MAC Natural Vice Eyeshadow x 12 Palette is a new, limited edition palette featuring warmer neutral tones with a mix of mattes and shimmers. It has more of a light-to-medium depth range but is helped a lot by the two deeper, more contrasting shades. The quality was decent; there were some nice shades, some so-so ones, and a couple of misses.
MAC Fab Accent Eyeshadow
Fab Accent is a deeper, golden beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was stiffer and harder to work with, and the resulting pigmentation was more medium, which was somewhat buildable to semi-opaque coverage with two to three layers. It lasted nicely for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably on me.
MAC Pleasing to the Eye Eyeshadow
Pleasing to the Eye
Pleasing to the Eye is a muted, light-medium peach with warm, rosy undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was soft, blendable, and easy to pick up as it wasn’t too powdery nor too firmly pressed in the pan. The pigmentation was buildable from semi-opaque to opaque with two layers. On me, it stayed on well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.
MAC Sun Tweaked Eyeshadow
Sun Tweaked is a light, pinky peach with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The eyeshadow had excellent color coverage with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that wasn’t too firmly nor too softly pressed in the pan. It wore well for eight hours on me before it showed slight fading.
MAC Diamond Butterfly Eyeshadow
Diamond Butterfly is a pale gold with strong,w arm undertones and a chunky, glittering finish. The texture was very loosely-pressed–a little went a long way, so I highly recommend using a light hand with this shade to avoid 1) tons of fallout, and 2) not run through it quickly. It had opaque pigmentation and was best applied by pressing and gently pushing the product onto the lid, which minimized fallout and improved evenness in the initial lay down of the powder. This shade lasted well for eight hours on me before creasing faintly.
MAC Valley of the Goddess Eyeshadow
Valley of the Goddess
Valley of the Goddess is a pale orange with strong, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The consistency was soft, lightly powdery, and there was slight fallout if I wasn’t careful when blending it out. It stayed on nicely for seven and a half hours before fading on me.
MAC Cork Eyeshadow
Cork is a muted, medium brown with subtle, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer more. The texture was soft, a little powdery, but blendable and adhered well to bare skin. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.
MAC Struck Gold Eyeshadow
Struck Gold is a medium-dark gold with strong, warm yellow undertones and a frosted finish. The texture was a bit denser, but it was thinner and stiffer to work with, so I felt like it was harder to pick up product evenly and to get it to transfer to my lid. I was able to apply and build it up, but it was a shade I’d recommend using with a dampened brush to speed up its application. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage that lasted nicely for eight hours on me.
MAC Desert Rose-mance Eyeshadow
Desert Rose-mance is a light gold with strong, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one layer, which I was able to build to full coverage using a second layer. The texture felt drier and more loosely-pressed, which resulted in slight fallout during application and blending. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours on me.
MAC Magmatique Eyeshadow
Magmatique is a medium brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent color payoff in one layer, which adhered evenly to my skin and blended out easily along the edges without losing its intensity. The texture was soft, silky, and substantial without being powdery. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.
MAC Natural Vice Eyeshadow
Natural Vice is a blackened brown with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation paired with a soft, lightly powdery consistency. The eyeshadow sheered out a bit and had some fallout when I worked with it over my bare skin, though I was able to build it up overall. This shade lasted well for eight hours on me before it showed signs of fading.
MAC Go Wilder Eyeshadow
Go Wilder is a medium brown with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had rich pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that was easy to apply and to blend out on my skin. It lasted nicely for eight hours on me before I noticed any fading.
MAC Rebel Pebble Eyeshadow
Rebel Pebble is a medium-dark, olive brown with warm undertones and a barely-there golden pearl over a matte finish. The color payoff was opaque in a single layer, while the consistency was soft, silky, and blendable without being too powdery. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.
