MAC describes samoa silk as polynesian peach. It is a veluxe (Superfine pigment rich and very luxe. Supple to apply. Provides silky smooth matte finish) finish eyeshadow.
Samoa silk is a velvety smooth soft peach eyeshadow. It almost feels like silk when you touch it. It is a matte finish eyeshadow that goes on smoothly on lids. This is more of a buildable eyeshadow as opposed to a very pigmented one. One swipe of it and it gives that ‘wake up’ look to the lids. and if you keep building it up, you can get a gorgeous peachy color on lids. It goes well with almost all neutral eyeshadows, greens and purples. It is a great transition color and comes in handy when you have to soften the edges of your eyeshadow application.
I wouldn’t call it a must have but this works pretty much the ‘Soft Brown‘ way. If you are not able to find Soft brown at the store, try Samoa Silk. However soft brown is more brown and this is more on the peachy side. So give it a try before picking it up. It might get a little tricky to pull off sometimes.
Overall, absolutely no issues with the eyeshadow in terms of fall out or staying power. It’s a great eyeshadow on its own.

MAC Soft Brown vs Samoa Silk
EOTD : You don’t necessarily have to use Samoa silk as a lid color. But for the review sake, I have used it as a lid color and built it up by patting the color as opposed to swiping the color on lids. I mostly use it as an overall wash of color to give a little lift to my eyes.
