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.

MAC Colourizations Swatch 8 and 4
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?
