MAC Daydreaming Eyeshadow

MAC Daydreaming Eyeshadow ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “frosted mid-tone coral [with a] veluxe pearl [finish].” It’s a brightened, coral-red with a smooth, frosted sheen and warm, orange-y undertones. Guerlain Terra Azzurra #3 is lighter, less intense. Urban Decay Free Love is lighter and has a golden sheen. MAC Raving Mad is more subdued, less warm-toned. MAC Spicy Smoke is darker, redder, and it is most similar when blended out.

Daydreaming is an online-exclusive from the MAC x Hayley Williams collaboration, which is supposed to launch on April 9th (but hardcore fans may want to start stalking a little earlier). It had good color payoff, and it blended to a smooth finish, but the texture was slightly dry (and not quite as buttery/dense as the very best of the veluxe pearl formula). Based on my experience with MAC eyeshadows, they typically wear around eight hours with no creasing and little to no fading (and shades like this tend not to fade; it’s only the more powdery, sheerer shades that sometimes do).
