Spotlight On: MAC Juxt

Finish: Satin / Bright green with gold pearl

Juxt is a light green shade with a decent amount of pigmentation. There are some people who feel this color isn’t as bright as it appears in the pan, but the key is to use a really good base before applying to bring out its intensity. This color adds a bright pop of color and is ideal when used to accent certain areas of the eye, especially the inner half of the lid. It pairs well with other greens (preferably darker shades), browns, pinks and purples. Using this color on blue, brown and yes, even green eyes will instantly make them come to life. If you have green eyes, you can wear lighter greens like Juxt.

Note: Juxt has been discontinued by MAC; a close dupe is MakeupGeek’s Shimmermint.

  1. To my amazement, Juxt is one of the colours showing in the “Good-byes” section of MAC’s Canadian website. Shimmermoss is also listed there and so are the Studio Sculpt concealers (that doesn’t surprise me as it’s probably the worst concealer for the undereye area that I have ever used). So I’m thinking if you love Juxt or Shimmermoss, now’s the time to stock up!

    1. Yeah, saw those, Mariella. I was surprised to see them go, but no great loss for me (thankfully!). 😉 The one I’m disappointed about seeing discontinued is actually Bisque – an awesome matte shade!

      1. Yes, I was surprised to see that Bisque was also on its way out, and the same with Hush (I don’t have either of them – how many neutral beigey highlighty type shades does one woman need…DON’T answer that!!) – it was quite surprising.

    1. Ya never can tell! With an awesome base and packing the color on, it just might! I find sometimes using NYX’s Jumbo Pencil in ‘Milk’ as a base over my regular base sometimes helps to make colors like this more vibrant.

  2. Hi Zabrena, for juxt post, there are several images missing, do you think you can update it? Just bought Juxt and want to see how i can pair it. 🙂

    1. Hi Bonita!
      Whoops! One of those I seem to have forgotten about! Sorry about that! I’ll see if I can update it today or this week. Thanks for catching that! 🙂

  3. The newer looks are beautiful! When I was trying out look 2, with the teal pigment ,it didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to. Definitely not like yours! When I tried the look it made me realize how really talented you are! and I’m not just saying that. 🙂 You have major skills girl! Never forget that. 🙂 Anyway, when you do look 2, do you use the teal first in the corners or Juxt in the middle first? It’s a really pretty look , but you really have to be careful with the teal pigment. A little goes a long way! When I did the look I used a little Steamy over the teal and that was pretty. I don’t know. For some reason I’m not doing something right. Maybe you could do a tutorial on the look. Thanks for all your help Zabrena! 🙂

    1. Awww! I’m sure you’re being too hard on yourself, Karah! For that look, I apply Teal first to the inner and outer third of the eye and then Juxt to the middle. It makes it a LOT easier to blend back into Teal on both sides. Oh man, you aren’t kidding! Teal is SUPER pigmented! I’ll keep a tutorial in mind of it for you!

  4. Look #4 is simply amazing! I don’t have Juxt and I see it’s been discontinued. What would you suggest as a substitute from the Mac range?

    1. Hi! Thanks for asking! Unfortunately, there isn’t anything in the perm collection that compares well to Juxt. If you happened to grab Urban Decay’s Theodora palette, the lighter side of the eyeshadow ‘Jealous’ is an exact dupe for Juxt, but that’s the only one I’ve run across that comes even remotely close to it. You could try substituting with something like Lucky Green in its place, with just a lighter application, but it’s not an exact dupe for Juxt. My apologies!

  5. This is such a pretty green. I also love Chartreuse Pigment but have no clue what to do with it, any ideas please? Thank you

  6. Juxt (just in the pro pan refill) is in the “good byes” section of MAC’s website, at least in Canada, so if anyone really wants to get this, they’d better act FAST (I’ve hmm’d and haa’d about it but decided to make do with a green from WnW Comfort Zone, since I have really limited need for a shade like this).
