The 1st time I came across this name was in 2010 on YouTube. It was till much later that i found out that it was a MAC shadow. I was majorly into matte shades then so the name itself scared me off. Shimmer and glitter were things to run away from then. Then sometime last year I went shopping for some shadows to use for my bros wedding and happened to swatch it and was amazed! For the longest time i’d ignored this shade and just because of its intimidating name (ok, it was intimidating to me 😉 ) and here I waa ogling it now.
MAC eyeshadows come in the usual black circular packaging and even come in refill form. I picked the refill since i have an empty palette. The refills are a tad bit pricier though.
Price: INR 900 / INR 750 for the refill
Color: MAC describes this shade as a beige with gold pearl. I find it to be mildly peachy on me as well. The shade is gorgeous and looks lovely worn alone as well or even when used as a highlighter. The shade looks more shimmery in the pan and swatch than it actually does on the lids so dont worry..this is actually a very wearable shade for work as well.
Texture & Finish: This eyeshadow has a veluxe pearl finish which is one of my favs since it has the perfect sheen witbout looking OTT. Its as smooth as cream and easy to apply.
Pigmentation: Its very well pigmented and one does not need to use much effort while applying this. There is a tiny bit of fallout but too minute to be a cause for complaint.
Staying Power: Now this is probably my only complaint. I have dry lids and even then this shadow creases on me. I have to wear a primer or base underneath if i want this to last more than 3hrs on my lids. However, when used over a base like MaC Nubile or MAC Vintage Selection, this easily stays on for 5hrs sans creasing.
How to wear this?
1. Alone on the lids. It brightens up the eyes immediately making me look fresh and awake.
2. As a lid shade with a deeper crease shade like MAC Cork, Mac Wedge or MAC Expensive Pink
3. Use an angled brush and apply a bit on the lower lashline for a luminous look.
What I like about MAC All That Glitters Eyeshadow:
- A must have shade
- Cost effectine in refill form
- Great pigmentation
- I love the smooth texture and finish
- Versatile shade
What I don’t like about MAC All That Glitters Eyeshadow:
- Creases on me
- Staying power sucks
Final Verdict: I am disappointed that sans base this hardly has any staying power. But having said this, I love how it luks and how it makes me look. It gives a very luminous and glowy feel to the entire look. I usually wear it alone over a base and just use a liner and masacara and thats it. In the pic, I have worn it with MAC Shale in the crease.
My advise would be to go for this for that gorgeous bright and highlight look. Its not a must-have MAC eyeshadow in particular but one of those shades which all.of us should have in our vanity…for a date-night/day or weddings or even a day at work.
