This was too cool and blue toned on me. I will find a way to use this in a look somehow, but I won't repurchase. Highly recommend trying before buying.

I can see why this has some negative reviews as it has very little pigmentation. But if you have neutral undertones with warm tendencies and are looking for some soft cool lilac for daytime use, this is the one.

This is exactly what i was hoping to find. I'm not a fan of bright neon colors on the eye, they look very unnatural to me. Most of my eyeshadow stash consists of taupes …

Beautiful Iris is gorgeous. It looks a little intimidating, as it is a very bright purple. I love using it with MAC Sketch and Satellite Dreams for a really pretty purple evening look. I find Beautiful Iris to be blendable, but not as pigmented as I thought it would be (which may be a good thing!).

I like this colour a lot, but I don't think I would buy it again as I find that it …

Definitely not an eyeshadow I would recommend for ladies with warm undertones... This is just too cool for my NC25 skin. I am also more of a neutral girl and this just comes off too vibrant. It is also a bit too sheer to work well as a lid color. I did a look using Beautiful Iris, Satellite Dreams, and Nocturnelle on my blog if you'd like to check it out:

Beautiful Iris is indeed a beautiful vivid lavender with blue/ pink duochrome. A bit too vivid for my liking to wear all over the lid but I adore layering it over taupe/ plummy eye shadows to add a lilac hue sometimes, mostly with satin taupe. Not overly pigmented or buttery smooth but instantly lightens up green eyes!

I have been wearing this eyeshadow quite a bit over the last month and it's become my go to spring pastel eyeshadow. I really like this soft lavender shadow as the reflects of blue and pink add dimension and luminosity. It's truly a gorgeous and versatile shadow as it pairs well with purples, neutrals, taupes, and grays. Some of my favourite Spring looks so far:

This shade is really different, it has a lilac base but flashes pink and pale blue in different lighting. Theres no glitter just a gorgeous pearly smooth finish. It's nice alone or blended with grays and cool browns.It also looks really pretty as a cheekbone highlight, the pink/lilac glow is so pretty.

I gave three lippies because it really is a beautiful color, but to get that color it takes a lot of work! As others have said, it requires really kind of piling it on. Once you get there? Gorgeous! But it takes primer and a really good brush, applying three to four layers to get the same effect as one swipe of UD's Asphyxia. Since they are almost exact dupes for each other--but Asphyxia is …Read more

This has to be the prettiest purple eyeshadow that i have ever worn. Beautiful Iris, when you apply to the lid (i use about 3 coats so you can really see this) is purple but has a pearly/duochrome blueish effect to it-really pretty! I am new to Mac's eyeshadows, so I was very pleasantly surprised at the beauty in this eyeshadow. I use UDPP before I wear any eyeshadows, and with it, beautiful …Read more

I don't know if I have the same one because mine doesn't look like those pictured... But I love this color. I think it's a bright fun color that's pretty unique. The product is very smooth and easy to blend. If you don't like bright (tropical or Nikki Minaj) type looks, you may not like this.
