MAC Chartreuse Pigment, Sun’s Out, Buns Out, Atlantic Blue Eyeshadows

MAC Chartreuse Pigment ($22.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a bright, light-medium chartreuse with strong, warm undertones. It’s been around for ages, but it is being repromoted in this launch and will be specially packaged for the Good Luck Trolls collection. I’ve always loved this shade as a base color underneath brighter blues, greens, and teals. The nice thing about MAC Pigments is that they bind well on their own, so you can use them just damp and get really smooth, even application, or you can use their Mixing Medium for additional hold, but you can also apply them dry and get them to adhere and wear well on the lid. Chartreuse was richly pigmented, applied well, blended easily, and wore for eight hours before creasing on me.

MAC C’est Chic Eyeshadow x15 Palette

MAC Nordstrom C’est Chic Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.68 oz.) is a set of 15 matte, neutral-hued eyeshadows in a large, plastic compact. Each eyeshadow is full-sized, but they’re not easily removed (they are glued in). I can see this palette being really useful for someone who likes MAC’s matte eyeshadow formula and needs neutrals in their stash. Overall, it’s a good palette, and like most MAC eyeshadows, they tend to perform better when I used them on my eyes than just on my arm. I didn’t have any major issues with any shades; the texture is firmer but soft, blendable, and the pigmentation varied from semi-opaque to opaque (most shades were buildable). The wear was eight to nine hours, without primer. There are three permanent shades in this palette: Soft Brown, Corduroy, and Embark.

MAC Bangin’ Brilliant Eyeshadows (Part 2)

MAC Shock Factor Eyeshadow ($16.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “lime green [with a Matte finish].” It’s a bright, light-medium chartreuse green with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation with a dusty, chalky consistency that was hard to work with. It looked uneven and dry on the skin–with or without primer!–and I could not seem to get it to look decent at all. I even patted it over eyeliner, and it made it look terrible. What I was able to apply lasted six hours! Inglot #343 (P, $6.00) is brighter (95% similar). NARS Celebrate (P, $24.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Bitter (P, $16.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). MAC Madly Sunny (LE, $22.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
