MAC Beiges, Whites, Highlighter Eyeshadow Swatches

This finishes up all of the swatches I have of permanent eyeshadows – I will try to purchase the shades I do not own soon and get those swatches up as well.

Dazzlelight is a soft beige white with a hint of warmth. It has a veluxe pearl finish. The color payoff is good with a soft, smooth texture. It is similar to Bare Escentuals Serendipitous. It’s kind of like MAC Brule in a frosted form.
Mylar is an ivory white with a mostly matte finish. It has a satin finish. It can look a little chalky because of its finish and color, though the payoff is good and application is smooth. It is similar to Inglot #351.
Phloof! is a light pinky-beige with a frost finish. It has good color payoff and applies smoothly. It is a little less warm compared to theBalm Hiii-Yaaa!.
Vanilla is a soft, creamy light beige with a nearly matte finish. It has a velvet finish. It’s very soft and easy to work with and has good pigmentation. It is similar to Inglot #353.
Vellum is an iridescent white with bluish-violet shimmer-sheen. It has a lustre finish. The color payoff is decent but not great, though the uniqueness of the shade tends to make it worth the effort.
Vex is a grayish-beige-pink with a tinge of olive-green to it. It has a frost finish. It has good color payoff, and it’s one of the more unique shades by MAC. Bare Escentual’s Urban Nature cream eyeshadow is similar.

White Frost is a shimmery soft white with poor color payoff, though it still has a smooth feel. It has a frost finish.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

My Vanilla eyeshadow is absolutely terrible to work with, incredibly chalky and doesn’t blend. I must’ve got one from a bad batch 🙁

I was going to say the exact same thing. I only have four MAC shadows…and Shroom is one of them. Other than Satin Taupe, the other two colors are worthless (remaining colors not white).

I’ve got 3 of the shadows you’ve swatched – Vex, Dazzlelight and Phloof – and I love them all- they are truly great shadows. I’ve also got Shroom (wouldn’t repurchase), Orb and Unbasic White (LE) and use them all. I’m surprised you don’t have Ricepaper in the grouping, Christine. I know it used to be your “go to” highlighter (before Burberry Trench!).

Needless to say my fave is Vanilla, though Dazzlelight’s not bad either (since it’s more shimmery and less frosty!). vex does look cool though, but it’s too frosty for me and i think the undertone of it wouldn’t work well for me
