This is my least favorite Mac e/s. I liked it as an accent color with sumptuous olive at first but after coming home with it and experimenting with it over time, I find it entirely too frosty, it does not apply evenly and I end up removing it all the time. It is not elegant alone or with any other shadows I own on my nc40 skin. It is pretty to look at in it's pan, but just looks completely off on me.

I have a love/hate relationship with MAC's lustre eyeshadows since what you see in the pan is not always what you get. The application is almost always uneven and extremely sheer. Greensmoke is one of MAC's better lustre shadows.
Greensmoke is an ashy olive green with equally ashy golden undertones and sheen. At first application it is a tad bit sheer, however, I find it's very build-able. I always use it with Nyx's White Eyeshadow Base to get the maximum color payoff. I like to pair it up with a black/grey shadow in the crease for a nice smokey look. Also, I haven't noticed any fallout either so that's definitely a plus.

I have debated back and forth on whether I would keep this shadow. As I am becoming pickier with what I consider my stash, I only want to keep colors that are flattering or make my eyes POP, as opposed to just to have to complete my color collection.
Greensmoke is a lovely color, but the shimmer is only visible in the pan. When applied to the lid, it becomes a muddy dark green. My blue eyes lose their luster. Its not a bad shadow, but just not for me.

The color is great but I find it patchy when applied with shader brush and difficult to blend even with MAC 217. It creases after 2-3 hours even with primer ( I use Too Faced Shadowsurance). The worst MAC eyeshadow that I own, in terms of staying power.

Greensmoke is a mid-toned khaki green gray eyeshadow with shimmers. It's formula is Lustre. It has a buildable formula and shimmers do not make it an evening eyeshadow. It can be worn for office as well. You can apply with a light hand for a subtle wear or load it to increase shimmery effect. Quite classy and chic when paired with simple black eyeliner. A must have for green eyed gals and i think it works for browns and hazels too.

Greensmoke is an amazing eye shadow by MAC, itís a dirty, khaki green but it leans more gold when paired with golden shades and more green when paired with green shades like Humid. Very versatile and excellent pigmentation for a lustre! I find that this applies even more vividly to the lid when I wet my brush with either water or Fix+.

This is such a beautiful colour, it has totally changed my mind about wearing green! I have blue eyes and although it doesn't make then pop like a brown would, it still looks stunning. I put Paint Pot Quite Natural all over the lid, blending out in the crease. Then I use Tarnish eye pencil and roughly line on the top lash, and a little underneath. I blend these using a 239 brush and after, using a 214 brush, I pack the Greensmoke over the liner. After, I use a couple of coats of dark brown mascara. This gives a beautiful soft look, which is so easy to do too. I find this is good for daytime as this look is not too strong, but quite easily be built up for evenings too.

I love this a lot. I have green eyes and this looks great. I use it lightly sometimes as just a smokey, grey, green shadow , building it a little darker on the out eye. For evening is it great for a smokey eye, used with Macs tarnish kohl pencil. The green in it is lovely and it's a great shadow, another well done to Mac!

Beautiful for brown eyed girls! subtle and sexy olive green smokey eye. Brings out the gold in brown eyes. I wear it as a wash w either black e/l (Mac smolder or UD Zero) or a dark green/gold e/l (Smashbox Golden Ivy). Gorgeous! Pat it on to get the true color.

I love love love this shadow. I can't say enough good things about it. I used to hate lustre finish shadows and was afraid to purchase for the longest time, but i decided to give this color a shot because i was so attracted to it everytime i visited the counter. i love how glittery it is and i love that i don't get any fallout even more! it's an alluring, sexy color and everybody should have it. i haven't found anything quite like this. its stunning

Greensmoke is a colour I think would look especially stunning on green, and hazel eyes! On my NW15 skin, it's flattering enough but like other reviewers I find it hard to apply being the finish that it is. I would not repurchase since I don't find myself reaching for it due to the slightly annoying application. If the application was smoother it would be great for either natural or smoky looks!

