Sushi Flower is a bright vibrant pink shade. I think the moderate pigmentation is a plus with this one, cuz just imagine how it'd look running at full speed. Wouldn't be any close to being wearable.
I've tried it as a crease color and it made me look so sick! Haven't dared try it as a lid color.
So here's the deal to this shade...you layer it and mix it with other shades - don't use it alone if it doesn't work for you. Shades it looks great mixed with are browns and purples.
So you can apply a purple lid color, Sushi Flower in the crease followed by the same purple layered on top of it. It will just give you a beautiful transition.
A fellow MUAer suggested layering it with Twinks. I tried it and it looks fantastic! Am sorry am not sure of the user name who made the suggestion.
Another way I rocked this color, is by applying it on top of a light layer of lip balm. Looks gorgeous as a lip color! Am not sure if it's safe to apply it on the lips though so I don't do this a lot just in case.
I'll be giving it a go as a blusher and update you...
It is definitely a challenging color to work with and can be substituted for a more wearable pink, so I don't think I'll be buying this again.

I was automatically drawn to this colour because it is a beautiful and bright pink in the pan so I bought it. When I swatched it I liked the colour but once I actually went to apply it it was only okay. It was kind of patchy and I had to pack a lot on to get a decent colour. I tried it with just primer and with an eyeshadow base and I didn't know how to make it look nicer. Maybe someday I'll find a good way to use it but for now it's just going to sit in my kit and collect dust. I love MAC but this is a disappointment.

I actually really like this color. I bought it after Allthatglitters21 recommended it. Lol, I sound like such a die hard fan, but it was a pretty color: it's just a very soft, pinky coral color with subtle shimmer in it. Now, I have to agree with some people here. The pigmentation is not that great, you really have to pack it on with a flat, dense brush. I find that MAC 239 is the only brush that can make the best out of this eyeshadow. And I don't think this is an all over eye color for us brown eyed babes out there, but I really like to combine this with blues and browns and even orange colors to give me an dramatic, vampy effect. But for those with blue or green eyes - this is definitely a perfect all over lid color. Combine this with passionate and your blue eyes will almost pop out of your head, I can promise you that.
I won't repurchase though, simply because I don't use it enough to need a new one. But that does not mean I find it useless, this is a very good buy for those who want to fill up a pink based eyeshadow palette.

no, just no. this has been sitting in my makeup bag being neglected with good reason. there's little pigmentation, and honestly pink doesn't do anything good for my brown eye. the only reason i have this is because i overdid the pink at prom 5 years ago and looked like a brunette Barbie... :(

Went out of my way to get this in Duty Free as my local MAC didn't carry it. Was very very disappointed. Not very pigmented, nor was it very blendable. Haven't even used it properly in a look yet, and I've had it about a year. No repurchase.

I love Sushi Flower! For me, and my coloring, I can wear it from morning to evening! On top of the pearl cream base, the color lasts forever! It blends well with a lot of warmer colors and glittery colors. I can't do without Sushi Flower!
I am a fan!

Hate it as an eyeshadow. I use it as a blush.

Sushi Flower is a nice bright warm pink, that is great for summer, however I find the texture to be lacking for a satin finish, it is quite sheer and hard to pick up pigment in comparison to my Arena eyeshadow which is also a satin.The color is pretty paired with dark browns and beige colors, and it is still usable which is why I gave it 3 lippies, just saying that there is room for improvement.

i don't know why i have an odd obsession with this product, but i've used it almost everyday since i've had it!
i saw it on a youtube gurus tutorial and i knew that i had to have it. normally i only go for neutral shades but since mac is known for their pigmentation in colors i thought i'd try a gamble and i am so glad i did.
it does come off slightly chalky, but i most often blend this over expensive pink so blending is never an issue. a for sure staple in my kit!

Just purchased this online after hearing raves about it on youtube, but after seeing the comments here, I'm kind of scared! Good think I just bought the pro pan refill which isn't too much money. Maybe I'll like it....I love Swish..

