This is a great shade to deepen any eye makeup look. It is also a great dark alternative to black without the intensity.....dark but soft at the same time. Can also be used as a liner

Why is it so hard to find a great cool deep brown? Every other brown shadow has made my blue-grey eyes look tired and sore so I always ended up giving them away - until now. This one is a perfect keeper.

This is a very versatile color! I use it for my brows and outer v. I have light brown hair but in-between light-dark brows and it looks so exactly like my natural eyebrow color you totally can't tell I've filled in my brows. It just looks like I have good brows. Espresso is like "Brun" by MAC except it won't cause a rash. As with all of the Red Apple eyeshadows I have bought, it is of higher quality than MAC, and worth the extra money. It is extremely well-pigmented and blendable (zero blotching!). It can go on light for a professional look (I work in an office-y environment) or dramatic for stage lighting (I play music live) without looking fake. I use Espresso for the outer v, blended into Yes You Canyon for the upper lids. Then Clean Slate for lower lids, and Black Magic for the liner.

I use it mainly to fill in my eyebrows. It’s the perfect color for me.

I tell you, I am loving every eyeshadow I have purchased from Red Apple Lipstick. I tried eyeshadows from another GF makeup company, but found that they weren't pigmented enough. This eyeshadow is extremely versatile and beautifully intense. Love , love, love!!!!

Espresso is the perfect brown for blue eyes. It is strong enough to be used as a liner if you use it wet, and soft enough to use under they eye to define your lashes. It is a rich brown color that goes really well with the blue shades in the Red Apple color line and is great with Olive this Color. I am really happy with it.

I decided this shade is a little too dark as eyeshadow, but it works great as a brow filler. I apply it dry with a shadow applicator, brush it out with a brow brush and it looks totally natural and lasts all day. Great replacement for my toxic brow pencils!

Espresso is exactly what you hope it to be. It's a great crease color and a great wet eyeliner or dry smudgy eyeliner. And it works great on your brows if you have dark brown brows like I do. Most definitely a staple in your makeup bag. It goes with most of the colors I have: Champage, Dirty Girl, Violet Vintage, Porcelain.. Just great!

I originally bought this shadow to be used as an eyeliner. I have used it wet for a more precise look and dry for something smudgier. It looks great. It doesn't stay put, though the way the more toxic versions do but I don't mind re-applying every three-four hours. It is also a nice shadow, a nice deep color that I like to blend with lighter colors or wear in the crease above my lid.
