MAC Lunar Luck Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Made My Fortune

MAC Lunar Luck Eyeshadow x 9 Palette ($32.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette to celebrate the Lunar New Year. It includes nine shades split across five mattes and four shimmers. The mattes were consistently better-performing than the shimmers, though two shimmers were superb and one was a dud.

Shell We Celebrate

Shell We Celebrate is a medium peach with warmer, more orange-leaning undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was soft, lightly powdery but blendable and not apt to sheer out too readily. It had mostly opaque color payoff that wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$20.00/0.05 oz. – $400.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “pillow-soft, matte colour” that is “highly blendable” with “unbelievable slip” that has “stay-true colour” that doesn’t fade, crease, or dry out the lids. The majority of the shades were pigmented, though a few were more semi-opaque and buildable.

The texture was soft, smooth, and slightly powdery in the pan–softer and more yielding than the standard MAC matte eyeshadow–but had more glide for better adhesion and blendability on bare skin. The eyeshadows stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

They’re thinner and a bit more powdery than the long-discontinued Matte2 formula, though it was more like that finish than the current, matte finish in the brand’s permament range of eyeshadows. They were easier and more forgiving to work with than a lot of MAC’s eyeshadows, so they were improved and a nice addition to the brand’s range (they’re also available as pan-only for less).

Sunkissed Orange

Sunkissed Orange is an ultra-light orange with strong, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well as the texture was soft, lightly powdery but not prone fallout. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Born to Rule

Born to Rule is a rich, honeyed gold with moderate, warm undertones and a bright, metallic finish. The texture was moderately dense, almost overly so, which required a slightly heavier hand to pick up product evenly. It seemed to soften up a little over time. The eyeshadow had rich pigmentation that lasted well for eight hours on me.

Formula Overview

$20.00/0.05 oz. – $400.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “12-hour wear” with “silky smooth glide” and a “wet-like metallic texture.” The pigmentation is supposed to have “one-swipe saturation,” and most of the shades had nearly opaque to opaque coverage but a couple were more semi-opaque and buildable in coverage. The texture was lightly creamy, dense, and physically thicker than the average powder eyeshadow, and I found the thickness made them a little hard to work with, especially using a dry brush.

I had the best luck getting smooth, even coverage that didn’t emphasize my lid texture with a lightly dampened brush or fingertips (though I preferred the precision a brush offered). Some shades looked more metallic and “molten” while others had a subdued sheen (which didn’t seem fitting with the “Dazzleshadow Extreme” name, and on that note, these were not chocked full of sparkle in most instances, like Dazzleshadows are). I had faint creasing beginning between eight and 10 hours with most shades, while the color would be still be 70-75% intact after 12-hours of wear.

15 Minutes of Flame

15 Minutes of Flame is a rich, orange-brown with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color payoff with a smooth, velvety texture that was finely-milled, blendable, and not too powdery nor too firmly-pressed into the pan. This shade wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Made My Fortune

Made My Fortune is a medium gold with warmer undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The texture was slightly drier and more prone to fallout as the sparkles did not adhere with the base as well. I’d recommend using a fingertip to press this shade into place, which helped control the fallout. It had mostly opaque, buildable color payoff that stayed on well for eight hours with light fallout over time.

Plum What May

Plum What May is a dark red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation paired with a slightly firmer, drier texture, though it was fairly blendable in practice. This shade wore nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$20.00/0.05 oz. – $400.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “pillow-soft, matte colour” that is “highly blendable” with “unbelievable slip” that has “stay-true colour” that doesn’t fade, crease, or dry out the lids. The majority of the shades were pigmented, though a few were more semi-opaque and buildable.

The texture was soft, smooth, and slightly powdery in the pan–softer and more yielding than the standard MAC matte eyeshadow–but had more glide for better adhesion and blendability on bare skin. The eyeshadows stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

They’re thinner and a bit more powdery than the long-discontinued Matte2 formula, though it was more like that finish than the current, matte finish in the brand’s permament range of eyeshadows. They were easier and more forgiving to work with than a lot of MAC’s eyeshadows, so they were improved and a nice addition to the brand’s range (they’re also available as pan-only for less).

Supreme Harmony

Supreme Harmony is a very light, pinky-plum with subtle, warm undertones and cooler flecks of sparkle. It had semi-sheer color payoff, which was the result of a drier, more crumbly texture that had lots of fallout during application. This shade was only viable when applied with a dampened brush. It had fallout over the six hours it lasted for.

Formula Overview

$20.00/0.05 oz. – $400.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “12-hour wear” with “silky smooth glide” and a “wet-like metallic texture.” The pigmentation is supposed to have “one-swipe saturation,” and most of the shades had nearly opaque to opaque coverage but a couple were more semi-opaque and buildable in coverage. The texture was lightly creamy, dense, and physically thicker than the average powder eyeshadow, and I found the thickness made them a little hard to work with, especially using a dry brush.

I had the best luck getting smooth, even coverage that didn’t emphasize my lid texture with a lightly dampened brush or fingertips (though I preferred the precision a brush offered). Some shades looked more metallic and “molten” while others had a subdued sheen (which didn’t seem fitting with the “Dazzleshadow Extreme” name, and on that note, these were not chocked full of sparkle in most instances, like Dazzleshadows are). I had faint creasing beginning between eight and 10 hours with most shades, while the color would be still be 70-75% intact after 12-hours of wear.

Wish Me Luck

Wish Me Luck is a rich, golden bronze with strong, warm undertones and a smooth, pearly sheen. The eyeshadow had a smooth, moderately-dense, somewhat cream-like feel to the touch, which yielded opaque pigmentation. There were signs of fading present after eight hours of wear.
