MAC Flamingo Park Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Flamingo Park Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a mix of springtime pastels and bold brights. It’s not perfect, but it still surprised me, as they went on fairly well with decent or better pigmentation and blended out without major issues. In general, I find MAC eyeshadows perform a little better applied to the eye than initially swatched. It’s probably one of the more interesting palettes/quads MAC has put out in awhile, as they’ve done quite a few neutral-like ones in recent memory. I think the majority of the issues I experienced with the shades (detailed below) will be solved by using primer. I wish Sushi Flower and Elegant Friend had been swapped out for better performing shades, as those are the two big duds in the palette (Naturally Fabulous builds really well, so it’s workable for most application styles).

Flounce is described as a “chalky white pink [with a Matte finish].” It’s a light, pastel pink with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth consistency that was a little thin but not dusty to work with. This shade stayed on well for seven and a half hours.

Glamour Light is described as a “soft lemon yellow [with a Satin finish].” It’s a soft, creamy yellow with a satin sheen.

Flock & Roll is described as a “light pastel pink [with a Matte finish].” It’s a light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery consistency that blended out well but didn’t look powdery on the skin. The color wore well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably. MAC Sugar Snack (LE, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Sushi Flower is described as a “pinky coral with pink shimmer [with a Satin finish].” It’s a muted, medium pink with warm undertones and a very subtle sheen. It was powdery and prone to sheering out as a result. The color payoff was semi-sheer at best, and without a white or tacky base, it didn’t get better with building or layering. On me, it wore for seven and a half hours before fading. MAC Fotos Y Recuerdos (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Pretty Dainty (LE, $23.00) is darker (90% similar).

Bird’s Eye View is described as a “hot magenta [with a Satin finish].” It’s an intense, bright fuchsia pink with cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. The pigmentation was incredibly rich and opaque, while the texture was smooth, silky, and blendable. It felt more like a Matte2 finish than a satin or matte finish. The color wore for eight and a half hours with minimal fading. Dior Bow (887) (P, $29.00) is more muted (95% similar). Kat Von D Swoon (LE) is lighter (95% similar).

Elegant Friend is described as a “dirty lavender [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark, silvery lavender with a frosted finish. The texture was slightly dry and dusty, so it would benefit greatly from a primer, as it doesn’t stick as well to bare skin on its own. It was blendable but only because it sheered out. The color wore well for seven and a half hours. MAC Time to Tango (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek Rebel (P, $6.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

Lancome Zip Me Up (P, $19.00) is darker, more shimmery (85% similar). MAC Pearled Earth (P, $16.00) is warmer, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Naturally Fabulous is described as a “warm mid-tone brown [with a Matte finish].” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark brown with warm, reddish tones and a matte finish. The texture was soft but powdery, so the eyeshadow blended out well on the skin but required building in order to achieve true-to-pan color. It started to fade after eight hours of wear. Anastasia Chocolate (P, $12.00) is warmer (95% similar). Coloured Raine Chocolate (P, $6.99) is darker (95% similar). MAC Ground Brown (P, $16.00) is darker (95% similar).

Weirdly Wonderful is described as a “royal blue with light blue pearl [with a Veluxe finish].” It’s a bold, bright, medium-dark blue with fine, blue sparkle. The texture is really dense, almost like a very packed-in cream product, and it had good pigmentation but the texture made blending harder. The edges always looked a little dry and jagged unless paired with something softer and more powdery to help blend it out. It stained the lid as well, just as a heads up. On me, it lasted for eight hours before creasing slightly. NYX Kiss in Casablanca (P, $4.50) is less shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Nile (LE) is lighter, less shimmery (95% similar). Sephora Diving in Australia (P, $10.00) is darker, more shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Nebula (LE, $21.00) is darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Luckfully (LE, $5.00) is darker (90% similar).
