This was the first MAC eyeshadow that I bought, and was really the deciding factor in my buying more of their products :) Like all veluxe pearl shadows, it is so wonderfully smooth to apply, and the color payoff is AMAZING. The color is somewhat peachy/coral (as opposed to straight pink) with a golden sheen, which is a very flattering combination. Although this eyeshadow can be used alone, I find it best to be paired with a bit of a crease contrast color, just to add a bit more depth. I will most definitely buy this shade again, simply because it really brings out my brown/hazel eyes so well and is so easy to apply!
I have pale porcelain skin, brown eyes, and black hair for ref.
I've always been afraid to buy pink and orange shades (or anything with red tones) cuz it gives me the red-eyed look, but Expensive Pink does not and actually helps to bring out my eyes I find. When you look at it in the pan, it's like a light coral colour with a gold sheen, and when applied onto the lids, the gold sheen does not show up, so it's a pure shimmery light coral colour on me.
The texture is amazing as with all Veluxe Pearls. Great spreadibility, soft, creamy, very blendable.
I love to wear it with Smut and the new Solar Bits in Black Ore on top in the outter corners! The effect is GORGEOUS! lol
I purchased this shadow as a repromotion in the Neo Sci-Fi collection, and I'm loving it so far. The finish of this shadow is fabulous, and the double colored look it gives when applied really gives a lot of pop to the eye without it being too obvious. I use this color mostly as a lid cover, with something a little darker in the crease for contour.
Looooove this e/s. definitely an all season color but would look gorgeous in the summer. its more on the peachy coral side than the pink side. this color reminds me alot of mythology (which has a lot of glitter fallout) so if u love mythology and would prefer less glitter this color is a MUST! sooo beautiful as an all over color! =]
Love it! I'm all about MAC's veluxe pearl shadows these days and this color is one of my favorites. First I'll quickly mention why I love the veluxe pearl formula so much: It's smooth and shimmery, without being too frostly. The pigmentation is amazing and it's easily buildable and blendable. Now for the actual color: I'm NC30 with light brown eyes and brown (often highlighted) hair. Expensive Pink looks amazing on me. I use it as a crease color and love it most paired with All That Glitters, or Woodwinked. I can't wait to try it with Sumptious Olive as well. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!
This is definitely a very interesting colour. As everyone else said, it's more peachy/coral with a hint of medium pink and golden/copper flecks. As I am quite fair, I cannot use it as an all over the lid colour but it looks great as a crease colour on top of Mac's perky paintpot ( Fafi collection), although a dark eyeliner is needed as well to avoid the "red eyes" look. Overall, a nice and edgy addition to my MU collection.
I have pale Asian skin which is neither too yellow nor too blue/pink. This mid-tone pink has goldish undertones (the picture on the website makes it look lighter than it really is). It's a very pretty color and with a good sheen that is not tacky. Goes well with my dark browns or by itself.
texture =amazing. color is really pretty too, but I like to stick to my neutrals and pick me up shades.
I was skeptical on this one but it's turning out to be a favorite. Looks great with Antiqued and either Woodwinked or All That Glitters. I also love to wear black eyeliner with this combo. Really brings out my brown eyes. On me, a bright coral pink. (I had considered Paradisco but seeing as how that one is more orange, I think I should stick with EP.) Great shadow from MAC!
Very pretty colour. It's similar to NYX Flaminco e/s but NYX is more on the lilac/warm pink golden side vs MAC EP is orange/pink golden. I use it as a inner corner highlight. At first I thought it wouldn't look right with my olive tan tone but with the right combo (I've used it with Post Haste e/s) it makes a lovely subtle difference.
