I saw this shade in a tutorial and after falling in love with the color, I ran out and bought it. You read it correctly, fell in love with the color only, and only the color. It's a dark teal blue matte shade. The color is lovely with my brown eyes. I pair it with a warm brown shade in the crease for a simple smokey eye. The color is gorgeous but the texture is something else to be desired.It applies patchy so that means you have to pack this on until you get an even coat of color. And it's a pain to blend. While this color is gorgeous I just hate the way it applies. I paid $11 for this in refill pan form before MAC dropped the price which makes it even worse. A cheaper drugstore dupe can probably beat this in application. Even though I love the color I won't be repurchasing again. Wish they had improved the texture, maybe change it to a satin or matte2. Gonna be on a look out for a more affordable and most importantly better dupe.

It is a matte dusty dark green. Easy to apply, good blendabily.

worst shadow ever, chalky, sheer, unblendable. It's a shame to sell this for 13,50 euros/refill In general Mac is becoming less and less attractive to me as we have now great alternatives (better quality for a bettter price) as MUG or Kiko.

Plumage is sheer, chalky, has no colour whatsoever and shows up a dirty grey on the skin. I will throw this in the bin and use Urban decay Loaded instead.

Why create a beautiful shade with lackluster pigmentation and blendability? Granted that with minimal pigmentation, it takes a lengthier time to build it up and looks "blended" in this manner, but unless I have a lot of time to spend prepping for eyeshadow, I usually overlook this colour. I do love the matte, darkened teal. It's very flattering with a variety of different colours, mostly my favourite to match it with is a greened olive/silver-olive (MAC Greensmoke, or MAC Sumptuous Olives. Various dupes in lines such as L'oreal Infalliable e/s etc.) with a warm brown in the crease (MAC Soft Brown/Saddle.) I think it makes for a subtle colourful eye that I am able to pull off without looking like a canvas that was paint-by-numbers. So I do like this shade, but the hard texture leaves much to be desired. I wish the texture had been like a matte2 because Prussian was a beautiful navy.

I'm very picky about buying MAC shadows because Makeup Geek and a few others have very close dupes However, this one is one of the exceptions. This cameleon color has Teal/blue/grey tones is a matte and beautiful to punch up that smokey eye. A little goes a long way especially if you are on the fair side. I've used this in my corner V, crease, lower lash line and on lid especially when I'm going for the more dramatic. I've blended this out with a little soft brown and Schrum and it takes on such a beautiful hue. I've also used it with Pigment Blue brown. It's dramatic but if you are looking to really make your eyes the center of it all this is a look to try! .

Plumage is a navy blue with a slight greenish/teal undertone to it. It is matte but applies well for a smokey eye. So far I wear plumage smudged above my upper lashes to almost half way up on my eye lid. Then I apply mac texture in the crease and then top texture with mac tempting eye shadow, orb goes on the center of the lid to brighten the look a bit. I use stilla kitten then brule as a highlight. I love this smokey combination so this is what I use plumage for the most. Maybe one day I will venture out and try it in the crease or with other colors.

Plumage is my go to V colour when I use Club eyeshadow. I use club all over, then darken up the outer corners and V with Plumage. It's a dark teal, matte colour that blends beautifully, not at all chalky. Love it paired with Club shadow and Tealo pencil liner on the waterline. X

I absolutely love this eyeshadow. Plumage is described as a dusky peacock color and while it isn't as bright as I would imagine it to be, just judging by the description, it is still very pigmented and pretty. I normally use mine to cut my crease and in the outer v. It works wonderfully and I have used it with a brighter purple, a brighter blue, and a brighter green (although not at the same time, because that would just be kind of bad) and all those colors have looked really good with it. It is very pigmented, so it is somewhat unforgiving, but if you build the color instead of just smearing it on, it seems to work better. I do wish it had a little bit more brightness to it, but I can always add a little bit of Knight by Spectrum Cosmetics. I have worn this color with every color outfit I own and somehow it seems to match, no matter what. With orange, it looks more muted brown. With brown, it looks more muted green. With blue, it looks more teal...so on and so forth. I have read where some people have found this to be chalky but I can't say that's the case for me. I use two primers, though. The first primer is my normal makeup primer (Monistat Gel) and the second primer I use is either my UD or Spectrum. I love this color and I find that it has become one of my go-to shadows.

This is such a beautiful colour. Although it looks so dark (almost black) in the pan, but it applies as a nice deep teal on the eye. I was actually surprised, how well blendable it was, as I have read other reviews stating it was a pain to blend. How I make it work is by literally just dipping a small brush into it and then slowly building it into the outer V.It looks nice in the crease and outer V on top of a neutral. But I have also been using it in the crease when I use Steamy (a metallic blue-green) to add depth. I yet have to try to pair it with blue (with Deep Truth).
