Illusionary/Burning Ambition

This is another of the new MES shadow duos from the MAC Mineralize line. Love this one ... though I do have to say it is completely dupable. The gold side is almost exactly like BEs White Gold and the brown side is really close to Twig, though it is more sparkly. Again ... I love how well these blend together, and am just thrilled so far with everything I got in that haul. And you gotta love the dazzleglasses!
