Yes, Paradisco is not the most pigmented eyeshadow that MAC offers. The slight orange toned, coral pink also tends to make my eyes look yellow and sickly however at $6 a pan, it's reasonably priced even if one considers it a dud.But wait, look at that shimmer! Follow me fellow readers and let's be adventurous...Go get your fave highlight brush and slap some on your face!It's a beautiful and subtle highlight on my nc40 face, especially UNDER a similarly toned pink blush. Notice that I emphasized under as it tends to show my texture if worn OVER a blush (as do most of my eyeshadows when worn as highlight). Some thing about it is reminiscent of NARS famous orgasm blush but Paradisco is more flattering on me as 'O' leans more cool.I would not repurchase but I will enjoy using my stash in an unconventional way.

I really didn't like this. Maybe it's just mine, but it wasn't pigmented at all and was so hard to apply. It took me at least 10 coats before I could even see it properly. Had to wear black eyeliner with it because it made the whites of my eyes look so red, but I think that's a pale people problem. I'm a huge MAC eyeshadow fan but nope, not this one. Not worth the money I paid, and would not rebuy.

I have a love/hate relationship with Paradisco. It is an amazing color for my light blue eyes..but it is difficult to apply. Even when using Fix+ (which I use with everything!!) it takes a LOT of effort to apply. I only choose it when I have some extra time to get ready (which is rarely!) It looks great once you have it on. I have tried multiple ways to apply, various brushes, etc and nothing really seems to make it any easier!

Pros: pretty colour, great for blue eyes, good for achieving a subtle spring/summer look as it's sheerCons: bad colour pay-off, can be hard to layerNot the worst eye shadow from Mac, but I've seen better. It doesn't apply well, something that surprised me on a Frost finish. I use it but will not repurchase.

I'm really torn on this eye shadow. On the one hand it makes my blue eyes look phenomenal. However, the colour payoff is pretty frustrating. You really have to take your time to build up the shadow, and, if you get really impatient and just try to load up a brush, you end up with fallout. However, I love the colour added to a warm soft eye look and how it can be mixed into more dramatic looks, like a bronze smokey eye. It's pretty versatile if you have the patience to work with it. Weaker pigmentation does lend itself to being capable of subtler looks. Looks great for day with Mac Orb and Bamboo for a look a little more exciting than the usual browns and neutrals. I say that I wouldn't repurchase, but I could probably be tempted to seeing as coral/peachy colours suit both my skin and eyes.

no matter what I try this colour looks like crap on me. Its way to orange for my skin tone....and just looks weird. Its not bright enough for a daring look....but its too much for everyday...so I dont know how to feel about it. It also doesn't gave great payoff and has soo much fallout! I have used this on darker skins and it can look nice, but there are nicer shadows out there to use.

This color is very pretty. It's a good idea to use a base such as Rubenesque paintpot. Or if you have a NYX jumbo pencil that is coral-ly; then you can use that. I use it with:Rubenesque paintpotExpensive Pinkand sometimes Mac's All that Glitters & or NocturnelleMac's Black-track eyelinerIt will give you a wonderful look!

fun color for summer! vibrant but not over the top, gives your eyes just the right pop of color. i'm asian and not used to using colors like orange because they may make my eyes appear swollen, but i have absolutely no problem with paradisco! as with other Mac shadows with frost finishes, this shadow has a nice texture, is easy to apply and build up to your liking.

It never show up on my skin. No matter what applicator I use to apply the color, (I even used my finger.) even apply it on eye primer or eyeshadow base.
