MAC Colourizations Swatch 1 and 2
Double Feature 1 and Double Feature 2

Double Feature 1 is a really great combo of bright yellow and deep eggplant purple. It’s kind of an unexpected combination but I really like it. Both of these shades felt soft and pretty nicely pigmented.

Double Feature 2 is a fabulous bright lime green and a deep purplish-grey with shimmer. Again, another really odd combo, but one I like a lot. The lime green was very pigmented but the grey was slightly less so.

Double Feature 8 and Double Feature 4

Double Feature 8 is a bright orange and a deep navy blue/purple color. Nice combo, but the shadows weren’t as pigmented with this duo for some reason.

Double Feature 4 is a gorgeous deep green and a medium cork colored brown. The green was really soft and pigmented and surprisingly the brown was decent also. Usually their mattes are much more chalky to the touch, but this one worked well. I’m not so sure about this color combo though!

MAC Colourizations Swatch 5 and 6
Double Feature 5 and Double Feature 6

Double Feature 5 is a very pale pink and a duo-chrome deep brown that flashes green. The pink is ok, nothing to write home about. The brown though is really pigmented and has a really strong flash. Nice!

Double Feature 6 is a light taupe matte, which barely shows up on my skin. It was a little chalky and not very pigmented. The bronze however is really pretty and has good pigmentation. Again I don’t love this color combo, but I love the bronze one.

Availability: Preview at Nordstrom and The Bay then in North America and International in August.

Pricing: $25.00 for eyeshadow duos and $15.00 for the liners.

Will you be picking any of these up?

    What is the size compared to a regular MAC shadow?

  • July 5, 2011

    The duochrome one looks intriguing!

  • July 5, 2011

    I’m also curious as to how these compare with regular shadows. And they remind me a lot of L’OREAL HIP duos – especially the gold and purple.

    • July 5, 2011

      I was just thinking that. I actually have that gold/purple HiP duo.

      But I’m more interested in that orange!

  • July 6, 2011

    do i recognize some of the regular shades? Is the dark one in nr5 scene?

  • July 6, 2011

    I am a bit confused by the duos. Why don’t the eye shadows have names? The brown/green duochrome looks like Club so why not tell it’s Club? The purple in Double Feature 1 looks like Nocturnelle the gold like Gorgeous Gold. Why not tell it? :(
    The premade quads always have the names of the eye shadows written on them. :( Are there any names or numbers on the back, Kelly? :(

    I will pass any of the duos because not naming the eye shadows from MAC is a huge no-go for me.

    Nonetheless your swatches are really pretty and you now make me to finally grab my Club eye shadow again and use it. :)

    • July 6, 2011

      You said it! I’m very intrigued by the Lime color in nr.2 though. I think a lot of the shades are recognizable, Club, Woodwinked perhaps, Brule or something similar and what looks like Hush. Come on, Mac, give is the names!! 😀

    I like them but I’d rather use them on summer, since for fall and winter I prefer darker matte eye shadows.

    Are there any dupes / close relatives for the brown shade in double feature 4? I love the brown, not crazy about the green and cant justify spending $25 for the two when I’ll never use one of them.

  • July 6, 2011

    I wish I could combine the lime green from #2 with the purple from #1!

  • July 6, 2011

    I am not feeling any of these. WnW newest palettes will be out on the 15th, right? I am not happy with MAC at the moment.

  • July 6, 2011

    Well hello there Bright Lime and Grey :) :)

  • July 9, 2011

    Love to buy many of them! Gorgeous.
