Mac Water Mineralize Eyeshadow Swatch & Review: (Heavenly Creatures )

If you grew up in the nineties, Captain Planet and his Planeteers were probably your first introduction to saving the environment! Each Planeteer signified Earth, Fire, Wind, Water and Heart and i cant help but think Mac Water Mineralize Eyeshadow would have been the perfect logo for em ! I can definitely see bits of Earth, Wind and Water in it and to top it all off i heart it ! (Psst: Raise your hands eyeshadows, if you still remember the Captain Planet theme song. ) .

The thing about these  mineralize eyeshadows is..its so easy to have an ‘Óooh Shiny’ moment with them you can kind of get hypnotized with the swirls of colors! This one called Water is a bright, shimmery mint green with swirls of rich canary yellow, and rich velvety midnight blue. The yellow and the mint kind of combine to give it a rather chartreusey-lime green look, but when used them seperately they retain the colors.


When swirled together- this is what it looks like !

You can use these mineralize eyeshadows dry or wet, and i MUCH prefer these wet. I thought water significantly improved in pigmentation when it was wet. When dry it had okay pigmentation but it became opaque when wet. The texture was nice and smooth either ways, but the fallout which was a bit of an issue when dry, dissapeared when wet.  Water has tiny silver shimmer specks in it, which give the shadow an ultra shimmery look when applied. If you like shimmery eyeshadows you are likely to love water, but personally im more of a sheen girl.These last a pretty long time even without a primer and they dont crease on me which is half a miracle! I think these are very handy when travelling because you can use three colors in one- you dont need to carry extra shadows to create a cohesive look.

Sorry for the bad picture. Thats the green part of mac eyeshadow on the lids, with yellow in the centre and the blue swirl used in the outer corner.

Verdict: A-( Wet ), B  ( Dry)

Price: Rs 1350/-

Recommendation: Mac Water Eyeshadow is a swirl of shimmery green, lemon yellow and a rich velvety blue. its a great festive eyeshadow to have because you can create green/blue eyelooks within minutes and without any other eyeshadow. Mac Mineralize eyeshadows work best when wet, because the pigmentation is pretty poor when dry and water is no different- the opacity and the fallout issues improve by miles with a little water on water !!

 (Psst: Captain Planet, Hes the hero..gonna take pollution down to zero ! Hes the Power Personified, and hes fighting on the planet siiiideee…Hehe. Wheeler was my fav. Yours?)

I luved the shade! but I am not sure I will be using it much! like subtle shades more, as I am more of a lip person!

Captain planet was one of my favorite shows. I used to pretend even I have some sort of a magic ring. The eye shadow is nice, wish it were more pigmented because it is pretty expensive

My fav was Gaia, (the mother?) person. She had the most soothing voice.
And this swirly little thing looks so pretty but with my OCD I just wouldn’t feel like mixing up ’em colors!

I also got this one,but the swirls are too mesmerising to ruin,I have been on the fence whether to actually use it for an EOTD or keep it as a collectible :P
Lolz silly me

Hi Mehak! I recently came across a set of MAC eyeshadows only for Rs. 269/- on ebay. My knowledge of make up is zilch. Here is the link:

Do you think this is genuine?


mehak September 24, 2012 at 5:03 pm

That looks like a definite fake to me!!!!
I dont remember mac coming out with a pallette that looks like that…plus as far as i know, it doesnt make any 12 eyeshadow palletes.. It also never puts pplicators in eyeshadow pallettes. Plus every mac pallette/shadow has a unique name that is stuck on thw box…i dont see any here. Plus each mac shadow costs 600 bucks at the minimum without a casing so getting all tht for 269 definitely means it some cheap stuff with a mac label on it!


Gunjan September 24, 2012 at 5:07 pm

Yeah.. even I thought so! So, I asked the expert. The seller however claims it to be an original MAC product! LOL!!! :D


NeZ September 24, 2012 at 10:22 pm

Gorgeous! Looking at the eyeshadow I was like- ummm.. Interesting.? Lol. But your eyes look stunning. Love it!


Richa Saxena September 24, 2012 at 10:55 pm

Wow! The eyeshadow looks amazing…And the eye look is absolutely stunning!
