Impulse shopping can be very bad for your purse strings. But when it’s the MAC Pastelluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow, maybe it’s better that your purse doesn’t have strings. It goes both ways – this palette can either be a great buy, or the complete opposite, depending on you. Let me explain.
First up, the palette contains 5 pastel shades:
- Bright Champagne with Pearlised Pigments
- Peachy Pink with Pearlised Pigments
- Pale Baby Pink
- Bright Lavender
- Mid-tone Beige Grey
The first four shades are super duper glittery and when applied dry, the glitter flies all over the place! On your bottom lids, cheekbones, dresser top, fingers, clothes… There are glitter flecks of different sizes and no prizes to guessing correctly which ones are the hardest to remove from surfaces! However, when applied wet, they are more well-behaved and go where they’re supposed to. The drawback is this: that even when used with a wet brush, the eyeshadows come off way too easily with a swipe of a piece of dry tissue. The only shade that acts like a normal eyeshadow is the last one (Mid-tone Beige Grey), which is more shimmer than glitter.
