I don't understand the hype over this color. I actually do not prefer it and I have barely even touched it. It's very hard for me to work with and achieve a clean and polished eye look without looking too glittery or like someone put a blob of blue eyeshadow all over my crease. Maybe I have to experiment with this color a little more but so far I'm not liking the pearly turquoise/green/blue color

Oh my God, whose idea was it to discontinue this sublime thing?

A nice color but goes on more blue than I like. I want more turquoise!! I must experiment with this more. It is a frost, which is my favorite finish in MAC e/s, so I like that aspect of it.
A friend (Rhondany) had said that she doesn't think it lives up to the hype. I am beginning to think it doesn't either!!

Well......I love turquoise/aqua/teal etc. colors and after all the stuff Ive read about it, I have wanted Parrot for quite sometime. When I found out it was re-released I bought three for retail price.
My opinion, well....it is pretty but not what I expected.
Parrot, on me is like a medium blue with a slight green tint in some lights with low shimmer, much more Veluxe Pearl finish than frost in my opinon.
I was thinking/hoping it would be much more sparkly with more green in it, but its still lovely. I just would never pay more than retail for it. I just did a side by side comparison of this and HIP Showy and in color there really is almost no difference. In the pot Showy looks prettier actually but Parrot has an easier texture to work with. Both are fine but I prefer the color of Aqualine to these. They both show up way more blue with barely any green on me and neither are shimmery enough to be exactly what I was looking for.
Now I have my sights on Digital Faerie for a continuing quest for the perfect blue-green color.
I wont purchase this again (because I have three now) but if I had only gotten one and it was permanently retail price, yes I would probably buy another, it is pretty and although there are many similar ones out there, the texture and lasting power of MAC shadows make it worth it.

It's quite funny to hear someone coughed up 60 bucks to buy this, yet I found it for the normal price. It is a great color, and interesting to see how you can adjust the tone of it with different shades, or even just a black eyeliner (I generally do that overtop black eyeliner and a bit above for a simple, yet striking look) It's a great color, definitely a must have in my opinion, and if you're not very artistically inclined as myself; just a line on the lid will do.

I really like this color and I got it for cheap. I am pretty much obsessed with blue/ turq eye colors so I had to buy this. i did a turquoise eye look with parrot and it made the look. I love the shimmer and color. This blends great too! I like to pair it with UD matte shadow in Narcotic.

Hate to bring a neutral review of this e/s. Lots of ppl on EBAY are willing to pay $60 for this color~ since MAC's being so KIND to us make-up junkies by releasing parrot once again. I bought parrot last week, it is def. a very lovely color, but there are some similar e/s in the market (ex. SHISELDO MAJOLICA MAJORCA BL724).
I bought it mostly because of the hype and it's limited edition >.<"

After all the MUA hype, my curiosity got the better of me on this one. I already owned Hip showy duo which contains a dupe of this shade, but I purchased it anyway. I'm actually glad I did. While the colors are absolute spot-on dupes, IMO, the textures are very different. It takes me a little work to get enough product from the showy duo pan, whereas with Parrot the creamy consistency is really fun to work with. The payoff if just immensely better with Parrot. It looks really great with so many shades. I love it as an accent with a bronzey eye, also with other teals, blues or greens its great. My favorite thing to do with it is use it over mac blue peep fluidline as a liner to finish off a nude eye look. A really fun color and I'm always willing to pay a little more money for a great formula.

I decided to listen to all the hype and when the Originals collection came out got the Parrot e/s. Yes it is a georgous teal, goes well with purples, golds, pretty much any color. But I personally dont think its the most amazing teal out there. IMO there are plenty of dupes and I personally wouldn't spend a fortune to get the original.

Parrot is simply gorgeous. It is something that all makeup lovers should have in their collection. It is highly pigmented and super blendable. It is simply a beautiful unique color. It looks awesome as a liner, and blended with most any blues, greens, blacks, etc, etc. I am still experimenting with Parrot. Highly recommended!
Click continued to see an eotd with Parrot on the inner lid, blended with Mac Deep Truth on the outer lid and Carbon blended in the crease.

