Purchased this despite the so-so reviews to compliment Stars n Rockets. I absolutely love it & color payoff is great. Its is the perfect bright purple on me not a grape color at all.Its is very blend able & long lasting. I had looked for a dupe with no luck as didn't want to spend $16 on a color I wouldn't wear often. I have a lot of Mac products but have wasted $ on colors not worn enough i.e. Carbon. I can say it was worth the $16.
I wasn't madly in love with Vibrant Grape when I first saw it and swatched it, the colour payoff was really not the best and it looks a bit chalky and not good on the back of my hand. However, when used on the eyes it comes to life. It is a medium toned purple shade, kind of similar to Ooh La Orchid by Too Faced. I actually really like using this the most on my lower lashline to complement a dark or light brown smokey eye. It sounds like it shouldn't work, purple and brown together, but personally I think it adds the most beautiful pop of colour to the eye, drawing attention in a positive way. I love this shade, I don't think it is talked about enough, its understated and fabulous.
I love this purple.... It goes on real nice on my eyelids...when I use Mac brush 242 or 239....it lasts long without any primer
I would call this a true purple. Pigmentations not so great but try layering it over something like soft ochre paint pot or a white eye pencil. Lovee this with lashes and clashing lips like lovelorn. Reminds me of something rihanna would wear. A perfect summer colour and easy to wear during the day. Good staple purple.
Unfortunatly, Vibrant Grape is part of the limited edition called "Style Warrior". It is no very pigmented but it is a true purple colour. It doesn't look pink or blue. Because of the lack of pigmentation I use it mainly over the crease and it makes a really good combination with many other colours.
I like the product. I wouldn't recommend it to use all over the lid but it's good for the crease and the outer V.
Don't get this. It lacks pigmentation and the texture is a bit chalky. It's one of those eyeshadows that you have to apply with a sponge because brushes can't pick it up well and it won't apply evenly. I suppose it would probably show up better with a sticky black or purple base but for the price we are paying, we shouldn't need to buy/use a separate product to get the pretty purple color we see in the pot.
I like this color but I dont love it. I bought it for the VIBRANT purple. But instead its just a nice muted purple! Still is nice, still works just fine... but not wild!
Im a sucker for purple eyeshadows so i had to get this. I swatched this eyeshadow in the mac store and it had horrible pigmentation. But i had heard the vibrant grape eyeshadow in the mac pro store had amazing pigmentation and it is so true. The vibrant grape from the pro store has amazing pigmentation.
I saw this color in a tutorial and just fell in love.......today I bought it since it's available in regular stores now. It's true that it's not super pigmented, but I layered it over a black base and the payoff was unlike any other purple I've seen! I have olive skin and it just glowed and made my brown eyes really pop. I'm okay with putting it over a base since I always use a primer anyways and well purple is my fave color and this is the best one I've owned so far!
When I seen this purple from style warrior collection I was in LOVE! I've been looking for a purple thats bright and very pigmented. I was very disappointed by Vibrant grape, It was chalky and had a lot of fall out. For the purple to show up on my dark skin I had to pack it on..which was time consuming..I would not buy this again...still on the search for the perfect purple.
