I really love this shade. Yes, its dark-ish but its just such a pretty pretty olivey sparkly green. That green and swimming are my fav green's from MAC.
Perfect for a smokey eye or a great under eye liner.
Humid is a gorgeous, sultry green shadow which looks great on medium skin tones and dark brown eyes. It has a hint of shimmer to it, and is akin to a deep emerald green. In fact, it is very similar to MAC Emerald Green pigment (though I think the pigment has a *tad* more yellow to it).
You can get a beautiful muted effect with this shade, but it's tricky. Just make sure to blend like crazy or you'll look like a clown.
Or you can really punch it up and get a dramatic look. This isn't really something I can pull off unless I use a small amount as an accent instead of applying it all over my lid. This is mainly because most greens (even lighter shades like Swimming or Springtime Skipper) look strange on me if I use a heavy hand.
So what I usually do is use Humid with a heavy hand (I also use a primer and Lucky Jade shadestick underneath) but only apply it to a small portion of my eyelid (usually mid-lid). I use Ricepaper or something similar as a lid to brow wash. I'll add a lighter green like Swimming to another part of the lid and blend. Then I usually will bring in black at the crease and outer margins.
I've rocked Humid with gold e/s, orange shades like Firespot, and I've also played with purples. As long as I do this, it looks fine.
This shade on PPP's with certain hair and eye colors can look so amazing! I also think this looks amazing on olive skin. As for my NC30 skin with strong golden undertones, it makes me look a bit sallow if I use too much. It's just my personal struggle with green e/s which sucks since green is my favorite color!
I think Humid is a must-have in any MAC addict's collection though. Definitely a keeper...
Some of mac's eyeshadows are really gorgeous, and i think one of them is humid. Color is shimmery deep forest green and it's highly pigmented and blends well. I use it with lilacs and golds it looks beautiful.
"Humid" is an extremely gorgeous venomous frosted jungle green in the pot. On the lids it is a very difficult to blend, untrue to the pot color. That being said, it is still a pretty shade. Sort of a dirty inky green. It actually, believe it or not, is a staple shade for me on days when i want to do NATURAL makeup. Its that neutral. Its very hard to blend right, but looks a lot truer to the pot color when used over "Gorgeous Gold" eyeshadow, but that, in turn, makes it STILL more difficult to blend. I wouldnt buy it again, Im on the hunt for a better formulated frosted green, but I'll definitley enjoy it while I have it.
This is a HOT green on my skin tone. I absolutely love how it's a frost, so you get a nice shimmer with the emerald/dark green shade. And the color applies just like it appears. Absolutely gorgeous on my tan skin and with dark brown eyes. I combined it with cocobeach and melon pigment tonight. I can't believe I waited so long to buy this. I'm sure I can come up with a billion different combos with this shadow. A must have for green-lovers!
I'm always on the lookout for fabulous green eye makeup and this is another winner! I like MAC shadows in general and have several but Humid is a very pretty true green. I love to use it wet as a liner or dry over my Fluidline to soften. The frost finish gives just enough life and vibrance without being too much. I also have Greensmoke and Sumptuous Olive but Humid is much more of a vibrant green. The nice thing about this one is that you can make it appear subtle or really glam up your look with it. A must have if you love green shadows!
This was not exactly a green I was looking for when I visited the counter. I wanted something brighter, but the SA told me Humid makes a nice shade on the crease if I want to do smokey eyes, but I was a little hesitant because I don't like the Frost formula. I guess the SA was right afterall! I can wear Humid with almost all the greens/olives I have or certain blues and golds (I'm a Asian, NC25) and this is one of the few Frost texture shadows I love! Humid is quite close to Milani's Clover, but I hate Clover! It is not as pigmented as MAC's and doesn't stay on my lids even with UDPP.
I will definitely repurchase this if I ever hit the pan! continued >>
i super love this eyeshadow... i find it unique. it can be used to create a smokey eye effect. :D
As much as i adore the colour, i do get some colour-fall out under my eyes, whereas i NEVER do with UD Mildew. Mildw was my fave green until i found this. i'm currently trying to find out how to make it work best - without using a primer - but until then i'll be sticking to my mildew. they are similar colours but humid has just the edge. Beautiful nonetheless.
This product is awesome... I love it. I am NC50 and it looks great.. I am a makeup artist and I use it on my client.. It is worth the price.
