Hawkins Class of 1986

MAC Hawkins Class of 1986 Eyeshadow x 8 Palette ($45.00 for 0.49 oz.) is a newer, limited edition palette that contains three matte shades and five shimmer shades. Unfortunately, the shimmer formula was rather thick and firmer, which made it hard to apply onto the lid and many of them seemed to lose their shimmer/shine within minutes of application. The mattes were soft, blendable, albeit a touch powdery at times.

Ingredients

Dingus

Dingus is a brighter, yellowy gold with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. I found that the product looked metallic, but the finish seemed prone to fading down to something more like a satin or pearl finish within a few minutes.

  • Opaque color coverage
  • Moderately dense, somewhat thick texture that was stiffer
  • Doesn’t pick up evenly with brush, best applied with fingertips
  • Harder to blend edges of darker shades due to texture
  • Average-wearing (seven to eight hours of wear, prone to fading)

Formula Overview

$20.00/0.05 oz. – $400.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “12-hour wear” with “silky smooth glide” and a “wet-like metallic texture.” The pigmentation is supposed to have “one-swipe saturation,” and most of the shades had nearly opaque to opaque coverage but a couple were more semi-opaque and buildable in coverage. The texture was lightly creamy, dense, and physically thicker than the average powder eyeshadow, and I found the thickness made them a little hard to work with, especially using a dry brush.

I had the best luck getting smooth, even coverage that didn’t emphasize my lid texture with a lightly dampened brush or fingertips (though I preferred the precision a brush offered). Some shades looked more metallic and “molten” while others had a subdued sheen (which didn’t seem fitting with the “Dazzleshadow Extreme” name, and on that note, these were not chocked full of sparkle in most instances, like Dazzleshadows are). I had faint creasing beginning between eight and 10 hours with most shades, while the color would be still be 70-75% intact after 12-hours of wear.

Starcourt Mall

Starcourt Mall is a light-medium pink with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish.

  • Semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation
  • Soft, finely-milled consistency, lightly powdery
  • Blendable, easy to work with
  • Long-wearing (eight hours on average for this formula)

Formula Overview

Formula Overview

$20.00/0.05 oz. – $400.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “pillow-soft, matte colour” that is “highly blendable” with “unbelievable slip” that has “stay-true colour” that doesn’t fade, crease, or dry out the lids. The majority of the shades were pigmented, though a few were more semi-opaque and buildable.

The texture was soft, smooth, and slightly powdery in the pan–softer and more yielding than the standard MAC matte eyeshadow–but had more glide for better adhesion and blendability on bare skin. The eyeshadows stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

They’re thinner and a bit more powdery than the long-discontinued Matte2 formula, though it was more like that finish than the current, matte finish in the brand’s permament range of eyeshadows. They were easier and more forgiving to work with than a lot of MAC’s eyeshadows, so they were improved and a nice addition to the brand’s range (they’re also available as pan-only for less).
