this is a pretty color, but it's a lot more gold/bronze than green once it's on the eyes. I wish it had more green in it. really pretty color for fall :)

Amazing texture, one of the best green eye shadows on the market. Great for fair skin and hazel or brown eyes. I pair it with Brun on the crease and the outer V (blended out). Amazing result!

I have a love/hate relationship with Sumptuous Olive. It's a beautiful shade and perfect for an olive toned smokey eye look. This is the love part.
The hate part is that it's a bit too 'yellow' for my skin tone. (Asian, NC30/35) Consequently, if I don't use another shadow to counteract the yellow, I end up looking 'sallow'. Yech!
I've paired it with All That Glitters and Woodwinked and it works all right with Sumptuous Olive but it's still not one of my favourite looks.
This colour would suit those with more fair skin tones or South Asian skin tones, I think.
I still love the texture but it's not a colour I reach for too often.

This is by far the best green shade colored eyeshadow I have in my palette. The color payoff is absolutely wonderful. It's a veluxe pearl so you know the color payoff is fantastic. The shade is very blendable where you can wear it dark or wear it light. It really depends on how much you use. Hands down the best shade of warm green you can find out there. WOW. Get a backup of this just in case, I did.

With my green eyes, I am always worried green eyeshadow will be too matchy-matchy. But this shade is sumptuous! Its got enough gold in it to make it more neutral than broccoli green. Its truly stunning. I bought this shadow without seeing it in person and just based on photos and reviews from MUA and I am so glad I did. Another homerun shadow from MAC!

I have fair skin and blue eyes. Totally terrified of colourful eyeshadows. This is very subtle though. Gold green olive colour. Awesome to work with, great quality shadow.

I tried this color on a whim... and while I usually like darker colors, this color is nice. It dosen't have the depth I thought that it would; it is a very light color, but a very pretty, true olive color. The only reason I won't repurchase is because it's very similar to other colors that I already own (Woodwinked, for example). But i love the texture and feel that if you have light green/blue eyes, this color would be perfect for you.

I adore this eyeshadow, I think it may be my favourite one of all time. It is a gorgeous olive gold green colour that goes sooo well with my NC25 skin. It is a veluxe pearl formula so you know it's going to be soft and blendable and velvety, just perfection and not too much shimmer. It goes well with so many colours, my current favourite look is sumptuous olive on the lid, wedge in the crease and brun in the outer v. It can be worn in the daytime as a simple wash on the lid or you can really make it sultry and smoky for night time with a dark crease colour. It goes well with my brown eyes especially, it brings out the little tinge of green I have in them. I can't describe how amazing this shadow is and once I finish it you bet I'll be out to buy another one. I'd recommend it to anyone who is a little scared of trying out greens because it is a little darker and golden so it's a good starting point, and it is very versatile and flattering. 5/5

Beautiful neutral green veluxe pearl... I absolutely love this shadow on the lid with cork in the crease. The best way to make it show up on the lid as it does in the pan is to use UDPP, which is the best invention EVER (imo). I am a NC25 and have green eyes which this shadow brings out beautifully. Even though they say you shouldn't wear green if you have green eyes, I strenuously disagree. MAC has limited greens that I think are worth purchasing, but this and humid are definitely worth the price.
If you are looking to spice up your neutral looks try sumptuous olive, you won't be sorry!