I got this from a swap and I'm glad I did. Yesterday I wore it on the lid, Print on the outer V and Vanilla to highlight, even my husband -who has no interest in my makeup- said how he liked it. It brings out the greens in my hazel eyes. The only downside is its falling glitters while applying.They are not that much though. I tolerate gladly. I'm NW20 by the way.
I create smokey green eyes with ease by using it. Its color is on the cooler side I guess, that's why I can pair it with Print. It is very wearable during the day. Another good point is I can put layers of it if I want more dramatic look.

Bought this product as I heard it was being discontinued, and I liked the colour, so thought why not!
And I am so glad I did get it! It is such a stunning smokey green colour... guess it lives up to its name!
And paired with carbon it gives such a stunning, but simple smokey eye!
I give this product 4 stars, simply for the fact it is a lustre, so it takes a lot more building that the other finishes, I dont mind building, but it just takes a heck of a lot with lustre eyeshadows, and also for the fact that it has a lot of fall down!

I love this color so much! I've been lemming it for a while, but I could never get myself to buy it, thinking that I wouldn't use it often enough to justify the money. Boy, was I wrong! I wear it constantly. It really makes my brown eyes POP. This is such a versatile color, I use it all over the lid for a quick pick-me-up, or on the outer v and crease. Its so beautiful, and I'll never be without it!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Brown, Curly, Medium Eyes: Brown
I am wearing this today with Moss Scape PP on lower half of lid, Goldmine on inner lid/ tear duct, Greensmoke on lid blended up into crease, Carbon on outer V & Blacktrack winged out on upper lid. Very nice smokey Khaki eyed look with some gold accent. I wouldn't call this color "green." Very pretty color with some fallout. I took a lippie off because this is the only way I wear it and don't reach for it too often therefore I wouldn't repurchase. Still a look/ color that I like & a nice color to have in my collection. NW25 for referance.

One of my favorite eye shadows of ALL time...this looks smokin' on hazel or brown eyes with black eye liner. I love that it is a deep, khaki, almost mossy teal shade. It is hard to describe. The bits of shimmer in it make the eye shadow. This eye shadow lasts all night long on me especially if you apply an eye primer (like Urban Decay). I wish I could find other colors from MAC that are like Greensmoke because it is amazing!

How is it that I have never reviewed this godsend of an eyeshadow?!?!?
This. Shade. Is. Fabulous.
Greensmoke is very aptly named... its green, but it's smokey. It goes on Medium to Dark and works very well either dry or wet. (I tend to like to use it wet a lot) It's super... super... VERSATILE. I've used this baby as a liner, as a crease, as a full lid wash... it does it all and does it all exquisitely.
I like colors, I like having a little 'oompfh' to my eyes. As i'm getting a lil older though, i'm trying my hardest to stay my hand from massive 'clown colors' - you know what i mean - the bright bright color combos two ticks from 'garish land'. THIS SHADE IS PERFECT in the sense that you do 'get' that color, you do get that oompfh, but... sinces it's 'smoked down' you DON'T end up looking like The Incredible Hulk's trashy little sister.
Consistency is fine, theres a nice shimmer to it - dare I say a slight metallic edge... but the color makes all that 'respectable'. This baby can be worn both in the office AND in the club. It also works well with a variety of other shades - i've said versatile right? :)
Two resounding thumbs up and a hip-hip-huzzah for greensmoke!!!

This is such an amazing e/s! I love the way it blends in the crease with lighter lid colors, and how it looks as a liner under the eye! I also love it as a lid color with patina in the crease! It looks great with my blue green eyes, and with my stepsister and stepmother's true blue eyes! Even though it is a luster finish i dont notice any fallout or pigmentation issues! Blends like a dream!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Oily, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I think this is ok. I'm very fair with brown hair and brown eyes and I just think the lack of payout and fallout give me a negative outlook on it.

Love love LOVE this colour! I'm an extremely fair Asian girl (NW20) but this colour matches my skin and brown eyes perfectly. For daytime smoky eyes, I like to layer greensmoke over a bright gold eyeshadow to get more of a pop and bring out the shimmer and olive tones in greensmoke. Night time, add in some more black or dark silver like mac's knight divine and you're set! This colour is really versatile and so flattering. I wish it was a bit more pigmented but right now, it's very easy to control exactly to what degree of intensity I want my look to be.
