There is always a love/hate with me regarding the MAC Mineralize Eye Shadows. I think they are GORGEOUS, but not all are up to par on pigment.
On my last mall trip I went to the counter looking for Smutty Green. Basically I wanted it for the name, it just cracks me up because I have the humor of a child. They were sold out, but as I stood there swatching I fell in love with Sweet & Sour.
What the MAC website has to say about Mineralize Eye Shadow Duos:
Two coordinating shades baked together in a single pan. A superb way to experience Mineralize’s unique properties: exceptionally sheer and lightweight application, and easy, rich colour. Finishes include super-fine pearl that leave a soft dimensional shimmer on the skin.

Sweet & Sour (dirty gold with green and deep blue veining/warm gold) is a subtle green and gold mix that is a great product to use when you want to do a quick, but different easy eye look. The green is actually pretty pigmented, even when used dry (like in the swatch and EOTD), but there is a lot of fall out from this duo, even when you use it carefully.
This EOTD was my St. Patrick’s Day EOTD =) I started off with a thin layer of Urban Decay Primer Potion as a base. I then patted on two coats of the green side all over the lid and up through the crease. I took a blending brush and applied the gold side above the crease and up a bit, then using MAC Grain as a highlighter shade. The top liner is MAC Wholesome Fluidline, the bottom liner is Armani Antique Waterproof Eye Liner Pencil. The look is topped off with MAC Plushlash Mascara.
