Unsurpassable is a semi-sheer springy green reviews

  • Packaging – These eyeshadow are of the size of the MAC compact and they can not fit in the Pro palette. It has a round, transparent, plastic flap over it which makes it easy to pick up the shades if one owns a number of them. The eyeshadow looks really pretty  and looks like a mini baked earth fitted into a small pan.
  • Price – Rs1150 approx


This kind of eyeshadow works the best when applied wet though the pay off.  Unsurpassable Eyeshadow looks tad more pigmented when used wet.One surely needs an eye primer underneath these eyeshadows to get a good colour pay off otherwise there is lot of fall in these. I personally like using it over a paint pot, that way it stays long with less fall and good finish.

  • Color – It’s a semi sheer shade with shade of purple and teal in it and oodles of  different colour shimmer in it. If swatched dry, it doesn’t come out as pretty. I experienced lot of fall with it when dry and I was not able to apply evenly. Pigmentation does get better when wet and the copper and silver shimmer is more apparent.
  • Staying power– Even if I use a primer underneath it starts fading after three hours.
  • Texture – It’s satiny and smooth  and blending is easy with it.

Swatches of MAC Semi Precious Unsurpassable Eyeshadow 

Lighter shade in both the picture is dry and darker is wet.

It’s a semi sheer greyish light olive shade and I wish there could be more green or purple in it the way it comes out in the pan.

There is quite a bit of grey shimmer fall out in these therefore I am not that much impressed with the shade.I tried 2-3 looks with it which didn’t turned out as pretty as I wanted them to be. I would have worked more on the eye makeup look and showed you some  but I wanted to review it and show you the swatches of it before the collection gets sold out in the store.

Recommendation- You can pick these eye shadows if you are fond of mineralize makeup otherwise I won’t recommend this shade atleast..I personally would like to pick smoked ruby which is a beautiful dark burgundy brown shade  rather than this one.

Wise She Rating –

  • Overall – 3.5/5
  • Pigmentation – 3.5/5
  • Packaging -4.5/5
  • Staying power – 3/5
