HG! Love this to highlight or blended on top of a dark color (try the plummy side of NARS Habanera!). This is a pretty white/pink/green duochrome on my eyes and one of the few es that I have ever hit pan. Will definitely repurchase!
A very versatile e/s, that can be worn alone or paired with purples and/or greens. Creamy texture that blends easily.
Gorgeous color. I use it as a wash alone. Paired with Satin Taupe, Club or Trax. Such a pretty subtle look. I'm not brave with color, and I'm almost 40, and often think that the dramatic looks should be left to the 20 year old women (wish I had learned about makeup back then!) however, this color makes me feel adventurous. Love it.
I love this color. It's a highlighter, plus you can wear it on its own. I can best describe it being an iridescent color. It may sound cheesy, but the color is awesome. It brightens up my eyes a bit when I'm wearing dark eyeshadows. I use it underneath the brow and at the innner corner of my eyes.
I own about twenty well-selected (if I do say so myself :p) MAC eyeshadows and this one is my favorite. It looks like moon dust in the pan and goes on as a dusty green-tinged white with a definite pink flash. It just glows. Of course this is great for the corners of your eye (I use it there almost every day) but this also an amazing duochrome lid color, sometimes I'll just wear this alone and it's deep enough to look beautiful.
i love this eyeshadow!!! i wear it with mont black in the crease and then define it more with carbon and i get compliments everyday when i wear it
This is a very pretty color, and it is very unique but not a must have for me
Perfect highlight color. When your unsure what to go for, reach for this--it will not disappoint. This is one of those duochrome colors- A multidimensional shade that seems to work create with all sorts of colors from browns to reds to greens to purple to pinks--I mean really everything. It looks very meh in the pan but once on it unbelievable. Definitely give it a try--luckily you have the time since it's not an LE item!!
This was one of my first eye shadow purchases from MAC. This color is very unique. I like it but I don't use it everyday. I feel it is a color every MAC addict like myself has in their collection.
Vex is a very unusual color, even by MAC's standards. It's a sort of sea foam green with purple and blue iridescence. I didn't expect to like it based on the description/swatch online, but it was beautiful in person.
Unfortunately, I have a hard time getting it to show up on my pale, neutral-cool-toned skin (NW20). I have that problem with a lot of light shadows, probably because there's not enough contrast between my skin and the shadow to make them pop, and while that's not a bad thing with neutrals, with something like this it can make me look a little sickly or strange.
Vex doesn't really go on green on my lids. I get more of a wash of subtle iridescence that could be very pretty if it showed up more. It pairs well with pale purples (like Urban Decay's Asphyxia) or greys and would look good on its own if it popped more on me.
PROS: (1) pretty, iridescent color; (2) has the potential to be versatile and fun to wear.
CONS: (1) doesn't show up well on me.
