A while back I ordered some MAC samples from thebodyneeds2.com, and they asked me if I wanted to try some of their shadows too.
I got to pick 4 shadows from them, I picked three shades from their Blackened -collection, and one lighter shade.
The colors I got were: (L to R) Blackened Emerald, Blackened Turquoise, Blackened Violet, Juniper and Pixie Dust:
The blackened colors are pure awesomeness!
This is just superpretty, dark, but when light hits it, it really stunning!
Blackened Violet in inner and outer corner, Sugarpill Hysteric in the middle of the lid.
Once upon a time I searched for the perfect green (I'm still searching for the perfect red!), and thought that Pure Luxe's Pandora was the One. I've since accepted that there can be many perfect colors, but this is damn near perfection!
Blackened Emerald in both inner and outer corners, and Sugarpill Absinthe in the middle of the lid. MAC Undercurrent as a liner.
Even though I love the purple and green, this is my favorite. This is pure awesomeness beyond all words.I LOVE IT.
Blackened Turquoise in both inner and outer corners, Fyrinnae Sleepy Hollow in the middle of the lid, TBN Pixie Dust in the very inner corner.
This is a really nice, gold-toned glitter. Can't be really used as a highlighter by itself, but it works really well over highlighters and darker shadows.
And last my MAC samples...
They weren't so special :S I don't know what I was expecting from MAC, but these were boring:
PS, still few days to enter my Illamasqua contest, if you haven't already!
