MAC Heavenly Creature Mineralize Eye Shadow in Earthly, Aurora, and Universal Appeal


 This is my third and final installment of the MAC Heavenly Creature Mineralize Eyeshadow review and swatches. If you are interested in my review or swatches of the other colors of this collection click here for Bright Moon, Water, and Sky, or here for Neo Nebula, Invincible Light, and Magnetic Attraction.



Earthly-
This is a great stand alone shadow. It contains taupe, brown, and gold. It is very natural looking. Since it is swirled with both taupe and brown any skin color can be matched by blending. This means you can make a perfectly natural look with adding a touch of gold, or a slight smoky look adding a touch of brown. You can create contrast and drama as well. Apply wet or over primer for drama and dry over lids for shimmer.

Aurora-
This shadow contains a brick red, pinkish taupe, brown, and a hint of gold. This is another natural shade that I think would suit a large range of skin tones. This is another all in one shadow. You have a lid color, crease color, under brow, and outer corner. How you play with it and your skin color determine where each goes, but hey remember there are no real rules in makeup. Apply wet or dry.

Universal Appeal
This shadow combines an old idea in a new way. Anyone who has taken a basic art class knows complimentary colors.. compliment each other. Red/green, blue/orange, and lastly, purple/yellow. All these combos create the best contrast. Not to mention that adding one to the other will create brown, always. Ok art lesson over. Companies for some time now have been combining purple and yellow but Mac has done it a little differntly. Since these colors are swirled together with a metallic base. You can use purple, yellow, dark burgundy (red metallic- base) or swirl it up for a shimmery brown. This is very versatile and can be combine with Neo Nebula, Invincible Light, Aurora, Earthly, even Magnetic Attraction. This shade can blend anyway you want it to. So if you have the other shades, or you just picked up this one I hope your having fun with all the color combinations.
