It's Everything

MAC It’s Everything Eyeshadow Quad ($41.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a cooler-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 color combination worked really well together, but the first two shades weren’t consistent with the listed finish (both on the press release as well as on the palette’s label) and seemed misprinted. The rating is based on what the brand described, to be consistent, but I’ll be double-checking on that and making any updates to the rating if it is determined to actually be flipped!

Diamond Butterfly

Diamond Butterfly is a light, peachy-beige with warm undertones and a sparkly finish. I expected this to be a Lustre finish, due to the sheerer coverage and glittery texture, but it was actually listed as a Frost (both on the press release as well as on the label on the palette itself). The texture was looser, where the glitter separated from the base color, so there was a ton of fall out when applied to the lid unless one used a glitter adhesive underneath it (and then patted the product on). I had subsequent fallout throughout the day, unfortunately. The glitter was larger and appeared a little dry/dusty on the skin.

I'd Give My All

Give My All is a soft, medium taupe-brown with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. The texture was listed as a Lustre (both in the press release and on the palette’s label), but I really do wonder if there was a misprint across the board, as it felt more like a Frost finish (while Diamond Butterfly felt like a Lustre). It had a much smoother, somewhat firmer texture that was easier to work with, blend out, and build up on the lid. It had opaque color coverage (which is more coverage than Lustres are supposed to have, in general) and didn’t start to fade until after eight hours of wear.

Twinks

Twinks is a muted, medium-dark red-brown with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. The texture was a little drier, but it was workable on the lid and applied better to the eye than it seemed to swatch. It had good color payoff and was easily blended on the eye. I noticed signs of fading after eight hours of wear. This shade is part of the permanent range, so it can be purchased individually in a pan for $6.

Images of Rapture

Images of Rapture is a deep taupe with a hint of plum and a satin finish. The pigmentation was fantastic, while the texture was soft, smooth, blendable, and not too firm or too soft in the pan, so there were no issues with powderiness or fallout during application. It lasted for just over eight hours on me before fading.

I am still trying to figure out why they didnt do individual shades, the quality would of been better. Even tubes of pigment would of have been great for this collection. Just disappointment

I love the cooler tones in this quad. It’s a shame that MAC had to add a reddish-brown in it. I have nothing against warm browns, but I can’t do red-toned ones.

Lovely cooler, smokey combo! I agree that they must’ve had a misprint or something with the first 2 shades. The textures and finishes certainly do NOT go with MAC’s designation of each ones finish! Still, I may buy this one anyways, because I love how these shades work together in the eye look you did. Plus I love gray shades on others, unfortunately this is about as close to gray that I can easily go.

This palette is on my maybe list. Your rating is high enough for me to consider it and I’ve seen live swatching that makes it look pretty pigmented. I’m curious to see how it performs for me if I get it and whether there are discrepancies with batches.

In despite of the bad rating of Diamond Butterfly (looks gorgeous) this quad is speaking more to me than the other one that came in this collection. The colours seem to have more variety. Love the look you’ve created!

This quad was the only tempting one for me from the collection. The rating means I’ll skip it but Images of Rapture is a beautiful color.

Now, THIS one I like, but I already have Twinks and, to be honest, I don’t like Mariah Carey AND I don’t like the price! I have to check out the dupes to see if I can resist this quad.

Hahaha! I read your post and it reminded me of that I do not like Mariah Carey either. So I will skip this one as a matter of principle! That’s easier then to keep on thinking about it. I do love Christine’s eyelook though.

That’s ALWAYS the problem – even with mediocre (or worse than mediocre) products, Christine always does such fabulous looks with them that I start thinking “Well, maybe it’s not so bad….” and then it’s a struggle not to give in to temptation. But that’s why the Dupe List is such a help (well, some of the time!) – we can see how to recreate the beautiful look with better products that we might already have in our stashes.

Yes, I know what you mean! It reminds me of a discussion here when the topic was how to save money on makeup (or something similar): then I realized that I should start practicing with what I have instead thinking that buying new stuff will make me a makeup artist all of a sudden. I do not have dupes for these particular shades, but I do have a lot of other stuff that suits me!

Also very beautiful eye look. Will buy it although one eyeshadow performs so bad. The dark brown colour looks really good and I always wanted to have twinks.

Hi Christine. I love the look you did with the colors. But there are other things I’d much rather get for $41. Plus, I already have Twinks, so no need to waste the money. I’m hoping I can get find dupes so I can get a similar look EOTD.

Do you remember what eyeliner you are wearing in this EOTD?

Also you recently did an EOTD using Urban Decay’a Mars eyeliner. Is it discontinued?

Thank you in advance & happy Thanksgiving to you & yours and to any one else who reads the comments.

It’s kind of frustrating when the “cool” palettes contain mostly warm-toned products! Although I do really like the colors of #2 and #4.

I quite like the colours chosen for this palette, but it is a shame that the quality is so inconsistent. Rapture is a lovely shade.
A really beautiful eye look Christine.

I almost decided to buy this when I saw your eye look. Then I read the review and decided not to. I do really like Rapture a lot, but not enough to buy the palette.

Images of Rapture looks so purple-y in the pan but when I looked at the dupes – and it seems I’ve got 3 of them – they’re all cool brown shades but I realize I’m more than covered – Wanderlust, Defy, Keep Your Cool are all shadows I own.

This is the one item in the MC collection that really caught my eye; Images of Rapture and I’d Give My All (those names lol) are just beautiful! I’ll definitely pick this up 🙂

Definitely picking this one up! Even though the glitter shade is difficult, I just love the shade combos they chose and it seems the rest perform well!
