I didn't like Fig 1. to begin with because I thought it didn't go on very well. Turned out I was using the wrong brush for it; a fluffier brush works much better. I started out with Vanilla from lashline to brow, then covered the lid with Fig. 1 and used Star Violet to blend it out a little above the crease. It's heart-stopping for green eyes, smokey without being too much like I feel black can be.
It does not seem to go well with Typographic (which I added a bit of to try to deepen the crease and add a little more drama).

A true matte neutral purple. Not cool, not warm, just purple!
Color payoff is awesome, blending is moderately difficult. Great lasting power. Tap off the excess and pat the color on to avoid fall out.
Works great for a smokey eye, as a less harsh shade than black, an accentuating color, a crease color. Looks good paired with cream/beige/brown shades as well as grays.
The color is dupeable though and not really very unique. Like I said, it's just purple. So I'll enjoy it while it lasts but will experiment with other shades...

Ok so I bought Fig.1 months ago when I was on my matte kick. I wore it once and wasn't happy. It just looked so matte and flat and didn't really stand out on my NW45 skin. Well one day I wanted to do a smokey eye and didn't want to do the black or brown look and decided to give Fig a try again. It was looking so sad in my pallet. I don't know if it's because I have better brushes now or I'm using a better eye primer (Lorac Behind The Scenes) or what but my gosh this is HG for purple smokey eye. This is a rich deep matte purple, I pair it with Texture as my all over lid color,Fig on the lid and Carbon in the crease/corner...instant smokey. I do find that Fig is a color I have to really layer to get the color payoff but it's worth it. The matte2 shadows are some of the best mattes out there.

Buttery smooth, insanely pigmented, very blendable.
Exactly the kind of purple I was looking for: completely matte, deep and not too reddish or blueish.
Great as a crease color or all over the lid for an alternative smokey eye, lovely!

seedy pearl all over and I use FIG. 1 in the crease. and shroom for highlighting. with brown pensil. it looks so natural yet makes the green in my hazel eyes pop.

What a great color for the outer V or crease. Caution, this is not as bright and light as it shows on your screen. It is dark enough for me to use on the outer third, but you won't get a smoky look from it, not unless you are bold enough to use it on your lids, and it's not too dark for that.
However, like the beautiful Handwritten, these are just too hard to blend. I do better with the darker colors from Lorac, they have MORE pigment and yet blend better. Fig is better to blend then handwritten, but gosh, why can't MAC make a decent e/s texture, these are Matte2's. Either too sheer, hard to blend, etc. But so man colors, what a shame. Well, people keep buying them I guess.

Love this matte color! I use it in the crease with Beautiful Iris on the lid.

perfect crease color when i wear purple shadows!

I have green eyes but unfortunately all the "standby" shadows really look muddy on my eyelids, even with a paint applied.
I was so disappointed how muddy Trax looked because instantly it's the - oooh get this one - eye shadow.
However, this one doesn't look muddy. Just bright and purple. I like that there is no shimmer.
Looks good applied full on. If darker, Shadowy lady, is a good one with. And permaplum eyeliner all around. Instant green eye pop.

mac has its moments and this is one of them. this fig.1 is a deep purple that you can use instead of black when you doing a Smokey eye or even a cut crease this is very deep and highly pigment . for me its love in a little black case

Love this matte jewel-toned purple. It's the perfect medium shade of purple, leaning more red than blue. I love the buttery texture of the Matte2 shades, and this is no exception. I find I have to build this color more than some of the other Matte2 colors, but I actually like that about Fig.1. It can be more sheer or built up the full intensity of what you see in the pan. I like it best as a crease or outer V color, and it's just gorgeous with my hazel eyes. It really makes them pop!

Fig. 1 is a very pretty matte deep but bright (fall like) purple.. It's great for a smokey eye with color and still gives that sultry smokey look.

Its a very nice deep plummy purple color. I just don't use it that often.

This is a great purple for the crease. The shadow is smooth and blends well. It also shows up as it looks in the pan. NC55 for reference.

I love this eyeshadow so much! I went into a MAC store one day and I was asked if I could be a model for a makeover, and I obviously did, with pleasure!
My eyes were done with Fig. 1, Trax, Shroom, and underneath that, the paintpot Bare Study.
I ABSOLUTELY love how this was nice and dark, but still a pop of color! It looks great with my brown eyes.

My favorite MAC purple! I am on my second pan and use this shade more than any other purple I have. It really brings out the green in my hazel eyes.
I use gold mode or Jardin Aires pigment on the lid, then Fig 1 in the crease and under the lower lashline, and blend it with Floral Fantasy. I use Vanilla as a highlight and done! Gorgeous look with a fabulous eggplant purple!

I love fig1. I had sketch but I hated the color pay off and it wasn't purple or burgundy enough for me. Fig1, however, has such buttery texture. It's a dark, but not black, true purple. I can wear it with anything. It can blend to a very sheer color or build to a dark color. Today I'm wearing it with retrospeck on the lid, fig1 in the crease, and handwritten in the outer v. I've also used it with pollinator or phloof on the lid. Or, use it as a lid color and blend out the edges with soft brown or kid for a smoky eye. I have to say, pollinator or any peach color looks amazing wtih it. As a side note, however, wet n wild has a slightly lighter dupe in the color icon lust palette so I swapped it out for a more unique MAC shade. This eyeshadow is still great, it's just dupeable.

Great product for everyday use or for a special event. When I first tried it, I was shocked at the pigmentation of this product (I was used to drugstore brands). If you haven't tried this or any other MAC eyeshadows, you might want to be aware of the high pigmentation (especially if you have pale skin, and be sure to blend it. Works great for the smoky eyeshadow look. Would definately recommend.

Beautiful, matte, rich dark purple. Mac's Matte2's are far more trustworthy than Matte's, and Fig.1 is no exception. It's a highly pigmented eyeshadow and the color payoff is amazing. Basically you can deposit it from the pan straight to your eye and it won't change one bit - won't turn chalky, won't budge, won't crease, won't fade. If only the color itself was a little more versatile, it would make for a great liner as well. That's not to say you can't use it to line your eyes as it is, but I find sometimes it can make you look slightly sickly due to some red undertones so if you're very fair, beware - you're gonna want to place it strategically on specific parts of your eyes, almost always accompanied by something dark in the waterline so it doesn't look bruisy or vampy in any way - unless that's the effect you're looking to achieve. Will repurchase.

It's a true rich dark purple and it's super pigmented. Even though it has matte finish it feels buttery and easy to work with. I don't use it daily but it is a must for purple eye looks which is the only color i love doing for my brown eyes besides nudes and greys. Also pairing it with nude e/s looks great too. I don't need to use too much because it's very pigmented, so I won't be repurchasing again since this little pan will last me forever.
