Me, too! I don’t wanna buy it as it’s expensive here but it looks like there’s no nice dupe other than Inglot’s 🙁 the aquas in my 120 palette aren’t pigmented enough….and i’d have to buy a palette to get the inglot one. I hate that i have to spend money on that too). As for aquadisiac, I got a Flormar dupe of it. I just love all shades of blue-green, light, medium or dark <3

Funny how my eyes lit onto this post for the love of greens, but I do not reach for them very often. If, I do, I tend to grab army and olive greens which actually appear like neutrals on me. Thanks to my discovery of peach corrector, I can wear deeper blue greens which used to be a complete no no due to under eye discoloration.

Can’t say MAC greens are well represented in my collection. Although I remember wearing Humid ad nauseum one summer. When was that? early 2000’s?

Greensmoke and Humid are soo gorgeous! I have something very similar to Humid but need to buy greensmoke!The swatch gallery is so cool (I know its been around for a while..I just never commented on it!) – congrats to you and Sean on thinking of and building that out. I’m a (software) engineer so I know the amount of work and time that would have gone into building something like that – kudos to you guys!!

I have Aqua, Aquadisiac, Bottled Green, Humid and Kelly! Aquadisiac is such a gorgeous color and I have not used it in awhile! Looking at Greensmoke is making me want to B2M for it!

Hey, Allison! I don’t own the other two, but I love using Aquadisiac as a pop of color in an overall neutral look! I most recently used it in a look where I had MAC’s Tan Pigment on the lid with UD Buck and ABC Gum blending that out with Aquadisiac on the lower lashline.

Thank you, Miss J, for the suggestion! Great idea. I have a cream shadow that is pretty close to Aquadisiac and it’s been languishing because I’m not sure what to do with it. I will definitely try it with a neutral eye for a color pop along the lower lashline.

I have Greensmoke and Aquadisiac, I’ve not used them in ages I just swatched them and I really love Greensmoke. Think I must use it today. I have a few other MAC greens I like, De Menthe, Sprout and Lucky Green. Some of them might be DC.
Green is a fun colour. It’s nice to go away from my usual pink/purples every now and then.
Humid is a shade I must take a closer look at. Very pretty.

I have Aquadisiac and adore it. Christine, you mentioned that Bottle Green is your favorite. I like it, and I intend to purchase it, but I’m worried about the texture, because based on the swatch, it doesn’t look as great as Kelly–ok, Kelly is satin, and Bottle Green is matte. Is Bottle Green powdery, thin, or dry?

Thank you so much for your quick and so helpful reply, dear! Exactly! For me, this shade is perfect to crease. I’ll pick it up as soon as possible, and within this month.
You are exceptional and gentle.
May God bless you!

Greensmoke is a shadow I got years ago and hardly use because while it looks so lovely in the pan, like so many lustre shadows, it doesn’t translate as well on the eyes but still I love the look of it and use it from time to time, often over a base. Humid is a favourite for fall, and I often pair it with Wedge to sort of tone it down.
