MAC Eyeshadow Parfait Amour Review & Swatches


MAC Eyeshadow Parfait Amour


Another shade from MAC‘s permanent line of eyeshadow and yeah no prize for guessing – a purple shade. I will cover purples and then shift to greens and blues and am sure you will share your favourites to make the list even more beautiful.

Size – 1.3 gm,

Price – 720 /- INR, Available at MAC stores across India

Shade – Parfait Amour is described as blue violet with shimmer; it is beautiful summery blue than purple I must say or in simple words it is cool toned blue based purple and on my skin it is more like blue then a PROPER PURPLE shade.

Texture – It is from FROST finish range which has some amazing shades like Deep Truth, Bronze, Amber Lights but guess the purples in this range are not good enough or say are 50 – 50, the last one I reviewed Crème De Violet was also bummer and so is this shade but the two shades – Cranberry and Nocturnella are stunning and they are PURPLE.

Pigmentation – Once you swipe your fingers on eye shadow it may appear soft and pigmented ( like in pictures you can see ) but once you layer it on eyes it is so sheer and even after multiple layering the sheerness doesn’t go away easily . I find this the most pathetic purple eye shadow from MAC’s permanent line. That being said, I have seen people raving this, so I request you to swatch this before buying and even try using it with brush also apart from just swatching.

Staying power – It needs good base underneath to show and then it may show up with multiple layering but then it really fades so easily and vanishes in a couple of hrs.

What I like about MAC Eyeshadow Parfait Amour :

  • I do like the colour honestly.

What I don’t like MAC Eyeshadow Parfait Amour :

  • The first thing is poor pigmentation and then the powdery feel of it.
  • It doesn’t show up easily even after much layering.
  • Some eyeshadows I feel can be worn even without primer but with this it is impossible.
  • The colour is hard to build and blend and needs a lot of efforts.

Ratings – 2 / 5: It is very hard to work as the pigmentation is too bad, a lot of layering and then the powdery feel. I again mention, do try this in store with brush and try working around before investing.
