MAC x Steve J. & Yoni P. Touch Me Baby Eyeshadow Duo Review, Photos, Swatches

Touch Me Baby

MAC Touch Me Baby Eyeshadow Duo ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) features two powder eyeshadows with one of them–Soba–being part of MAC’s permanent range. The two shades worked well paired together, but it was the type of duo that still made me want to reach for other shades. I was pleasantly surprised at how well Soba incorporated with Keep On Twinkling as the latter had a much more shimmery texture and sometimes mattes and shimmers do not play well together for blending/layering next to each other.

The Steve J. and Yoni P. Collection will be available in select stores and online on June 1st.

Keep on Twinkling

Keep on Twinkling is a light-medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a sparkling, frosted finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, sparkly texture (not smooth to the touch due to the shimmer but not dry or dusty) that applied with minimal fallout. The eyeshadow applied evenly, and it wore well for seven and a half hours with a bit of fallout over time.

Soba

Soba is a soft, golden brown with warm undertones and a fine, golden shimmer. The consistency was smooth, soft, and blendable without being powdery or dusty in the pan. The eyeshadow had opaque color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin and stayed on for eight hours before starting to fade on me. This shade is part of the permanent range.

This is a darling duo! I really like these two colors paired together, though I can definitely see why you ended up reaching for a few extra shades when using it.

Wow, monitors/displays. I think. In the eye look on my iPad, the Soba looks to be purple leaning gray. Or is that due to the blending with the sparkly pink? I never would have predicted that lid shade, given the duo. Soba is so warm by itself. Or is it the display? Maybe I’ll look on the work computer. Confused.

Getting this! I had a gut feeling that this was going to review quite well! However, like yourself, I also know it will need at least one other shade (plus a browbone highlighter) to get a cohesive look most of the time. I know I I’ll have to pull in a crease shade, for instance.

Just wanted to tell you how I enjoy your reviews and have bought many of your recommendations! You are so gorgeous-LOOOOOOVE your eyes and LOOVE how you do your eye makeup! Just wanted to say how much I appreciate what you do !!!! Take care now!!

These look unlikely pairs in a duo and I think, as you did Christine, that you would have to reach for other shades to make the look work. If that is the case, then you may as well reach for a palette in stash that has the approximation to those shades. There are lots of dupes for both those colours – as pretty as they are.

Right underneath the photos, there’s a link that says “Look Details” – this lists all of the details for the look.

I love the eye look!
I like this duo, but fall out over time is such a deal breaker for me, so I’ll probably skip it. If I find it here I’ll swatch it though, and I might change my mind.
