MAC Double Feature Collection- Duos 1, 2, & 3

I’ve had these for about a month now, and completely forgot to post about them!

MAC has released some duo-shadow palettes that are appropriately named “Double Feature”. I have six of them to share with you, and this post will be Double Feature 1, 2, and 3!

Double Feature 1- a bright yellow-gold with a veluxe pearl finish, and a frosty red-based plum. Both have decent color payoff, and would be fun to play against each other as they are complimentary colors!

Double Feature 2: Veluxe Pearl lime, and a frosty silver-gray. The limey shade has great color payoff and reminds me of Chartreuse Pigment, although this may be a bit lighter. The gray is definitely one to pack on, as it swatches pretty sheer (I must have packed it on in this swatch, I just tried it again and it came off really light on my hand!)

Double Feature 3: A matte, mid-toned teal and a gray-brown satin. The teal is really nice, I want to play with it over a white eyeliner base to really make it pop! The brown is so-so, not overly impressive, but not necessarily terrible either.

 

The trouble with these is that if you really like one shade, not both, it’s a total ripoff, as each duo is $25. None of the shades shown here are absolutely terrible, but the more muted colors (dark gray in #2, brown in #3) have less color payoff than I’d like. Of the three, I think #3 may be my favorite, just for that teal. I wish the Lime in #2 was paired with the teal, that’d be perfect!

These are available from MAC Cosmetics August 4th (and are already available from Nordstrom).

    I love them!!! I wish they were slightly cheaper. Could you do a tutorial or a first impression with these, that way we know how they work?

    I checked out this article and the accompanying article, and most of the pots had at least one color that had me stoked, but the other making me feel very blah. Final decision, not worth the price. If it was like $10, then maybe :3

    I wish these were being sold individually because I’d LOVE to buy the teal and green. It’s not worth spending $50 for two shadows though.

    Okay, seriously, the word you want is comPLEmentary, NOT comPLImentary. I actually like duos 2 and 3, but I just can’t get excited about the first one. 3 is especially gorgeous, but teal and chocolate brown have always gone together well.
    Pretty expensive though-MAC is churning out way too many LE collections lately and they’re no longer feeling special or like any thought or time has really gone into the products. It’s no longer a big deal when a collection comes out and that’s a really sad thing. It used to be exciting!
