Product Musings: MAC Mineralized Eyeshadow Blue Sorcery Review and Swatches

There is something so magical about MAC Mineralized Eyeshadow in Blue Sorcery.

Believe it or not I’ve been avoiding the MAC counter like the plague since the release of the MAC Holiday Collection 2009. Oh I know MAC and MAC knows me. It’s likely I’ll haul tons of Holiday like it’s going out business if I’m not careful that’s why I’ve been biding my time carefully for the big day I do finally head to counter. Fact is I am somewhat off the jet plane I used to be on where I was rushing to MAC as soon as a collection released. I’m calmer now, a little less hyped, more level headed about my purchases….as its probably evident I have WAY too much MAC.

But today I can Muse a little with you about MAC Mineralized Eyeshadow Blue Sorcery. Wanna join in?


Out of everything released this Holiday one of the first and last lemmings I had was MAC Mineralized Eyeshadow in Blue Sorcery. If you read a fair bit around these parts you’ll know I have a certain obsession with shades of teal, aqua, oceany blues, etc……Blue Sorcery fits right into my passion.

Made up of a frosty silver and a bright turquoise the color makes me drool myself into a cosmetic frenzy. The color manages to cocktail a dominate green base with a bright blue to create the dept of turquoise you see in the pot. I call it brilliance.

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model.

    this was the only thing that caught my eye from the holiday collection but i decided against it because i thought the turquoise shade was too similar to steamy…thoughts?

    • the Muse

      mmm mela not really hun because steamy has more green in it. This is way deeper! want side by side swatches?

  • Emmy

    oh i have been avoiding the mac counter too! i know if i get too close i wont be able to resist lol and now that i’ve seen how frosty and gorgeous that turquoise is….

    • the Muse

      hi emmy! Ditto. I’ve been trying hard to be good about mac πŸ˜€ but this is GORGGGGGG!

    “I’m calmer now, a little less hyped, more level headed about my purchases….as its probably evident I have WAY too much MAC.”

    I LOL-ed at this Izzy dear!

    For me, it’s this… “I’m calmer now, a little less hyped, more level headed about my purchases….as its probably evident I have WAY too much makeup!”

    Haha! But indeed, the shadow is gorgeous, but not something I’d pick up if I don’t have the extra moolah πŸ™ MAC’s been a little off my list lately πŸ™

    • the Muse

      LOL plue πŸ˜€ Glad I made you laugh doll!

      mine too don’t feel bad. I’m kinda glad and sad it’s off my list :-0D At least I’m richer LOL!

    Hi there,
    I’ve been an avid fan of your blogs but this is the first time I’ve posted anything. I just bought Blue Sorcery today and am wearing now out to a cocktail party. It is great as I, like yourself, love the blues, teals, etc..it goes out really well (the frosty bit is a bit harder but I just dabbed that on lightly as the shimmer is intense).. Thumbs up as the colour pay off on the turquoise is outstanding!

    Love it.
    and Love your Beauty words more.

      hi toshiko! so happy you came out to say hello! Love my singaporean readers :-D! Thank you for your lovely compliment/comment!

      Blue Sorcery is incredible right? I thought it went on incredibly wet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! πŸ˜€ I didn’t like the silver though, it was so gritty and awful, wish the entire shadow was made up of the beautiful teal πŸ˜€ Thanks for sharing your technique for application because I thought it was a little frosty as well!


  • su-pah

    very nice, i have the MES in midnight madness, it’s a taupey-grey crescent with the other portion in gold glitter.

    • the Muse

      hey supha! Know exactly the one you mean and a gorgeous one as well πŸ˜€

  • Lisa

    I got the MES in Devil-May-Care. The gorgeous purple one. I was torn between Blue Sorcery and mine. For some reason though I have been on a purple streak, so I ended up getting that one. Also, I was a bit worried since I am pretty pale and already have blue eyes that the teal would be too much (I tend to feel like I always have too much make up on no matter what). Though it did look fabulous as a swatch in the store. Perhaps I shall go back and just try it on.

    • the Muse

      Hey Lisa I think I want that one too. I think I always wear too much makeup πŸ˜€ haha. I think you’ll like it, it’s quite a unique shade πŸ˜€ the silver side is crummy though be warned πŸ˜›

  • Christy

    I tried to budget myself on my first trip for the MAC Holiday collections and I skipped this. Then I ended up going back a week later after I realized it was too gorgeous to pass up. It is so pretty!

    • the Muse

      Hi Christy glad you hauled it as I thought it was very pretty and unique πŸ˜€ It’ll probably sell out before Holidays arrive πŸ˜€

  • Vonvon

    I tried this out in my fav MAC store yesterday and my MA paired it up with Blue Flame and it was gorgeous!

    Me like you too….buying time and restraining myself from making any purchase from this collection yet…..

    • the Muse

      hi vonvon!

      Ooo I have Blue Flame, must try a combo! πŸ˜€ I’m really avoiding it at the moment as I want other stuff but MAC is so bloody tempting!

  • Sylvana Clark

    Hi, I am an avid fan of Blue Sorcery and have trouble finding it now. Last week I dropped my newest one on the bathroom floor and of course it shattered. Just wondering if you can suggest a dupe to the teal colour? I was thinking Shimmermoss? Do you have another suggestion? Thanks!
