MAC Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Quad Review, Photos, Swatches

Desert Dusk

MAC Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Quad ($33.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that contains two mattes and two shimmers with three shades being more neutral in hue (the fourth shade is a pop of blue). It was a decent quad, and I suspect that some will love the inclusion of the blue shade while others will find it doesn’t contribute to a cohesive look.

Indian Moon

Indian Moon is a light-medium, peachy gold with strong, warm undertones and a metallic finish. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer with a smooth, creamy texture that was blendable and easy to work with. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Shell Peach

Shell Peach is a medium, peachy coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had nearly opaque color payoff with a soft, lightly powdery texture that was easy to blend but did not apply as evenly as desired without a primer underneath as it was thinner in texture. It started to fade on me after seven hours of wear.

Natural Brown

Natural Brown is a muted, medium-dark brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigentation that was buildable to full coverage with a second or third layer. The texture was soft, a touch powdery but not prone to fallout, and blendable on my lid. It wore well for eight hours on me.

Hopper Blue

Hopper Blue is a bright, periwinkle blue with cool undertones and a frosted finish. It had good color payoff, though it wasn’t opaque without a primer. The texture was slightly drier and a bit loose to the touch, which contributed to the issues with pigmentation. It was fairly blendable and stayed on well for seven and a half hours on me.
