I finally B2M'd some empties and picked up both Parfait Amour and Club shadows from MAC. I was thrilled, since I've been eyeing these shadows for quite some time.
Club is a satin finish, so it has a beautiful sheen without any sort of glittery shimmery weirdness. The amazing thing about this shadow is how unique the color is...it's a warm brown when you swatch it, but depending on the lighting and what you pair it with you can bring out this wonderful green/teal color. I absolutely adore the way it looks over a black base, such as NYX's jumbo pencil in black bean. The resulting green shine reminds me of those japanese beetles and their highly reflective and colorful appearance.
The second shadow I purchased is Parfait Amour. Although this is a frost finish, it is not overly shiny or glittery. When swatched next to Club, you can see that the finish is quite similar. This is a very blue purple shade. For all you girls out there who are afraid of wearing blue shadows, try using something similar to Parfait Amour: the purple makes it more wearable than straight up blue. It also has a sort of pink pearly shine that comes out depending on the lighting. Like Club, it looks fantastic of a black base.
Here are some swatches of both of these shadows.

I hope this encourages somebody to pick up one or both of these MAC shadows! They are both very unique and exciting to play with :)
