This is a beautiful shade and I first tried it years ago, and it was at least at that time an excellent superior quality eye shadow. That being said the color on me just wasn’t the fuschia/magenta kick I was looking for. It has a ballet pink finish that muted the effect too much for me. Now from what I’m seeing on here the make up for ever Orchid looks to be the same as my beloved UD fishnet but without the chrome. I can’t wait to try that!

One of my 2 or 3 favourite hightlight shades from MAC. Mine actually looks less peachy than in the photo – more yellow/beige. Even though it’s a frost, it really isn’t all that frosty or garish and it’s a super colour for the inner corner of the eye because it really brights a lot of light and brightness to that area.

Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Oily, Undertone: Yellow

I really love this shade, as it really is so shimmery and pretty. I tend to use it on the inner corners of the eyes, and it looks especially nice in bridal makeup. I really recommend it!

One of my favourite MAC eyeshadows of all time. It applies very well, and is very pigmented. It blends nicely as well, despite being a matte. I love wearing this colour, I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a matte purple eyeshadow, as I’ve found many others very disappointing.

Naked Lunch
Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Normal-to-Dry, Undertone: Neutral

When I tried this color on my lids, it was extremely patchy, super sheer, and would barely come off on my lids at all! All That Glitters is the way too go. I wish I could return or trade this color for anything different.

All That Glitters
Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Normal-to-Dry, Undertone: Neutral

I wear this color almost every single day. I love it WAAAY more than Naked Lunch, which I’ve never worn since I bought it and tried it on once. I found that Naked Lunch was chalky and not pigmented at all. All That Glitters is a beautiful champagne/gold color that looks wonderful applied all over the lid. It is buttery and smooth, easy to apply and blendable, and highly pigmented, basically everything that Naked Lunch is not.

When I first swatched this product, I thought it looked terrible and chalky and not pigmented at all. For some reason, I bought it anyways. When I applied it over my Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer (which I use as an eyeshadow primer), it looked pigmented and beautiful! It is still a little chalky and hard to blend, but it does look beautiful. The color was too hard not to pass up. I wear it all the time!

I really, really wish MAC would reformulate this eyeshadow. It’s a beautiful cool-toned grey, a colour you don’t see a lot of in other brands. Unfortunately, it’s patchy on application and a pain to blend. (referring to permanent version)

What’s not to love about MAC eyeshadows – the shade range is amazing and the option to create your perfect palette is just so good! My favourite shades are club, cobalt and expensive pink!

Fiction
Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Normal-to-Dry, Undertone: Pink

Thanks to Christine showing this shadow, I got it in the recent MAC repromote and I couldn’t be happier. It’s a dark, smokey khaki green-grey-brown mix that is irresistible for someone like me, who loves neutral shadows and it has a lovely golden-green sheen to it. When it was discontinued a few years ago, a reviewer at MUA wondered why MAC was keeping Greensmoke (beautiful but disappointing, I have to agree) but discontinuing Fiction. Now that I have Fiction, I understand exactly what she meant. This should be permanent.

Tempting
Skin Tone: Dark Tan, Skin Type: Oily, Undertone: Yellow

I love Tempting for my brown smokey eyes and whenever I wear golds and bronzes. It is a rich cocoa color maybe a bit deeper than cocoa. I love it. The only problem it has is the fallout which isn’t a lot and it just happens when applying, so just do your eyes first and then your face makeup and you’ll be good.

Patina
Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Normal-to-Dry, Undertone: Pink

Like Julia, the previous reviewer, I find that Patina really shines (pun only partly intended) when layered over Powersurge Eye Kohl (a pencil I never thought I’d want or need!). Patina is such a terrific shade for so many looks and if, like me, you don’t generally go in for anything flamoyant, you will find Patina a great shadow to own.

One of my go-to/every day shades. I got this at the urging of my daughter and it has become one of my most reached-for eye shadows. Pairs well with Naked Lunch, All That Glitters and so many other shadows. Works well as a lid colour or in the crease. Versatile and reliable.

Club
Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Normal-to-Dry, Undertone: Pink

Talk about versatile. Is Club dark green? Brown? Grey/brown? Red/brown? All of the aforementioned? This shadow is (almost) unique and changes colour depending on how much you blend it, what parts/planes of the eye you blend it onto and even what other shadows you pair it with (if you decide to pair it with anything). It’s one of MAC’s terrific “duo-chrome” shadows and while it’s a bit of an “exteme” colour, I’ve also found it very wearable (and I am well past my first flush of youth!)
