In case you were wondering - I finally depotted all of my MAC eyeshadows so I could put them in a palette. Half to save space, and half to have them all in one spot!
MAC describes Sumptuous Olive as a "khaki with pearl" with Veluxe Pearl finish. Its a medium olive green with strong gold tones. I really like this shade because the green to it makes for a flattering gold tone where other golds fail against my skin. I didn't have anything all too similar, but rather a whole lot of things that would work well with this.
With this being the first Veluxe Pearl that I've tried, I can say I'm quite interested in trying more with the finish. It is buttery and pigmented - and feels a lot like a Urban Decay eyeshadow in formula. It applied very well and blended easily. I wore this over Urban Decay Sin with MAC Copperplate in the crease, and it ended up being a really nice take on a neutral eye with just a hint of color. In terms of wear time, I saw no problem whatsoever and it didn't fade or crease.
- Unique shade.
- Rich pigmentation.
- Blends well.
- Good wear time.
- Can be paired with a large range of colors.
If all Veluxe Pearls are like this, sign me up! I'm totally loving this one and I can't wait to try more!
