This is just SOO ordinary its CRAZY, i have wet n wild eyeshadows that are much longer wearing and more pigmented as well!
Its very hard to work with, and its just basically a smokey dark brown, hard to work with eyeshadow, with shimmer sparkles in it, that doesn't show. Ridicilous price, and overated.
I love this color! It is a very warm medium brown. Perfect for the crease. I am nw30 and it looks awesome on my lids as well. I can use a light hand to create a sheer wash of this on my lids and deepen it in the crease and add another shade as a highlight and I'm set. In the summer when my skin is darker I wear this during the day a lot, in the dead of winter when I'm a lot paler it can sometimes be too much though. It is ver blendable and pigmented, a little goes a long way, you definately don't need to "dig" to get color on your brush. I will buy this over and over again.
My favorite MAC shadow to date ... I love this color! It sets off my hazel eyes (I'm older and just paired it with gesso as an inner corner highlighter over painterly paintpot as a primer). I think I'll always want to have this one nearby.
Damn. I wanted to love this eyeshadow. Unfortunately, I hate it. I'm aware that "hate" is a strong word... but I hate it. I researched a lot before buying it and due to impatience, I didn't swatch it in a store before buying. I thought it would be a perfect warm brown, but on me, it's an awful dirty-brown-orange colour. I can only just make it work by adding a tiny bit to warm up cooler browns. The texture, however, is lovely.
I hate to bring down the rating. I know it's a much-loved eyeshadow by many people, and this is evident from it's high ratings and good reviews, but Mulch just wasn't for me.
My very first MAC eyeshadow...
This is not as smooth or soft as my Naked palette shadows, but blending is not too hard.. It is a very nice brown with a little shimmer. A bit of this and some eyeliner is really pretty..
However, I find that if I put more than a little on, it looks a little dirty on my Asian lids.. So I use this sparingly.
On days you don't want to put on too much makeup, a sweep of Mulch on the outer corners is nice.
Great neutral shimmer brown colour for the crease. It is very smooth in texture and blendable to create a soft look.
My new favorite eyeshadow for a bronzy look. I love this damn color! It's so pretty for spring/ summer especially with all these new bright lippies taking over this is perfect to keep the eye natural but helping it too stand out on its own at the same time without looking like to much. Im nc45 mix with nc 50 and i wear this as a lid color with nothing else or with texture in the crease blended out with my 224 lightly and this makes beautiful smokey eyes and some blacktrack to line my eyes with lots of mascara and it's just so seductive. Mulch doesn't create a harsh look that some browns can, thats why i do this as a lid color mainly and even for those days i want to keep it
soft, this on my lid packed on with my 239 with some mascara, with coppertone blush and some viva glam v lip gloss and I'm good to go! Pls try this if you haven't. Highly recommended.
The name 'Mulch' leaves a lot to be desired, which is a shame as this eyeshadow is incredible. I use this most days in my crease to create some subtle shading and also when I'm going out to create a gorgeous smoky eye. It really brings out the green in my hazel eyes.
This color is gorgeous on brown or hazel eyes. Its shimmery, nicley pigmented and a little goes a long way. I use it as a liner atop my lash line then blend out. Beautiful. I agree with one of the reviewers as far as the name, it does indeed leave something to be desired.
Mulch is a nice shimmery soft brown, great for crease. pigmentation is good and texture is smooth. it's easy to apply and blend, making it very workable. the color is nothing fabulous though, just a basic shimmry brown.
