MAC Eye Shadow Steamy : Review, Swatch, EOTD

If there is one eye color that I badly wanted to buy for myself it is MAC Humid. I did buy its dupe from INGLOT [Reviewed HERE] but never did my desire die. So whenever I go to MAC I make sure I try Humid once and ask the MUA for one but it was never in stock ! I will still be hunting for the shade and meanwhile Steamy was a shade suggested instead of Humid. There is no similarity between them other than they are green but still I love the shade :)


MAC describes Steamy as 'Bluish-Green with Gold Pearl' and the finish is 'Frost'. Though the shade is bluish green the shade leans more towards green. It also looks more turquoise or teal in different lighting and that makes the shade even more pretty. The formula is really smooth and buttery and that makes it so easy to work with. However among the other frosty shades I tried Cranberry was better than the others in terms of pigmentation. The pigmentation of Steamy is good as well if you do not compare it with any other finish or shades. Almost nil fall out and stays on my lids for good 5 hours.

  • The color is another pretty bluish green with frost finish.
  • The frosty finish makes the color so vibrant.
  • The color is easily buildable and looks good on warm skin tones.
  • There is almost no fall out.
  • Blends easily and easy to work with this color.
  • Stays on good 5 hours on my lids.
  • Really good pigmentation.

  • No Complaints !


The cost of MAC Eye Shadows are Rs.720 for 1.3 g [refill] and Rs.900 in pan. I guess they have increased their price by now :(

EOTD - MAC Steamy and MAC Wood Winked

I did an EOTD with similar colors but with INGLOT eye shadows and you can see the same HERE.


I shouldn't have tried MAC eye shadows ! Having tried these I couldn't go back and yes it is like an addiction now. I feel like trying more colors but this time no green, gold or copper but something different and something summery too :D Already I have a huge list of eye shadows to buy and I might a pick a few of them. Steamy is a pretty green shade, pick it up if you love greens, blues or teals and you would never complain.
