Green Machine with Jealousy Wakes Look

Green Machine with Jealousy Wakes Look

I received an email this morning that MAC just received the product samples for Jealousy Wakes, so I hope to have them in my hot hands tomorrow. ¬†As soon as I do, you know I’ll be swatching up a storm! ūüôā

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof all over the lid and above the crease with the 242 to lay down your eyeshadow base.  Apply Juxt eyeshadow on the inner third of the lid with the 239, then pat Jealousy Wakes eyeshadow on the outer two thirds of the lid.  Lightly blend Juxt by patting and lightly pulling the color over the middle of the lid to create a yellower green in the center.  Bring Jealousy Wakes into the crease by pressing the 239 into the crease horizontally, and then darkening the crease with Bottle Green eyeshadow with the 222.  Tap Juxt lightly above the crease to soften the edge, and then highlight beneath the brow with Trench eyeshadow. Next, apply Deviant liner on the lower lash line, and then smudge with Jealousy Wakes on the outer third and Juxt on the inner two-thirds. Coat lashes with Film Noir mascara to finish the look.

For cheeks, apply Betty Lou-Manizer on the apples of the cheeks and sweep towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply Liberte Rouge Coco Shine for a complementing lip.

Inglot Matte Eyeshadows in #382, 362, 319, 359, 356 (Reds & Pinks)


Inglot Matte Eyeshadow Palette #1

Inglot Matte Eyeshadows in #382, 362, 319, 359, 356 (Reds & Pinks)

Inglot’s Matte Eyeshadows ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) are what they’re most well-known for, given the buzz I’ve seen in the past. ¬†I’m missing a few that I expect will be in this range (specifically, one pink and two oranges), so I left blank spots for them that way I do not have to rearrange everything when I eventually buy them.

  • 382 is a medium-dark blue-based red with a matte finish. ¬†This shade seems comparable to Make Up For Ever #158 (slightly brighter) and #99 (bluer undertones).
  • 362 is a bright, just-darker-than bubblegum pink with a matte finish.
  • 319 is a pale cotton candy pink with blue undertones and a matte finish.
  • 359 is a muted rosy beige with a matte finish.
  • 356 is a lightened rose-tinted beige with a matte finish.

These are really soft mattes; they have a really buttery feel to them, where you can feel the powder loosening as you swatch. ¬†They aren’t particularly powdery, though they’ll kick up a little dust if you are heavy handed with your brush. ¬†A little product goes a long way, so there’s no reason to jab at the eyeshadow with a brush (something you might have done with past matte eyeshadows). ¬†The softness and give allow these to apply smoothly and evenly; there is no patchiness or drag with these.

The only downside to these is if you really pack on the color, you might find that it fades (ever-so-marginally) after eight hours; it’s a very minimal drawback, resulting in 0.5 point reduction in longevity. ¬†Overall, these five shades had excellent color payoff and lovely textures. ¬†Even the lightest, #356, applied smoothly and never looked chalky.

MAC Eyeshadow Swatches – Reds, Pinks, Oranges


MAC Beauty Marked Eyeshadow

MAC Eyeshadow Swatches – Reds, Pinks, Oranges

These are swatches only! ūüôā ¬†I am in the process of re-swatching a ton of products, because the Swatch Gallery is designed so you can compare individual products, so all of the swatches have to be done in a way that each swatch can be photographed and shown individually. ¬†I’m going through various brands, so there is some variety as I journey through it all, but here are fourteen MAC eyeshadow swatches, along with my descriptions of the shades and any notes on performance if it was below average. ¬†Unless noted otherwise, shades are part of the permanent range.

Beauty Marked is a blackened burgundy with multicolored shimmer. It has a velvet finish. It’s also a real pain in the behind to use, because it tends to apply unevenly. A lot of the sparkle doesn’t translate as well on the lid as it does in a swatch.
Cranberry is a berried red with a frost finish.
Post Haste is a pinked red with a Matte2 finish. It has been discontinued. It is slightly darker and redder than Passionate.
Passionate is a raspberry pink with a matte finish.
Sushi Flower is a medium-dark pink with a satin finish. It’s hard to build-up color and applies rather sheer.
Swish is a lilac shimmered pink with a frost finish.
Da Bling is a medium pink with subtle yellow undertones. It has a veluxe pearl finish.
Rose is a mauve-tinged pink with a slightly frosted finish. I have no idea what the official finish is, as it is now discontinued and was only a PRO shade before then (there is nothing on the label of mine that indicates the finish). My guess is frost.
Pen ‘n’ Pink is a pale, pastel pink with a Matte2 finish. It has been discontinued.
Coppering is a rich copper with a veluxe pearl finish. ¬†It is one of MAC’s best-textured eyeshadows.
Red Brick is a dirty orange with a matte finish. It’s darker than Orange.
Expensive Pink is a dirty rose with peach and gold. It has a veluxe finish. It’s one of MAC”s more complex shades.
Free to Be is a coral-pink with a matte finish.
Orange is a medium-dark orange with a matte finish. It is part of the PRO line.

Overall, a few of these are excellent eyeshadows (like Cranberry, Coppering, and Expensive Pink), while some are total duds (Beauty Marked, Sushi Flower). Several of these have matte finishes, and my experience with MAC’s matte formula is they tend to perform infinitely better on the lid than when swatched. They are a drier matte, and they’re not a buttery or powdery formula, so you don’t end up with any fall out or fading, but they can be finicky.

Swatch Gallery: Recent Update


Swatch Gallery: Recent Updates

The Swatch Gallery now contains all previous lipgloss lip swatches, as well as numerous cheek products (blushes, bronzers, highlighters).  The eyeshadow section is up in part for some brands (but not all products have been included, even if the brand is listed) and is still very much a work-in-progress.

We are in the process of re-swatching the majority of eyeshadows (along with several cheek products) so that they will work with the Swatch Gallery format–which means single swatches of individual products so that they can easily be compared. ¬†We are doing our best to ensure both accurate and consistent lighting, and this is also a major reason why we are determined to re-swatch a great deal of products so that the comparisons will be helpful. ¬†(The quality of photos in early 2010 doesn’t even compare to the ones I take now, boo!)

Remember, you can drag the images around to create your own order, which will allow you to compare swatches side-by-side!
