MAC Mortal Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette ($44.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a warm-toned mix of coral and bronze. If you’re unfamiliar with the formula, it’s supposed to be a “hybrid formula” that can be applied dry for sheer color, wet for opaque color with supreme blendability. In the past, many of these palettes have been incredibly shimmery and sparkly, but this one is a little toned down–more frosted than sparkle/glitter–so there is less concern for fall out. I get good wear out of the eyeshadows once they’re on, but they always look a bit faded applied. This palette could use more contrast, as the colors run together due to most of them being light-medium or medium in color. I’d also love one or two satin/matte finishes to add more variety.

Mortal #1 is a golden beige with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was semi-sheer both dry and wet, though it was more metallic when applied with a dampened brush. The texture was soft but not powdery, while it lasted for eight hours. See comparison swatches of similar shades / view side-by-side swatches on the Dupe List.

Mortal #2 is a golden orange with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had semi-sheer color payoff applied dry, and it was more opaque when applied with a dampened brush. The consistency was slightly powdery but very soft. On the eye, the color wore well for eight and a half hours before fading. See comparison swatches of similar shades / view side-by-side swatches on the Dupe List.

Mortal #3 is a brightened, medium coral-pink with warm undertones and a frosted, golden shimmer finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation when applied dry, and it was fully opaque when applied damp. The texture felt finely-milled and soft, though it was a bit powdery to work with. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches of similar shades / view side-by-side swatches on the Dupe List.

Mortal #4 is a medium-dark, golden bronze with warm, orange undertones and a frosted, metallic sheen. Applied dry, it was mostly opaque but not as metallic as when it was applied damp. The texture was soft, smooth, and not powdery (which is a big deal for this formula). The color didn’t start to fade until after eight and a half hours of wear. See comparison swatches of similar shades / view side-by-side swatches on the Dupe List.

Mortal #5 is a warm-toned bronze with a slight gray/taupe vibe. Applied dry, it was more copper-bronze, and then applied damp, it had a stronger gray cast but still ran quite warm. The texture was soft and smooth, but the damp application didn’t yield full color coverage. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours.

😛 Dior is impressive. Charlotte Tilbury is as well. I’m uncertain of Christmas because everything is cheaper after it. But, thanks, MAC & Brooke Sheilds for some reason, for succeeding at something Bobbi Brown already mastered but is changing.. But you did add dividers..) it’s like I’m on a horse tranquilizer when I browse MAC. Lol 😉

I love how the palette looks, but I don’t think I’ll buy it. I really like the middle one. but I think I’d rather buy the MUFE Coral Pink. The rest of the shades I think I have ones close enough if I look around a bit.

Ahh, that #3 shade is totally on my ‘DO WANT’ list right now – anything like Paper Roses, Freelove…all of those gold sheened peachy shadows!
