MAC Wonder Woman: Lady Justice Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Lady Justice EYESHADOW QUAD ($40.00 for 0.20 oz.) includes four shades of eyeshadow: Lady Justice (bright silver with white pearl), Insurmountable (dirty blue grey), Deep Truth (true dark blue), and Bold Babe (deep metal blue with white pearl).

  • Lady Justice is a silvery-white shimmered shade. It doesn’t really have a base color, just lots of the silver-white shimmer. A little messy–doesn’t quite hold together. This is a frost finish. It’s similar to Forgery or Filament.
  • Insurmountable is a beautiful grayish, pale blue with more of a matte finish. This is a veluxe finish. The best textured shadow of the three quads. It is a more matte version of Bobbi Brown Iced Blue, grayer than NARS Nymphea and NARS Cleo.
  • Deep Truth is a deep navy blue with a lighter blue sheen. This is a frost finish. This is a permanent shade.
  • Bold Babe is a steely blue with a silvery-blue sheen. This is a frost finish. It has decent pigmentation though not excellent, but it could have a softer, smoother texture. It is bluer than NARS Underworld. Hourglass Prism does it about a million times better.

This quad was better than Defiance, but I’m not entirely sold. Lady Justice is rather disappointing in its sheerness–it’s more like an overlay of shimmer than an eyeshadow. Bold Babe is a gorgeous hue but could be softer, smoother, and generally more pigmented. I wish Bold Babe had knocked it out of the park, because Insurmountable is absolutely divine but obviously not worth $40 for it alone.

  • Product: 20/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

final thoughts: Like Defiance, this too will suit cooler skin tones naturally, because of all the cool-toned blues.  However, the richness of blue still works well on warmer skin tones.  The quality is better in this quad than Defiance, but it’s not excellent.

I totally agree with you, Dollymix8. That is an enchanting blue, and I’m glad it’s actually a permanent shade. The other three are mediocre to me.

Christine, I think Insurmountable is actual just a veluxe finish, not veluxe pearl. Pretty sure that’s what VX means (VP is veluxe pearl)! Veluxe is one of my favorites and I was always sad it’s nearly gone. That smooth, densely colored, velvety-soft look is a hallmark. Deep Truth is gorgeous and I don’t actually have it yet…it’s too bad I’m not crazy about the other two!

I think I’m one of the few that likes the packaging. I think it’s fun.
Anyway I can’t decide if I want to buy this quad. I only like Deep Truth and Insurmountable really and if I did buy this I would most likely try and depot the colours anyway so the packaging would probably get ruined.

I just can’t decide.

I already own Deep Truth and I won’t buy it just for Insurmountable…maybe I’ll look into getting the Bobbi Brown version because that really is a beautiful color.

I’m sitting here looking at Deep Truth thinking “That third blue looks gorgeous” then I read that it’s Deep Truth and realize it was the first e/s I ever bought from MAC, so own it!

Deep Truth is on my short list of wanted MAC shades, and Insurmountable is really lovely. As is Bold Babe. This quad is really tempting. But, y’know, I actually think I’d rather have the ChG Crackle collection. (Polish over eyeshadow? WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?)

Wow, I wanted this quad, but I’m pretty disappointed with the colours and I just know I’d never never them but I still want it… what to do, what to do….

Lady Justice seems like a really pretty highlighter (and the name reminds me of Sailor Moon!) and Deep Truth is very pretty, but I can just buy that alone since it’s permanent.
Bold Babe looks nice aswell, but I’d like it to be more smooth and pigmented.
I think Insurmountable looks a little chalky/thick/creamy (How strange does that sound?) although pigmented in the texture, but maybe I would like it in an actual eye look, it’s a cool colour and I trust you when you say it has the best formula out of the palette! ^__^

Well hello Deep Truth 😉 lol. I’ve never bought any MAC cosmetics can someone tell me if Deep Truth looks like that on the lid or does it just turn into a dirty black? (btw I have very light skin with yellow/gold undertones).

ordinarily I’d be pleased by a blues quad but… light shade is totally meh looking, I have prettier blue-grays. Blue is almost appealling, it’s actually very similar to a blue I have but this one has a weird cast to it.

the gray is the only shade I can say I like & it looks a lot like UD revolver. not that I’d pay the price for a single pretty basic gray.

If it had fabulous packaging & I bought it, I’m sure I’d be sorry. I’d like to offer MAC a thank you for not tempting me lol
