Definitely not an eyeshadow I would recommend for ladies with warm undertones... This is just too cool for my NC25 skin. I am also more of a neutral girl and this just comes off too vibrant. It is also a bit too sheer to work well as a lid color. I did a look using Beautiful Iris, Satellite Dreams, and Nocturnelle on my blog if you'd like to check it out:

Beautiful Iris is indeed a beautiful vivid lavender with blue/ pink duochrome. A bit too vivid for my liking to wear all over the lid but I adore layering it over taupe/ plummy eye shadows to add a lilac hue sometimes, mostly with satin taupe. Not overly pigmented or buttery smooth but instantly lightens up green eyes!

I have been wearing this eyeshadow quite a bit over the last month and it's become my go to spring pastel eyeshadow. I really like this soft lavender shadow as the reflects of blue and pink add dimension and luminosity. It's truly a gorgeous and versatile shadow as it pairs well with purples, neutrals, taupes, and grays. Some of my favourite Spring looks so far:
- Beautiful Iris on the lid, Omega in the crease, and Gesso on the the brow bone
- Beautiful Iris on the lid, Soft Brown in the crease, and Blanc Type on the brow bone
- Beautiful Iris on the lid, Memorabilia in the crease, and Shroom on the brow bone
- Crystal Avalanche or Mylar on the lid, Beautiful Iris in the crease, and Brule on the brow bone
- Beautiful Iris on the lid, Copperplate in the crease, and Blanc Type on the brow bone

This shade is really different, it has a lilac base but flashes pink and pale blue in different lighting. Theres no glitter just a gorgeous pearly smooth finish. It's nice alone or blended with grays and cool browns.It also looks really pretty as a cheekbone highlight, the pink/lilac glow is so pretty.

I gave three lippies because it really is a beautiful color, but to get that color it takes a lot of work! As others have said, it requires really kind of piling it on. Once you get there? Gorgeous! But it takes primer and a really good brush, applying three to four layers to get the same effect as one swipe of UD's Asphyxia. Since they are almost exact dupes for each other--but Asphyxia is WAY more pigmented and so much easier to work with--I won't be repurchasing this. I'll use it until it's gone, but it's really worth the few extra dollars to get UD's Asphyxia.

This has to be the prettiest purple eyeshadow that i have ever worn. Beautiful Iris, when you apply to the lid (i use about 3 coats so you can really see this) is purple but has a pearly/duochrome blueish effect to it-really pretty! I am new to Mac's eyeshadows, so I was very pleasantly surprised at the beauty in this eyeshadow. I use UDPP before I wear any eyeshadows, and with it, beautiful iris stays put all day. Definately a great color to wear on your lids for spring. You can use this color as part of a bright eye look, or, if you want a more neutral look, but a pop of color, you can swipe this on the lid and add a medium brown shade in the crease. There are numerous ways that you can wear this purple.
I have lots of eyeshadows and pretty much use them all (rotating), so it will probably take me quite a while to hit pan with this, but if I do, I will definatley repurchase. This a staple in my makeup collection.

I don't know if I have the same one because mine doesn't look like those pictured... But I love this color. I think it's a bright fun color that's pretty unique. The product is very smooth and easy to blend. If you don't like bright (tropical or Nikki Minaj) type looks, you may not like this.

Beautiful Iris is so bright and pigmented. I use Fig1 in the crease and Seedy Pearl under the brow, as suggested by a MAC Makeup Artist. Such a beautiful combination.

this is my go-to lid shade every time i do a purple eye look, which is often. i wish it was a little more pigmented, but i love the shade. pairs beautifully with Fig 1 in the crease.

Beautiful Iris is a very pigmented pale lavender shade. With my NC 45 skin tone, I have to apply this with a very light hand. It actually applies like a matte or a satin finish, so I am amazed to discover that this eyeshadow is a veluxe pearl. It's a little too pale of a purple, and much too vivid for my image.
