Spotlight On: MAC Fiction

fictionFinish: Frost / Muted green shimmer

Known dupes: Greensmoke

I normally would not feature a limited edition eyeshadow, simply because if someone didn’t get the opportunity to get it, then the post really wouldn’t serve a great purpose. However, due to Fiction being an identical dupe in color (not in finish) to Greensmoke, you can also substitute Greensmoke in any of these looks if you don’t have Fiction. You’re also welcome to refer to the Greensmoke posting here if you want more ways to wear this eyeshadow. Hands down, I am madly in love with this eyeshadow and it is everything I wanted out of Greensmoke; same color, better finish! This is one of your more muted greens, so it is a great neutral green eyeshadow for everyday wear. It pairs beautifully with a variety of other greens, oranges, golds and pinks.

*Note: As of today’s posting, Fiction is still available on MAC’s website! If you like the combos in this post, get it while you can!

Look #1 – see the full face here!

MAC eyeshadows used:

  • Fiction (inner half of lid and lower lashline)
  • Brun (outer half of lid) – for a darker look, you could also apply a black eyeshadow here!
  • Outre LE (crease) – you can also use MAC Soba, MUG Chickadee, or MAC Soft Brown
  • Blanc Type (blend out harsh edges of Outre)

  1. HI Z
    I’M so glad you made that commit about using LE shadows I hate to see people post eyeshadow combos using LE eyeshadows. And especially the ones that are posted with no dupe just in case you dont have that eyeshadow. Thats why I love your site and your youtube channel. By the way these combos are amazing as uaual.

    1. I completely agree, Paris! 🙂 That was one of the hugely frustrating things for me before I started the website; I would constantly see these looks being done with LE shades with no dupe given and then you’re left wondering … well, how do I create it? What’s the point of the look? I feel ya! 😉 Thank you for the compliments on the looks!

  2. The good news is that Fiction is still available (and it was relaunched at least 2 months ago). That’s more than you can say about many MAC LE products (like the shadows from Alluring Aquatics, for example, which sold out in no time flat). I don’t know if it’s because there wasn’t a lot of hoopla or what but it seems that the shadows from that re-promote (Diesel and several others) are still available.

  3. Okay, this is driving me a bit nuts! I know we had a discussion fairly recently about Pastorale (which I don’t own and really love the look of) and UD Money being a possible dupe (or did I dream all of this) and, of course, now I cannot find this anywhere. Did we actually discuss this, Zabrena? Does it ring any bells with you? And is Money a reasonable dupe for Pastorale?

  4. I got this today. Can’t wait to use it!!! I’m going to try either look 7 or 9 of Greensmoke tomorrow. It is beautiful
