Whilst I don't really rate MAC lipsticks as being some of the best in the beauty world, I adore their eyeshadows!I usually pick up the pans, not just because they are slightly cheaper but I like to keep them together in my palette. Now and again I will buy one from a limited edition collection if it catches my eye but my favourites are from MAC's permanent line.
My favourites include satin taupe, which is a beautiful taupe with brown/purple undertones and a frost finish. Its the softest and most pigmented of all the MAC shadows I own. It looks perfect blended in the crease or just worn on its own. This is definitely the product that shows MAC at its best.
Another favourite is all that glitters, a veluxe pearl finish I would describe as a champagne beige.Again its very soft and pigmented. I think this is one of those shades that can really make your eyes 'pop', I don't really like using that word but that's kinda what it does. Even though its shimmery, the texture is really smooth and super easy to blend.
An eyeshadow, I really feel is underrated is era, a satin cool toned taupe, although its described as a golden beige by MAC. Its very flattering on my skin tone and a great everyday shade. It looks perfect paired with any other neutral shade or even something completely different like a navy, purple or green.
Speaking of green shadows, two of my all time favourite greens are MAC's steamy and sumptuous olive. Steamy is a green/blue frost with gold pearl. I don't generally wear a lot of brights but I love this shade the texture is perfect and easy to blend. I like to use it with a damp liner brush and work it into my lower lash line, which looks really beautiful paired with neutral shades.
Sumptuous olive (I've spelt it wrong in the photos) is an olive with gold undertones in a veluxe pearl finish. I love this shade, its so subtle and versatile. It can be paired with so many other shades and is one of those colours that will flatter most eyes.
Do you have any of these?
