MAC Princess Jasmine Eyeshadow x 9 Palette is a new, limited edition neutral palette with a slightly pink/plum leaning. It was a mixed bag–some shades were nice, some were so-so, and one shade (Princess Jasmine) was pure disappointment. I thought it was a decent mix of finishes, depths, and tones for a wearable set of shades, though for those with more robust stashes, it is unlikely to cover new territory.
MAC Riffraff Eyeshadow
Riffraff is a light brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent pigmentation with a soft, smooth consistency that was blendable. There was a touch of powderiness in the pan, but I didn’t notice it during application. This shade lasted nicely for eight hours on me before it started to fade visibly on me.
MAC Rags to Riches Eyeshadow
Rags to Riches
Rags to Riches is a pale, peachy gold with warm undertones and a sparkling, frosted finish. It had medium pigmentation that was buildable to opaque coverage with two to three layers. The texture was soft, a little powdery in the pan, but it was blendable and easy enough to work with. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me before it showed signs of fading.
MAC No Ordinary Lamp Eyeshadow
No Ordinary Lamp
No Ordinary Lamp is a light-medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a silky, finely-milled consistency that was somewhat powdery in the pan, but it applied with good pigmentation and didn’t sheer out too readily (but was blendable along the edges). This shade stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading visibly on my lid.
MAC Princess Jasmine Eyeshadow
Princess Jasmine is a medium, reddened-plum with cooler, blue-to-teal shifting sparkle. It had sheer coverage that could only be built up by using it with a wet brush. The texture was drier, loose, and more textured–not quite gritty–and had tons of fallout during application. It lasted for six hours on me but had fallout during wear.
MAC Agrabah Eyeshadow
Agrabah is a light mauve with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that felt more loosely-pressed in the pan, so there was a bit of fallout when I worked with it on bare skin. It wore nicely for eight hours before I noticed any fading on me.
MAC Abu Eyeshadow
Abu is a medium-dark plum with warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a firmer, denser consistency that needed to be used with a heavier hand to pick up product evenly. The eyeshadow adhered well to my skin and blended out without difficulty. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.
MAC Creative Copper Eyeshadow
Creative Copper is a medium gold with warm undertones and a glittery finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation (though Lustres are supposed to be sheerer) with a firmer, stiffer consistency that worked best with a heavier hand in order to pick up product evenly on a brush. There was a bit of fallout during application, though it wasn’t too noticeable. This shade lasted well for eight hours on me but had slight fallout over time.
MAC Live the Genie Life Eyeshadow
Live the Genie Life
Live the Genie Life is a pale pewter with subtle, warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was soft, drier to the touch, and prone to fallout during application. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me before I noticed fading.
MAC Shadowy Lady Eyeshadow
Shadowy Lady is a deep purple with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable pigmentation from semi-opaque to full coverage with two layers. The texture was drier, thinner, and more firmly-pressed in the pan, so it did take a bit of extra effort to apply and even out the application. It stayed on nicely for eight hours on me before I noticed any fading.
