
  • Perfection

    Review by Jessica on October 2, 2014

    Perfect texture. Beautiful color. Super pigmented. Ideal highlight shade.
  • Basically a Base...

    Review by anna on September 27, 2014

    It's not a bad product, in fact its a pretty good product in general. It works amazing as a base instead of actual eye primer if you have oily lids or just applied a creamy base and want to matte it out a bit but I feel like I have to build it up a lot more than I should to make it a primary lid color... It has an amazing feel on the eye though. If you are looking for something that will completely get rid of discoloration on the lids (which is what I was hoping Vanilla Bean would do well for me) I would go with Coastal Scents Chamois Nude Hot Pot over MUG's Vanilla Bean... But I would still recommend this product. I mean come on, its a total staple shadow!
  • Great Highlighter

    Review by Courtne on September 22, 2014

    Perfect for under the brow. I tried several Urban Decay colors, but most were too shimmery. The mattes were too chalky. This one was perfect.
  • Great "nothing" color

    Review by Fern on August 20, 2014

    I use this color to set the primer on my lid and also under my brow bone to blend out Mocha which I put in the crease. It's a perfect color for my skin tone and it blends out all my colors seamlessly. This is a must have for anyone's collection.
  • my substitute for eyeprimer

    Review by DcMe on July 18, 2014

    Sometimes I dislike the feel of any eyeprimer on my eyes so I simply apply vanilla bean all over my eyes before putting other colors. It works great on my medium skin.
  • Creamy

    Review by Chrissy on July 14, 2014

    I love this color for my highlight. It's not easy to find a matte creamy vanilla color. I'm too old to have shimmer underneath my eyebrows & this color is perfect for that area.
  • Must have eyeshadow color for fair skin with veins on the eys

    Review by Megan on June 30, 2014

    This color actually matches my skin tone perfectly. I'm super pale and I have veins on my eyelids vividly show up on my eyes. This eyeshadow actually covers them!!! I think it's because it's decently thick in texture and I always layer it with other MUG shadows, but I'm super impressed. However I don't notice that it's slightly shimmery at all. It's the perfect basic vanilla shade that blends effortlessly and looks completely natural!!! Highly recommend this shade for people with fair skin like me.
  • nice simple shade

    Review by danielle on March 15, 2014

    When looking at all my makeup geek shades this one stands out the least but it is also the one that I use the most. It is nice for under the brow, sometimes I put a little shimma shimma on top to ad an extra pop but mostly I use it by itself. I also like this as a muted lid shade with some country girl and cocoa bear.
  • Simply Perfect!

    Review by Christine on February 9, 2014

    I LOVE THIS COLOR...need I say more? LOL
    I use this one DAILY!
  • Versatile Colour!

    Review by GHYW on October 3, 2013

    The texture is almost creamy, and it is mostly matte, save for a very subtle sheen. I'm fair-skinned, and this colour works well as a highlighter below the browbone and a blending colour. It's versatile because I discovered that it neutralizes the pinkish tone of my eyelid, so it works as an overall lid colour too.
  • Perfect blending or browbone color

    Review by Paula on August 24, 2013

    This is the perfect color for me to use to blend above my crease and/or just under the brow. These shadows are creamy enough, blend well and the color payoff is great ! I just wish I had found out about Makeup Geek before I ordered shadows from MAC !
  • Great blending colour for pale skin

    Review by Meisje on February 8, 2013

    I ordered this with a bunch of other MUG shadows. Nice texture, blends well, not too powdery (as matte shades can sometimes be). It's a great match for my skin (porcelain) in terms of blending. It's also nice as an all-over lid color on days when you just want to even the tone of your lids.

    On me, this shade is very similar to Blanc Type by MAC.
  • Great blending color

    Review by Annie on January 8, 2013

    This is a great blending color.
  • Excellent blender/highlighter

    Review by Lara on September 28, 2012

    This one was a surprise to me, I thought there would be more shimmer, but it is actually better than I expected as a blender/highlighter. It is almost matte, but as others have said with just a tiny glint to it when the light hits it. Perfect!
  • All In One

  • Good background

    Review by Leah on August 26, 2012

    I mainly use this as to pat all over my eye to ensure that I don't have any damp spots left by my foundation that wil 'grab' on the dark crease colours. It is a good neutral colour on my alabaster skin. I don't see a lot of colour - but it evens things out a little.
  • Amazing!

    Review by Alyson on June 22, 2012

    Such great eyeshadows! This color in particular is great. It's a nice compliment to my skin tone and helps me blend other colors. I use a z palette and these pans stick so well to it, much better than Mac pans. I've been eyeing these up for a while and now that I ordered some, I dont know why I waited so long! I will definitely be purchasing these instead of Mac colors which was my original plan. Love these!!!
  • Under Brow Nude Color

    Review by Jessica on April 26, 2012

    I'm a NW20 in Mac and this is a great brown color for me. I like that it's not super shimmery. You could also use it as a crease blending color.
  • Perfect under brow highlighter for my skin tone

    Review by Sandra on April 8, 2012

    It's just very slightly shimmery. Just enough to highlight nicely, but not so shimmery that it's obvious. It pretty much blends right in with my skin tone, which is light-medium during the winter & medium in the summer. Very pigmented, almost buttery in texture, blends extremely well, very easy to load onto my brushes. Works great to blend down & soften the edges of darker shades as well. Definitely one of my most often used eye shadows.
  • nice

    Review by Pink Star on March 8, 2012

    This color is very nice light beige base color. it is easy to work with. I like it.
  • very nice!!

    Review by melissa on March 1, 2012

    wow love this product great color !good job Malen
  • Fantastic Quality

    Review by Dani on February 27, 2012

    Highly pigmented. Perfect blending color for fair skin. Will definitely be purchasing more colors!
  • Very Nice

    Review by Krysten on February 21, 2012

    This color doesn't really have shimmer to it, it's mostly matte with a few ultrafine flecks of sparkle to it which keep it from looking chalky. Love this color, use it all the time!
  • Great blending color

    Review by Jujubean758 on January 30, 2012

    This actually looks darker than I imagined it would be. That said, I have medium skin tone with yellow undertones. I use this for blending and a highlight under my brow. That said, its probably a tad light for my skin tone if I want something completely nude; I could probably get away with using Purely Naked. Anyway, overall great shadow nonetheless. Very blend-able and smooth.
  • Beautiful

    Review by Mandy on January 28, 2012

    Cant speak highly enough of these eyeshadows. Way better than Mac eyeshadow and blend with such ease.
  • Every day necessity

    Review by Susen on January 14, 2012

    I love matte eye shadows, but they're so hard to find. MUG Vanilla Bean is a lovely, light, buttercream matte shadow. It's wonderful on the lid, lovely as a blending colour and fantastic under the brow bone. It goes on smoothly, blends beautifully and lasts all day. I've used this colour every day since getting it.
  • Versatile Colour

    Review by Kirky J on January 4, 2012

    Not too shimmery, very creamy colour, great as highlight colour for the arch area. Perfect blending colour.
  • Buttery & blendable

    Review by NerdyLibrarianGirl on January 1, 2012

    On me this colour is very similar to MAC's Brule, but honestly, MUG's Vanilla Bean is even smoother and creamier. I use it on the brow bone and to blend out other colours. Its amazing!
