MAC Green Room Eyeshadow
MAC Green Room Eyeshadow ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone teal [with a Satin finish].” It’s a cool-toned, medium-dark green-teal with a mostly matte finish. There’s a very, very subtle sheen to it, but applied, it really looks and acts like a matte finish eyeshadow. Giorgio Armani Iridescent Jade (LE) is more shimmery. NARS Misfit #2 (P, $24.00) is brighter. MAC Newly Minted (DC, $15.00) is warmer. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Turquoise (P, $14.00) is brighter, lighter. Make Up For Ever #53 (P, $20.00) is greener. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
The texture of the powder was thin, slightly dry, though it had decent to good color payoff and wasn’t too difficult to blend. It didn’t seem to stain my lids while worn, which was nice, as a lot of the deeper teal eyeshadows have a tendency to do so. I wish the texture was denser, because I think it would make the product easier to work with and more pigmented. Applied, it wore well for almost eight hours before fading.
