MAC Retrospeck Eyeshadow ($18/$14 Cdn for refill) is as a “beached blonde” eyeshadow in a lustre finish. It is the perfect highlight eyeshadow for a dark, intense smokey eye. I like to pair it with darker shades such as MAC Knight Divine, MAC Print, just to name a few. It is not your everyday highlight/all over lid colour, you would only want to use it for a night time’s look. Well, but that’s just me, you can do whatever floats your boat There is fall out, so the texture is not perfect. Also, since it is more or less a highlight shade, the pigmentation is sheer. Having said that, I still do like it a lot as a highlight shade, the effect it has is that of a metallic sheen.
Overall thoughts: It is a nice highlight shade which ends up in a metallic sheen. Not a must have, by any means; falls in the “nice to have” category.
Overall Rating: B-
