MAC Gold Snow Ball Eye Compact Review, Photos, Swatches

Gold

MAC Gold Snow Ball Eye Compact ($29.50 for 0.28 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that includes six eyeshadows. They are nearly full-sized (the Dazzleshadow shades are slightly less at 0.04 oz. but the other four are actually 0.05 oz. each, which is full-sized). The palette left something to be desired, as they were not the most usable or blendable on their own. This was a palette that required primer and/or a glitter adhesive to work well.

Frosted Fizz

Frosted Fizz is a soft beige with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish. It had good color payoff in a single layer (which may be harder to discern in the photo, as it was closer to my skin tone). The consistency was smooth but more firmly pressed in the pan, which helped minimize excess kickup in the pan but was not enough to hinder blending. It wore nicely for seven and a half hours for me.

Dazzle the Night Away

Dazzle the Night Away is a light gold with warm, yellow undertones and a sparkling finish. The texture was chunkier and looser, which gave it a drier feeling overall. It had sheer coverage when applied dry and semi-sheer coverage when applied dampened. I had to really pat and pack it on with fingertips to get greater coverage out of it, and there was a ton of fallout when I used this shade both during application as well as throughout the seven-hour wear time.

Spun from Gold

Spun from Gold is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a chunky, glittery finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation when applied with a dry brush, and it did intensify to opaque coverage when applied with a dampened brush. The eyeshadow felt more loosely pressed and seemed to have less binding ingredients, so it felt drier to the touch. There was heavy fallout during application unless I used it with a dampened brush or patted over an adhesive base. It lasted for seven hours but had some fallout over time.

Evening Light

Evening Light is a medium bronze with warm undertones and a golden, pearly sheen. It had excellent color payoff with a smooth, blendable texture that wasn’t too softly or too firmly pressed into the pan. The eyeshadow lasted for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Well Past Midnight

Well Past Midnight is a medium black with fine, multi-colored pearl over a matte finish. It had medium, buildable color coverage with a stiff, dry texture that was harder to blend out on the lid. I had the best luck packing it onto the lid and using the other gray shade in the palette to diffuse the edges. This shade stayed on well for seven and a half hours.

Cinder

Cinder is a deep gray with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a firmer, stiffer texture that made it harder to pickup product with a brush as well as when it came to diffusing and blending out the eyeshadow on the skin. The color stayed on well for seven and a half hours on me.
