Me Siento… Muy Excited
MAC Me Siento Muy Excited Eyeshadow x 8 Palette is a new, limited edition eight-pan palette that featured three shimmery shades and five matte shades. There were two shades–both Dazzleshadows–that performed pretty poorly without applying them with a dampened brush (I would recommend an adhesive spray), and those really brought down the overall performance of the palette. The mattes performed decently–pigmented, longer-wearing, and most were easily blended out.
MAC Te Amo Eyeshadow
Te Amo is a medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had nearly opaque color coverage that adhered evenly to bare skin and diffused well along the edges without sheering out too readily. The texture was soft, smooth, and velvety without being too powdery nor too firmly pressed into the pan. This shade lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.
MAC Captive Heart Eyeshadow
Captive Heart is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had excellent pigmentation with a soft, smooth consistency that was lightly powdery in the pan but not prone to fallout during application. The eyeshadow applied well to bare skin and diffused easily along the edges. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.
Me Siento… Muy Excited
Me Siento Muy Excited is a light-medium, plummy brown base with pink-to-purple shifting sparkle and pearl. It had semi-sheer pigmentation on its own, applied dry, but there was also a ton of fallout during application that really made it hard to wear without dampened a brush (whether with plain water or with an adhesive spray).
The consistency was drier and dustier, which resulted in an uneven application of powder and more fallout. Dry, it stayed on decently for five hours with some fallout, and applied wet, I was able to get closer to seven hours of decent wear with less fallout.
MAC Como te Extrano Eyeshadow
Como te Extrano
Come to Entrano is a light peach with strong, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out without difficulty. The texture was soft, moderately powdery with a tendency to drop a bit of fallout during application. It lasted well for eight hours before fading a bit.
MAC Live in Concert Eyeshadow
Live in Concert
Live in Concert is a deep, charcoal brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture was slightly firm to the touch (though not powdery) and was best used with a lighter hand to build up coverage as it was harder to blend out. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.
MAC 25 Eyeshadow
25 is a medium-dark red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It was fairly smooth, though a little drier, but it applied fairly evenly and wasn’t too much effort to blend out along the edges. It had good color coverage that was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer more. The color stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
It’s a Texas Thing
It’s a Texas Thing is a medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of copper sparkle throughout. The consistency was drier and more powdery as a result, so there was a fair amount of fallout during application, and what little transferred to my lid, did not do so that evenly.
It really wasn’t workable on its own; I had to use it with a dampened brush, which helped everything bind together and apply more smoothly to my lid. It had sheer to semi-sheer coverage otherwise. It lasted decently for six hours but had moderate fallout when worn dry and closer to eight-hour wear with light fallout applied with a dampened brush.
MAC Los Dinos Eyeshadow
Los Dinos is a light brown with strong, warm orange undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out nicely. The texture was soft, velvety, and smooth, though lightly powdery in the pan. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
