  • "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 my go to. The colors are so pigmented and build beautifully. They are very easy to blend and easy to work with if you are a beginner with makeup or a pro. They are on the more pricy side but if your willing to splurge a little you will definitely not be disappointed. I’ve purchased many of these shadows and have never been let down. MAC products never disappoint!!

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.

Review for: Gesso more...
My favorite brand and the highlighting of the lighter colors always is terrific. At 50+ my lids are hiding a bit more and I live the lighter color under the brow to give a lift as well as a touch on the inner corner to brighten my blue eyes. Great rich pigment and a value as it lasts so long.

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.

I love that I can customize my own pallet with Matt shimmers sat in with the Mac eyeshadows. Their individual pans are awesome they are very good in a bowl and no patchiness I will buy again once I hit pan on any of them that I do it pan on

What I like the most about this eyeshadow is that you can buy just one at a time. Sometimes when you buy a pallet you end up with more than a couple that you don’t like and that is a complete waste of money. But with this eyeshadow you can fall in love with the color, and only have to buy that color. It makes it really easy to go back into the store and buy a new one rather than having to find a pallet that include something that you want. The color is very bland a bowl and buildable. I have at least a dozen of these at home. And it’s very easy to just throw in a tiny make up bag and keep in your purse.

I’ve always been a huge fan of MAC eyeshadows. They are super pigmented and they just wear really well, especially with some primer and a setting spray. I have a few single MAC eyeshadows in my current rotation, and a couple of smaller 4 color palettes too. They are all great. In these pics I’m wearing the color Bravado. It held up all day long with no creasing. I also like how well it blends with other colors.

Mac has great quality eyeshadows for a great price,I purchased several single eyeshadows and created my own palette. I havebt come across a shade that didn't work for me yet. I would most definitely purchase more shades.

Review for: Soft Brown more...
I purchased Soft Brown after seeing a YouTuber use it in a number of her eye looks. It was one of my first MAC purchases. The color is a nice warm brown matte. It's not chalky or dusty and does not have a lot of kick up or fall out. It's a nice transition or outer corner color.  I have used this all over the lid with a pop of gold shadow in the center. This is a color that would look good on all skin tones and a good basic color to have in any collection. I recommend it and may purchase it again whenever I finish the product.
