I am in love with this eyeshadow! It's a beautiful purple shade with blue iridescence, you see different colors at every angle. I like to apply it with Fix+ to really intensify all of the colors. Pairs well with MAC Swiss Chocolate for a purple smokey eye. It's one of a kind.

This is a great shade. I adore purples of all kinds so I wanted this in my collection. I love cool toned duo's as well. UD's Fishnet I would say is a total dupe just a touch more purple in it. I own them both and love them! Stars N Rockets takes a little building for me to get the colour I want. I use NYX's Milk as a base and it works much better that way. My only complaint is you could go through this fast because of needing to build it up. I'm very fair and I like to use this with Shroom, All that Glitters, and Digit. It looks amazing paired with Digit on the inner half and SnR on the other half. It looks great with green eyes and is a shade I will not be without. Definite repurchase for me. Recommended

The most gorgeous duo chrome color & I received many compliments. I used a white base LAC Sea Shells which is comparable to NYX Milk pencil.Then I used Stars N Rockets over entire lid, Vibrant Grape in the crease, Steamy inner eyelid,liner & Deep truth outer. Color is opaque & long lasting.This is a color that is unique,great blend able formula,long wearing & worth the $.

Love this duochrome eyeshadow by Mac. I start off by using a dark base such as Stila's Kajal eyepencil in onyx and blend really well and up into the crease, then adding S&R over this which gives an absolutely gorgeous deep violet/blue. I then use creme de violet by Mac in the crease and in the outer v I use my all time favourite eyeshadow which is MakeUpForever #92 which gives a deep pigmented purple, fab colour payoff! I always use my favourite primer which is the Nars SmudgeProof. This is my favourite goto look. Stars and Rockets is by far one of my most favourite Mac eyeshadows.

This is one of the most unique shades I own- a duochrome eyeshadow that flashes dark pink and blue in light. I can't really pull it off on its own, but blended with other darker shades, it looks gorgeous. I bought this on a whim a year ago and am surprised I never reviewed it. It is very shimmery which I don't mind and it is a fun shade to play around with when I grow bored with basic colors. I have to use a primer before application, but it is pigmented and blends well with an eyeshadow brush.

I am glad it worked out for others, but on me, it looks like I got beaten up with a bruised eye. Yes gorgeous purple,blue,reddish pink. All of the colors of flesh beaten to the pulp. This color reminds me of zombie halloween make up I used three years ago. I'll wait til halloween rolls around again for some bloody gore use.

So I have a ton of eyeshadows from pinks to browns to blues etc but this eyeshadow is super special. I was in the MAC store and swatched this and walked around looking at other shades but I kept looking at this colour on my hand and I thought it was SO beautiful. It is a purple with pinkish and light blue tones to it, it is super unique. I applied it onto the lid and used a brown colour in the crease (something like wedge or soft brown by MAC) and it looked really lovely. If you wanna do something really fun you can play up the blue tones in the eyeshadow and use a turquoise colour in the crease or as a liner. This shadow is so versatile in what you can pair with it because it has so many different tones to it. You can even darken it with a really dark purple, black or brown for a night time look and it would look super sexy. This eyeshadow will especially make brown eyes pop and sparkle, it is so gorgeous. Please buy this shadow because there is NOTHING out there that is as beautiful as it is. I would recommend this to everyone.

Stars N Rockets pulls too red on my eyes, but looks really nice as a shimmery violet blush. Most purple blushes are too brown, or too pink/red on my skin, but this is really pretty, in a slightly bruised sort of way. Urban Decay's Asphyxia is a close dupe.

Even though I own a TON of eyeshadows (both Naked palettes, custom MAC Z-Palette) I had nothing remotely similar to Stars 'N' Rockets so I decided to buy it. It's a beautiful duochrome, a mixture of light pink-purple with a blue iridescence. It's a Veluxe Pearl, my favourite MAC eyeshadow finish so the pigmentation and application are both excellent. Now, it is quite bright, but I can make it work in the daytime by wearing UD 'Sin' in my inner corner, Stars n Rockets all over the lid and blended out with Wedge. The key to making it work is to blend with browns such as Wedge, Kid or Cork. Another way to wear it is 'Sin' in the inner corner, Trax all over the lid and Stars 'N' Rockets in the crease, but still blended with brown. This way you get a hint of Stars 'N' Rockets if you're not sure of wearing it on the lid. Oh, and if you layer it over a black base, it turns into the most gorgeous purple-blue!

This is one of the few duochrome colours in the MAC pan eyeshadow range (excluding pigments), the other two being Vex and Club. As it is, the colour is nice, very fun and definitely for certain 'looks'. I'm not a huge purple fan as on asian skin it can look a bit contrived or very bruised. As the MAC MUA was recommending this shade, my facial expression was one of scepticism verging on disinterest. However, he brought out a kohl liner and rubbed a little of this over it, and it went bright blue. A shade perhaps that can be duplicated by 'Freshwater' or 'Electric Eel' but where would be the fun in that? There's some slight purpley undertones which are subtle but substantial enough to make this look different from the true blue shades that MAC offer. I loved it!!!!!! Absolutely head over heels. When I first bought it, I wore it non stop for weeks as a liner (over NARS Via Veneto, UD 24/7 Perversion, MAC powerpoint liner Engraved) and got lots of compliments and the most I've ever had for any look from lots of guys (who let's face it, barely notice a thing most days). I've taken one point off only for its limitations of use. I find I can't wear this as a purple eyeshadow - it just doesn't suit looks I'm comfortable with, and I wouldn't wear this bright a blue all over my lids for any sort of occasion. So I'm restricted to wearing it with 'sensible' colours to make them pop and my eyes really stand out. Looks great with MAC Amber Lights, Greensmoke and Coppering. Also looks fantastic (and probably my easiest and quickest look) with Illamasqua's Tango (a deep copper shade).
