MAC Colourful Life is a neutral-toned, medium teal with a pearl finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $17.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Colourful Life is described as a "dark teal [with a Veluxe Pearl finish]." It's a rich, jewel-toned teal that leans green and has a satiny sheen. It had fairly good color payoff, but it has a slightly dry, stiffer texture (doesn't feel like a Veluxe Pearl). This shade is very prone to staining so I recommend wearing an opaque base underneath to prevent staining the lid (and washing brushes immediately after use). Fyrinnae Gender Bent is bluer. Milani Teal the Truth is bluer. Maybelline Edgy Emerald is lighter. MAC Surf USA is darker, slightly greener. Sugarpill Darling is warmer. Make Up For Ever #168 is greener. See comparison swatches.
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.
