I love this color. I am so sad it is LE, but I think expensive pink from the veluxe pearl line looks similar. It is a bronzish pinkish shimmery color.

Sweeten up is a really gorgeous peachy coral pink with golden shimmer, i love this colour.

I love this color. Its so special in the sense that it's pink, peach, and gold all at the same time depending on how the light hits it. It's a very unique shade (I've heard it being compared to Expensive Pink...it's similar but not an exact match.) I love to pair this with darker pinky/purple shades. And it doesn't hurt that it looks great on an olived toned GGG like myself. I would repurchase it if it weren't for it being limited edition.

MAC NW15 to 20, hazel/green eyes, medium brown hair with a little gray (LOL): I might be one of the few who did not like this shadow despite it being a *very* pretty color in the pot. My main complaint was the hard texture. It was difficult to load up the brush, and hence the color payoff was low. I've already promised this one in a pending swap :-(

I am so happy I bought this when it was out. You can use it as shadow and as blush, but I find with the frost e/s that the shadow in the pot gets these little bumps? This looks great with Phloof, and also as a lighter colour with dark purples. If you can get your hands on this, it's a keeper!

Sweeten Up is a gorgeous pink/coral with golden shimmer. It looks great on my blue eyes. The Frost formula blends easily and has good staying power. I would repurchase this colour, if it were available. Me: N1/NC15, blue eyes, blonde hair.

MAC makes a unique stand-out eye shadow, and it's Limited Edition! Aargh. This is the color that I wanted Paradisco to be. It is a coral color on me, with hints of gold and pink. It is stunning paired with gold colors (which will bring out the gold in this eyeshadow). It makes a beautiful "sunset" look.
I can't rave enough about this color. I am a blonde, blue eyed MMM.

Oh my goodness!! I am so glad I came across this shadow and was able to receive it in swap. This shade is completely amazing!! A bright peachy pink with slight shimmer and lots of pigmentation. Very flattering shade for MMM's and olive skin. It just looks so pretty! :) Enjoy.

I would definitely buy this again - if only it wasn't LE!!!!
My colleague at work had this on - she is dark skinned and it looked amazing with a swish of black liner.
I'm more lighter toned and bought this with Shroom - what a great combo.
This is like NARS Orgasm made for eyes - just so pretty! If you can't get it, don't go for Paradisco, it doesn't look even half as good

This is one of my favorite eyeshadow colors to wear, it really brightens up your face. It's such a gorgeous shade of pink, but it's not too pink, and it has a gorgeous gold tone to it.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Maybe I applied it wrong or paired it was the wrong colors. This just didn't look very nice on my skin tone(MMM with yellow). UD's X is much more wearable for me.

omg. i love this color. it is by far my fave pink. i bought two so i could hoard it... i hate that it's LE *pout*... as everyone says, it is a gorgeous pinky coral that flashes gold... looks incredible with gleam or better yet UD's X. brightens up tired eyes. sweet/sexy... as my husband put it, "i don't know whether to take you to bed or take you to church!"

Finally reviewing this, I've had sweeten up for months now and I love it. I'm a GGG, NC35, Asian with black hair. On me sweeten up is a pretty pink with golden shimmer. It wasn't until I paired it with beauty marked that I realized the full potential of this shade, changed it from sweet to sexy as!!

This would be the result of sushi flower and paradisco having a baby. On me it looks fabulous. It really is pretty and feminine. Tons of frost though, so keep that in mind.
I prefer this over Sushi Flower, but I choose Paradisco over this.
It's a gorgeous mix though.

I am in love with this eyeshadow! For starters I am blonde, blue eyed and NC15 FYI. I love this colour as orange is the opposite of blue so good for making blue eyes pop but as I dont want orange eyeshadow this pinky coral with gold shimmer does exactly the same job as it has a slight orange tone but is not orange. It looks gorgeous paired with crimsonette or nocturnell and sometimes i use it over pink venus or vapor. I also use it to highlight my cheekbones when wearing a peachy blush and it just gives you that extra "lift" and brings the whole face together. 5/5 will try and swap for or repurchase if possible (LE) when finished.

This is one of my favorite MAC shadows -- a beautiful, shimmery, warm coral pink that is just gorgeous. Pinker than Paradisco, more coral than Sushi Flower (plus shimmer!), it is surprisingly wearable. I wore it quite a bit over the holidays, but I still wear it lightly on the lid during the day for just a little glimmer -- I love the way it makes my black eyes pop! For a stunning night look, I wear this on the lid with Cat Cosmetics' Curious eye shadow (deep plum touched with gold) in the crease and smoky eyeliner -- really stunning. It's too bad it's a limited edition -- definitely add it to your collection before it disappears!

I love this shadow! I totally dig pinky/golds and this was a perfect combination with a bit of a coral tint. It reminds me of MAC melon pigment, but prettier.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Oily Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
*edit 2/25* this has turned out to be amazing. really brightens my eyes. used with a lime green shadow smudged around my eyes and a forest green (meadow) as a liner, my brown eyes look really bright and -huge- (well, for me at least hahah).
Looks shockingly bright in the pan, but goes on a bit more subtlely. This shows up a lot more pink on me (barely see the coral). Even when I apply lightly, the shadow is rather pigmented. Still, this is a fun color and I love MAC e/s.

This is a LE eyeshadow from the Holidazzle collection. If you don't have one, go find one! It's like a shimmering Sushi Flower, but more on the coral side. I pair this with Phloof! on lids, Sweeten Up in creases, White Frost under brows. I get a lot of double-takes when I wear this, lol.

When I tried this on the back of my hand I was sure this wasn't going to work on me. It's been described as a pinky coral with gold shimmer and that's pretty accurate. Now that I've played with it I'm delighted that it goes with so much. I've used it on the inner corners of my eye with greens (aveda's verdigris and colourwarsh), plums (crimsonette) and blue greys (dark soul, UD's envy). With this colour a little goes a long way and I like to use it mainly to add interest to a monochromatic look. It's gorgeous.
