Pleasantly surprised by this mineralized shadow at first test. Very glittery but pretty mix of greens, charcoal & cream in its pan. Serious staying power when applied wet and minimal fallout; I tried it in the store, thought oh well, we'll see how long this holds up (not) and was proven wrong- if you don't remove it, it doesn't fade or wear completely off. The color is a TRUE emerald when applied damp; rich and vibrant. I have not sprung for this yet as it's a more "fun" shade, not what I consider a must-have or an everyday staple. But it gave gorgeous life to my plain black liner/neutral shadow combo and is now definitely a contender the next time I'm looking for a stunning pop of color :)
I don't know what took me so long to review this product, I guess I thought I already had. This is the most gorgeous green eyeshadow of any type I have ever had. You really need to wear it foiled (wet) to get the full gorgeous, gorgeous effect. It must be seen and tried to be believed.
This has got to be THE most perfect emerald green eyeshadow!! It is pretty shimmery, I won't say it's "glittery" but it sparkly? It's a nice deep emerald green shimmer with a dark black background. As with most/all MES, these really do perform best when foiled (used wet). The green really pops and gives your eyes a very glamorous smoky look. When used dry, it's more of a matte black with green shimmers. But wet??? it's like green liquid metal or aluminum foil!!! Definitely one of my faves!! Then again, I love pretty much all of the MAC MES's :D
I have: Ether, Young Punk, Smutty Green, Mercurial, and Earthly Riches (which is more satin/frost compared to the rest which are shimmery)
