Known Dupes: Peppier
If it is one eyeshadow I have received the most requests to do a Spotlight post for, it’s definitely Paradisco. This shade was actually in my first huge MAC eyeshadow haul when I was first getting into MAC and I absolutely despised it. I quickly swapped it away and then it was sent to me by a lovely subscriber recently (thank you, Lynn!), so I thought I’d give it another go. Either time has rounded out my rough edges or my tendency to quickly dismiss eyeshadows is waning because I REALLY like Paradisco, especially after sitting down to do these looks for it. (I still can’t figure out what possessed me to swap this away!) This shade is highly pigmented but requires a really great base and a couple layers to achieve that perfect wash of pinky orange, ideal for blue and green eyes. Excellent in terms of blendability, I have come to love Paradisco afterall.
