First off: Packaging. I personally LOVE when eyeshadow palettes are sleek, slender and travel-friendly and this palette is all three! It reminds me of my Lorac Pro Palette except for that rubbery feel on the outside which I am not a fan of because it can leave a lot of fingerprints. Very chic! Inside are 12 shades of 6. I think that might have been a fun little touch. However… my initial thoughts when swatched dry with my fingertips on the back of my hand? I was NOT impressed and started to get worried.
None of the YouTube videos I watched commented on how poorly they swatch and so I almost wondered at first if there was something wrong with my palette because I expected to feel buttery soft shadows that glided on like a dream. Unfortunately, no. Take a peek:. The matte shades felt chalky which I know can happen with even higher-end brands and there seemed to be a lot of flakiness with the shimmery shades.
I then decided to grab a flat shader brush and see how these applied when dampened a bit, since I know that can really bring out the metallic effect in some shadows and help achieve better color pay-off:. Much better! I felt now I could really see how these might perform on my eyelids since I always wear a primer anyway. I decided to put them to the real test, because come on!
The green iridescence on this one is much brighter than Parrot's. This is a cream that needs to be applied wet so it can be a little difficult to use. It doesn't look to similar in the pot but it's quite close when applied. The blue base isn't quite as rich as Parrot but the green iridescence is similar. The green iridescence is brighter than Parrot's. The blue base isn't as rich as Parrot but it's still very similar. I can barely tell the difference when worn over the aquacolour.
Its base is more turquoise but the green iridescence is just about the same. I think I prefer this to Parrot!
It's richer and has the same green iridescence. Last edited by wulan; Mar 11, at AM. Aku mau posting swatch-nya, tapi tu kamera batrenya minta dicharge. Let's just be happy!

Save your PM and ask your beauty Q's on the forum, please. I like to think that some well read MAC employee was allowed to pick the name. NL is one of my favorites too! So versatile!
MAC has too many eyeshadows in their permanent line, thanks to this series, I am getting to know more of them. Regarding the ck shadow though, I don't have this one but bought Bashful and Smoky Grey on sale. I feel so silly being the know it all person. I had no idea that you loved All That Glitters! Also note there will be some repeats in some photos! MAC Innuendo Eyeshadow 3.
I believe the name is from a novel by William Burroughs, which was loosely adapted into a film in directed by David Cronenberg. I love your Unsung Hero series. I had no idea that you loved All That Glitters!
I got that shade a while ago and it really is amazing and flattering with a variety of shades. Naked lunch looks so nice on you!
Oh yeah, All That Glitters is one of my all time favorite swipe-it-on-and-go colors. What do you like to wear it with? Burroughs book about addiction, substance abuse, and hallucinatory fantasy. Although what that would have to do with a pretty shimmery eyeshadow is beyond me. Perfect highlight shade for every look. This is one of my favorite products of all time! Guess RSVP for now, will do. Never bought this shade because I already have UD Skimp which is based on these swatches quite similar.
I love naked lunch! I use it all the time and its such a versatile eye shadow!!!
One of my all time favs! I love this shadow but it is sooooo much brighter and glittery-er on my pale skin.
When I wear it to work, I often dust some translucent powder on top to tone down the frost a bit. Your eyes looks soooo bright!! Did you use anything else other than the mentioned eyeliner underneath the waterline? I suffer from chronic dark circles and tired eye syndrome..
I feel so silly being the know it all person. Nearly impossible to understand. Styrch recently posted … What NOT to say to a partner who is going through a fitness journey. Like naming a shadow after Guernica, I can only imagine the namer only half knew the content of the work they were naming it after!
MAC Sable Dupes. MAC Sable dupes are shown below with comparison swatches (when available). Refine by price to find .. Urban Decay · Eyeshadow . Urban Decay Toasted vs MAC Sable - they're almost identical in colour and texture. Dupe alert but I love this color so I don't mind having two.
I do wonder myself where the name came from :p Naked lunch is my very first MAC eyeshadow!
