I'm That Chick You Like

MAC I’m That Chick You Like Eyeshadow Quad ($41.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a warm-toned set of neutral shades that leans more shimmery. It is housed in a “glitter” trimmed compact, where the glitter looks and seems like glitter, but it is completely smooth to the touch. The shades are more dupable than not, and while it’s not the worst we’ve seen from MAC, it isn’t the greatest either!

Whenever You Call

Whenever You Call is a light gold with warm, yellow undertones and a frosted finish. The pigmentation was fantastic, while the texture was soft, smooth, and blendable on the skin. It wore well for eight hours before starting to crease slightly.

Formula Overview

$17.00/0.05 oz. - $340.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be a "highly pigmented powder" that goes on "evenly and blends well." MAC eyeshadows run the gamut from total failures to long-time, cult-favorite staples. In general, the permanent line has been more consistent in performance--and higher performance at that--compared to limited edition launches, but it can really depend.

The Matte finish tends to have a firmer press and a bit of thinness compared to other matte formulas on the market, so MAC matte eyeshadows tend to build up better and have better wear-time without fallout as they're not powdery at all. Some of the newer matte finish shades have had a more velvety quality to them that gives them a softer feel but aren't powdery; these have been easier to blend and are often more pigmented in one layer.

The Lustre finish is designed to have sheerer pigmentation, and it often has more sheer to medium coverage with a drier, dustier consistency that can be hard to apply with a dry brush. Lustre finish shades can suffer from fallout during application, too. They are the old school version of an eyeshadow "topper." I would recommend applying with a fingertip or applying with a dampened brush to get smoother, more even coverage and minimize fallout.

The Satin finish is few and far in-between, but it is softer and more yielding than the Matte finish but performs similarly. They tend to have very low sheen but are quite blendable with medium to opaque coverage. It can be easy to mix the finish up with the Velvet finish, which has more of a sparkle-over-matte effect but are more powdery than the true Matte finish.

The Frost finish is more firmly-pressed into the pan but doesn't have fallout, is often pigmented, and blends out well enough. They can sometimes be a little drier to the touch depending on how much shimmer is in the shade. The Veluxe Pearl finish is one of the creamier takes within the range, and newer shades released in the finish tend to have more moderate, silicone-like slip. I've found that Veluxe Pearl finish shades tend to have more semi-opaque pigmentation and are more consistent in performance than some of the other finishes.

One thing I've found with MAC eyeshadows is that they tend to last longer without primer than the average brand (eight hours). While some eyeshadow shades don't swatch well, they often apply better in practice--as in on the eyes!--than just swatched on the skin. They can be quite hit or miss, and they have inconsistencies between releases (see Carbon and its sordid review history!).

Can't Escape Me

Can’t Escape Me is a medium brown with warm, orange undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a firmer texture, which wasn’t hard to blend on the lid, but it was harder to get the product onto the brush without jabbing the surface of the pan. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Golden Petals Scattering

Golden Petals Scattering is a medium-dark, golden brown with warm undertones and gold flecks of sparkle. The texture of this one had a grittiness to it from the sparkly bits that seemed to separate and pull away from the base color to a moderate degree, which resulted in fallout during application and later on during wear. I would recommend using a slightly tacky or cream base with this shade. The color lasted for eight hours but had fallout.

How You Thrill Me is a deep brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, but it was very buildable and much easier to use than it might appear just swatched–it didn’t turn patchy or apply unevenly. The texture was smooth, not too firm or too soft in the pan, and blendable on the lid. It started to fade after eight hours of wear.

The colors are very Mariah! Even though these colors are very dupe-able, this would be a very versatile palette for me, as I can use the shimmery yellow as shadow/highlighter, the shimmery bronze as shadow/bronzer/blush, and the 2 darker colors as shadows. Wish the quality was better or the price lower, will have to think about this.

The price didn’t even stick out to me, because I think the quads were reaching this price point before they did the drop for the pans – but it is a good deal higher than the current pre-made quad price!

This is a pass for me I’m more interested in the other quad, I hope it rates well…and the lipsticks and glass wow from some photos I’ve seen, as well as the skin finish the star of the show (:

I rarely see MAC’s quads do such a great job – I prefer buying singles since the these often are so poor in quality. I like the neutral colours, but I think I’ll be picking them up separately considering the individual pans are that much cheaper now!

This is definitely a truly Mariah eye look combo; soft, golden, shimmery.
But I’m chock full of these types of shades as it is. Especially as I tend to go softly-lit golden eyes quite a bit myself!
The other quad has me a bit more intrigued….

Reminds me of my favourite mac riri her cocoa palette, a nice combination of brown/gold. But I think the eyeshadows in the Riri palette are better performing when I remember it right. But I will definitely buy this one, twice as usual, one to use, one for my collection.
And I will definitely copy your eye look.

There is really nothing special in this quad: the shades are very warm, the colours dupable and ratings OK to average. A little more imagination is required MAC.

I’m not a fan of Mariah Carey in any case so would likely skip this but it really is such a dupe-able 4-some and easily duped with better quality products. For years now I’ve felt as Michele commented – I never buy their quads without waiting to read your reviews.

At least it if it had been original, there would have been some better feelings toward it, but colors we see all the time that aren’t great quality? Sigh!

To me, I think this quad reminds me of the Morning Light Guo Pei quad. I guess based on this review,
the Guo Pei is a better quality set, so I am happy about that.
