Most Helpful Positive Review Stays on and worth the price!
I have always been a buyer of cheap drug store cosmetics until I started coming to the MAC counter to get the pro longwear lipstick and for years that was the only thing I bought from them. One day, however, a certain shade of eyeshadow caught my eye and I bought it. (though that voice in my head was going $15!?!? seriously?!?!)
Well, I took it home and started wearing it and I noticed from the first time that it didn't fade the way my other ones always do. Later when the summer time came and I was working in a hot room and sweating I noticed that the eyeshadow still looked like I just put it on at the end of the day. When put on over the paint pots as a base you can actually have sweat or water roll down your eyelid and take a dry towel or tissue and just blot it dry real quick and IT STILL LOOKS GOOD!!
I gradually started replacing all my drugstore eyeshadows with these from MAC. One day I was swatching them all on the back of my hand and then I had to go off and do dishes... after submerging my hands completely in warm water the eyeshadows were still on the back of my hand!! I had to put soap directly on them and rub a little before they came off - but this impressed me enough that now I don't think anything of paying $15 for these guys.
Most Helpful Critical Review Amazing Colors But Lacks Pigmentation
I love MAC products and the color selection for the eyeshadows are so beautiful! But sadly I was disappointed with the eyeshadow formula. It's patchy, dry, and the color barely shows up and is so faint. I purchased Parfait Amour (which barely showed up and is even hard to swatch) and Creme De Violet (which performed a lot better than Parfait Amour but still needed more pigmentation). To get these colors to work, I had to use a very generous layer of sticky eyeshadow primer. Using my regular silky eyeshadow primer did nothing with these shades and they didn't show up well. MAC, I love your color selection and the colors I bought and I'd buy more, but only if you work on your formula!

super sheer. more iridescent pink than orange. doesn't build very well.
Not very rich in color
JZL from North Kingstown, RI
Eye shadow looks a lot darker than it is. Even with primer it doesn't have great staging power. Disappointed.
Carrie from california
It's so smooth upon application and payoff is there. Best of all, no fallout
Sasha from PA
Eyeshadow is fine but the amount is tiny. My fault for not reading the description better. I love MAC lipstick but I won't buy this product again. ABH or Buxom are similar quality and a much better value.
Hot Mama from San Antonio
Great everyday color.
Carrie from los angeles
This formula is beautiful. There's no fallout, no fading, good pigmentation, and it just lays there so smooth.
Would not buy again

As I said I like the colors but the product irritates my eyes.
Dorothy from New Jersey
I have been wearing Malt eyeshadow for over 20+ years! It's an amazing neutral color that makes your everyday look very natural and pretty. I wear it almost everyday and it will last for months. I just always make sure I have a back up so I am never without it!!
Can't be used wet as eyeliner
Linda from F
I was told this shadow could be used wet with an eyeliner brush and setting spray as eyeliner. It did not work, using it wet created clumps. I will be returning it.
received used product
carrot from los angeles
The product itself is nice, but I received an eye shadow that obviously had a finger print in it. The packaging also had bunch of shadow dust. I'm wondering what kind of quality control Mac Online has bc what a waste of my time, money and environment to ship me a used product.....
Terrific Base Eyeshadow
BinDC from Washington,DC
I had asked my makeup artist for a recommendation on a neutral/vanilla/beige eye shadow. She suggested Brule. I purchased it, and the color is a perfect base layer for day or night looks. You won't be disappointed if you are looking for an amazing neutral!
I would buy this product

What colors have replaced or would be a comparable replacement to the colors below since I can no longer locate them?! I'm assuming they've been discontinued?
Sun Tweaked, After Dusk, and Pick Me Up.. these colors where part of a "Cool Neutral" color pallet I purchased...
Joanne from Massapequa, NU
Love this color and it lasts all day!
Serena72 from Modesto
I have a Mac eye shadow that is very low and don't use very often because the Trax has been discontinued. It was one of my all time favorite purples. It would be so awesome if it was brought back. Please please please reconsider bringing this color back on the shelves. You would have a super happy customer. I will give a 5 star once I see it back. Until than. Thank you.
Beautiful bronze shade
Socalcarly from Riverside CA
I absolutely love this color! It's perfect for a bronze Smokey eye and even as a liner. I love a daytime Smokey look in the fall and this is a winner! Warm tones with a little shimmer, has a bit of a plum color as well. Highly recommend
Socalcarly from Riverside CA
This color is great! Not ashy or orange. It also has a hint of shimmer which I love. Definitely something to try if you like a daytime Smokey or natural look. You can also build the color if you'd like a more dramatic effect. It's very easy to work with.
Perfect base shadow
Socalcarly from Riverside CA
This is a great all over lid color. It isn't too shiny or matte. It can go from day to night easily with soft shades to Smokey eyes. Great overall color to suit and skin tone.
Long lasting Shadow
