MAC describes Romp as ‘Chocolate laced with gold’. Its a frost is discontinued now..

MRP: Rs.720/- for refill, Rs.900/- for single pan

I would say its a medium dark golden brown…and love using it on lids..since it has shimmer, I do not like it on crease…a little deeper matte brown in crease with this on lid looks nice..

It applies smoothly, evenly and goes well with oranges and other deeper brown makes a nice lid color..

Highly pigmented, smooth textured and blends well.

This shade is quite easy to work with..even for a newbie..and pairs well with Indian wear too.

1. Highly pigmented.
2. Easy to work with.
3. Blends well.
4. A nice neutral golden brown and works well for all skin tones.
5. Makes a good lid color.
6. Goes well with Indian wear.
7. Satin smooth texture.
8. Stays well for 6-7 hours even without a base.


1. Expensive as all MAC is.
2. Discontinued now.

No other cons as such..I love the shade, texture, pigmentation, staying power..and it is one neutral shadow that would look good on all skin tones..and work with Indian wear too. Highly recommended. This also is my first MAC eyeshadow :)

Since it is discontinued now, you can check out Tempting which is quite quite similar but is Lustre Finish.


Quality: 4.5/5
Value for money: 4/5
Availability: 4/5

Overall Rating: 4.25/5

Would I buy it again: Discontinued..might check out Tempting if required.
