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.

By RoseLane03 8 months ago.

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.

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.

I was originally going to buy Woodwinked (a warm, frosty brown, with a decent amount of sparkle) but after learning that it was sold out, I was shown Patina as a comp. It's definitely not as shiny as Woodwinked, which I happen to like because it seems more suitable for everyday wear. But I've also used it as a base shade with Woodwinked for an evening party. Definitely worth every penny. xx

One of my favorites for the crease! It just goes with any look. Very blendable and not chalky like a lot of matte shadows tend to be.

By Melonie 3 years ago.

This is a beautiful shade and I first tried it years ago, and it was at least at that time an excellent superior quality eye shadow. That being said the color on me just wasn't the fuschia/magenta kick I was looking for. It has a ballet pink finish that muted the effect too much for me. Now from what I'm seeing on here the make up for ever Orchid looks to be the same as my beloved UD fishnet but without the chrome. I can't wait to try that!

By Mariella 4 years ago.

One of my 2 or 3 favourite hightlight shades from MAC. Mine actually looks less peachy than in the photo - more yellow/beige. Even though it's a frost, it really isn't all that frosty or garish and it's a super colour for the inner corner of the eye because it really brights a lot of light and brightness to that area.
