Illusionary/Burning Ambition

MAC Mineralize Eyeshadow

MAC Illusionary/Burning Ambition is a frost finish that is permanent and retails for $21.00 and contains 0.06 oz.

The Mineralize Eyeshadow formula is supposed to have "low-to-medium coverage" when applied dry and "more intense coverage and color" when used wet. Most shades have color payoff that is true to the brand's description: semi-sheer to semi-opaque when used dry and semi-opaque to opaque when used with a dampened brush. I tend to find that they apply more smoothly and evenly with a more metallic finish with a dampened brush as well. Some shades can be a little too dry or dusty and do not apply as well with a dry brush. The wear is typically a bit less than average on me--six to seven hours.

This is probably my most used MES of all the ones I own. I have had it for ages and mostly use the brown side and it still looks brand new. The brown is a rich, bronzey dark brown with sheen and it is so versatile. The lighter shade is light yellow with gold "chunks" and can be more than bit chunky and difficult to apply to get a smooth result. It's also a bit too garish for me to consider using it for a brow highlight - again, it's those chunks! But even if I never used the light side at all, this duo would have been worth it just to get the "Burning Ambition" side of the duo.
