MAC Cheer Me On Eyeshadow
MAC Cheer Me On Eyeshadow

MAC Cheer Me On Eyeshadow ($16.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “bright intense orange.” It’s a medium-dark, yellowed orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had decent to good pigmentation with a soft, thin consistency that felt dry but didn’t actually look dry on the lid. It is a shade that I think requires a base or eyeshadow primer for best intensity and application, as it tends to look somewhat faded on. The color lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Zoeva Through the Window (PiP, ) is darker, more muted (95% similar). Anastasia B1 (Norvina Mini Vol. 2) (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Bratty (P, $4.50) is more muted (95% similar). MAC Rule (P, $17.00) is more muted (95% similar). Kat Von D Analogue (LE, ) is cooler (95% similar). Colour Pop Cannonball (LE, ) is cooler (90% similar).

MAC Everyone’s Darling Eyeshadow ($16.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “deep red burgundy.” It’s a muted, dark burgundy with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture had the same thinner, slightly dry/dusty feel to it that Cheer Me On had, which yielded semi-opaque color payoff. It was buildable in practice, and it blended out better than anticipated, though it wasn’t the easiest shade to use. On me, the color wore well for eight hours before fading. Makeup Geek Cherry Cola (DC, $6.00) is cooler (95% similar). Colour Pop Strike It (LE, $4.50) is cooler (95% similar). NARS Grand Palais #2 (DC, $25.00) is darker (95% similar).

MAC Well-Behaved Eyeshadow ($16.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as an “intense red orange.” It’s a medium-dark, coral-orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightly dusty texture that was fairly blendable but could have been smoother and easier to work with. This shade started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. Colour Pop Cut Outs (P, $4.50) is lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever S742 Tomato (DC, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Slim Fit (LE, ) is cooler (90% similar). Kat Von D Mandala (LE, ) is darker (90% similar).

Mac really needs to start being more innovative. Their Vamplify line is fun but im tired of their collections with a few eyeshadows and lipsticks. So boring.

Thanks for your thoughts,.org this collection Christine. Is this really only launching at counters & FS MAC stores? It won’t be launching online? Do you know if this collection will be at Nordstrom’s & Macy’s? Sorry for the interrogation, just trying to figure out when & where this collection will be available. Thank you!

I want Everyone’s Darling, but since I have Sketch, it won’t be something I’ll go out of my way to acquire. It also reminds me a lot of NARS New York.

Whew!!! I am super happy that I put that MAC quad together last week! It contained Rule, Red Brick, Deep Damson and Bamboo, so I have great, even better quality dupes of these 3! Yayyy!!!

I don’t know about anyone else but I would never wear those colors. I would have preferred yhe Cinderella collection be brought back instead of this

I like the colours a lot and I had high hopes for these eyeshadows. I really wanted Everyone’s Darling, but Ilike my matte eyeshadows to be really easy to work with, as I find matte’s to be unforgiving and needing a lot of work if they are not.
So, I’ll not get any of these.

As a NC50 girl, I’ve used Rule and Red Brick as transition shades for eons, so these LE colors are not interesting to me. I like my Sugarpill Heartbreaker palette much better for bright orange and red e/s. However, since last September I’ve slowly focused on building up my MUFE palette, so I’m more interested in the MUFE dupes you mentioned (lol).

I didn’t realise these were all matte finish. Might have a play with them if they show up in my local counter, but not fussed if they don’t, either. Well-Behaved is my favourite – although the heading of “Well-Behaved Dupes” looks really funny!

How close would you say Cheer Me On and Rule REALLY are? I love Rule but am having a major orange fling lately…

Thank you for all your amazing help!!! 🙂
