Jealousy Wakes Swatches: MAC Blogger Collection

Long time no speak ;) I've been well, just tryna get my life together and will myself to post more often. As most of you know MAC came out with a Blogger's Collection that consists of 5 lipglasses and 4 eyeshadows from various bloggers that were chosen out of many. Well today, one part of my shipment arrived and it was Christine's (Temptalia) Jealousy Wakes eyeshadow. I was extremely excited as this was the 2nd most wanted thing on my list from the collection, my first being All of My Purple Life lipglass, and I also ordered Hocus Pocus in a seperate shipment that should arrive soon as well. This eyeshadow quickly sold out from off the website (Surprise surprise! lol) but it may be available again at some point over the course of the 6 weeks the collection is available so I wanted to give swatches!

Jealousy Wakes is extremely pigmented and a beautiful color, however (yeaaaaa yall knew this was coming) I am extremely disappointed with the actual color. I was expecting some fantastic looking green similar to the pot, but once swatched/worn it comes off more blue than anything. I mean its called jealousy wakes dammit I feel like such a bomb title deserves an amazing OBVIOUS green not a blue that kinda looks green every now and then. WHOMP WHOMP. Here are the swatches...

 With that being said I still look forward to doing an actual full application with this color to see if it makes me a believer. I personally really enjoyed and appreciated the immense amount of background theory and effort that the bloggers put into developing their own product and I hope I am more pleased when my other purchases arrive so look out for updates :) Did you loves get anything from this collection? Do you think I'm absolutely crazy and love this shade of blue maybe green? LMK! lol




  1. Try it with a black base for a different result, maybe NYX Black Bean or Mac Blackground PP. I've always felt purples, greens and blues should be worn with a darker base for a poppin effect.

  2. The swatch on the right IS with NYX black bean underneath because I thought the same thing. I was surprised when they swatched so similarly ... I honestly don't dig the color I guess :/

  3. hi! If someone disappointed with this eyeshadow wants to sell it can contact me through my blog (there is also my email) I'm italian and I'm looking for this eyeshadow, thanks ^^

  4. This is a fantastic color!! I really like it!! Do you think if you wear it over the green paint pot it would make it pop more like what you are looking for? I am gonna go and purchase this!! You are so pretty! Kiah

  5. I'm not sure, perhaps I will but I think its really just a blue shadow on my skin tone lol Thank you for the comment :)


a comment for me? :)
