MAC By Request Eye Shadow Review & Swatches

This was provided to me by a brand for review but all opinions expressed are my own

The MAC By Request Collection has launched online at already. This is a selection of fan voted favorite shades and products that were brought back for a limited time.

Did you indulge?

I actually didn’t see anything in the batch I absolutely needed.

Let’s take a look at a few of the MAC By Request Eye Shadows and see if you need them.

You can’t really knock what people like. I might love something, you might not, that’s life. But I gotta say some of these shades that were introduced with MAC By Request seem terribly boring. I thought that something way popular and way nicer would be voted back.

But hey….I just got into MAC about 5 years ago? So these shades might have been something I’d roll around in fits of joy if I was an older MAC fan. I don’t technically own any of these shades and I don’t remember the hype surrounding them.

Guacamole is a light green with subtle golden accents. I wouldn’t call the gold sparkle or shimmer but more pearl-ish. The shade does have a frost finish but it’s surprisingly lightweight and doesn’t have a cakey, too sparkly look on my lids. The shade is pretty subtle in the pigment department but builds up to a nice grassy green on my lids. It’s probably one of the better frosts I’ve tried from MAC.

Jete is quite a nice shade which I don’t own. This is a sandy pink with a veluxe pearl finish. Again, color pay off was a bit subtle but it has a nice smooth finish on lids that gives off a little bit of a metallic finish. I liked how it seemed to reflect a little champagne, a little pink, and a tiny peach on my lids.

There is one other shade that was brought back with the collection which is Moth Brown. I didn’t try this color.

Although nice shades I’m unsure of the hype surrounding the colors. Perhaps I’m just too much of a MAC virgin to appreciate these come backs. I’d personally love something like Stereo Rose to make a return.

But hey, to each his/her own right?

Anything you LOVED from the MAC by Request Collection?

Remember these shades?

Do share!

About the Muse

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. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    From what I’ve heard about Moth Brown it’s supposed to be a HG color that every MAC junkie and their mother swear by. Kinda the same following that Satin Taupe has.
