MAC “Seedy Pearl”- eye shadow- Review and Swatches.

MAC “Seedy Pearl”- eye shadow- Review and Swatches.



I did some random MAC eyeshadow haul couple of months back; I went to store and asked MUA to pick me few neutral and colourful subtle shades. The MAC MUA picked –Seedy Pearl for me along with other few shades, she tried it on my lids and I fall in love how it looked on my eyelid. My eyelids are slightly darker than my skin and I wasn’t sure if this shade would look good on me or even show up on me, but to my surprise it is really pretty.

What MAC Claims: Highly-pigmented powder. Applies evenly, blends well.


Price: 900 INR for 1.5 g / .05 oz


MAC Seedy Pearl is very hard to describe it is definitely a duo-chrome pinky-purple with an iridescent frost finish. The shade looks different on different skintones, the shade is beautiful on its own and reflects pink-purple pearls. I am recently hoarding MAC eyeshadows for their qualities and long wearing. MAC Seedy Pearl is a very unique shade on its own, although it also looks great when paired purples, blues, pinks or brown. It is very easy to apply and blends well however the only issue I get when applied too much, it tends to gives flaky appearances. I love wearing it along with a darker outer edge for a fresh and clean look.


The pigmentation is moderate; on our Asian skin tone it does give sheer wash of colour unless applied heavily. The shade last on me for more than 6-7 hours with primer, the formula is quite stiff in pan although it has creamy texture.


What I like about MAC “Seedy Pearl”- eye shadow:


  • The soft and smooth texture.
  • It is very unique shade with pink –purple- lilac iridescent pearls.
  • The shade suits all skin tones, light- medium- dark.
  • Can be used alone i.e overall lid colour or pair with any purple and blue or brown family.
  • No fall out at all, easily blendable, smooth texture.
  • Very appropriate for daily use OR day time wear.
  • It doesn’t creases on my dry-normal eyelids, although for oily skin ladies primer is must.
  • Compliments all skintones, brown eyes, blue eyes, green eyes etc.
  • Never irritated my eyes.
  • Long wearing and blendable formula.



What I don’t like about MAC “Seedy Pearl”- eye shadow:


  • The refills cost 900 INR :O which is really insane.
  • I have heard MAC discontinued this shade, DUH! Please check in stores if they have few pieces left.


Rating: 4/5.

MAC Seedy Pearls Eyeshadow-2

I love using Seedy pearl all over my lid for that fresh clean everyday look. It beautiful although in pan and swatch doesn’t do justice. I would definitely re-purchase the shade if my nearest Mac store has it.
