this is a very pigmented lilac purple. The colour lasts a long time with a primer and theres so much its going ot take a long time to use up all of the product. the only thing i don't like is that you can only wear this for special occasions as this colour is bright and not an everyday eyeshadow colour not suitable for school.
This is a great lilac purpley color. Wore it today for the first time, on the lid paired with moth brown in the crease. Would work best for a lid color. Was smooth and blended well. Not all colors are supposed to be super pigmented! I'm fair so worked well for me using a lid primer. Won't need to repurchase.
I adore the shade in the pot, but the pigmentation is horrible for a high end product. This texture is not starflashy at all. I was very disappointed by this one.
After seeing so many photos and EOTD's of this product, I really wanted to try it out. So I recently bought a pan of it. I expected it to be a highly pigmented, opaque, light pearl with high sheen -especially being a Starflash item.
On my fair complexion it looks washed out and seems to be lacking in the pigmentation dept..
I like NYX's "Frosted Lilac" more for this color.
I'm disappointed in it and am trying to either sell it or swap it away. Would NOT repurchase.
So pretty! I normally don't wear lighter shades or any color. I prefer dark, neutral smokey eyes, but after reading about a lot of mac eyeshadows and seeing how a lot of people like this, I decided to try it. WOW, I was pleasantly surprised! I have been trying to change my makeup and experiment with colors an I'm glad I tried this. I can actually see myself using it often with a lot of different shades and the texture is divine. A dream to apply! I used it on my lid (with a base of butternutty shadestick but I also like using neutral paintpots or paints) and top hat on crease and out v. I also love using it with Chanel's Magic Night (beautiful purple-ish/burgundy eyeshadow) instead of Top Hat sometimes. I'm NC25-35, right now I'm NC-25 but getting closer to NC30. I have dark, deep-set eyes and Lotusland brightens them up and enhances the color.
This is one of my favourite MAC shadows. It's a gorgeous pink-purple, with just enough shimmer, but not too much. It's not super duper pigmented, but it's enough for a daytime look. Lasting power on its own was mediocre, it just barely made it to the end of an 8-hour day. I usually use Lumene's primer though, which makes all shadows last amazingly long, so that's not an issue.
In the pan this color looked kinda meh to me, like any other lavendar color...nothing special. But I swatched it out of curiosity and was really surprised at how pigmented it actually was. I tried it with UDPP and combined it with graphology in the crease and absolutely loved how easy it was to blend. I feel all the colors from starflash collection are so smooth and very blendable. If this color is re-promoted in the future I would purchase again. NC30/35.
Lotusland is a pretty frosty lavendar e/s color that is very pigmented, but not overly so. I paired this with Nocturnelle in the crease and carbon in the outer v and it looked gorgeous. I'm glad I purchased this one b/f it sold out since it was LE. If it becomes available again and I am out of it, I would repurchase this one. For reference I am NC43.
It looks so pretty in the pot but it's just too darn sheer on the eye without a good base. I'm actually going to try using it wet to see if that will get the color to show up more.
This one is a super pretty shade of light purple, which is more pink toned than blue toned. It has a slight silvery smooth shimmer that makes it look somewhat pearly. The only problem is that it takes a few layers to get the pigmentation strong. I dunno why but wearing this makes my feel like a Japanese pop star.
