Known Dupes: Shimmermoss, UD Shattered
Steamy is a teal-green shade with high pigmentation due to the Frost formula. To get the most out of this color, I highly recommend using a primer on the lid before application (I use Too Faced Eyeshadow Insurance); otherwise, the full effect of this color will not appear. When I did the swatch on my hand for this post, I couldn’t get it to show up on its own. Once I dabbed a little bit of primer onto my hand as the base, the color instantly came alive. MAC’s arsenal of shades has a twin of Steamy in Shimmermoss, although Steamy is more for warm complexions and has more green than blue from what I can see. I love this color, and even though blues and greens are a little frightening, I can honestly say Steamy is one of the best eyeshadows I own!
