I love this shadow.. It is just the perfect purpish-teal-taupe....It can be so many colours with what you put it with.
MAC describes Winterized as a "Dirty purple with silver, indigo, and pink melange" which is pretty accurate. This was part of the Glitter & Ice collection. Winterized is pigmented enough to wear dry, but it is more intense and shimmery/frosty when applied wet. Based on the way the veining is in the one I got, and where I dip my brush, I can get either a greyish-purple color or a plummy-brown color - both very pretty. This also looks gorgeous over Let's Skate and Morning Frost paint pots from the same collection.
This is the first MAC mineralize eyeshadow I have purchased since Ether (which I also love) from the 2007 Flashtronic collection. I've steered away from mineralize shadows because while they are pretty to look at, a lot have lacked in pigmentation and had poor payoff. I also didn't think they were worth the price, and none really stood out to me. But based on pictures of Winterized on blogs, I decided to order it online and I've been very pleased with it. If I come across these mineralize eyeshadows in person, I might even pick up a couple more from this collection. continued >>