I don't know what to rate this after seeing the other reviews, now-- I was going to rate it 1 star and talk about it's incredible lack of pigmentation, just how long it takes to build up & how much product you have to use to build it up. But, seeing you other reviewers has put this shadow in a different light for me. I am a Urban Decay-er an am as loyal to them as anyone else, but MAC's shadows lie so much lighter than theirs. MAC is also, seemingly, purposefully crafting their shadows TO be a less pigmented and more workable powder for daytime wear as well as evening wear.
So maybe it's just my experience with other, in my opinion, better breed of shadows that is giving me a hard time.
Nonetheless, I do think it's scantily pigmentation should be noted.

Like someone else said here, this looks fantastic under a brown eyeshadow. When I wear Sushi Flower and then Twinks on top, I get the most amazing shade of purple. Really pretty!
(Sadly that is the only use I have for this shade, since I don't usually wear pinks).

This pink just didn't work well ... didn't blend easily.. looked patchy and didn't do anything for my green eyes unfortunately :( . Put this up for swap.

I actually really like this eyeshadow. I never thought I would wear a pink eyeshadow....ever! But I recently started getting into reddish brown shades because I discovered it really warmed up my eyes. Before, I would only choose shades that were plain brown with no red tones and then I would highlight with a lighter shade. Yeah, I know, pretty boring right? But I wanted to point that out to show how wearable this shade can be. The trick is you have to blend with a nice brown color like MAC's mystery or I'm sure this would look gorgeous with a charcoal or black color too. The thing is, once blended with brown, the pink turns more into a purple tone. True you can just simply wear purple but I love the layered effect this gives, you can't just wear purple to get the same effect. I sometimes put this all over lid and tone it down with brown shadow on the lids and work more of the brown into the crease, concentrating on the outer V. Then you blend the pink into the upper crease. So it looks like some parts of purple, brown and you see most of the pink above the crease area. Seriously, never would've guessed it but pink highlighting above the crease really opens up the eye and just makes it glow. I have medium/olive skin so that might be why it works.
Btw, I got the idea to try out this look when I saw Kristen Stewart w/her red hair. She had on a dark shadow all over lid and right above it she had a lighter shade on, looked like a soft pink or light brown orange. I noticed it made her eyes just glow and I wanted to try it.
Only thing I'm not crazy about with this shade is that it has pink shimmer. It's not noticeable indoors but outdoors you can see it if you overdo it. For the same pink look but without the shimmer, I wear Free to be. It's the same pink-coral shade as Sushi Flower but softer and not as bright. I wear Free to be more for day and Sushi Flower at night.

This has got to be the worst pink eyeshadow in the world. The colour payoff is terrible! Will never buy it again...wouldnt even care if i accidently binned it! DONT WASTER YOUR MONEY ON IT!!!

Have it...wish I didn't. Hardly never ever use it. It's a very hard color to use and I wish I had a different color instead but oh well. Maybe I'll try to play with it and see I can do something with it.

This is a very bright pink-coral color. It is hard to wear, but if you get it just right, it is wearable. I like to wear it in my crease for a daytime look or as an all-over wash with black liner for a more dramatic look.

This is one nasty eyeshadow. It's a beautiful color in the pan (it's more of a reddish pink than what is shown in that photo) but unfortunately that is the only good thing about it. It's chalky, doesn't blend easily, and isn't as pigmented as other better MAC eyeshadows. I used it on my friend to make sure it wasn't just unflattering on my skin tone but it made both of our eyes look bloodshot. The only reason I gave it a rating of 2 is because I was able to salvage it use it as a blush. It does make a nice blush color. Don't waste your money!

Sushi Flower is a beautiful color in the pan, but it's rather difficult to work with. Very chalky texture and a dull payoff. I understand it's a matte, but I find it much more difficult to work with than most of the other MAC matte shadows. I have found that using a shadow primer is key along with building it up. Usually I use the shadow just for certain parts of my eyes to create various looks. Perhaps I will try using Fix+ to get more vibrant results from this shadow or try it over NYX's white jumbo eye pencil. Def. not the best MAC shadow out there though...or pink shadow in general for that matter.

Ive had 'sushi flower' for a while now & never really got into it probably because i find it needs alot of work to get the real colour but also because i find its quite a unique pink. i hadn't thought of trying it with fix+ spray to intensify but will try that tomorrow. Its a great colour but from what i have used, quite a specific colour. looks great with 'concrete'.
