I just got Rich Ground today, I was a bit disappointed when I tried it for the first time. I think it's because I have a tanned skin the color doesn't really stand out on my lash line :( It is a very pretty bronzy metallic color though.
I had a second attempt trying it as eye shadow, it turned out stunning. However I still want it to work as an eyeliner, I'll try to pair it with the right eye shadow and will edit my review then...
I'm an NC 35.
Helium, the color is very pretty... but I hate the texture! It's too much chunky and when I apply it with wet brush, it doesn't wanna sit smoothly on my lids, it's just cracked! When I try to fix it by blending it with my brush, the color fades... It's too bad since the color is really pretty. I wouldn't go for a repurchase, I would find a similar color with less chunky texture.
Lovely Lily is by far my most favorite MAC pink/baby purple pigment. I love this pigment as eye shadow especially when I apply it wet (it barely shows up when it's applied dry). It shows this bright pinkish color and it blends well and smooth, unlike some other pigments like Helium that cracks when I apply it wet on my lids. I usually pair it with matte black eye shadow (Carbon) on crease.
I love SURREAL!!! People notice my eyes when I wear it, especially when I wear it with Green Stroke paint pot as a base. Pretty minty turquoish aqua color.
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...
