    your most hated mac e/s?

    not to be confused with the more nicely titled 'most overhyped e/s'....
    i mean which one just looks like pure sh!t when it landed on your eyelid?

    for me, texture. i LOVE neutrals browns golds etc.
    so i SHOULD like texture...but i applied it the other day to wear alone, and
    it's just such an orangey light brown yuk on me. and texture is actually what made me think to start this thread (and because i am generally a glass half empty type person, negative nellie )

    i hate you texture! (but it's still in my stash just because, in case, you never know. i want it to change and be fabulous one day!)

    Texture is a really good crease priming color when blended in with a 224 brush. Try it. Love it.
    My most hated shadow is beauty marked. It looks NOTHING like what's in the container when its on the lid. Rant over.

    newly minted. you put it on, try blending... disappears. if you put it on a sticky base, it doesn't budge. and i have no fucking idea what to pair it with... it just sits in my m/u drawer. i wish i didn't buy it

    I agree with Beauty Marked. Sketch is the same for me- I have to do so much work to make Sketch look good on me. For me, Sketch is a cool wine color that makes it look like I'm auditioning for the part of a zombie. The consistency of Gleam is hilarious. It should be so pretty, but it's tough because of its texture.

    Bitter is the one that I don't like. I did a St. Patrick's Day look with it and I had to pack it on so that color will show. I thought Bitter was going to be pigmented that I expected to be but I was wrong.

    French Cuff. It blends to nothingness, chunky consistency, poor color payoff. I thought it would grow on me. It hasn't.

    Idol eyes because I hate the blue reflect and consistency and Trax because it doesn't show up on me! I want to love it but it just turns grey and muddy on my complexion.

    cosmic. it looks yellow on me. and not a cool yellow, a dingy jaundice yellow. but I keep it because it is in a pretty white container I think from the moonbeam collection.

    To get it as it look in the pan try a good sponge applicator to pack it on, works great for me.

    Awww, Texture is one of my favorites, I use it almost everyday. It looks really neutral on me (very fair redhead) when a lot of browns look too ashy and harsh.

    My pick too. I was hoping it would blend well with greens but it just sits and looks way too blue on me. I should've returned it; it's the only shadow I have that I actively dislike.

    I know, Trax is possibly the worst mac e/s EVER. I could find a cheap covergirl shadow that is 100x better than that thing. MAC needs to discontinue it to save the sanity of other makeup shoppers that might accidently pick it up

    Re: your most hated mac e/s?

    My least favourite is Newly Minted. I can't get much colour payoff from it, it won't blend and the colour looks terrible on me. I tried to sell it once I realised this but no-one wanted it, which says it all!

    I'm surprised that Bitter has been mentioned; until Eyepopping came out and bettered it, it was one of my most-worn shades. It's really vibrant with Bare Canvas as a base. I also Trax as an e/s and as a liner. I usually wear it blended out into Playful, Da Bling or some other similar pink and lined with the pinkish pearlglide liner (forgtten the name, sorry). It's great with blue eyes.

    PASSIONATE!! GROSS, so NOT passionate at all! I hate this colour, it made me look like I was sick! And for some people I've seen wearing it, they also look sick! Blah.. Red shadows need to usually be more burgundy in colour, so not a TRUE red, otherwise they look ... Err...

    Dear Cupcake from Sugarsweet. It's a horrible e/s but luckily I found out it makes a great blush so it wasn't a total waste.

    Bang on Blue! It's sooo pretty in the pan, but doesn't show up at all, so sheer and chalky

    pretty much all of the colors from the Fafi Eyes 2 quad. was that a joke? like were they serious when they put that quad together?

    oh, and Sushi Flower. It's a very pretty color, but the payoff really sucks eggs.

    This colour works for me if I do not wear it on my lid. If I wear a soft green or something complimentary on the lid and this in the crease, it's faboo

    I don't hate it, but Club frustrates me.

    Re: your most hated mac e/s?

    it's so sad that newly minted doesn't blend well... i thought it was just me! i love the colour but rarely wear it because it's so hard to work with!!

    personally i hate juiced... i don't like really powdery texture to it - i swear i swipe my brush on it once and fall out is going all over the place because it's so crumbley! i don't know if it's just mine though...

    i'm also hating my apres ski that i got from chill - talk about no colour payoff whatsoever! i have to use half a pan just to get enough colour on my lids! so sucky!
