This is a matte cobalt blue that is very stiff in the pan. Next to nothing comes off on fingers but it does scrape off with anything abrasive like fabric. It's part of the Pandamonium Quad.

This is a pale yellow/cream colored frost that is very nicely pigmented. It's part of the Pandamonium Quad.

MAC Deep Damson is a pretty warm burgundy shade, with enough hints of brown to not make me look sick (usually eyeshadows with red in them make me look sick). It's a nice color that I can use all over the lid (and diffused in the crease) as a single-color look, but also to deepen the crease or the outer-v for looks with warm browns, warm mauves (like MAC Haux) or pinks. Most MAC Matte eyeshadows are stiff in the pan, but the Deep Damson I have is even stiffer. If you don't use it with the `right` brush, it applies patchy and hardly gives any pigmentation. If I use something like a eye shader brush (like MAC 242), I barely get product on the brush. I like it applied with fluffier brushes (like MAC 217, 224) even when I pack it on the lid; I like that this kind of eyeshadow formula gives me a lot of space to play with the pigmentation. Packed on the lid, the shadow looks like a beautiful deep wine/burgundy; diffused it looks more like a mauve with hints of wine. The eyeshadow is so stiff that it doesn't have any fallout. I always use eyeshadow primer set with powder, never had issue with this eyeshadow creasing.

MAC Deep Truth is a nice jewel toned blue in the pan, but on my eyes it looks like a blue with shifts of indigo. It's definitely a cool blue and I find it works with my dark brown eyes. It has some shimmer/frost in the pan, but once applied it almost looks matte (but not flat). I wouldn't personally call it a `dark-blue`... maybe `medium-blue`. In the pan the eyeshadow is quite stiff, but the product can be picked-up nicely with a good brush; it works good with both flat brushes (for precise application) and fluffy brushes (for blending). The opacity is not great with first applications, but it can be built up easily (especially with a flat brush). There's some fall-out, but it's minimal. For a bold opaque application a darker shade underneath Deep Truth would really help. It's not the easiest eyeshadow to blend, but it doesn't look patchy.

MAC Humid is an eyeshadow that looks like a jewel toned green in the pan, but translates like a mossy/military green on the eyes. The warmness of the green makes this color look wonderful with a warm toned dark brown in the crease, complimenting my brown eyes. It's a beautiful green eyeshadow (with some flaws) that look great on the lid and in the crease as well. It applies smoothly on the lid and blends well with other eyeshadows. As most frost finish MAC eyeshadows has is has a little bit of shimmer, but Humid is minimally shiny; sometimes it can almost appear matte on my eyes. Humid is quite buildable and versatile, allowing me to obtain a variety of looks. With a fluffy brush and/or light application, it applies very sheer. With a stiff brush I can build the color to a darker green, but never to full opacity. I only can get it as green as in the pan if I apply it over a darker base (green/black eye pencil smudged all over the lid or a dark matte brown). I didn't find Humid very pigmented or `intense` (as MAC states). My biggest issues with Humid is that it creases and it has some fallout even with stiffer brushes. I own other MAC Frost eyeshadows and this is the only color that has these issues. But it's the best green for me and due to it's versatility I would consider re-purchasing it (I have a minimalist approach to make-up purchases).

totally looks better in the pan than translates to the skin. in the pan, the color looks beautiful and highly pigmented, but in reality, it is much more sheer. you can build the color on your lid, but it never gets to the pan color. i used to use this as a transition shade for a dramatic (and sometimes harsh) black smokey eye, with the purple as the smoke. because it was sheer, it blended out nicely, but again not much color pay off. over time, this color would get the dreaded 'bumps' and sometimes you will have to scrape that layer off. also, does not foil well.

Coppering is a lovely copper shade that pulls slightly peachy on me. Applied dry it is smooth and buildable but has a lovely foil effect when applied wet. Lasts for 6+ hours when used with an eyeshadow primer and does not crease. Has a little fallout but nothing unsolvable.

I purchased five mattes (swiss chocolate, quarry, fig 1, omega, and wedge) they're all extremely stiff, hard pressed, very difficult to get any pigment, have to jam my brush in the pan to get anything to show up. I ordered straight from the MAC site so I know they were authentic. Not the same quality as MAC I purchased years ago (cork, follie, arena) Will not ever purchase again.

Very disappointed in this shadow. Product is hard to apply. I have to dig with my brush to get any pigment.

This is a lovely color, and I'm sure it was very good at one point, but just as a warning, the version of this on allcosmeticswholesale as of Jun 2017 isn't very good. I'm sure it's authentic, just old. It's stiff in the pan and lacking pigment.

What a beautiful and useful color! I avoided this one in the past because I couldn't see how this frosted color could work on me. I don't normally like using shimmery colors in my crease, but I finally broke down and bought it based on reviews. I'm so glad I did! This looks absolutely gorgeous as a crease color. It is extremely pigmented with excellent color payoff. It's frosted, but in a more subtle way. The color stayed on perfectly all day (note: I always use a primer under all eyeshadow). I own a lot of eyeshadows, and Satin Taupe is now my favorite.

This is my most-used MAC eyeshadow, which I use as a transition color. I'm surprised by the low rating. I apply this color into my crease, then build around it.

I probably got a faulty product, since so many other people love theirs, however my Soft Brown develops hard pan after every use, making it a struggle to get pigmentation from it. It doesn't even matter whether I go in with synthetic or natural brushes.

So pretty, but you have to work it onto a few layers to get it good

I was looking for a dupe for Urban Decay Naked 3's Strange - one of my favorite light, matte shadows. Blanc Type is a perfect dupe color-wise, but comes off even more pigmented and doesn't blend out as sheerly as Strange does. If Blanc Type was a bit creamier in texture or layered a little better on top of lid colors I'd give it a five, but overall very happy to find a "better" Strange in a single ES.

Years ago, when I was first getting into MAC eyeshadows in a big way, I tried Cork because I knew it was a very highly regarded product. I HATED it! It looked so orange-y and dull on my cool skin and brown eyes - just did absolutely nothing for me. I bought it again last week mainly because of the lowered price of MAC's Pro-Pan shadows. I guess I've come a long way in my makeup techniques because I now understand how to use Cork so that it really works for me (subtle crease colour or for blending out darker, more intense crease colours and for giving more contour to a very basic, "no makeup" eye look. This is also good for my brows, which are dark and cool but which I sometimes want to intensify only slightly. Even though Cork is lighter and warmer than my actual brow hairs, it works really well.

All that Glitters is one of the very first eyeshadow that i bought and probably have made the most use of. Although UD Sin is also a champagne shimmer, the gold pearl in this works very well for most of my eyeshadow looks.
