I love this. I find it has a very pearly, almost soft metallic shimmer to it above the pinky/peach base hue. This can be used as a brightening main color or as a highlighter as well. I think this is definitely one of the more versatile pigments as I can use it on eyes, lips and cheeks. The application for this is absolutely perfect.
I had a feeling I'd be disappointed in this product, but I went into my pro store to give it a shot anyhow. I can't resist most LE items, but I was really unimpressed by this and didn't pick it up. I already have Fairylite and this is definitely the more warm/yellow version of that instead of having a pink base. MAC has so many superior sheer highlighter pigments with better application and intensity (Vanilla, White Gold, Pink Opal, etc.) that this just isn't worth it. Pity.
As a big fan of coral-hued MAC lipcolors (I've managed to acquire Dainty Cake, Tartlette, Beaute, Cockatease and Monarch), I was eager to try this lipstick out more than any other in the D'Bohemia collection. This is a very pale apricot with little to no red undertones. A very bit of pale pink, perhaps. More orange, though. I like this, but don't love it. Thankfully I got it as a part of Back2MAC.
I'm glad I got this as a part of Back2MAC. This would appear, in the tube, to be a medium/deep rose with shimmer, but this applies very sheerly. I could see this being a shimmery glaze finish, rather than a pearl. The hue is there, but the pigment isn't great, which is why I've deducted a lippie. I find this very nice and natural, which is rare for a pink lipstick. I could see this working on most complexions except darker ones where this might not show up very well.
This is a gorgeous rich warm tan/gold. Neither light, nor dark, this is a great color to warm up brown eyes. Applies very smooth with great pigment. This isn't too yellow or sheer, which I'm really pleased about. It actually shows up noticeably on my pale eyelids. A keeper!
Wow! I had absolutely zero interest in this before I saw it in person. This shadow is truly unique. I find it nothing like the description (mentioned in the previous review) on the MAC website. This is a highly pigmented silvered white which actually takes on a light seafoam green pearl once applied. There's nothing else like it. The texture/pigment/smoothness of this is more like a veluxe pearl than a frost. I think this is truly great!
I really love this color in the pan because it is a unique medium steel blue with teal/purple shine. Unfortunately, the pigment of this is absolute crap. It is so ridiculously sheer and it is difficult to build up evenly. I try to pair this as a crease color with Brill and it ends up fading away within an hour, which is very disappointing.
I really like this as a versatile pale blue base to use with other cool colors. This really brightens my eyes without being too flashy or overwhelming. I like pairing it with Tilt. Very nice. A bit sheer, but the pigment is good and can be built up pretty easily.
I am a bit of a pigment queen and I have quite the range of neutral/whites (Vanilla, Pink Opal, Fairylite, Frost, etc.). I was excited to add White Gold to my collection, but I nevertheless experienced the same dread I feel every time I swap for a color in this range... What if it is essentially the same as one of the others? I am relieved to say, this one is yet another gem from MAC that is both versatile and still drastically different from their other white pigments. Although the name implies a soft white with gold sheen, I pick up on more of a sparkly white with a soft green/gold effect. This is perfect to pair with all my green and turquoise shadows as a highlighter. Once again, the actually white in it can be sheered out quite a bit so that the color is more about the pearly effect. I love this!
This pigment has a love-hate appeal. The color is ridiculously wonderful in it's simplicity. This is a true bright green that has a bit of a pearl effect, but doesn't have a sheen of any other color to take away from it's trueness. Not too dark and not too light, this is best described as a bright green. I love it since MAC doesn't actually make a true green shadow with good pigmentation (sprout is the closest, but it is way too sheer). That said, although this is wonderful, it is a little lacking in smoothness and blendability compared to the more shimmery pigments. I have only had a chance to play around with a sample of this, but I like what I see!
This is a great shocking blue color that has awesome texture and pigment. This is both it's benefit and detriment, however, since because of it's uniqueness, it is hard to pair with some shades and is not too versatile. But when this works, it REALLY works. I love it!
Hm. I'm torn over this one. I find this color truly unique with great pigmentation and texture. It is a sour lime greeny yellow shadow. And while, yes, this is quite bright, but it is quite a bit darker than I thought it would be. I was hoping I could use this in a shocking and eye-brightening way, but this ends up looking a little darker and duller than I expected. I'm still going to play with this so see how I can make it work, but I'm disappointed so far.
I have been on a crazy corals craze with MAC's recent rash of frosty bright lipsticks (Dainty Cake, Monarch and Cockatease), so when I went into the Pro store today to buy a backup of Monarch I was crushed to find out that my whole city was sold out. All was not lost, though! The MA recommended this Lipglass as an alternative. I was lucky that they had any in stock considering this is an LE item, but I was struggling with the dry textures of the lipsticks, so this solved that problem perfectly. I find this quite sheer and subtle, but bright as well. It is a refreshing change and is not garish at all. Love it!
Since ditching my neutral shadows for more fun, bright spring-season colors with the Madame B. collection, I've been on the lookout for bright colors that would compliment those I've already got. Although Sushi Flower is not as frosty as those I normally turn to immediately, I find it very bright with great pigment. It is gorgeous when paired with Pink Papillion.
This is exactly what I wanted Sprout eyeshadow to be (it was terrible because, although gorgeous in the pan, it was nearly impossible to get enough pigment on the brush). This is a true golden green that is deeper than Golden Olive pigment and brighter than Rosemary & Thyme eye kohl. A great base for green, yellow and neutral shadows. This isn't that easy to apply, although it does set once it is. I'm always so worried that the product is delicate and is going to break in it's casing, though. But a vital additional to my collection nonetheless.
