I felt inspired to write a review after receiving so many compliments on this shadow today. Plumage is a very dark blue green, I like MACs description of "dusky peacock". It's a very unique color that makes some interesting pairings on my hazel eyes (nw25 & dark hair). One of my favorites is with femme fi (or warming trend), and mink and sable (could use greensmoke, ud chains). I also like it with bronzey colors like ud smog, greys like smoke and diamonds or stila diamond lil, or taupes like satin taupe, patinaor ud underground. It blends gorgously into the outer v and crease where I use it. I totally agree with the reviewer below that placed it in her top 5 MAC e/s!
This is easily in my top 5 mac shadows. I'm not a huge fan of blue shadow but this is BEAUTIFUL on my nw15 skin and brown eyes. I reach for it all the time and every time I'm wearing it I get soo many compliments. To be honest, matte2's are just amazing in general, so smooth, pigmented & easy to blend. This shadow is a must have for any collection and goes well with so many color combos. I personally like it with blanc type on the lid with plumage in the crease. So pretty!
I love this matte dusky blue e/s. The color is unusual because it has a gray green tinge to it. This is great for putting in the crease, and doing a smokey eye with some color. I really think this goes well with teals, greens, purples. It's different and I think it's worth adding to your collection. I love the matte finish and the pigmentation with this color. Definitely worth the purchase!
For some reason I thought it was spelled plummage, but I am sure I am wrong. I purchased the color only because it was dark and matte, my favorites to be honest. I did not even know that it was a highly desired color (always out of stock online and in MAC stores). I purchased it and let it sit in my palette for months, abandoned and unused. After watching a few youtube videos, I realized that people were using this color for a unique blend of colors, especially for smokey eyes, so I went and tried it. I love the color. In certain lightings it appears like a dark grey green, in other lights like a dark blue black, but it is not duochrome. It looks great as the outer v color, or where ever you would normally put MAC's carbon. It does not blend extremely well so work with it to see how to best apply it. It is very matte, well pigmented, and rich.
Nice e/s, not my fav as i prefer Deep Blue Green Pro Pigment, but it definately works for most skins and hair/eye colours.I had only used it once or twice till I paired it with Beautifull Iris and then the purple shadow from Mi' Lady duo.Perfect, give it a try!It's also great with bronze and gold like Rose Gold Pro Pigment.I also liked it with Hepcat, it's a nice contrast.
plumage is such a sexy color :) i think anyone with hazel or brown eye's needs this in there collection. i like to wear it all by itself packed on the lid, and if im doing a smoky eye i will replace carbon with this. and lately i use it with fix+ as an eyeliner over blanc type, the peacock blue color with a creamy color as a base give a beautiful contrast!! the only thing i don't like is its difficult to blend, but i would buy this again
This is really nice a bit itmidating cause this was for someone else but i had to use it on me i guess a good smokey eye. lol re-buy duno i jujst got it for 14.50 ! lol duno.
This has instantly became on of my favorite e/s's. It's matte and like other reviewers have stated its a dark blue/green color that will work on any skin tone imo. It's blendable, but it does take a bit more time than with other e/s finishes. I love pairing this with newly minted on inner lid and plumage on the outer third. I use this color very often as a eyeliner for my upper/lower lids. Don't be intimidated by the dark color in the pan, give it a try! (NC30-35)
I love using this colour for my blue smokey eyes. I pair this with freshwater and use vex as my highlight. I love this so much lolz
I can't think of anything bad to say about this colour. It's truly a must have if you want to achieve a blue smokey eye.
This shade is lovely on my green eyes and a nice addition to the jewel toned shadows that I have. I love it because it can be used on the lid, crease, or as a liner. My favorite is to use it in the crease and a liner on the lower lid. This pairs well with tons of other shades too. If I ever ran out, I would buy again.
