It never show up on my skin. No matter what applicator I use to apply the color, (I even used my finger.) even apply it on eye primer or eyeshadow base.

Thank you CheekyBo! Great idea to try as a blush! I too didnt really like it as an eyeshadow... can't wait to see the results

Didn't really like it as an eyeshadow. But one day it popped into my head that I should try this as a blush! It is a gorgeous blush color. Kinda reminds me of Nars Orgasm but way better! It has a gold sheen to the cheeks. Def recommend trying it out as blush! LOVE

I have Both Exp Pink and Paradisco, I like them both, but Exp Pink is def more pigmented. Paradisco is like a true sheer Coral. I got it to create a "tropical Summer look" Used Paradisco on lid (had to wet my brush to make it pop) and used Sumptuous Olive in the crease and a darker more grass green ( i got in an estee kit) to define the otter V. Also felt it needed more definition so used a tad bit of blackout from UD in the OtterV and blended it out with Sumptuous Olive. I use Macs "Brule" to blend around Brow Bone and a Pretty subtle off white high-lite under brow bone. Also used Black gel liner and with my angled brush put a some sumptous olive over it which makes it turn into a pretty color. When I do the look again I wud use a Coral base Primer or NYX Jumbo Pencil, I just used the white one today but wasnt enough to make the Paradisco pop. VERY pretty summer look, But totally dupable with NYX "Tropical" For that I give it 4 Lippies! I will return Paradisco due to the NYX Dupe and it being very similar to EXP Pink which is one of My fave shades from MAC..

If you want something that is more pigmented, I would go with expensive pink. If you want something that is more sheer and that you can build a bit, I would get Paradisco. I wanted something more subtle that I could blend with some neutrals for a more professional setting, so I got Paradisco. I used it in the crease with painterly and rice paper on the lid and highlight. I think I would use it with Shroom, Retrospeck, etc too. Also swept some over my neutral blush to pink it up. Lovelorn or Lustering on the lips for a soft pink, springy-summery look. Saw this used in a youtube tutorial by pixiwoo for Adele's Grammy 2012 look... looked amazing.

I can see why people are giving mixed reveiwes on the pigmentation! i was scared that it wouldnt show on my skin ( Santa fe, and Chanel B30 foundation) but it actually did! i do use paintely though. Love the color

I bought Paradisco because I wanted a pink-coral color suitable for summer. I have Expensive Pink which I love but wanted something more summer-ish. Well, turns out this is not it. The color is a bit too sheer and it is not exactly what I expected once applied on the lid. The color pay-off is not excellent. I much prefer Expensive Pink over this one. I will not re-purchase. I am honestly a bit dissapointed and regret the purchase.

Very nice color when I swatch it with my finger, but terrible color payoff when I use a brush and pat/sweep/use fix+ on my eye. Nothing works to get the color to show up properly. By properly, I mean just to show up and look 'dense' it always looks so sheer and just a teeny bit of color comes out. Other than his very big problem which means I hardly ever use it, it is a great color to match with a pink, red or gold. I love looking at it...too bad I can't use it lol
I wouldn't repurchase this as its too much hassle to try and get it into my eyelid. As normal, good Mac packaging and the price would be way expensive had I bought it at home in Australia. Good thing I bought it in he US.

Love the colour but in all honesty this eyeshadow is pants. Crap colour pay off no matter what I do. So now I use it as blush and it's actually really nice as its everything I wanted Springsheen blush to be (way to shimmery on my almost 30yo NW15 skin) I will continue to use it as blush until its finished but won't repurchase

The color is gorgeous, it's a pinky coral with gold shimmer in it. Reminds me of Nars orgasm in terms of color actually, however the eyeshadow lacks pigmentation.
I find that w/ or w/o a base/primer, no matter how many times I pack the color on, its still sheer. But when I use a primer and base, the color sticks on better. $15.50 for eyeshadow isn't expensive to me but considering the poor quality it is. The pigmentation is on par of most drugstore eyeshadow.
I think this color could work if you are very pale, prefer a light wash of color or use a white sticky base for the color to pop.
It says it's a frost but I consider it fine shimmers.
Also, for darker skin tones this makes a nice peachy highlighter effect so try using it as a highlight!

