40 Days and 40 Nights of Beauty Cult Classics
Day 33, MAC's Parrot Eyeshadow
You can not have a beauty cult classic project and not include the famous MAC Parrot.
Parrot is a legend among beauty products.
This is a tealish eyeshadow that has managed to sell out twice and fetch three figures on Ebay. Patti aka Cavewoman had to swap a boatload of products to gift me Parrot. I joke that she had to swap a grandchild.
Parrot is not exactly a neutral or safe color.
It is a rich peacock blue.
A teal shade with oomph.
Parrot is surprisingly workable for all it's intensity and power. It looks amazing with browns, golds and greens. I generally use it as a crease shade or as a liner.
Many Specktra and MUA members have created looks that are just spellbinding.
I am constantly amazed at it's beauty and versatility.
The texture and pigment power is above average.
It has a velvet-like feel.
MAC relaunched Parrot in the Originals collection. My local MAC counter quickly sold out of it. So far I have not spotted anyone in Youngstown sporting this eyeshadow. I have a horrible habit of making a scene when someone is wearing Parrot. I make a fuss worthy of the Beatles. I gush and ask 1000 questions.
Parrot just makes me lose my mind.
There are many dupes of Parrot. I own Shu Uemura's ME Blue 638. This is a fairly close shade but lacks Parrot's glow.
Tell me what you think of Parrot in the comments. Also list any dupes that come to mind.
