I love MAC's duochromes eyeshadows and pigments. They have this amazing two colour quality so they come alive when paired over a dark base such as black gel liner.

Stars 'n Rockets was my first duochrome eyeshadow from MAC and since then I've been hooked. I constantly look for colours with this quality. To me, when you buy a duochrome eyeshadow or pigment, it's like you bought three colours in one as depending on the base, you can get various affects from it. For example, Blue Brown pigment on it's own it brown with blue flecks. When paired over a black (Blacktrack) or deep blue/teal base (Delft) it becomes this glowy blue with some brown flecks. When put on top of a purple base (NYX purple) it becomes this purpley blue colour with red flecks. Amazing, eh?

I have swatched all of the duochromes in my current collection. I would love to get more so if anyone know of more colours like these, please let me know :)

Here's a picture of everything together on top of Stila's Black Smudge Pot. As always, all my swatches are taken in sunlight on NW30 skin.
