Absolutely gorge. Blends well with pretty much any other color (i especially like it with goldbit) and i'm so upset its LE. hopefully mine will last foreverr!
Lucky Green is a limited edition shadow released June 2005 with the Belle Azure collection. This is the veluxe formula so its very smooth and easy to blend. Its has a stunning metallic sheen to it, and its a bright vivid golden hint of lime green shade. Very pretty shade. Since its limited edition its only available in a flip top bronze pot and retails for $13. I think its a great shade.
What a beautiful color Lucky Green is. The formula glides in smoothly and it is highly pigmented. The base pigment is the exact color of grass in the Northeastern US in the spring time. The shimmer is yellow gold. Compared to Chartreuse and Golden Olive pigment, it is much more matte yellow. I would say HALF as shimmery as either of those.
so far it stays on decently, but I will be updating as I use it more. I tend to have trouble with most MAC shadows disappearing quickly from my skin.
If you like Golden Olive pigment, you will probably like this. Compared to Chartreuse pigment (the shimmery one), Lucky Green has a very yellow gold shimmer. Chartreuse has a light lime shimmer in it. Two completely different families of color, but still both beautiful.
Looks beautiful with parrot and Leisuretime. I plan to try a lot of different things with this shadow color. Worth the investment if you think you have every color MAC makes.
UPDATE: I have had trouble with Lucky Green disappearing on me quickly. It also takes a lot of coats to make it show up. Pigments last a lot longer than this does. I am removing 2 lippies for that reason. continued >>
This is the only shade that I found interesting in the Belle Azure collection. It's a super shimmery green with yellow undertones. I love the smooth formula and the shade works with many colors: golds, coppers,blues and teals, other greens like Bitter and Swimming and UD Acid Rain and Mildew (can you tell I'm wild about greens), greys and purples. I just do not like the "limited edition" tacky and cheap looking bronze packaging. It always ends up flaking like it was painted with a cheap metallic spraypaint or even worse it breaks. I wish I could get it to fit into my pro pallete instead.
This e/s is a MUST have from the Belle Azure collection, it's a gorgeous green with yellow tones to it. It has been said that it's identical to Golden Olive pigment, but it's not, very pretty! It's a veluxe pearl formula and it goes on so smoothly, GGG here!
I am a huge fan of greens and the veluxe pearl formula - so this one was definately a must for me!
The mac site describes it as: Hot wasabi green with yellow pearl.
An essential if you like greens as this isn't like anything else shadow wise that I've seen. Heh, I've already picked up a backup!
At first glance I thought that this was identical to their Olive pigment, but I was wrong! This has much more yellow in it- so this is more vibrant! I love this! This is an olive green with yellow undertones with gold shimmer. A beautiful green!
I love green e/s so I had to buy this one. Think of Juxt mixed with Swimming. I've got compliments wearing it yesterday. If you have brown eyes/hair and medium skintone, it will suit you well. Maybe I should stock up.
Finally, a different type of green from MAC. I was growing tired of looking at greens at the MAC counter. As much as the colour is indeed very pretty, I don't see myself wearing this often enough to buy it. Pretty to look at but not versatile enough.
This is a very, very pretty kiwi green with golden frost, not unlike Chartru paint. Excellent texture. Would have bought it, but I already own a (much) less expensive identical twin: NYX lime green.
