Trax is one of Mac’s unique eye shadows. I’m sure Urban Decay has something comparable but I’m in love with this colour and the sheen.
Trax is a yellow based medium purple but with gold microshimmer. The shimmer is a bit chunkier than usual and not so subtle when you use it. It gives a lovely duochrome sort of effect when you wear it on lids. Part purple, part gold and part browny purple.
It goes on the lid very smoothly. However, this isn’t the most pigmented shade. I think it works far better when you use can eye base or primer underneath. When compared to other good Mac eyeshadows, pigmentation is where this falls short.
The colour blends well. You can use this for so many looks with browns, taupe, light pinks, gold etc. I really should do a EOTD with this!
It lasts better with primer but generally it gives good 6-7 hours of wear and there’s no fallout from the shimmer. If you are venturing out into more coloured eye shadows, this is a good place to start. It goes very well with neutral shades and also other contrasting shades like greens and yellows.
You get 1.5 g of product if you get the refill pan and it costs Rs. 720, I think.
