Swatches (WET): MAC Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow in Pinkluxe

From the MAC website: Eye Shadow innovation like you’ve never seen before. The pure power of pigment in a creamy, lightweight hybrid, offering distinctive effects – applied wet for a super saturation of colour with metallic brilliance, or dry for sheer coverage with a soft, sparkling finish. Six palettes feature five complementary shades that glide on and blend beautifully for infinite day-to-night looks with matte to pearlescent finish.

When I first heard about MAC’s Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadows I just knew I had to have one. There aren’t many swatches out there just yet so I had to just pick a color and hope for the best. In fact I finally saw swatches for Pinkluxe the day after I had already placed my order and I was already having regrets. But the moment I swatched this palette for myself I just knew I made the right choice. This goes to show that you can’t always make your decisions based on someone else’s swatches. Good thing I went with my gut on this one.

I decided to first try this palette out wet because I was aiming for a bold look. I only used the bottom 3 shadows. The top 2 shadows were too frosty for my liking so I used a different brand for my highlighter. I pressed the 4th shade onto my lid (wet). Then I used the 5th shade in my crease and blended a little of the 3rd shade on top of that. I used a bit of the 1st shade on the inner corner of my eye. For my lower lash line I used the 3rd shade (wet).

To say that I love this palette would be a huge understatement. I so LOVE me some pinks and purples! The shadows that I used blended nicely. The texture was perfect. I did experience a crazy amount of fallout though. So much sparkle I felt like Edward Cullen. But I always do my eye makeup first so that I can clean up afterward. Is that weird? Almost everyone I know of does their eye makeup last. Anyway, beside the massive amounts of sparkles all over my face this palette is just amazingly gorgeous and I love it! And 9 hours later there is hardly no fading or creasing. I should also mention that when hubby first saw me today he said ‘WOW! Your eyes!’ He usually always compliments my makeup, but I don’t always get the ‘WOW!’ Pink and purple sparkles, yo!
