    BEAUTY MARKED! I found it messy, not especially shimmery, and not at all true to the color in the pan. Then it shattered on me half way through. I think Satin Taupe and Black Tied are overrated, without being bad; they just didn't do it for me. Idol Eyes was a complete disappointment.

    Parrot, definitely. It's a beautiful color, and I like it, but it's not worth all the insane prices on ebay.

    Satin Taupe - This is just too light to look good as a crease colour or an overall wash on me. It also makes me look tired. So now I use it as a lid colour with a darker brown in the crease, and it works well enough for that purpose, but I wish I hadn't paid $13 for it!

    Mythology used dry doesn't leave much colour but if you apply a layer of it wet first as a base it's amazing.

    Paradisco for sure, no pigmentation, bad blendability, and when I did get the color to show up, it wasn't all that exciting either =P

    I seventh Shroom. It's the only MAC shadow I have in my main MU bag, and it doesn't do much for me - barely shows up and is too "thin" imo. A great alternative that's much more pigmented is from a Clinique duo with a shimmery warm brown. I *think* it's Like Mink but I could be wrong.

    Underrated - Elite from Belle Azure! Great on warm skintones and fantastic as a bronzer.

    I can't believe so many people dislike Trax! It is my HG eyeshadow. I get so many compliments when I wear it - I think it shows up the colour in my eyes really well.

    Trax makes me look like someone punched me in the face.
    Parrot is alright - didn't look good on me so I sold it, and I agree it is overrated - but not a bad shadow at all.
    Idol Eyes looks gorgeous in the pan, but I heard so many horror stories about application than I've never bothered with it.

    shroom and pink freeze were two of my favorite e/s before i got new shades and learned more about mac and pigments and such! but i still love them. it must be a skintone thing... i find shroom does a good job with dramatic eyes for a highlighter..

    i think i agree with idol eyes though, that's the silvery purple looking one? does nothing at all...

    I second BeautyMarked and Shroom, although I still haven't given up on BeautyMarked. I'm going to try using it wet or over a red base or something.

    Also:
    Pink Freeze -- Chalky, bleh

    Parfait Amour -- Again, chalky, no color pay off

    Vex -- Just looks grey on me :-/ I see no duo-chrome

    Aquadisiac -- One of my very first MAC shadows... and my first swap item haha. The color pay off was just not what I was expecting

    Honesty -- Pretty shimmer... but doesn't show up on me at all

    Pink Venus -- Gave me horrible rabbit eyes... and I like pink shadows typically

    Retrospeck -- Again, very pretty, but didn't show up on me

    Well, I hate greens so to me the very popular shadows like Bitter and Overgrown are icky.
    Due to lack of interest, tomorrow is cancelled.

    Parrot - not beacuse its not a nice color im esp attracted to blues but they just dont go well with my super pale skin and blue eyes it doesnt look right

    Shroom- I love the texture and would recommend it for darker skin tones but it doesnt even show up on my barely.

    Black Tied- Its more of a gray unless you pack it on

    Humid- uggh one of the first colors i got from mac its preety much a forest green good in combos but def not on its own.

    Bronze- Again good in combos but not on its own with my skin tone.

    Sushi flower- awful...NO pigmentation at all. Its horrible.

    Parrot-I love parrot, but I agree, there are many other similar colors out there.

    Amber lights- It jsut turned plain orange on me...it was bad.

    Trax- It just makes my eyes look BRUISED.

    oh, and Maroon pigment. Its really NOT that pretty.

    I'd have say these lot:

    Budding Beauty - I have to PACK on the color to get what I want

    Pompous Blue - This e/s is a bitch to put on, it doesnt go where i want it to go at all and its unblendable

    Amber Lights - This is pretty hyped up and IMO it's like metallic orange on me than metallic brinzey color, just eww lol

    I'm liking blacktied, i wouldnt buy it in store but I got it in my Zandra palette.

    Amber lights - If I use it on the inner 1/3 of my eyes, they water itch and burn. Its ok as a crease colour though. Nothing special as far as Im concerned.

    Parrot / kicky blue - I have the Liza pm quad and got it just for the kicky blue and I did like the colour. Nothing fantastic but it did look good on me. That said, I got pompous blue and decided to use the two together - pompous blue in the crease and kicky blue on the lid.

    I saw ABSOLUTLEY NO COLOUR DIFFERENCE!!! The only way you could even tell that there were 2 shadows used was that the shimmer faded out into matte So I swatched it on my hand and the colours are exactly the same on my skin tone, just different textures
    Yet when I used it on my sister, kicky blue and pompous blue are sooo different. Im thinking of gettin rid of the quad, its such a dissapointment now, and I prefer the texture of pompous blue anyway.

    Chrome yellow - makes me look like I am seriously ill. Canary yellow is a much better yellow for me, it makes my blue eyes pop and doesnt make me look like Im at deaths door.
