your most hated mac e/s? - Page 8

post #211 of 262

Most disappointing--Idol Eyes.  Maybe I should try again now I know to use a base and pat it on and I got one used so maybe someone ruined the finish but I swapped that sucker away.  So pretty in the pan.  So meh on the lids.

 

Most hated--Ego (the Starflash one, not the Peacocky one) great pigmentation, very blendable, gorgeous mid tone neutral pink, true to pan color, and made my eye look like a bunny rabbit with pink eye.  So unattractive I had to swap it.  It was a little too blendable, all the fall out irritated the shit out of my eyeballs and then I really had pink eye, not just looking like I had it.  Serious bunny rabbit city pink eye.

 

Runner Up Most Hated--don't excommunicate me or anything but I love the Naked Lunch color but it was a hot shimmery mess on me and looks like total fish scales--emphasized every crepey skin contour and crows foot on my eye.lids  I rename it Regurgitated Lunch.  Seriously ugly on me which sucks because I love the color, the duochrome, the finish and all that.  But I am not trying to look like the CryptKeeper.

I think anything Lustre sucks...but I may be wrong because ever since I first bought Swimming, I've avoided lustre finishes ever since.

 

Oh! And MAC's mattes. I've used mattes from Sugarpill and they blend BEAUTIFULLY, but I can never work with mattes from MAC like Newly Minted or Fig 1 >_<

Passionate, I hate this e/s!!! Its stiff and has horrible pigmentation.

post #214 of 262

I think the name is Moss (forgive me if I'm wrong). It's a dark green color....I received it as a gift a like 4 years ago and HATE IT!  I cannot get it to blend well for the life of me :(  It sits in my collection and never gets used.

Mythology! So beautiful though.

Satin Taupe! Makes me look like I have been hit in the face.

post #218 of 262

I hope nobody gets mad at me for this but i hate forgery...too much fall out and just all around messy for me anyway.

There are eyeshadows I hate just for it's color like Electra, Swish, Tilt, Winkle
I also hate when the color is beautiful but the texture sucks BeautyMarked, newly minted, forgery, teal.
I have Electric coral pigment from pro which I find pretty lame.
I'm also pretty bummed about the color payoff from the prolongwear eyeshadows.

Green smoke- can't get it to show up, just leaves a green glittery tinge to the lids, in a very bad way
Violet trance- beautiful vibrant purple in the pan, ZERO color payoff, I even scraped off the top layer, tried using it wet, dig my brush in and get virtually no color. I would just through it in the trash but the color is so pretty I can't part with it.

Pretty much the same story with me. Beautiful colour in the pan, but it sucks. So dry, and no matter how much I load my brush with it, it won't go on. I don't quite have the heart to toss it, though.

For anyone who complained about Mythology, French Cuff or even Pink Venus payoff quality, try using LA Splash Base/Sealer under them. The difference is amazing!

 

 

French Cuff on the lid

 

 

Heatherette Trio, with the infamous Pink Venus. The glitter didn't show up in the pic, though.

 

 

Mythology on the lid.

 

LA Splash used for a base in these 3 looks. Wish I had found this stuff sooner.

Fabu!

I'm so about to buy that on ulta! thanks for sharing!

I got Vibrant Grape from Style Warriors and it was horrible. I just threw it away. I could literally rub my finger or brush in the pan for an hour and pick up absolutely nothing. I even scraped off the first layer to see if that would help. Nope. Same thing with Atlantic Blue.
 

post #226 of 262

Honesty. It looks beautiful in the pan but on my eyelids, it's a horror story. It ends up looking like a washed out, uneven gray colour. It's so strange. And I've tried to wear it with different bases but nope, it just doesn't work.

post #227 of 262

sketch just bleehhh i have tried different looks with it too....o well such a pretty color in the pot

I love Patina! I wear it in the crease with Mac vanilla pigment or shroom on the lid. I'm NC 20 or 25 though. It was one of my first shadows to hit pan on.

Patina is one of my favourite eyeshadows! That absolutely sucks that it doesn't work for you :(

I hated this too.  I also have Post Haste which is similar in color but a much better texture/color payoff.

post #232 of 262
I don't like much of the lustre finishes. Except for Aquadisiac, Retrospeck, Mythology, Juiced (r.i.p).

yes yes yes! What a fail of an eye shadow!

Mystical Mist. It's such a gorgeous colour that I bought two of them, only to discover the first time I tried it that I am horribly allergic to it. I spent nearly two weeks with my eyes and the skin around them horribly swollen and the skin dried out and cracking :( It took a month before I'd recovered completely.

As much as I don't want to admit it, Contrast. It's such a pretty midnight blue in the pan... But it just looks almost black on me. ssad.gif too harsh for a daily look. I keep it hoping I'll find some use for it or I'll put it on and it's magically much prettier. But never is. Ugh.

Wah double post. My bad!

How are you applying it and what kind of brush(es) are you using? The problem sounds like one I had with NARS Night Porter - the more you rub or blend it in, the more black or muddy the color appears.

MAC 239 (I think) patting it on, various RT brushes swiping, every method I can think of. No matter what I do it just looks dark and disappointing ssad.gif

For me, it would have to be Goldenrod. I wanted a yellow to lightly dust over darker browns to wake them up. Total fail . . .looks like a yellow cab. Anyone have some good ideas for Goldenrod?

I hate Motif and Club. Also not a fan of Swiss Chocolate or Bisque. Motif was just disgusting, not pigmented whatsoever and barely showed up on my skin. I returned that one. I loved the color of Club, but after a few hours it completely disappeared from my lid, you couldn't tell I had even put it on at all. Swiss Chocolate and Bisque are just not pigmented enough for my liking (Bisque kind of blends in with my skintone).
