MAC Rule Eyeshadow
MAC Eyeshadow Swatches – Oranges, Yellows, Golds
More MAC eyeshadow swatches for the Swatch Gallery ! I’m working my way through my “permanent” palettes (which are organized by color and house mostly permanent shades, but there are a few discontinued/limited edition shades in them) for now. I don’t own all of MAC’s permanent eyeshadows, so some shades may be missing that fall into one of the color categories.
Rule is a medium orange, not too bright or dark, with a matte finish.
Coral is an orange-coral–honestly more orange than a true coral–with a matte finish. It was a PRO shade but may have been discontinued.
Samoa Silk is a peachy orange with a veluxe finish (which looks and acts mostly like a matte).
Goldenrod is a darkened yellow with a hint of orange. It has a satin finish.
Juiced is a dirty orange with gold shimmer and a velvet finish. It is a discontinued shade.
Goldmine is a gold-shimmered yellow gold with a metallic sheen. It has a frost finish.
Bright Sunshine is a bright yellow with a frost finish. It is a PRO shade.
Bright Yellow is a muted canary yellow with a seemingly matte finish. I don’t know what the official finish of this is, and as far as I know, it was discontinued. It was a PRO shade.
Gorgeous Gold is a soft, yellowy gold with a green-blue iridescence. It has a veluxe pearl finish.
Nylon is a pale white gold with a high shine finish. It has a frost finish.
MAC’s matte finishes tend to be a harder/drier matte, which translate better in actual eyeshadow application rather than a simple swatch, but shades like Rule are excellent on both fronts. I’ve often reached for Rule when I wanted to do a sunset-themed eye look. Shades like Bright Sunshine and Nylon have stellar color payoff, while Juiced easily sheers out. Gorgeous Gold has a fun duochrome, and it works well with blues, greens, and teals.
