I bought this as I'd seen it used on FOTD pictures and thought it was a beautiful colour. I understood there would be some fallout and it could be tricky to make work and I was ready for that.
However, I get no colour payoff using it, only large glitter pieces that end up falling all over my face. I've tried using it wet and it just looks gritty. I've had more success when I've tried over bases like paints, however the payoff isn't enough to make this worth the effort.
This colour was soooo disappointing! It looks lovely and then even when i swatched it, it was lovely....but on my eye it looks like a big dry mess ! It looks like rough skin or something even though my eyes are perfectly moisturised (thanks to my EyeCon-Benefit :).
Really upset with this product MAC...the texture lets it down !!
As much as I love the colour of this eyeshadow, the texture of this lustre is a nightmare. The particles seemed to separate as soon as I swiped it out of the pan, and left a mess around my eyes, even if I patted it on.
I can't stand the consistency of this eyeshadow. It is not blendable, it is coarse and glittery. My most despised eyeshadow from mac! I gave it one lippie for the color, because the color is gorgeous. If you like the color, I suggest Lorac Serenity eyeshadow which is almost the same color as Honey Lust, except it is slightly more wearable and prettier, and it applies like a dream. Serenity is soft and luxurious, and never ever gritty like Honey Lush. And the fallout, don't even get me started on that!
I left this behind many times over the past 5 years due to extreme fallout! Finally the MA said put it on something wet. So now I either use a wet brush, eyedrops, or directly after putting on my paint. (no drying time.. one eye at a time--paint then shadow and repeat on the other side) Now I can see the light! And it is the prettiest light champagne with pink/bronze color! Brightens the entire eye area.
Hmm, I wonder if this will work with Mythology...the other Lustre I've shunned for life??
UPDATE: I am totally digging the wet finger application suggested a few doors down :) Thanks
This is a really pretty color, i have brown eyes and it gives that subtle bronze shimmer for a night out or classy evening look, its really sparkly though and it sorta falls loose after awhile, however i suggest using an eyeshadow primer before hand -such as too faced shadow insurance or urbdan decay primer potion- this really brings out the color and makes it stay put so there is no loose shadow coming off your face, overall a good eyeshadow try it on before you purchase it to make sure you like it though!
my MA used this on me during my wedding events, on the day that I wanted a more natural look, she applied this wet on top of a base as just a wash. I think it looked fabulous with just some mascara and liner. It really brightened my eyes and made them pop. There is a lot of fall out, but I have been unable to find a color with a comparable finish.
red/bronze color. not too flattering for brown eyes, but that's not why i'm giving this 3 lippies because on blue eyes this color looks great.
this is a lustre and yes...lustres are notorious for their messy texture but this is just too much! wayyyy too much glitter fallout and just messy to work with. ughh
This is a great shadow that everyone must have.
I would probably buy this again just because the color is truly gorgeous in the sunlight, but the color payoff, the consistency and just about everything else about this e/s sucks
