MAC Artistic License is a moderately warm-toned, light coral with a frost finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $17.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Artistic License is described as a "pinky gold [with a Veluxe Pearl finish]." It's a peachy-pink with a gold shimmer and a soft, frosted finish. It had fairly good color payoff, but the texture was a bit thinner and drier than most Veluxe Pearls. This shade wore well for eight hours on me. Too Faced Jardin (P, $16.00) is darker, brighter. Urban Decay X (P, $18.00) is more shimmery, lighter. MAC Dynamic Duo 1 #1 (LE, $15.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
FURTHER READING: Formula Overview, which is a detailed review of the range as a whole.
These saturated shadows in neutral and metallic shades and multiple finishes stay on all day long with non-creasing, eight-hour wear. The result: potent colour payoff that applies evenly, blends well and can be used wet or dry.
