I LOVE this eyeshadow. It is very versatile, and there are many beautiful looks you can create with this. The dark part makes a great, unique smoky eye, the lightest is a fabulous highlighter, and the main green color really is fresh and beautiful.

I usually steer well clear of green e/s, but when I saw swatches of fresh green mix I was sold. The greens fit perfectly togheter and they haven't got heavy yellow undertones (i.e. MAC lucky green).
The make a every day eyelook togheter and add a darker green you have a evening smokey look (I use the dark green from the Sleek Storm palette).
The fallout unlike odd couple (another electro flash eyeshadow) is minimum to nothing. It goes on smooth and blends easily. The shadow last a whole day (if it is out over a primer (i use TFSI).
In EU this is a permanent so that is a big plus, I would definitly repurchase if this runs out (wich it might do because i love it so much)
The price that I paid was quite steep, €20,50 but i think it was worth it. I my only con is that my packging feels flimsy and rigid.
edit: i just bought NYX horse radish jumbo eyeshadow pencil and it works amazing as a base for this colour. It makes both of the greens deeper and show up better.

This mineralized eye shadow is beautiful. This is the only one I got from the collection but I'm glad I did get this one. The lime color tones down when it's on my eyelids, and I normally use the darker green veining side for my crease & ricepaper as a highlight such a great look! It's just enough color, but is also a lighter look to wear. I do wish I got one with more dark veining in it, because I'm creating a huge crater in mine! lol.

I debated on buying this for a while because it looked so bright in the pot but I'm so glad I did. The darker veined side is a soft, shimmering dark forest green and the light side looks alarmingly lime in the pot, but blends down to a soft gold/green. I love the look! If you like the bright lime effect you can layer on more to keep it true to the color in the pot. So, its very versatile! I use it over the painterly paint pot and it lasts without creasing. It also has good pigmentation. I'm a mineralize shadow fan and this one did not disappoint. I would definitely repurchase!

I absolutely love the colors in this product. The green reminds me of lucky green and the veined side produces a beautiful smoked effect. The only problem I have with this (and it may be user error) is creasing. I used this with Fast Response Eye Serum and Soft Ochre Paint pot and it creased almost before I left the house. I may need to invest in a Too Faced or Primer Potion, but in all I love this product!!!! Totally worth the $20 price tag!

Gorgeous Gorgeous Gorgeous! I love this eyeshadow, it's to die for! To start off, I have went on the website and thought about which eyeshadow to purchase, I had 5 choices in my head. I went to a MAC counter where a wonderful MUA was there. She's so nice and just wonderful! I went there and swatched the eyeshadow before purchasing (as we all do, I think? lol). Beautiful pigmentation, gorgeous colour pay-off (I know same thing lol), the texture is very smooth and there was nice shimmer to it but not too much. The MUA there told me a lot about the eyeshadow, how it was a best seller (how can it not be? just look at it!). She told me I could apply it dry and wet. She even showed me how to apply it wet (mind you, I do know how to apply it wet, but she was nice enough to show me anyway). The colour was so vibrant, man the green made me drool! However, you should note that, as you you use your eyeshadow brush to pick up the colour, the eyeshadow tends to flake since it's very smooth, so be careful and remember to shake off the excess as there will be fall-out. LOL, anyways, I will definately repurchase this eyeshadow (as a backup) and a couple of others! LOL, love love loveeeeee!

Beautiful pigment! I didn't even have to wet it and it came out so strong on my skin. Love it!

