Sephora Colorful Mono Eyeshadow Review and Contest (Win No. 15)

I have decided to do a review/giveaway on a recent product I tried out.  I bought 2 prior to trying it out with the intent of giving one away to one of my subscribers :) Contest details below!
Suede No. 15 is from the sephora collection and is a matte neutral light brown.  Normally I would use this to blend out a shadow, but I opted to put it all over the lid to show off the color (on a normal day, I would recommend it to blend out crease colors).  Depending on skin tone color, this can look more orangey on some.
The pigmentation is decent for a matte color.  I find most mattes are hit or miss.  It is decently blendable and has little to no fall out or even chalkiness that other mattes can have.
Here it is on the lid with a deep plummy brown in the crease (NYX jumbo eyeshadow pencil in cottage cheese for inner corner and Urban Decay Skyscraper Mascara)

I actually really like the colors as fall colors, so it's ironic that I bought them now.  I definitely consider this more warm-toned, but I think it would be workable for others as well. (rest of the face is Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua with Sephora Bronzer in Riviera, lips Kat Von D Lolita Lipgloss).

Overall, this product was a good deal.  Normally it retails for $12 for .07  oz, but you can usually find them for less.  The shade is now sold out online b/c it was on sale, but I actually managed to get mine in the store.  Now, on to the contest.
