veluxe pearls- i can´t see any shimmer or a amazing color-it looks blah on me
lustres- i have all the glitter on my face and no color on my lid
satin taupe-make me look tired
black tied- where is the glitter after applying???!!!
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.
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...
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.