Love this product. I have the honey/golden not so much caramel type of complexion that compares to beyonce's tone or Meagon Good (just to give you guys an idea) and these colors look fantastic on me!. They have replaced my favorite Lancome eye shadow (that's been discontinued) 'Dew' and my next favorite eye shadow 'honeymoon'. On me the lime green side goes on very golden and warm ... and i love it!. Nice surprise. I get this color when i'm layering it and when I leave it on solo (always with primer under it). The other shade (mixed with black) comes off that perfect shade of green that I've been looking for in smashbox, estee lauder, christian dior . . . you name it, i tried it. I finally found the color to replace 'Dew' for me and that's the blended color. It's like a more darker shade of green with extreme subtle hints of gold flecks in it. Marvelous and well worth the price. It's highly .... highly pigmented. So a little really does go a very long way. It's a bit on the pricey side but it can easily last someone for an ample amount of time. It pays off :)

Mine isn't as dark as the one in the pict. the vein side is more light blue-ish w/ a few very small dark veins so when swatched this just comes out 2 diff limes on me. This is a great spring eyeshadow and will last me pretty much forever due to its size.

Boy is this a gorgeous MES!! One of the colors is a golden green while this other is a bluish green. They are both very soft and easy to blend.
I find color payoff to be good with this duo unlike others have said. The bluish green is very pigmented while the golden green goes on a bit more gold but if you layer it on you will get the color that it is in the pan on your lids. It does have fallout like all MES's but it is not a lot so there is really nothing to cry about. You get soo much product too for only 19.5 its a great deal for a great shadow. I would rebuy if I ever ran out.

Gorgeous looking in the pot, but I find the actual color very light! Please note that I am very fair skinned, with pink undertones and blond/red hair. I just love greens, but this one is really light and not great for blending.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Hazel
I love this duo! It's such a shame it's limited edition :( Very, very pretty colors. I'm not big on greens but this is gorgeous! The only bad thing is the fallout. Other then that, great!

This color would look divine on any shade of brown skin. I saw a picture of a woman with an eyeshadow that was a lovely greenish gold that appeared to be fresh green mix so I went to MAC to see and lo and behold it was. I don't even have to wear any other color with it. It is a beautiful color for spring and summer. A sheer was across my eyelid is all I need. Best paired with a nude lip.

I was disappointed in this, given the great reviews. It did not suit my eye color (dark brown), and I can wear just about any shade usually. UPDATE: Tried this again and also foiled and liked it very much. I just put wuldn't buy again because I NEVER use any makeup product up completely except for maybe a lipstick or two in my 40+ years of wearing makeup.

Gorgeous looking in the pot, but I find the actual color (especially the brighter green side) a bit harsh on. Please note that I am very fair skinned, with pink undertones and red hair. I use it occasionally wet as an eyeliner with a lighter shade. Wouldn't buy again.

This is just OK for my skin tone. In the package, it's a beautiful "fresh" green. But on me, it's just kind of yellow.. sad! But I still love this product, nonetheless. Just make sure you swatch it :)

So im generally not a fan of MACs mineralized shadows due to lack of staying power and fallout, but I love this one!! I havent had any of those problems with this one, and the color comes out soooo pretty, just the green ive been searching for after finishing my springtime skipper... just be super careful as I have broken a few of these shadows by dropping them!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
Grabbed this shadow at my local CCO and it is amazing. this was my first ever green shadow purchase and i have to say the solid green side is so pretty it blends well with the other side and i can do a pretty green smokey eye look
Really love this shadow
the texture is soft touch of shimmer and glides on smooth

This duo is *gorgeous*. The bright green side is very yellow-based and looks almost bright greenish gold on my skin. The marbled side is absolutely gorgeous, with lighter mint-teal green and a darker olive green. The shadow goes on quite smoothly and lasts a very long time, also.
The only unfortunate thing about this (and a lot of mineralize eyeshadows, as far as I can gather) is the fallout. The fallout is pretty bad, just applying it and I have to use a lash comb to brush out my lashes before applying mascara. Then, there's quite a bit of fallout throughout the day that accumulates on my lashes and gets on my lashline which can be quite irritating, especially if I wear this eyeshadow two days in a row.
I still love it though, it's totally gorgeous. I'm going to try making a mixing medium for it in the future.
