If you are looking for the perfect Bronze shade, this is it! True to its name, this is a medium shimmery Bronze. Very warmed toned and with a pretty frost finish. Super pigmented, buildable and stays put all day. Great for a crease color and sexy smokey look. I am giving it a 5 although I find Bronze to be a little too orange, even on my warm toned skin. People compliment me on my eyes when I wear it so it must be nice!
I have tried to use this eye shadow so many times and I just end up looking like I have been scratching my eyes for days because of allergies or I have pink eye. Maybe this would look better if I had more of a tan. It shows up very coppery on my skin although I don't think it looks this coppery in the pan at all. This eye shadow cannot be applied and then have my naked skin next to it at all or else the skin just looks inflamed. It is more wearable if I blend it with many different colors on the lid but that takes way too much work and changes the cranberry color completely. That being said I would not buy this eye shadow again because it just doesn't look good on my skin. I still gave it a 3 because it has great pigmentation and quality and also looks really beautiful in the pan, swatched, or on other people. It just isn't for me.
Not So Great
THIS IS A REVIEW OF HONESTY! (I forgot to link the swatch)
I got this as a gift and am glad that I didn't pay for it. It seems like a fun color but it just doesn't work. As other reviewers have noted, it doesn't seem to have a base color. Rather, it goes on as a layer of large glittery chunks with no color underneath. The glittery chunks are a warm bronze color that simply makes me look orange. Not a fan.
This is a staple bone colored eyeshadow with yellow undertones that goes well as a base or brow highlighter with everything. When I can't decide what eyeshadow to wear, for an easy and simple look.
Not as pigmented as expected
Utterly beautiful duochrome, a brilliant tangerine with a soft golden yellow shift; satin finish. I absolutely LOVE this color, I can wear it alone for a simple flatter-ish flash of color that's eye-catching (so to speak) and no-fuss. The only thing is that it is not as pigmented as other shades that I have.
Great Bronzey Color
I LOVE this eyeshadow...i'm just gonna put that out there. It's the perfect brown that not too cool/warm for my NC35 skin. It has a bit of shimmer which is nice and blends quite easily. It has the perfect mix of bronze and red to bring out my blue eyes. It is also so versatile as I can put it in the crease for a subtle look or on the lid for a smokey brown look. I highly recommend this to anyone!!
My favorite MAC Eyeshadow
First let me start off by saying, I have a thing for taupes. Really, truly, I just love them. But now onto this eyeshadow. This is such a beautiful color that no description would do it justice. It compliments every skin tone and eye color. I use it on days when I do not feel like wearing much makeup or do not have a lot of time for complicated makeup. You can play with it and create a more dramatic look with this color. The staying power is great.
Very Natural With A Hint of Shimmer
This is a great champagne/nude pink color that really lives up to it's name. It looks very natural with a hint of shimmer and works well as an all over lid color or used for the inner corner. I personally can't use it as a highlighter through because it shows up too pink on my skin for that and therefore looks strange under my brows. It looks much better on my lids. I don't really have any pink undertone at all so maybe that is why.
Perfect Best Friend Color
An absolute make-up staple for me. I love using this in my crease or all over, the perfect neutral brown. Looks particularly good with Naked Lunch & Satin Taupe for a neutral, polished daytime look.
I absolutely love this eyeshadow! It pulls a little orange on my skin but that's a good thing because it brings out my blue eyes. This shadow is very smooth and blends easily. I've never had a problem working with this one. It's just a great shadow!
