Another favorite is discontinued. I’m heartbroken. I went to stock up on my FAVS during the Cyber Sales, and it’s gone... not even in the Goodbyes. They’ve gradually taken away all my favs. Goodbye MAC.

Gold shadows are a problem for me, they are either too yellow and look sickly on me, or they don’t show up and there’s just a sheer wash of shimmer. I hoped Sumptuous Olive would be a good gold for me because of the olive in it. On my light skin with olive and pink undertones, this shadow looks more like an antique gold with the ever-so-slightest hint of olive color. I have dark brown eyes, solid …Read more

Took off a lippie as I find that it always creases and is slightly hard to blend out. Having said that, it's a great colour to make brown eyes look a little less boring. I apply this in crease with a light gold on the lid. I imagine it would look gorgeous on hazel eyes to bring out the green. I'm torn between this and Greensmoke, which is slightly more pigmented but less sparkly. Both …Read more

This is a gold-olive duo chrome with copper-pink metallic shine. As with all mac veluxed pearls the formula is on point, buttery soft blendable versatile can be used with any shades practically. VELUXED PEARL is my favorite formula because all of them are duo chromes/iridescent... looks like the sheen on actual pearls.
This is my first one purchased with the price decrease and I …

This colour has really grown on me lately. In the pan, the colour looks just as the name describes - olive. However once you start to apply this colour, you will notice it is more complex and is more of a duo chrome shade. It's finish is similar to Satin Taupe on my lids - slightly shimmery but more of a satin finish. The colours look like a mixture between antique gold, taupe, and olive and …Read more

I've owned this shadow for a couple years and the last time I used it I noticed its duo-chrome nature for the first time. Go figure. I have hazel eyes and--I think--a neutral skin tone. This shadow once applied looks very neutral on me. Even though it looks looks green in the pan. I've been using it a lot lately. These MAC shadows blend like a dream. This is a unique color and even if …Read more

This would be in my top 5 eyeshadows of all time! It is the most versatile shadow I've ever used. On my skin, it shows as definite green, with a rose-gold or brown duochrome. I can use this by itself and blend it out without a crease color. I can use it with Cork, Expensive Pink, Swiss Chocolate, Star Violet, or any gold shadow, or just alone. This is a must-have in my book.

Beautiful! It doesn't look very green on me - more like a varnished, antiqued gold when worn on the lid. When worn in the crease, it is a brown that pulls almost copper if blended out. Pigmented, dimensional, blends well. No shimmer, just lovely metallic sheen.

I love it with Ricepaper in the inner third, Sumptuous Olive in the outer two thirds and then Cork in the crease …

I wanted to like this shade so much, but I just can't like the shade on me. It pulls a off gold colour on me with no green. It makes my dark brown eyes really pop! It's soft and silky and super easy to blend out. Recommend it to others, it just doesn't work on me!

I purchased this on a whim, and it looked a little different in the light of the shop than what it did when I got it home and applied it. It's a beautiful colour - partly green, partly gold/bronze-ish. It's definitely one of the nicer greens I've seen for sale.
I like it, and like all MAC shadows it applies beautifully and lasts all day but I was hoping for something just …
