Shroom was one one of my first MAC eyeshadows. I have been using the popular Coastal Scents 88 Warm palette for a while which I think is great. I love shroom, it shows nicely on NC30 skintone, has a nice finish on the lid both in the day and at night. It's long lasting & I just keep reaching for this to make my eyelids pop. I also purchased All That Glitters as it looks so gorgeous in the pan but it doesn't really show up on my skin tone so I just have to cover it with shroom everytime I try it!

Shroom is a pale champagne shade with a hint of yellow. It's one of the "satin" shades so the finish is slightly shimmery. Good for hightlighting and the brow bone! I prefer Phloof over this one, but it's a good basic shade.

Like the girl below me, I'm late to the party for this eyeshadow as well. The sad thing is, I wish I would've never shown up to that party....
I'm somewhat of a MAC eyeshadow newbie, and about a month ago I bought a 4-pan palette from MAC's site, and this was one of the shades I bought to fill it. I was going to go with Dazzlelight in the beginning, but I chose Shroom over it because of its mass popularity. Unfortunately, I have to disagree with the piles of great reviews on here, and say that I absolutely HATE this shadow. Terrible quality for the price, and I thought I did my research well when selecting this, because I can't afford to just collect MAC at my leisure, and just have unloved products sit in the back of my m/u drawer. Shipping is too much of a hassle when returning something, and my nearest MAC store is about an hour away.
Moving on from my poor girl rant lol. This looks like an everyday basic neutral highlight, not too light to use as a wash on the lid, which was what I essentially bought it for. I wanted it to perform well not only as a highlight, but I was expecting it to be pigmented enough to load up onto my brush without difficulty and use it on my lid, because I tend to go light on the lid. I don't know, maybe I was expecting too much from this? The texture of this is so stiff and dry, that it's almost impossible to load up onto a brush. Goes on my lid in patches no matter what brush I use, isn't smooth at all, and when packed on my eyelid, the shimmer makes my eyelid look crepe-y and scaley. Bad, just... bad. And I NEVER skip on primer, so I don't know why this won't show up on my NW15 skin. Maybe I got a dud, but it doesn't matter. I'm going to review that dud as is. I think this shade is EXTREMELY overrated for what it is, has poor color payoff, and bad texture. It also can pull slightly grey even on my cool toned skin.
The one good thing I will say is that I do somewhat like this as a browbone highlight, because it's subtle, not frosty, glittery, or stark at all. It just glows on the brow bone, in a 'Hey, I'm here, but I'm not trying to be obvious' kind of way. Again, maybe something to do with the sheer pigmentation, but I do like it for that function. Maybe I'm just so used to my buttery soft UD shadows, that I feel like MAC is overall inferior, and not up to par with them?

SHROOM! I love this color! I have resisted buying this shade for literally years. To me it looked SO frosty and who needs to resurrect that 80's faux pas?? But it keeps winning beauty awards as fan favorite and the ladies can't be that wrong. So I bought it and I love it. This is an excellent barely there everyday neutral that add's some glow to the eyes. The satin finish is elegantly pearly, not a sign of frost in sight. I've arrived at the party a bit late but so glad I got there eventually. Cheers!

Shroom, how do I love thee? I've repurchased this little gem 3 times, which says a lot for me. I am pretty pale, NW15, and also have to wear conservative makeup for work. I like to use NYX JEP in Mocha very lightly on the lid then apply Shroom on top. I love the color! Shroom is not chalky or glittery. Since I wear it pretty much everyday, it takes about 2 months to hit pan. I buy the refill pans from the MAC website and it is $11.00 this way. Will most def repurchase!

Love this colour! Not too glittery, a wonderful basic! This is my go-to base colour!

Good, neutral base colour that works well with my colouring.
Very forgiving, buildable, work-friendly and it lasts well on me with no creasing. As if all that wasn't enough, it's multipurpose (highlighter, eyeshadow) too !
It's quite expensive though, which is why I've marked it down a little, but on the whole, I like it and will buy it again as in the case of eyeshadow, I have found that you tend to get what you pay for.

I actually really like shroom. I wore it as a highlight with bamboo for my crease, mulch for my lid, and purple and black for my outer corners for my junior prom and it turned out pretty well and I'm no jr. make up guru. I also wore this last night for my lid color with sketch on the outer corner to my military ball and I got a lot of compliments. :) Just remember, before you buy a product, test it out! It's free!

It's meh. Not very pigmented, just another light champagne-y gold color with shimmer. It's a very hard e/s too, so you have to really work at getting product on your brush. I only use this as an inner eye highlight nowadays.

I just started my MAC collection and was under the impression that Shroom was a great 'beginner' colour. After receiving it and trying to work with it, however, I couldn't disagree more. I cannot for the life of me even get this product on my brush, it's such awful texture. I've tried wet, I've tried dry, I've tried my finger - this eyeshadow is terrible. I'm very disappointed that I wasted my money ($15!) on this shadow when I could have gotten something else.
**EDIT** I've changed this from one lippie to three. While my pan of Shroom still doesn't live up to the hype, I have found uses for it in my routine, and the more I work with it the more I seem to be able to pick up product. Still, it's taken a lot of effort for such a highly rated product.
