  • "Mac eye shadows are very pigmented and long lasting. The colors are also very easy to blend to create the perfect look. Mac eye shadows are $15 which seems expensive but compared to other high end eye shadows they are on the cheaper side. I highly recommend Mac eye shadows and especially the shades Ricepaper and Jest.

MAC eyeshadows are very buttery, smooth, blendable, and pigmented. A good value for their price but still a little pricey in general. When I purchase a MAC eyeshadow I tend to think of it as an investment, I want to make sure I love the color first. Just to save money I prefer to use brands like colourpop which are equally blendable and pigmented but a little friendlier to the wallet.

I've used MAC eyeshadows since high school, before I even knew what primer was. They blend into the skin so well that they stay put and barely crease even without it. The pigments are pretty concentrated, so a little goes a long way. I love MAC products in general because they're high quality and I find them to always be worth the price.

Review for: Parfait Amour more...
MAC eyeshadows were my first prestige cosmetics purchase. Among the basic neutrals I had purchased, I decided to pick a shade outside of my comfort zone just for something fun and different. Parfait Amour was my wildcard. The low-res swatches I saw online circa 2006 just showed a very pretty pastel purple. What was in the pan was far more gorgeous than a photo could show.

This shade is a vibrant, Easter-egg purple in the pan, with a shimmer that ranged from violet to a cool-toned gold, giving it a depth that is pleasing to the eye. It applies the same way it appears, with a buttery feel and remarkable pigment. It’s simply beautiful. Considering I’d come from cheap, chalky drugstore eyeshadows, this shade in particular was revolutionary, personally speaking. I do not reach for it as often, but it’s still one of my favorites in my collection.

I used to be a MAC eyeshadow loyalist, but as time has gone on, I've been less and less impressed. Other brands, like ABH, Huda, and Urban Decay, are much better at blending and are far more creamy and buttery. Also, these aren't as pigmented as they could be. Overall, good shadow, but others are better.

Review for: Retrospeck more...
This is a very pretty shade. MAC eyeshadows are great products and resist creasing, etc. especially with a good primer. 4 starts because I wish it was slightly more pigmented - BUT it is definitely more pigmented than cheaper eyeshadows. I like this one best with 2-3 layers. Great product!

Soft brown is the perfect crease color. One of my go-to day looks is soft brown in the upper crease and satin taupe applied with a fluffy brush all over the lid, with shroom on the brow bone. It is a nice mid tone matte brown that would work on all different skin tones.

This eyeshadow comes in a variety of colors for whatever look you are going for. They go on smooth and blend perfectly. They last all day and do not seem to crease. I have been using this product for years and highly recommend it to anyone looking for that perfect eye.

Review for: Mulch more...
I have so many Mac eyeshadows. I have singles, I have singles that I have selected myself and put inside the custom pans. These are such beautiful shadows that don’t have fall out but do you have long staying power. Some of the best shadows on the market

I love MAC eyeshadow. I can also find brown shades that work for eyebrow powder. Check out their rewards program. When you bring back 6 empty containers (of any MAC products) for recycling, you get a free eye shadow or lipstick! What a great deal!
