MAC Cosmetics Gorgeous Eyes Collection: Showstopper, Devilishly Dark, and Pink Freeze

I was lucky enough to receive a few quads from the upcoming MAC Cosmetics Gorgeous Eyes Collection to preview and let me tell you... they are amazing.

Clockwise from bottom left: Showstopper, Devilishly Dark, Pink Freeze

Those of you who are avid MAC fans may recognize these as having been previously released in the Asia-exclusive Lovely Collection this past Spring. However, now we North Americans will also be able to get our hands on them!

Showstopper is a neutral quad that contains Oh My Darling (pale frosty cream; frost), Jest (soft peach with icy shimmer; frost), Mineralism (softly tarnished silver with frost; lustre), and Showstopper (deep blackened brown; matte). I actually already own Showstopper (the eye shadow) and use it a ton as a crease colour so I'm glad it's making a reappearance in this collection for those who might not have it.


Devilishly Dark is another neutral quad with gold themes. It contains Manila Paper (pale frosted white gold; veluxe pearl), Goldmine (intense gold with shimmer; frost), Honey Lust (bronze-dipped peach; lustre), and Devilishly Dark (rich brown with gold pearl; frost). These shades are great for creating a gilded, warm eye.


Pink Freeze is a pink-based quad made up of Pink Freeze (bright pink with icy pearl; frost), Bruised Plum (frosted mid-tone dirty mauve; veluxe pearl); Deception (frosty golden brown; frost), and Magic Moor (purple grape; veluxe pearl). I don't usually gravitate towards cool, frosty colours like Pink Freeze but the addition of the other three shadows results in a gorgeous purple smokey eye.


Seriously, aren't they so pretty? MAC has always offered the option of custom-made quads but sometimes it's just easier when the pros have done it for you. After all, they're the ones who know what colour combinations work best together!

Find these three quads (plus two more - Melt My Heart and Hold My Gaze) as of August 15, 2013.

  2. I love the looks you've created and the palettes look so versatile. I've never tried any MAC eyeshadows before but Showstopper really reminds me of this Lancome eyeshadow palette I have.
