MAC Eye Shadow Parfait Amour : Photos, Review, Swatch, EOTD

After taking a break for a month, here I am with another MAC eye shadow review and EOTD. Yes, my eye brows are back to normal after the drastic mess up by a bad beautician a couple of months back. Forgive my tired eyes in the pics as I am running around for my daughter's school where in she is still not comfortable and everyday a new surprise/shock waits for me ! Coming back to the post, Parfait Amour was never on my shopping list but as you know the MAC here has a pathetic stock and I have to pick from what they have and not what I want actually !!


Description

MAC describes Parfair Amour as "Blue-Violet with Shimmer" and the finish is 'Frost'. Unlike the previous eye shadows I tried from MAC, this one is not so intensely pigmented and I can't use this shade without a base. The color looks much paler than it looks in the pan. It has a very light tinge of pink shimmers which is not very obvious.  Also, this shade is a bit hard to work with as blending needs a bit more effort. MAC as always describes the shade perfectly, the shade is a bluish purple shade with subtle shimmers. I have used this along with INGLOT 439 in the corners and crease for the EOTD below.




Likes
  • Parfait Amour is pretty bluish purple shade.
  • Very light shade that can be easily worn even during the day.
  • When worn with a good base the color looks really pretty.
  • Texture is soft and smooth like all other MAC eye shadows.
  • It stays on my lids for 4 hours and fades after that.
  • Shimmers are very subtle.

Dislikes
  • Not very pigmented and thus difficult to work with.
  • Not very easy to blend.
  • Definitely need a good base to show the color as it is very light when compared to the color in the pan.

 

Price

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 :(


Dark Purple in the crease and corners are INGLOT 439 and MAC Parfait Amour on the lids.


Verdict

Parfait Amour is definitely a pretty color and if you have the patience to play with it and make it work then get it. Though I don't regret my purchase I wish I got other similar colors that has better color pay off. In the EOTD pic above the color looks more bright and it is because of the INGLOT eye shadow I have used and that takes all the credit. Will do a comparison post tomorrow to show the difference between the two colors. If you are a purple lover and you have a good eye shadow base then try this shade with a base and then buy !
