This is SUCH a beautiful colour! It's easy to apply so it goes on really opaquely without much effort, and stays bold without fading over time. It's versatile, as it can be used to create a blue smokey eye, and can also be used in various ways in combination with other shades (i.e. to deepen the crease, on the undereye) depending on the look. I've seen other brands attempt similar shades, but nothing comes close to this, as the glitter does not feel rough or uncomfortable, but applies smoothly. I feel like the picture itself speaks 1000 words (just look at that colour!), but I thought I would reinforce it with my personal experience.

A really great staple shade that can be used to highlight the inner corners and brow bone, as well as on the lid. I personally LOVE this as a highlight, it really opens up the eyes. It's a great smooth texture so application could not be easier, and it's also buildable so you can wear it as a lid colour. You can apply it quite sheerly so you don't notice the gold/yellowness so much, or you can apply it more opaquely so it's more noticeable. I've used it in the past on the lid with Going Bananas and Chrome Yellow to create a gradient, and it looked so pretty! This shows how versatile the shade is, despite being primarily a hightlight shade.

A great shade that will suit a lot of different people. It's a really nice balance of gold and bronze so it can be paired with quite a wide range of other eyeshadows depending on the desired look. It's really nice for darker more dramatic looks, too. It's so pretty just to look at, and applies opaquely without having to work particularly hard. It's a really nice colour to have for people who aren't necessarily into wearing colour, but want something a bit more dramatic than neutrals. The only negative I can think of is that the texture is slightly rough when you run your finger over it because of the glitter/metallic aspect of it, but by no means does that make it uncomfortable to wear on the lids.

A highly pigmented and smooth eyeshadow that needs very little building for full opacity. There is absolutely no 'skipping' or pulling on the eyelid because it goes on so softly. As a shimmer it's very easy to blend out, and also looks really beautiful when used to deepen the crease. The colour is just so pretty, and versatile. It's dark enough to be used alone to create a green smokey eye, but is also great as part of a multi-eyeshadow look. It's an absolute staple for me.

One of my very favourite eyeshadows not only by MAC, but on the whole. It is extremely pigmented, which is wonderful because the colour is amazing. As someone who loves wearing bright coloured matte eyeshadows it's great to discover ones that apply really easily and aren't an effort to build or blend. Naturally blending is a little harder than if it were a shimmery shade, but it's not so much more work that you wish you hadn't bothered. I heard a rumour it might be discontinued, but it's almost exactly the same as Electric Eel (though from what I remember EE is slightly more work to achieve opacity).

One of the few MAC eyeshadows that unfortunately does not meet the standards I'm used to from them. I can't really think of much positive to say about it other than the colour looks quite pretty in the pan and the glitter particles don't fall out a whole lot. That does tend to misguide me into trying it out again only to be disappointed once more. The reasons I don't like this particular eyeshadow are that it's hard to get the colour to apply very well or evenly. It is buildable, but this makes the colour become a dirtier version of what you expect, and it no longer looks the pretty colour it is in the pan, and basically ruins the eyeshadow look.

Farasha is a lovely shade of orange. It goes on smoothly and easily and was a nice contrast for my blue eyes. I like it with reddish corals and yellows for a summery sunset look.

Such a pretty shade of coral. It's not too red, pink, or orange, and it doesn't make me look puffy. Love it with yellows and golds! The formula was good, not outstanding, but no application problems for me.

Gorgeous color, but a little powdery. I wouldn't say it's hard to apply, but it takes a little work. It's well-pigmented but builds to a really dark, multi-dimensional finish.

Patina is one the most interesting and unique shades. It is not quite gold, but not quite brown either. Patina does tend to go on sheer, but it is buildable. If you use a flat shader brush like the MAC 239, then it is more easy to get the product opaque. I have also found that Patina looks phenomenal when layered over MAC Powersurge pencil. The Powersurge brings out more of the complexity of Patina. Patina lasts all day without creasing on me as long as I use an eyeshadow primer, but that is usually the standard for me with any eyeshadow.

Lucky Green is probably my all time favorite Mac eyeshadows and a perfect example of what makes Mac eyeshadows so popular. This color is very flattering and very versatile. There is a luminous quality to it that just pops and is so beautiful.

I absolutely love this color. Any green eyed ladies should definitely check it out. It looks lovely blended in with a dark maroon/burgundy in the crease and definitely provides a good pop of color.

I love this color for a very wearable/natural smokey eye or for jus everyday! It's so pretty especially on green eyes. Sable looks really good paired with All That Glitters.

I love this eyeshadow! It's very buildable, and perfect for brows. When I need to travel and can't take my big box makeup with my bronzer, this also makes a good bronzer. It's not perfect, it's a little too red, but when used sheerly it works. I recommend this eyeshadow. Its a very underrated product.
