I LOVE this shadow. I have yellow undertones, so generally yellows can look kind of strange on my skin. Going Bananas is one of the exceptions for me! The color is a muted soft yellow on me and does not wash me out. I would def. buy again!

When I first got this eyeshadow I was very excited to finally have a yellow eyeshadow! However that excitement quickly faded as soon as I realized that the color doesn't translate well to the lid. So then why did I give it four lippies?
Cos it works great for me as a cheekbone highlighter :) I'm NC25 and I removed the powder from the pan and keep it in a jar as a loose powder so that I can dip a brush into it and lightly dust it on my cheeks. What I like about it is if I put too much on, it will appear a little yellow so then I know to blend some more, that way it always looks natural when I step out of my bedroom. It also has no glitter and complements my skin nicely. I'm not sure how it will look on cooler toned girls yet, but once I do, I'll let you guys know.
So if you got this eyeshadow and it sucked for you then try it as a highlighter then Bac-2-MAC your pot!
The reason I wouldn't buy it again is because as a highlight, you use a lot of it and I figure it would be cheaper to pick up a MSF or NARS Albatross

Wow bad reviews for this shadow!! I thought it was very pretty and quite pigmented on my skin NC50 skin. Shimmery yellow with a soft texture, no grittiness. I can see how it can look golden on some folks tho. Definitely not the worst shadow I have. Apparently this was not popular at all as it is still on MAC's website the Goodbyes section.

i'm honestly surprised at these bad reviews!! maybe it was because customers were expecting something brighter? honestly, i loved it and wore it during the end of summer almost daily. i paired with dream makerover it, which really made it a lemon custard sparkly yellow, or i made a sunset eye with sand and sun or sometimes firecracker in the crease.
it is frosty, but it is a light lemon yellow and i really have no complaints.

I thought GB was going to be very pretty, bordering on the gold side but it instead is a very frosty pale yellow. Hmmm. So I started playing with it and found it works best in conjunction with another frosty yellow--one with depth like Bright Sunshine. But overall, it seems that GB is truly best on paler complexions with a neutral or warm undertone--or even a freckled, rosy redhead. The frost finish does not seems to work for tan and darker complexions. On me, GB is best as a complement color. Like I said, GB in inner crease, Bright Sunshine on lid, Goldmine in outer corner with Amber Lights in the crease. Really pretty! At its best, GB complements other colors and intensifies them. BTW a good dupe is Sephora's She Sparkles but it's better than a dupe because it's prettier.

What a disappointing product!!! It was the one e/s in the Dare to Wear collection I was looking forward to. Not only is it poorly pigmented, it also has an identity crisis...this shadow doesn't know whether to be yellow or to be gold. This is one shadow to definitely skip.

so so dissapointed in this,beautiful colour,poor pigmentation,just absolutely shocking. I got this online because my local mac had ran out and i almost got a back up of this because of that,thank god i didnt. Biggest waste of money ever,worst mac product ive ever used and i own ALOT of mac

Wow I can't believe all the bad reviews, this was the one eyshadow I wanted in the Dare to Wear collection and it exceeded my expectations! I do think the color payoff is better with tanner skin and yes the color is nothing like the packaging but I was glad because I didn't think I could pull it off. It shows up great over Bare Study paint pot.

WARNING: THIS LOOKS NOTHING ON THE LIDS AS IT DOES IN THE PAN!!! In the pan it looks like a wearable yellow with a little shimmer. Once it's on the lids, the yellow magically disappears. I'm so disappointed and this will be going back :-(

From the C-shock collection. It's a very beautiful color but doesn't work on me.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Brunette, Straight, Medium Eyes: Brown
The quality of this shadow is really complete garbage. I usually love MAC eyeshadows, but this one is like Wet'n'Wild status. Not worth the money at all.

Not sure if it's just me .. but MAC seems to suck at making a good yellow that actually has decent pigmentation. In the pot, this is a vibrant yellow with shimmer .. upon application, this is a disaster for the most part, which seemed to be the case with the entire C-Shock collection. This has very little color payoff even with a base and requires entirely too much layering for it to show up, which then just makes it look chalky. Not one that I reach for very often at all, and definitely not one that's a "must have" by any stretch.

I got this color @ the Eyes On Manish Palette, Im not a big fan of bright summery shades, but sometimes I tend 2 wear it, Im as NC35 so i dnt have the prblem of this color being sheer on me, as it shows gr8ly on my skin, besides f I need 2 make it pop a lil bit more i just use a yellow base (I usually use the yellow base n the Ben Nye Lumiere Creme Wheel)
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I have this because I got the Manish palette. It is a very soft yellow color with slight frost. This is very hard to show up on my NC30/C3 skin. It might work if you have a bright yellow base to use underneath. Otherwise, I would skip this one and go for chrome yellow or something.

Before I got my hand on Going Bananas, I liked it because of the name. Couple of days later, I got it for free in a gift bag at a MAC workshop. I depotted it to put on my palette.
I tried to apply Going Bananas on my lids, but it was so hard for the color to show . I tried to build it again and again until the yellow color finally showed up on my lids, but it didn't look pretty on me at all... Until now I don't know what other shadows I can use to pair it with to help make them prettier.
I hate to see the pan on my palette...

I am NW15 and this did not show up on me as a bright sunny yellow. It took a lot of applying to even show up. As others have stated it gives me that sickly look. I prefer primary yellow pigment or golden lemon pigment. Those seem to be the only yellows I can pull off.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Other Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
I agree that Going Bananas could make someone look a little sick, but when applied in cetain ways it is actually very beautiful. The trick is not to put it above the crease. I am quite fair with cool undertones but I use Going Bananas over Rubenesque paint pot (which is a golden peach). With Rubenesque peeking over the crease and Bananas stopping just short of the crease, it creates a sunset on your lids that brightens your face and avoids the ill look that can happen with this type of yellow. A little black liner smudged into the lash line also suggested.

I absolute can't understand the bad rating for this product.Love this colour very much and stapeled it. Since I saw the Eve C-Schock Look on the Mac-Website I didn't wear anything else. It comes as a nice golden yellow and I have absolutely no problem with application, maybe it depends on the brush. Very spectacular to let my blue eyes pop, especially in combination with a little suntan. Pair it with amber lights and bitter or al and romping and technakohl eyeliner in graphblack. Golden lemon pigment is similar but maybe a little bit to much shimmer for daytime wear.
