I love the color of this and the way it looks when i first apply it. But it is hard to get other colors to go with it seeing as how it just rubs off. The shadow lasts about a whole 5 minutes on me no matter what i use as a base, and yes i've tried everything. I would love to find something this color because it is gorgeous... but this.. NO.

I guess I'm in the minority but I've found this to be one of the few pastel colors from MAC that I can pull off. I mix it with Knight Divine and carbon and it actually looks very pretty. I didn't really have a problem with the color showing up, perhaps it's because my skin is darker and my lids are pretty pigmented. I used this over a LAura Mercier e/s base (the shimmery one...forget what its called) and it showed up just fine. It looks great paired with grays. :)

I must have gotten lucky with my Iris Print pot, because I have no issues with lack of pigmentation on my lids, or with chalkiness. A really nice lavender, like a pale wild iris with silvery shimmer/sparkles/glitter/whathaveyou. Some of that whathaveyou does fall out on my cheeks, but since I do my foundation after my eyes, it isn't an issue. I really like this shade, and it goes fabulous with Entremauve pigment.

Iris print e/s looks really cool in the pot, it's a softish deep blue/purple, almost gray and cloudy looking (soft), but looks pigmented enough and has silverish/goldish glitter in it.
When I applied it though, I found it very difficult to apply, I hardly sticks to my eye, and I prime with MAC paints and marykay primer sometimes, and I have never had a problem with e/s not sticking to me, esp. not a MAC one.
It is almost dry and too powdery to deposit any color, and forget about the glitter, it didn't show up at all.
I gave it a rating of 2 just because the color is very pretty in the pot, and I'm sure that at least one person out there is making it work for them, and I"m sure it looks wonderful, but I don't reach for it very much, as I am disappointed in its poor application. I just can't get it to stick on me.

One of the worst eye shadows I have ever purchased. The shadow I was able to apply to my lid made me look like I had a black eye, which is odd because purples usually look pretty darn good on me. The shadow is also very difficult to work with. I had never used MAC before this shadow purchase and well, I guess this wasn't a great way to start off the line. I also bought a purple eyeliner on this trip too and that's not very good either.

oh, Iris Print, only negative thoughts come to mind:P I would of love to have had this work but it only dissapointed me. The color is a beautiful purple with silver sparkles IN THE POT. Once applied it looks like a mess. Though i'm no MAC M-A, but I had nothing to work with. The sparkles/shimmer don't show up and the purple is just blah. I'm an nc30

Gorgeous in the pot - a soft indigo with shimmer. If only it would show up on the eyes as it looks in the pot. What a shame.

It was so pretty in the pot. Lavender with a tad gray in there, and some glitter. When the MA tried it on me, it was so nice in the store, and great color pigment. However, when i bought it and tried to wear it today, its not at all what it looked like in the store. First off, the color was dull. Secondly, it was hard to apply to my eyes, since the color would rub off itself. I will be returning this and getting a better lavender shade with atleast some shimmer or sheen to it.

I'm in Australia and so I bought this product from overseas sight unseen as it had yet ot be released here. I have to say that it is prettier in the pot and the colour payoff is not as good as with other products. I have howver just discovered the handyness of the Shadesticks, and by putting a think layer of the Beige-ing one on then applying this over the top makes a huge difference.
It's not a colour I would wear everyday, but was something I had to have. I'm happy I got it but glad that it's LE and I won't need to get it again.

I am on the fence about this e/s. It is a true indigo blue (meaning blue w/lavender undertones). The pigmentation was okay. I didn't have trouble in that area, but the glitter that was showing in the pot didn't really transfer to the eyes. The color was sort of flat and it did seem a little dry. As this is LE it came in typical MAC pot form so the packaging was okay. I will keep this b/c it isn't similar to anything else in my collection & I will continue to work with this e/s to see if I can't find some lovely way to apply. If that happens, I will update!

Iris Print looks better in the pot than when applied, IMO. First of all, my brush barely picks up any pigment from it, and I've tried using MAC 242, 239, and 213. I had to use it wet for it to even show up at all. Secondly, the color itself is not that impressive. In the pot, the sparkles are visible, but they don't show up on my eyelids. WTF? It actually reminds me a lot of Idol Eyes both in color and quality.

This looked so pretty and sparkly in the pan, but on my lids it was a chalky, flat, dull lavender with scant sparkles. I know others have complained that this was not pigmented enough, but on me (brown-eyed, cool PPP) it was way too deep. My boyfriend commented on how "dramatic" this shadow was--and that was at the end of the day, after most of it had worn off! Of course, I'm usually a neutral-eyes kind of girl, so for those who like deep colors this might be okay, or even a bit tame. It just wasn't flattering on me, and I swapped it away.

I agree with the general consensus that Iris Print is a very pretty shade in the pot, but has no color payoff. To me Iris Print is lavender with gold glitter. A unique shade that I had to get my hands on. On my light skin, the color just seems to disappear. However, I'm most happy with the results that I get with this when I apply (or at times pack on) Iris Print over a darker shadow or Violet Underground eye kohl in order to get the full impact and girly-ness of this shadow. Thankfully, the glitter, or fine shimmer that is in Iris Print doesn't scream "I'm trying to be 13 years old again!", nor does it fall all over my face. When all is said and done, Iris Print is still a very lovely shade for the spring time, and with the right combinations of shadows and liners works well with my skin tone and helps bring out my green eyes.

I like this!!! Its kind of a...darkish purplish blueish. Its not the best..but its nice. Will not repurchase because I have other similar eyeshadows that show up better

I am in love with this eyeshadow. In the pot in looks like a purplish blue with shimmer in it but on it comes out more purple/lavender on me. I took off one lippie for that because I would love it if it did come out looking like it does in the packaging but the color is still beautiful. It's not very shimmery like it looks in the packaging either. I love to pair this with Stars N' Rockets and Vanilla pigment. I'm sad that it's LE because if not I would repurchase. But then again I've only reached the bottom of one of my e/s which is Retrospekt.

Iris Print is a eyeshadow from the CultureBloom collection released February 2006. Its limited edition so only available in flip top black pot. Retails for $13.50. I was so excited about this collection but the lack of pigment in the shadows is super disappointing. Iris Print is a stunning blued violet with golden sparkles that are very finely milled. However, on the skin, its just a very faint light greyed violet. You lose the vibrancy in the pot, and its kinda dull. I wear this on the lid and crease but I was very disappointed with this color and formula.

I like this color - and I have fairly pigmented eyelids - but it still shows up well. It looks awesome with the Violent Underground eye kohl. I probably won't use it often enough to repurchase, but since it makes my hazel eyes pop, I would.

This is a pretty spring color, but it looks best when used to add dimension to a lilac shadow or when used with stila's kitten eye shadow. The gold flecks are subtle, so it can be used to create a fresh look for day.

At the counter, this beautiful lavender shadow dusted with gold shimmer/micro glitter really caught my eye. When I got home and applied it I was HUGELY disappointed. The shadow is dull, chalky, with little color pay-off, and the gold shimmer is barely visible. I tried it both dry and wet. back to the store it goes.

A very pretty lilac shade that really brings out my green eyes. It's a large size e/s so you get a ton of product. My only complaint is that opposed to other MAC e/s that I've tried this one didnt seem to very well pigmented.
