MAC A Waft of Grey Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad

MAC A Waft of Grey Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad ($44.00 for 0.05 oz.) is the smoky eye quad–a mix of silver-shot white, silver, gray, and black.  I had fall out during wear with the silver and gray shades, as both were quite sparkly, but the colors themselves wore between six and eight hours.  Because it is a smoky eye quad, the colors are rather dupeable, so I would recommend looking elsewhere if you’re in the market for a silver/gray/black palette.

MAC A Sprinkle of Blues Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad

MAC A Sprinkle of Blues Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad ($44.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a cool-toned mix centered around blue. It contained a white with a blue sheen, muted navy blue, medium-dark blue, and a blackened navy. This quad was horrifying across the board–dry, stiff, difficult to blend, splotchy application, fast to fade, and utter garbage. I’ve worked with all six of the quads released in the collection, and none were as frustrating as this one–this performed so much worse than the others; it didn’t even apply halfway decently. It cannot be used damp; the only hope it has is being applied over a slightly tacky, white base. I don’t know why this quad differed so greatly compared to the others, which, with work and a particular technique, I could apply and it would look fine on.

MAC A Party of Pastels Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad

MAC A Party of Pastels Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad ($44.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a cooler-toned pink-themed palette. It is a lighter alternative to A Medley of Mauves. The palette contains a bright silver, light pink, pinky-lilac, and a plum. I noticed significant fall out with this palette, particularly owing to the silver and the plum shade, which had very sparkly finishes (the other two were more pearly/smooth). Oddly enough, the actual colors of both of those shades lasted longer than the two more pearled ones! After eight hours, there was just a smidgen of fading with the silver and plum shades, but more noticeable fading with the other two.

MAC A Medley of Mauves Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad

MAC A Medley of Mauves Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad ($44.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a cooler-toned pink and purple-themed palette. It consisted of a light-medium pink, pinky-purple, plum, and medium brown. There was noticeable fading after seven hours of wear with all the shades, and I had a fair amount of sparkle fall out underneath my eye. I had higher hopes, given that the two I tested the day before had done surprisingly well on wear. If you’re still drawn to this palette, I would recommend using a slightly tacky base with them to improve wear, minimize fall out, and improve blendability.

MAC A Harvest of Greens Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad

MAC A Harvest of Greens Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad ($44.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a warm-toned quad with earthy shades. It contains a medium brown, olive brown, olive green, and a medium-dark brown. The darkest brown shade was most troublesome, as the texture was drier and stiffer, which resulted in poorer color payoff even when applied damp, and then it was difficult to blend out. The olive brown had similar issues but to a lesser degree, so it was more workable. The olive green was the easiest shade to work with. The medium brown and olive green shades wore well for almost eight hours on me, while the olive brown had some fading after seven hours and the dark brown was noticeably faded after six hours of wear.

MAC A Glimmer of Gold Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad

MAC A Glimmer of Gold Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad ($44.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a warm-toned quad that features a gold, light copper, medium-dark copper, and warm taupe. I was disappointed that two of the shades were so, so similar to each other–if this was a palette of twenty eyeshadows, it would be easier to overlook, but when you only have four, it’s completely unnecessary. The wear was surprising (note, I applied all four with a damp brush over bare eyelids), as three of the four shades wore fairly well for eight hours, while the darker copper shade had some fading at the eight-hour mark. I didn’t notice any fall out during wear. The textures were soft but slightly powdery, and applying them dry worked best if I was applying over a good base, as they had a tough time sticking and adhering to bare skin or a more matte eyeshadow primer.
