your most hated mac e/s?

post #1 of 262
Thread Starter 
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!)

Re: your most hated mac e/s?

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.

Re: your most hated mac e/s?

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

Re: your most hated mac e/s?

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.

Re: your most hated mac e/s?

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.

Trax. I hate it, worst ever.

Re: your most hated mac e/s?

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.

As far as eyeshadow that I hate.. Playfull, that one is always too cheer for my taste.

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.

Pink venus. Awful colour on me and looks bad with everything.

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?

idol eyes - chunky crap!
pink venus - oh why did i buy this?
beauty marked - i have absolutely no desire to ever use this color..

Re: your most hated mac e/s?

.. and nanigold. i only have it cause it came with the coc spiced choc quad but it's still rubbish!
post #18 of 262

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.

Re: your most hated mac e/s?

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...

Re: your most hated mac e/s?

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.

Re: your most hated mac e/s?

Bang on Blue! It's sooo pretty in the pan, but doesn't show up at all, so sheer and chalky
post #23 of 262

Re: your most hated mac e/s?

Me no likey Club.

I can't get it to stick on my lid
post #24 of 262

Re: your most hated mac e/s?

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

Re: your most hated mac e/s?

^^passionate strangely works for me too. i was nervous that it wouldnt but it shows up very well as long as i use painterly underneath lol

Re: your most hated mac e/s?

I don't hate it, but Club frustrates me.
post #28 of 262

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!

Re: your most hated mac e/s?

I fuggen hate shroom. It makes me look like I have ashy eye lids. OMG! I love club! It looks great under a black base. Give it a second chance lol

Re: your most hated mac e/s?

I have to agree with those who said pink venus. This color never shows up on me. Even when i had the Charged Water.
