MAC Antonio Lopez 6 Eyes/Violet Eyeshadow Palette
MAC Antonio Lopez 6 Eyes/Violet Eyeshadow Palette ($43.50 for 0.19 oz.) is a new and limited edition palette that launches in-stores on September 12th. It contains six eyeshadows. Like the other eyeshadow palettes, it’s more of a miss than a hit, because the eyeshadows are not consistent and I didn’t feel like any of the eyeshadows in this palette were even great. A couple were decent to good, but it feels like a situation where you’re just impressed when one isn’t horrible. Carbon is the worst performer, and how dry and stiff it is makes you want to tear your hair out. Both Carbon and Envisioning Pink were significantly faded after six hours of wear.
Lithe Spirit is described as a “cool cream [with a Satin finish].” It’s a cool-toned, pale beige with a mostly matte finish. It had fairly good color payoff, was slightly dry/powdery, but it was workable. This is a repromote. Urban Decay Kinky is more beige. MAC Creamy Bisque is shimmery. MAC All Races is darker, purpler. See comparison swatches.
Envisioning Pink is described as a “mid-tone blue pink [with a Satin finish].” It is a cool-toned, blue-based, medum pink with a mostly matte finish. It was very powdery, so it was somewhat sheer but very prone to sheering out and fading during wear. MAC Feather Pink is lighter. MAC Pin-up Purple is darker. Bobbi Brown Ultra Violet is darker. See comparison swatches.
Violet Impact is described as a “vibrant violet [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a pink-tinted violet purple with a soft, pearly sheen. It had so-so pigmentation, but the texture was a bit dry, so it was stiffer and more difficult to apply and blend on the lid. MAC Power Boosted is similar, slightly pinker. MAC Spoiled Rich is purpler, less shimmery. MAC Push the Edge is purpler, darker. Inglot #439 is much purpler. See comparison swatches.
Showgirl is described as a “dark blue grey [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a medium, blue-based gray with a frosted finish. The texture was somewhat dry, almost flaky, so it didn’t apply as smoothly as I expected for a VP. The color payoff was fairly good, though. This is a repromote. theBalm Matt McDonald is darker. MAC Frozen Blue is lighter. MAC Cyber is lighter, cream. See comparison swatches.
Graphic Style is described as a “deep silver [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a cool-toned, brown-tinged taupe with a soft, pearly finish. It had good color payoff, and the texture was fairly smooth. Urban Decay Armor is slightly warmer. Urban Decay Mushroom is warmer, lighter. MAC Dynamic Duo 3 #1 is less shimmery, darker. MAC Dangerously Cuvee is lighter, cream. MAC Moth Brown is less shimmery. MAC Electroplate is lighter. Inglot #434 is grayer, darker. See comparison swatches.
Carbon is described as an intense black [with a Matte finish].” It’s supposed to be a medium-dark black with a matte finish, but because the color payoff and texture are so poor, it’s really just a splotchy black. The texture is so stiff and dry that it is a total pain in the behind to apply and blend. There are plenty of black eyeshadows to choose from. See a few comparison swatches.
