Rediscovering: Club Eyeshadow from MAC

Ever purchase a product (skincare, cosmetics, perfume, etc), use it maybe once, then you forget about it or just don't find yourself reaching for it as often as you do other products?

That's what happened when I purchase the MAC eyeshadow in Club ages ago (2 years ago maybe). I used it once, and ever since it's just been sitting in the back of the storage drawer. Back then I was always trying to go for the neutral look when it came to eye make up that I just couldn't see myself using it. Yes, back then question came to mind as to why I even purchased this as well. Instead of taking it back, I decided to keep it, just in case on day I could find a use for it. And guess what?
Last Sunday, while digging around in the drawer, I came across it. Figured why not. Honestly, I don't know why I wasn't using it more often! What on earth was I thinking 2 years ago?!

If you're unfamiliar with Club, this is a duo-chrome eyeshadow with a satin finish. The main base of this eye shadow is a red-brown with a green/teal shimmer. Wearing this without a base or using a natural base (eyelid primer), then the red-brown is more dominate than the green. If you use a dark base, or I've found if you use a base that remains a bit tacky, that gorgeous duo-chrome effect comes through. More so with a dark base though.
I've been wearing Club during the work week without a dark base. Then yesterday, being I was going into work at noon, I had a bit more time to play around with it. I used a dark base all over the lid (save for the inner corners) and along the lower lash line. I only went to the crease though with the base, because I wanted that red-brown to show above that (hopefully that makes sense).

After being at work for 9 hours.
