Aire-de-bleu*: (Danse collection, 2006) This is a light shimmery blue, not as frosty or silvery as Azreal Blue. Applied dry it's a sheer icy blue and applied wet it's a more intense sky blue. It's fairly cool-toned so I could see it being hard to wear for some skintones, but overall it's a nice shade. I like pairing with navy liner and pale pink cheeks and lips.
Antique Green*: Oh, how I love shimmery teals. I was very pleased to see this in MAC's Overrich collection. Swatched on my hand it's greener and not as bright as Teal pigment, but on my lids it was very close, which is why I took a lipstick off - it was just a touch more subtle than Teal. It works as a crease color or liner, or if you're feeling really daring, a lid color.
Copperized*: I love green shadow so I was very pleased to see a dark green pigment in the Rushmetal collection. This is a beautiful deep olive with bronze shimmer - definitely not the forest green that Nightlight is. It's too dark to wear as a wash on my fair skin (at least for daytime) but it's great in the crease with a lighter green or pale gold, and would make an amazing smoky eye when used wet. Excellent texture too, very smooth and silky with little fallout during application. This will definitely be a fall staple for me!
Entremauve*: (Nocturnelle, 2006) I gave this a four out of five since it's not that unique of a shade, but it's a nice shimmery purple. It's very dark yet doesn't make me look bruised, which is something I'm always concerned about when wearing purples given my fair skin. I suspect it works because it's on the cool side with no red tones. I like to wear this in the crease with a lighter shade, but sometimes I wear it all over the lid and applied wet for a smoky eye. I haven't tried it as a liner but I bet it would work beautifully. Overall it's one of the nicest purples I've come across.
Goldenaire*: (Lingerie, 2006) Unique and pretty shade but I took a lipstick off because it's not all that flattering next to my eye color. I was hoping it would show up on me the way it does in the jar (golden peach with slight pink undertones) but just looks like a pale goldish pink, which clashes a bit with my light brown eyes. Still, I liked this a lot better than Deckchair pigment since it's not as frosty. It makes a nice wash and can be combined with a lot of other colors, so its versatility would make me repurchase.
Golder's Green*: (She Shines, 2006) This reminds me a bit of Stila's discontinued Kiwi eyeshadow, but much more metallic and shimmery. It's a bright lime green with yellow-gold shimmer that looks great as wash or paired with a more neutral shade. It looks gorgeous on brown eyes but would also be pretty on blue or green eyes. Since it's not too dark or light I think it would be flattering on a range of skintones, it's a good versatile green.
Mutiny*: (Naughty Nauticals, 2008) This is not for the faint of heart - a bright, pigmented shimmery blue that's a cross between aqua and sky and can easily veer into clown territory no matter what your coloring is. But if you apply it with a light hand and not over the entire lid, just on the outer half, it shows up a very nice pastel blue that's not over the top at all. If you want to go for the full-on, Mimi-from-the-Drew-Carey-show look, use it wet and apply it all over the lid (I did actually do this for a night out.) Overall, if you like light blues I think it's different enough from others I've seen to warrant purchasing. I gave this a four out of five only because it's not what you'd call a versatile shade.
Nightlight*: (She Shines, 2006) This is definitely one of the best pigments MAC has come out with in a while. It's a gorgeous shimmery forest green but somehow is still suitable for daytime wear. In the jar it looks close to Greensmoke eyeshadow but when applied it's much smoother and more complex. I love putting it in the crease with Lucky Green eyeshadow all over the lid, but it looks great with any other light warm green shade, golds or neutrals. It would make a great liner, not to mention a killer green smoky eye. If you like greens this is a must-have in my opinion.
Pastorale*: (Danse, 2006) Beautiful color but this is one of the messiest pigments MAC has come out with. The good: it's a subtle pale greyish green that's similar to Lustreleaf, but with a much smoother texture and with silver microglitter instead of heavy frost. The bad: the microglitter gets EVERYWHERE. I've never had a MAC pigment "shed" as much as this. Even when applied wet (and very carefully!) the sparkles ended up all over my face. Fortunately they didn't continue migrating throughout the day, but the application didn't go so easily. Overall though this is worth getting, especially if you're a little afraid of color - this green is muted and not over the top. I can't wait to wear it in the spring with pale coral lips and cheeks.
Shimmertime*: (She Shines, 2006) This is a shimmery pale neutral pink, not too warm and not too cool. It makes a great wash for fair and medium skin tones and would really brighten up darker ones. I like pairing this with dark grey in the crease but chocolate brown and plum would work well too. It's not the most unique color so I gave this a four out of five, but overall it's pretty and versatile.
Subtle*: (Nocturnelle, 2006) This is a very pretty neutral but not necessary if you already own MAC Coco pigment since they show up identically, at least on my fair skin. I guess if you're a taupe addict and will use up several jars of pigment or if you missed Coco when it was released, this is worth buying. But if you rarely wear taupey greyish-plummy neutrals (like me - my "neutral" eye shadow color is pale gold, since cool taupes clash with my eye color and actually make me look tired) then it's not such a great buy.
Vintage Gold*: (Overrich, 2008) I was afraid this would be too similar to shades I already own since I've amassed quite a collection of green shadows, but I was pleasantly surprised at how unique this is. Not as green as Copperized or Golden Olive pigments and not as brown as Stila La Douce, this falls right in the middle of olive and dark gold. It's especially flattering on my brown eyes but I think it would look great with any eye color and skintone. The texture of this pigment is great too - metallic, silky-smooth, and works equally well wet or dry.
Your Ladyship*: (Antiquitease, 2007) I was hesitant to buy this as I was afraid it would just be a chalky neutral with glitter thrown in, but it's actually quite nice. It's a pale sparkly pinky-beige that would look good on any skintone. I think it may be too glittery as a wash, at least in daytime, but it's very versatile. I like wearing it in the inner corner and browbone with a dark shadow blended on the rest of the lid, or as a wash with thick black winged liner for a sex kitten look. Very pleased with this!