I got this in a swap in the pro pan for my Unii palette. Really love this color, it works really well on me. It is a very pretty corally pink. Sometimes I wear it over an orange cream shadow that I have and it looks awesome. This is a great choice, especially if you like peachy orange shades.

This colour is really pretty in the pan - unfortunately it makes my eyes look extremely puffy, like I've been crying all day.
I would however recommend this to anyone looking for a lovely soft cheek highlighter! I hate the idea of letting such an expensive shadow go to waste so I now use it over NARS Amour blush to give it a bit more of a summery shimmer - a la NARS Orgasm. So in that way I think shadow this is fantastic :)

Paradisco is a soft peachy corally pink in a frost finish. To me, Paradisco is like Expensive Pink's baby sister. Unfortunately it is not as pigmented as the better frost eyeshadows.
It's so very pretty in the pan but the colour payoff isn't great. I was at a loss at how to use it until I discovered it is beautiful when used over Rubenesque paintpot. It is beautiful for fresh spring/summer looks using clours like All that Glitters, Expensive Pink, Bronze, Sumptuous Olive.
High marks for being available in Pro Pan form . 1 lippie off for not being pigmented enough

Certain MAC eyeshadows make a great colorwash over a neutral eye design and PARADISCO is one of these colors for me. I don't do bold, dramatic eye makeup -so those who do might be disappointed at the color payoff, but this color is a flute - not a grand piano. It is just so gorgeous worked subtly into neutrals and even purples. I use MOTIF and BEAUTIFUL IRIS the same way. I wonder what other colors can be used the like this? Let me know if you have any suggestions...

Utterly beautiful duochrome, a brilliant tangerinewith a soft golden yellow shift; satin finish. I absolutely LOVE this color, I can wear it alone for a simple flatter-ish flash of color that's eye-catching (so to speak) and no-fuss. I have brown eyes and the contrast makes them pop. Can be built up nicely; doesn't fade; won't crease over Urban Decay Primer Potion or Bare Minerals Brightening Eyeshadow Primer. (I haven't tried to wear it on bare lids.) Great color payoff! One of my HG brights. Definite repurchase; haven't seen a quality dupe for this anywhere and honestly, I don't care to look. If this shade is ever discontinued I will stockpile it.

Since I have started using Mac's eyeshadows on my "face", yes, I use Grain as my powder foundation, gives a luminosity that no others do and Naked Lunch as an all over "pick me up" I am now using Paradisco in replace of Nars Orgasm blush. It's about space, I find these little babies just do the job and take up little space and are cheap to boot. So, all of these "eyeshadows" work on the face. I do actually use Mac's Nehru on my eyes as a liner and that's it. It's a secret and old makeup artist taught me...just use shadows. Oh, and I use Omega as a contour. All of these take up inches and most of all they work!

Love this eyeshadow, corally/pinky with golden sparkles very pretty for a neutral/sparkly look.
Looks great on its own and lasts all day, does not crease.
I absolutely recommed this to everyone for a daily look.

I'm a sucker for anything in the coral family. If it were possible, I'd probably have bought a coral coloured car! I wear Paradisco with Satin Taupe (another fav) in the crease, and I must say it looks fabulous! Wish the colour payoff was a little more...but I've learned to live with it.

I wanted a coral eye shadow and that is why I purchased Paradisco. The color is beautiful, don't get me wrong. The problem I have with this product is the pigmentation. There is very little color payoff. If you want a sheer coral eyeshadow, Paradisco might be your best bet. I was expecting a pigmented coral. I really have to pack this stuff on to get any kind of payoff. I also thought this was more shimmery than it is. It looks beautiful layered over another light shimmery eyeshadow such as All That Glitters by MAC or any light color really. I just don't think it's worth the price. I wish drugstore brands would make some coral shadows. Paradisco is a very nice eyeshadow when used correctly, but if you're looking for a strong coral color, this just isn't it. I would not repurchase this.

Color is pretty and goes well with Antiqued, also from MAC. The pigment highly pays off on my skin. I'll definitely get this again
