MAC Eye shadow - Expensive Pink

Expensive pink has been an eye shadow that has been on my list for a couple of months now. And since I'm building my pinks, I finally decided this is the perfect time to get this color. When I went to the MAC Glorietta store, I originally wanted an orange eye shadow. But since there was no stock of orange (well its a pro product so PI doesn't carry it) or off the page (I remember the time the last piece was bought my my friend! :( ) I asked Gee Vee for an alternative.

He gave me the perfect alternative, Expensive Pink. And only then, when he handed me the eye shadow and I swatched it did i remember that once on the lids, expensive pink turns into a coral-orangey color with a pink undertone. Now that sounds very odd but when you see it, you'll get it hehe.

Expensive Pink has a Veluxe Pearl finish which explains the illusion of an orangey-coral color.

Here's what it looks like:

From the swatch, you can see that it really isn't all pink but kind of turns coral-orange. It is a beautiful color and the name "Expensive Pink" is the best definition of the color. :) On that note, I really love how MAC names their eye shadows, their so witty and creative. :) hehe Anyway, here's a rundown on the shadow.

Price: PHP870

Place bought: MAC Glorietta
