MAC Lucky In Love Pigment
MAC Lucky In Love Pigment

MAC Lucky In Love Pigment ($23.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “shimmering light blue green” with a frost finish. It’s a subdued aqua-green with a moderate frost finish and subtle metallic sheen. Tom Ford Emerald Lust #2 is greener and darker. Giorgio Armani Ecailles Black Pearl #3 is darker. MAC Sweet & Sour is darker and greener–plus it has a gold shimmer/sheen. Make Up For Ever #302 is darker.

It’s nowhere near as frosted/metallic as Cheers My Dear, so it is more wearable across skin types, since it won’t emphasize any texture of the natural lid like a super frost can. The texture is nice; soft, finely-milled, and it applied smoothly on the skin. The real problem with this shade was it wasn’t as pigmented as the other shades–it was somewhat sheer dry and then still a bit sheer even when applied wet/damp. I typically get around eight hours of wear with MAC’s pigments and only see some slight fading (no primer).

In many ways, I expected that this shade was going to be the better of the four, but the lack of color payoff was disappointing!

    i bought this and i just dont know how to wear it without being soo overpowering

    • I’ve been pairing it with just a blending color on the crease (like UD’s Tease or MAC Soft Brown) and I’ve found it looks lovely paired with Satin Taupe!
