My first eyeshadow from MAC and hands down the best! This is such a beautiful color, makes every eye color pop! In my opinion this is a must have for everyone! Love it:)

At this moment I would not purchase Coppering again. It is just too overpowering for my coloring and seems to turn colors on my skin. When I first apply the color it looks just like the color in the pan a true rusty coppery color (same color as a copper wire) however, after a few minutes it ends up looking even brighter than when I applied it and almost a fiery red pink color instead. It just ends up giving my eyes an inflamed look much like Cranberry and Plum Dressing did. I think Coppering would look amazing on people with a much darker complexion than my own. I tried to tone it down with neutrals but the bright red/orang/pink color still showed through instead of mixing with the neutrals. Such a rich pigmented color just didn't work for me.

This color, like Bronze, is one I use to make my blue eyes stand out. Coppering works better for me in the summer, when my skin has a bit of color on it. I tend to wear it with black eyeliner on the waterline/tightline, and take it under the eye as well as all over the lid. It is a mesmerizing color for a smokey eye look on a fair skinned and blue eyed individuals. A heavy black or even burgundy mascara is perfect with this eyeshadow.
It's part of my blue eye arsenal, and I highly recommend it for yours!

Coppering is one of the most amazing colors that let's blue eyes "pop." Use your normal eyeshadows, but place "coppering" in the inside corner of your eyelid and blend with a stubby brush. Because red and blue are on opposite sides of the color wheel, the red of "coppering" is just enough to make blue eyes sing!
I only give it a "two lipsticks" for packaging because it shattered when I dropped it on the bathroom floor!

This is absolutely stunning!
I was debating for a long time whether this eyeshadow would suit my skin tone and eye colour, and I am so glad I finally tried it out. It is a gorgeous coppery bronze colour on my medium brown eyes and makes them stand out in a very unique way.
I layered this over a subtle pink eyeshadow and the lined the upper lash line with Mac's Superslick Liquid Eyeliner in Nocturnal. Who knew it would look so beautiful?! But it truly did and my other half (who suggested this combo while he treated me to some Mac makeup - lucky me!) really couldn't stop looking at my eyes.
So ladies do try this with pinks and even accents of silver and you will look, truthfully, amazing. Thank you Mac for this gem!

This is one of very few MAC eyeshadows that I just don't like. I am not sure if it is just the texture of the shadow on my lid or that it is unflattering in combination with my skin tone but it actually makes my eyes look garish. I have brown eyes and would have thought this color would be complimentary to them but it is not. Of course, this is the exception as I stated - on the whole I love and use most of MAC's eyeshadows, especially the veluxe pearls.

The only way I like to wear this is as a transition shade out of a smokey eye... The texture, pigmentation and blendability are great, but I just think the color doesn't suit my fair skintone enough to give it more than 3 lippies. I have a couple pics on my blog of different ways to wear this eyeshadow. Check it out if you would like to get some ideas. www.eyeshadowaa.blogspot.com

Warning: this shadow is not for the faint of heart! It's very pigmented and applies smoothly & beautifully like all veluxe pearls. My NW35 skin "absorbs" most golden undertones and with this shadow it appears as a slightly burnished red no orangey-ness like how it does on the girl in the 1st picture. I actually love that and use just this all around the eye & pair it w/ lots of black gel liner on top lashes and waterline as well as lots and lots of mascara and it looks amazing, but definitely might not be everyone's cup of tea. I recommend you going in and trying it before you buy it.

This color is gorgeous and th color payoff is great. Unfortunately I have a hard time getting it to work on my cool toned skin.

Beautiful shadow that works great for my NC40 skin. Coppering is warm golden toned red copper with super pigmentation. I like using this shade for easy daytime looks or create a different spin on a smoky eye. Coppering works as a lid, v and crease shade for me. Very versatile and fun to use.
