MAC Ablaze Eyeshadow

MAC Ablaze Eyeshadow ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone coral [with a matte finish].” It’s a reddish-tinged, medium-dark orange with a matte finish. Wet ‘n’ Wild Desert Festival #2 is more orange. Guerlain les Fauves #3 is pinker. MAC Neo-Orange is a smidgen brighter but similar (and it was the first shade I thought it might be similar to). Make Up For Ever #5 is very similar. Guerlain Coup de Foudre #2 is satiny and a touch redder. Inglot #361 is pinker.

Ablaze had good color payoff, and the texture was soft and blendable–but a little powdery. I recommend patting the product onto the lid to achieve the best pigmentation, and then lightly blending along the edges. This will help both the color and minimize any fall out from the powdery texture. On the lid, it doesn’t look chalky or powdery, though. Applied over bare lids, this shade lasted seven and a half hours well, and just after eight, it started to fade. Over a primer, I didn’t see any fading when I checked at eight hours.
