One of the few shitty things about getting older is the slowly creeping crépeiness of one's precious eyelids; it begins sooner than you think too so don't give me that look while I'm cane-waving, missy. I've turned more toward a feature lip at the moment but I'll probably be terrifying children with electric eel+wondergrass when I'm eighty. Just for the record, I have green eyes, sensitive, nontanning pale skin and normal-to-oily lids. Nothing in the shadow selection below irritates me and I'm a good 'canary' for sensitivities. Here's a random range of glittery goodness. On my partner's arm ha ha ha snort. He loved every minute of it.
ALL MAC UNLESS STATED. SOME PIGMENTS, SOME SHADOWS. (Please respect my copyright on these.)
1 ORB A really nice, not too pink base/nude/canvas shade. Matte, finely milled, makes your eyes looked dressed.
2 A NATURAL FLIRT (LE) Great pale champagne, delicious formula, a more dimensional nude.
3 FROZEN An icy silver white pigment from back in the day. Frosty without being unflattering.
4 ALL THAT GLITTERS Fucking frosty and cooler than I expected. Not as nice as it looks here. Fallout.
5 OUTRE Fantastic dirty matte mustard, very mutable according to light and skin, more whack than it looks here.
6 GOLDMINE Buttery yellow gold; MAC's best- I've tried them all. Warm, flattering, very little fallout.
7 GOLDEN LEMON Fallout monster but so gorgeous I don't care. Singing xmas gold with minute glitter.
8 AMBER LIGHTS Jesus H Christ this is frosty. Pretty shade but super-eyefucking. Approach with caution.
9 OFF THE PAGE (LE?) Golden orange perfection. Great formula, much nicer than it appears here. Seize it.
10 MUSEUM BRONZE+TEA TIME Boring alone but in a half-half mix they're a useful grown-up bronze.
1 LUSTRELEAF So misunderstood and underrated. A beautiful, sheer lichen-green wash shade. Fantastic.
2 LUCKY GREEN Eyefucking bright golden green, almost duotone. Good wet or dry.
3 WONDERGRASS (LE) Deeelectable loud, graphic intense green. Fabulous off-matte formula. Perfection.
4 SASSY GRASS (LE) Deep crayon/tree green matte. Massively pigmented. Bury me in Sassy Grass. Orgasmic.
5 SWIMMING + KELLY GREEN MIX Kind of boring apart, a nice happy lo-sheen lime together.
6 KRYOLAN CHARTREUSE Very true matte 'treuse, but oxidizes like they all do, even with a hardcore base.
7 TEAL PIGMENT + PARROT MIX Prettier than it looks here. A good lo-sheen cake-icing blue.
8 ELECTRIC EEL Saturated matte cyan, very circus, much stronger than it looks here, absolutely brilliant.
9 ODALISQUE (LE) A grown-up deep teal with a green lean, I'm sort of going off it. A bit tasteful :)
10 ATLANTIC BLUE Matte, deeply saturated, true strong boat-blue. One of MAC's best ever shades.
1 FREE TO BE (LE)+ PINK FRONTIER MIX Makes a lovely coral-leaning pink. Super wearable.
2 PASSIONATE Much stronger red pink than it looks here, sorry. Super matte, very workable, divine.
3 URBAN DECAY STING Great dirty lustrous pink, silky formula, some sheen, not too frosty. Classic.
4 STAR VIOLET Difficult, almost duotone rose/bronze. Bruisy on the wrong skin, lovely done right.
5 CUSTOM COPPER INVOLVING ABOUT 6 MIXED SHADES LOL I'm a copper freak. It had to be right.
6 RED BRICK+ORANGE PIGMENT Fabulous graphic orange matte, makes a green eye go mad.
7 GOLDENROD+A LITTLE CHROME YELLOW Goldenrod just needed a boost.
8 NAPOLEAN PERDIS MATTE RED Pure matte RED DRAMA, deeper and truer than it looks. The best saturated, siren ruby-woo type red. Stains. Terrifying.
9 SOFT WASH GREY Crap capture here. A sheer chromed mauve, complex and pretty. Nice formula.
10 PUSH THE EDGE+GRAPE PIGMENT MIX My best ever custom purple, almost duotone; love it.
11 FIG 1 A deep, dramatic dirty purple matte, fabulous for a green/hazel eye.
1 MANIC PANIC RAVEN EYELINER A nice, underrated waxy matte liner.
2 MANIC PANIC EYELINER BLUE ANGEL EYELINER Fantastic blue; tenacious on waterline.
3 UNDERCURRENT PEARLGLIDE LINER (LE) Fucking glitter migrates everywhere. Beautiful, unwearable.
4 BORDEAUXLINE PENCIL Slightly dry but nonbruisy purple, sometimes irritant on the waterline.
5 FOXY LADY EYE KOHL (LE) Ancient LE, totally hot rosy red with gold reflect; sexy, nasty, lasting.
6 NC15/20 CHROMAGRAPHIC PENCIL Great for evening out a blotchy eye, and on the waterline.
7 BODYSHOP BURNISHED AMBER EYE DEFINER BS liners used to be great, now not so much. Wimpy.
8 GREY UTILITY POWERPOINT PENCIL Nice matte mid grey smudger, dries and stays in place. Ok on w/l.
9 WAVELINE FLUIDLINE Pretty true royal blue. Nice formula. Stays put
10 MACROVIOLET FLUIDLINE Blackened mauve, great for a smoky eye, stays put nicely.
11 DARK DIVERSION FLUIDLINE (LE) Fabulous smoked wine, nicer than the pic, crusty if over-applied.
12 OTHERWORDLY PAINT POT (LE) Oh Alexander, why did you leave us? Beautiful chalk-blue.
13 BARE CANVAS PAINT (TUBE) The best primer and anchor ever. Caked up here; sheer it over lid. Primo.
14 NAKED PIGMENT Nice dimensional nude but nothing spectacular. Quite good lifespan on the lid.
