MAC Eyeshadow Trax Review, Swatch, EOTD

MAC Eyeshadow Trax

Highly pigmented powder. Applies evenly, blends well. Create a customized palette of shades. Fits into Pro Palette case for easy storage and transport.

This is the last of my cute little MAC haul I did.I purchased this eye shadow due to the duo chrome/multidimensional nature it has.

Mac describes this as burgundy plum with shimmer and the finish is velvet.

I have to say that the texture did not impress me at the very start. It is not as soft and when you pick it up, the burgundy plum is lost and the golden is the only shade that you can see. I tried the shade on a black base, but no luck, then I tried it on the lid without any base and I had to really layer it on and on for the color to show. I thought a maroon would look good in the crease with this so I filled the crease with some plum maroon shade and then it started to look very bridal. :P

When you layer it on is the gold tends to show up more,the base is plum and matte and the shimmer is not gritty but it is the soft ingrained gold in it that multidimensional and their is no fall out as the pigmentation is quite sad on this one.You really wish the color would show up on the lids as it is in the pan but it does not, and layering makes it look golden plum rather than a plum with gold.

The color shows up more like a maroon on my skin tone and hence I thought it is bridal. I wish the texture was soft but it is not. But on the good side, when I do tend to make it work by layering it on, it looks very flattering for my complexion,so I can say it looks good on warm skin tones for sure.It is not for day wear and use it for your evening get together and Indian outfits.

Last word:

The texture and the pigmentation is disappointing,though when you layer it up, the duo chrome really pretty. Their is no fall out because you have to pick up and layer the shade with much difficulty. The shade looks maroon plum and gold due to its duo chrome nature and works for my complexion.
