MAC Phresh Out Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette Review, Photos, Swatches

MAC Phresh Out Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Phresh Out Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette ($44.00 for 0.14 oz.) contains five eyeshadows. If you’re not familiar with the newer Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palettes, they feature a newer eyeshadow formula that can be used wet or dry. The range tends to lean towards the more frosted, metallic, and glittery, though it technically can range from matte to glitter. This particular palette is the warmer-toned of the two and has two particularly glittery shades in it. If you are not a fan of shimmer or frost, you’ll want to stay clear of this one. If you love high-shine, shimmery, metallic finishes, then you may quite enjoy the formula.  Phresh Out has two shades that are particularly glittery, so wear was poor with fall out occurring throughout the wear and some fading with the first shade as well.

Phresh Out #1 is a pale, golden beige with a frosted finish. It had decent color payoff when applied dry, and it was smoother and slightly more pigmented when applied damp. Disney by Sephora Sea Shells (LE) is slightly yellower. Urban Decay Polyester Bride (P, $18.00) is similar. MAC Dazzlelight (P, $15.00) is less frosted. Inglot #395 (P, $6.00) is more beige, less frosted, more metallic. See comparison swatches.

Phresh Out #2 is a glittery, warm-toned copper with a golden sheen and copper micro-glitter/sparkle. It had a slightly dry, kind of chunky consistency that was best applied damp, as it yielded more color payoff and helped to bind the shadow together. Too Faced Prancer (LE) is darker. Sleek MakeUP Sunset #10 (P, $9.99) is similar. MAC Creative Copper (LE, $15.00) is more golden. Maybelline Breaking Bronze (P, $6.99) is more metallic. Disney by Sephora All Aglow (LE) is more muted. Disney by Sephora Cosmic (LE) is similar. theBalm Manic Maribel (LE, $16.00) is less glittery. Urban Decay Penny Lane (LE, $18.00) is similar but less glittery. See comparison swatches.

Phresh Out #3 is a pink-tinged beige with a glittery finish. Applied dry, it’s just a sheer glittery mess, but applied damp, it binds together better so there’s some color as well as glitter. LORAC Nude (P) is less glittery. MAC Love Connection #1 (P, $21.00) is a bit darker. MAC Light Touch (P, $21.00) is lighter. MAC Snow Season (LE, $21.00) is darker. MAC Star Crystal (LE, $32.50) is pinker. Dior Fairy Golds #1 (LE) is less glittery. See comparison swatches.

Phresh Out #4 is a taupe with a stronger gray/purple cast with subtle warm, rosy brown undertones and a frosted sheen. It had good color payoff both wet and dry, and the finish becomes more sheen-like when applied damp. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #1 (P) is similar. MAC Hypnotizing (LE, $15.00) is a touch lighter. MAC Stolen Moment (LE, $21.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

Phresh Out #5 is a dark brown with subtle cool undertones and a satiny sheen. It had nice pigmentation both dry and wet, though applied damp had a richer, deeper color. LORAC Espresso (P) is darker, more matte. Dior Night Golds #3 (LE) is darker. Urban Decay Busted (LE, $18.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

The MAC x RiRi Hearts MAC Holiday Collection launches in December. I don’t have a specific date yet, and as soon as I do, you’ll see me update the collection’s official information post. Your best bet is to catch me on Twitter or Facebook, as I usually make a mention on social media first 🙂

Totally understand. I was told the date by an employee at MAC when I missed out on the red lipstick in previous RiRi collection and she told me not to worry because it would be out in the next collection and looked up the date to let me know when it would be out.

I’m just REALLY tired of all things that I have to use wet to get max performance. Why can’t you just have a quality product that I can use and enjoy without all the extra fluff involved?

I bought one of these Veluxe palettes when they first came out – Greensmoke I believe – and hated everything about it. Absolutely puketastic. Ended up returning it. Will not be buying buying anything from MAC’s crappy holiday/winter collections. Dior, Guerlain & Chanel are getting my cash this year.
