MAC Greenluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette
MAC Greenluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as shades of “light peach, bright champagne with pearl, dark olive, blackened green with gold pearl and deep forest green with pearl.” Greenluxe is not really as green as you’d expect, so if you were wary, you might still like this but if you are a fiend for green, you’ll be missing those. #2 and #4 were the two that were very fall-out prone. I wore this palette on one eye, and after nine hours of wear, there is no creasing, but there is a noticeable amount of fall out–the sparkles in this are finer, so they’re not as large or as visible as glitter would be. I did experience fading with #4 and #5 that was noticeable after seven and a half hours of wear.
Greenluxe #1 is a warm-toned beige with a pearly sheen. It was semi-sheer applied dry and semi-opaque applied wet. This shade is also very similar to the palest shades in Smokeluxe and Brownluxe. MAC Dew is more shimmery. MAC Sahara Dust is similar. MAC Glamour Light is also similar. MAC Preferred Blonde is lighter, more shimmery. Benefit Call My Bluff is darker, less shimmery. Inglot #355 is lighter. See comparison swatches.
Greenluxe #2 is a pale, light gold with a sparkly, metallic finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff when applied dry but was very loose/crumbly; applied wet, it smoothed out better but would do best with a pressing and crushing technique.
Disney Charming is lighter. Disney Sand in the GLass is warmer. Giorgio Armani #18 is a touch darker. Make Up For Ever #101 is less metallic. MAC Flicker is lighter. MAC Femme-fi is lighter, less metallic. Dior Golden Savannah #3 is cooler-toned. Bobbi Brown Gold Bar is less metallic. See comparison swatches.
Greenluxe #3 is a dirty gold, kind of pewter-like, but I’d say it’s a little warm to be a true pewter. I’m a total sucker for shades like this, though, because they can look warmer or cooler, depending on what you pair them with. Dry, it had fairly opaque color payoff but was somewhat powdery. Wet, it was smoother, sparkly without being too glittery. Chanel Moon River is darker, cream product. Urban Decay Maui Wowie is warmer, lighter. MAC Hazy Day is darker. MAC Antique Diamond is similar but a cream product. MAC Modern Pewter is darker. Guerlain Calligraphy #3 is slightly darker. bareMinerals First Class is a touch darker. bareMinerals Gold Medal is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.
Greenluxe #4 is a blackened green (more like a tint of green) and forest green and gold sparkle and shimmer. Dry, it’s a little gritty from the high sparkle content, and applied wet, it does apply more smoothly with a richer base color, but it still needs to be layered and packed on a bit to get good coverage. Giorgio Armani #25 is greener. Urban Decay Snare is lighter. Milani Melange is warmer, browner. MAC Smutty Green is greener. Estee Lauder Cyber Green is similar but less sparkly. See comparison swatches.
Greenluxe #5 is a reddish brown with a teal duochrome finish. Dry, it looks warmer and browner, while wet it takes on a more dominant teal coloring. MAC Woodsmoke is darker. MAC I’ve Got a Crush On You is slightly lighter. Shades like MAC Blue Green pigment and MAC Club are also similar. See comparison swatches.
