Must-Have MAC Green Eyeshadows
About the Temptalia Must-Haves Series
A series of posts showcasing must-have products from MAC Cosmetics’ permanent line of products. Selections are based on quality, universality, uniqueness amongst the line, and the like. Limited edition shades are deliberately excluded to make buying easier. Readers’ comments act as a supplement to these lists of their favorites and must-haves. You can find the entire series here.
Swimming eyeshadow is a shimmery/glitter medium green. It’s a really great staple color to have, because its lightness in color makes it versatile. The only part they could improve on is by not making it a lustre finish!
Humid eyeshadow is an absolute must-have for anyone who wants to try their hand at a smokey green eye. Humid is a rich, pigmented deep green. It’s more of a forest green than an emerald green. The finish and texture are easy to work with, making this shadow extremely blendable.
Juxt eyeshadow is a light, pastel green. It’s not a cool green, but a slightly warmed up green. It’s kind of yellow-based, which is probably why it has noticeable warmth to its tone. It makes for an excellent all-over-the-lid color or even as a subtle highlighter when using other greens.

I used Your Ladyship pigment on lid, Juxt eyeshadow on inner lid, Sumptuous Olive eyeshadow on middle of lid, Greensmoke eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Humid eyeshadow on outer lid, Juxt eyeshadow above crease, Daisychain eyeshadow on brow, Juxt eyeshadow on inner lower lash line, Sumptuous Olive eyeshadow on outer lower lash line, and Feline kohl power on lower lash line. I wore Springsheen blush with Drizzlegold beauty powder on cheeks to highlight and Sculpt sculpting powder to contour. I had Thrills lipstick with Glamoursun lipglass on my lips.