Adding MAC Parrot Eyeshadow to my makeup arsenal was the cosmetic version of buying a new pair of great shoes or a foxy handbag to spruce up a tired wardrobe. I am convinced that the reason it's so loved is by so many people is because it becomes whatever you want it to be and continually adds new dimension depending on what you pair it with. I'm not exactly what you'd call an eyeshadow whore so when I first received it, I was not sure how to fit it into my small collection, so I just started combining it with es I had. It was when I started layering it with other shadows that it's chameleon personality began to make itself known. I first paired it with MAC Woodwinked, a colour I had loved in the pan but was never so keen on once applied. However, the Parrot\Woodwinked combo was lovely on my brown eyes. Since then, I've worn it with MAC Shroom, Swimming and Tilt as well as my Cargo Madagascar duo and other shades as well in different combinations achieving a variety of effects. Each time I've ended up with a lovely, blended yet multi-tonal result with plenty of depth. And my eyes never scream Parrot. I can wear it in a professional setting or even when I want a semi-neutral look depending on the other colours I "parrot" with. Contrary to it's first impression, this colour is a total team-player. I'm glad I succumbed to my curiousity and took a chance on it - and for those of you who feel you have been sucked in by the hype and now have Parrot lurking in a drawer gathering dust - give it one more shot. Try it with other colours - maybe as a wash over top to start with and then let your imagination take it from there.

Not sure about all the hype, but this really is a gorgeous color. I use it a lot with Carbon and Freshwater. It blends and spreads easily, gives lots of high impact color and really makes my eyes pop!

I have been fancying this after reading so many positive reviews, but was a bit disappointing. Maybe blue doesn't look good on my eyes.

I’ve had a huge lemming for this for a long time. I FINALLY got it in a swap but as soon as I took it out of the box, I thought, “This looks just like UD Shattered – a color that makes me looks kind of corpse-like.” I thought I’d definitely be putting Parrot up for swap. I decided to try it once, though. Am I ever glad I did! It looks very amazing [Applied generously over UDPP]! It is like Shattered, only better […w/o the sickly green pearl]. I then used HIP cream liner in black to do mod eyeliner and painted-on eyelashes. The finished look was gorgeous!!

I LOVE PARROT! I just got this.. It was sold out everywhere so I called a store a few hours away from me and explained my situation and how I was far away and wouldnt be able to make the two hour drive for two weeks and she was nice enough to put it on hold for me (as it was the LAST one!!)
It was so worth the drive!! It is a gorgeous blue teal color with a bit of what i would describe as having gold specks. I wore it once already since buying it two days ago and got a ton of complements!
My friend who doesnt wear makeup because she doesnt know how (not that talented when it comes to makeup application) even wanted it cuz it looked so beautiful.
It is limited but if it wasnt i would buy it over and over again.
It is the pefect blue teal color with excellent creamy color pay off (compared to some other mac eyeshadows which sometimes are harder to apply)

Beautiful slightly turquoise blue, with a brilliant payoff. Looks good with browns, golds and greens (and probably more). Applies smoothly. This will last forever because a little goes a long way. A very useful eye shadow; I often use it as an eyeliner applied with the MAC 208 brush.

I wore this yesterday, paired with Steamy and Black Tied in the outer v of my eyes. While it is a bright turquoise blue color, it didn't look clownish on me, and I am quite pale..NW15, for reference. The key is to use just a tad..do not load your eyeshadow brush with this, as it will look way too bright on your eyelids/crease. I used just a bit and blended it into the crease, and while it was a bit bright, it was very wearable and not over the top..in other words, it didn't look like Mimi's eyeshadow from the Drew Carey show! lol I can see why others love Parrot..I just used it yesterday, and I already love it. I am glad MAC decided to rerelease this color..I definitely understand all the hype! Don't miss out on your chance to purchase this shadow!

got this yesterday - it is very very pretty but very "loud" ... I have brown eyes so I **think** I can pull it off. You could stray over into streetwalker territory quickly with this color. A little goes a long way. It truly is a beautiful color. Very smooth and easy to blend. I tone it down with a brown or a champagne color.

I bought Parrot with the Originals re-release. I had been reading about it and wanted to what the big deal was. On the pot it looks like a bright blue aqua color. Personally, I like bright colors but I can see how most women would be intimidated by this.
I'm NC44.....brown eyes. Surprisingly, I really like Parrot! The texture is great....easy to blend....good color payoff. So far I have only paired it with Charred, and Carbon for a "smokey" eye.
I also applied Parrot over Delft Paint Pot which toned down the brightness. I have eye pics on my profile.

while this color would look intimidating to some, let me assure you it's incredible. the color is a rich turquoise, leaning more towards blue, but it is awesome. I usually use it as a liner, but this color makes any eye color just pop. I highly recommend it for someone who has blue green eyes, it makes them shine, believe me, its worth the money
