Goldbit

MAC Goldbit Eyeshadow ($16.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a light, golden peach with warm undertones and flecks of gold glitter. It has a Lustre finish, where coverage is (by design) sheerer and the finish has larger glitter particles. I found it had more semi-opaque pigmentation with some glitter but it was smoother and easier to use than the average Lustre eyeshadow. The consistency was soft, blendable, and sat fairly well on bare skin but some fallout occurred during initial application. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me before fading.

Kid

MAC Kid Eyeshadow ($16.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. The color payoff was opaque in a single layer, while the texture felt soft and smooth without having a lot of powderiness, yet it remained blendable during application. It lasted for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Tete-a-Tint

MAC Tete-a-tint Eyeshadow ($16.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted, light-medium brown with warm, peachy undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was smooth and velvety with a touch of powderiness; it felt slightly less silky compared to the last iteration I have of it, but it was still easy to apply to the lid and blend out along the edges. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for eight hours.

Uninterrupted

MAC Uninterrupted Eyeshadow ($16.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium brown with strong, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented and had a smooth, soft, and blendable texture that was a touch dusty in the pan, but it applied evenly to bare skin and was easy to work with on the lid. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

I picked up Goldbit last week and I really love it. I’d thought of getting Kid but I have about 5 dupes of it so, I dunno. Speaking of DUPES FOR KID, Christine, an LE Too Faced shadow called Fawned of You is in the Dupe list twice with 2 very different “comments” – one says it is warmer than Kid and the other says it’s cooler (I happen to agree with that latter comment) but it’s the SAME shadow (not the same name but 2 different versions in 2 different releases….it’s the same shadow from the same Holiday palette). Can the 2 listings somehow be “blended” into one?

I think it’s a good idea to bring back favourite shades, as long as the new version is as good as, if not better than the original.
These are pretty good staple shades and for mattes + MAC, they are excellent.

I’ve never understood why they didn’t make Moth Brown permanent (and now would have been the perfect time to do this) – it has always been so sought-after when it’s been available so it seems it would sell well and be a natural one to add to the permanent line.

I can almost remember vividly (and I’m shocked by my memory) the old-school `What’s in my MAC single eyeshadow palette` videos and Kid being there… along with Cork, All That Glitters, Soba, Sable, Antiqued, Club…
It’s nice to see them back. I personally won’t be purchasing them soon, since Goldbit is close enough to Naked Lunch, Kid is almost identical to Sculpt (which is the sculpting powder I use regularly for `contouring`, but I also throw it quite often in my crease), while Tete-a-Tint and Uninterrupted won’t suit me (I look sick if there’s too much peach or yellow or orange around my eyes).

Bought all 4 last week! Kid being a backup so I can now use it again with sheer abandon! Did a rather simple look Saturday using Tete-A-Teint as my transition, Goldbit as I mid-lid halo, and Uninterrupted on inner and outer sides of my lid and meeting in an arc. Surprised at how much Tete-A-Teint darkened upon being buffed in! Goldbit is gorgeous and lighter than I had expected, still love it though. But I loved this very simple earthy eye look a lot.
