I effing love this shade! it's a super easy way to add a hit of colour to your everyday eye makeup.
A must have for everyone, esp for hazel eyes or brown :D Seriously, go buy it, you won't regret it
I adore this eyeshadow, I think it may be my favourite one of all time. It is a gorgeous olive gold green colour that goes sooo well with my NC25 skin. It is a veluxe pearl formula so you know it's going to be soft and blendable and velvety, just perfection and not too much shimmer. It goes well with so many colours, my current favourite look is sumptuous olive on the lid, wedge in the crease and brun in the outer v. It can be worn in the daytime as a simple wash on the lid or you can really make it sultry and smoky for night time with a dark crease colour. It goes well with my brown eyes especially, it brings out the little tinge of green I have in them. I can't describe how amazing this shadow is and once I finish it you bet I'll be out to buy another one. I'd recommend it to anyone who is a little scared of trying out greens because it is a little darker and golden so it's a good starting point, and it is very versatile and flattering. 5/5
Beautiful neutral green veluxe pearl... I absolutely love this shadow on the lid with cork in the crease. The best way to make it show up on the lid as it does in the pan is to use UDPP, which is the best invention EVER (imo). I am a NC25 and have green eyes which this shadow brings out beautifully. Even though they say you shouldn't wear green if you have green eyes, I strenuously disagree. MAC has limited greens that I think are worth purchasing, but this and humid are definitely worth the price.
If you are looking to spice up your neutral looks try sumptuous olive, you won't be sorry!
This is a a beautiful neutral yet a flirty color paired with a bit of beige shimmer for day and can be played up at night with darker crease colors. I love this color and use it almost every day. Goes on like butter with no fallout after using eyeprimer and still gorgeous after a full day of work. Worth every penny!
Words can not express how much I love this color. Its the perfect amount of green for my hazel eyes. When I wear it the color just gives me a little pop no need to go drama as the color itself does the work. I always love the feel of how buttery mac shadows are and this one is not any different. A must in any MAC collection promise you won't regret.
Sumptuous Olive is a pearlized, shimmery light-medium khaki green. I like to use this shade with woodwinked to create a gradient, shimmery effect. This shade is flattering on all skin tones and is probably best at complementing brown eyes. This is a good staple to have in your eye color collection. If you like easy to wear, no fuss greens, try Sumptuous Olive.
This might be the sexiest eyeshadow colour I own. Sumptuous Olive looks like a green gold on my lids. It's totally silky and lustrous. I am a sucker for Veluxe Pearls but this is my fav. It creates such a sultry look when paired with Mulch. Definitely a colour I turn to for evening looks. Sometimes I wear green colour contacts and when I wear Sumptuous Olive, it makes them look really dazzling. Brings my natural brown eye colour out as well. Have never experienced this looking grey or dull as others have said. I have duped this shadow with a combination of NYX Ultra Pearl Mania shadows in Bronze Pearl and Jade Pearl but I still love the real deal for its quality and brilliance.
Sumptuous olive definitely looks different on the pan. On me appears somewhat undefinable grey with green hint..? Not bad but not the golden olive I expected.
Also, because of the duochrome effect doesn't seem very pigmented but of course you can layer.
Applies easily and doesn't crease for a decent amount of time.
I mostly use sumptuous olive applied on the lid with handwritten for crease and ricepaper under the brows, NW10, dark blonde hairs,green eyes for reference.
This is one of those shadows you can "dress up" or "dress down" depending on your mood. It is a deep "hunter" green with golden tones as well. Would look fab on any eye color, but particularly green or brown/hazel eyes. I've used this along with NYX JEP in Rocky Mountain Green, Iced Mocha, and Dark Brown. The JEP plays off the green and gold in the shadow and looks amazing. I prefer to use it as a lid color, and a very soft crease & highlight color, as not to take away from the "star of the show." Sheer it out by applying it with a lighter hand, more appropriate for everyday. Bottom line: there's so much you can do with this color, buy it!
I Frickin love this color!!!! It's a gorgeous olive green/brown with gold shimmer. Since its a veluxe pearl (my fave Mac eyeshadow finish), it goes on smooth like butter. I wear this over a bronzey cream eyeshadow and add "club" in the crease and UD's half baked on the center of my lids for a pretty smoky eye. I don't think you can buy this in palette form so I bought the eyeshadow compact and I Plan on deporting it for my mac palette. Def would repurchase this color!!!
