MAC Stars & Rockets eyeshadow ($18 Cdn) is a purple with pink pearl in a veluxe pearl finish. It is one of the most beautiful yet poorly formulated eyeshadows from MAC. I personally love the duo chrome color, but the texture is a far cry from amazing. It is not the smoothest eyeshadow from the lot and comes across as rather  chalky. Despite its shortcomings, I like this eyeshadow simply because it is gorgeous. It is wonderful to use in the crease for doing pale purple eye looks. Only if it had better pigmentation, then only there would be justice done to this beautiful color. Do I recommend? Only with some apprehensions!


A better swatch will be updated shortly

    The color looks so pretty in the pan but the swatch looks nothing like it at all. And I have to agree that it does look rather chalky. This is a bit of a disappointment considering it’s from MAC :/

    The color is definitely a killer..the duochrome effect does it all…perfect fr a night on the town..The chalkiness does take away from it but I’d still like to see it on ur lid :)

    Hi,

    Its a lovely color. Have u tried applying it with a damp brush! Even Bare Escentuals have come with a quad having this color but it is too intense and UD made one too.
    This is a great color but really has its shortcomings too.

    Brilliant post…………….

        U can dampen it with a face mist like MAC fix plus or any…….blot the excess moisture on tissue as that moisture otherwise gets transferred to the product. Then dip the brush into shadow.
        If u r scared just the way I am especially about MAC eyeshadow, use it on one corner..also leave the eyeshadow open for couple of minutes so that any excess moisture evaporates!!
