  • "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.

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: 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.

It's a generic category so I can safely say that with the hundreds of shades in over a dozen different finishes there are many MAC eye shadows I own and adore. They're all pigmented, easy to blend and apply and for a prestige brand they keep their cost below the others.
***Another AWESOME MAC FACT: Keep your empty plastic and metal containers (think #MACLipstick #MACEyeshadow #MACLipglass etc) and when you get 7 you can take them to a MAC counter or mail them in via their website for a FREE LIPSTICK of your choice!!!

This is the Mac teal appeal sample eyeshadow I was gifted, and I love it! The color is so fun and I love how shimmery and pigmented it is. The swatch is a one swipe using my finger, and while using a wetted brush it gets even brighter, I’m a big fan of the Mac eyeshadow formula.

Review for: Vapour more...
I had really high hopes when it came to M.A.C Cosmetics Eyeshadow. My expectations were met with this eyeshadow. I really love how many shades they offer and that I can buy them individually. This eyeshadow was long lasting and stayed in place. I would love to add more Mac products to my collection.

So, this was my first shadow I purchased through M.A.C and I must say it is my favorite! When I am looking to do a simple everyday look this is my go to! It last without shadow primer and it last even longer with. This is a great transitional shadow as well! Very pigmented and highly recommended.

Sadly Mac has always been hit or miss with me. They were my first eyeshadow purchase so I had no real idea of quality but for 12 bucks a pop I learned fast. I do have some favorites but I can definitely dupe them now. Either way I wouldn’t discredit their talents Because they do have some gorgeous shades!

Palettes, singles, to customize palettes I own them all!MAC eye shadows are all phenomenal! I work in the medical field I like for my smear shadow to last throughout my entire shift and all of the MAC eyeshadows I own so! I can even take a nap wake up and my eyeshadows still look fabulous!

Review for: Gesso more...
Gesso is one of the whitest white eyeshadows i have found, Print is a wonderful neutral grey that pairs with it great. this product is awesome for when i wear matte eyeshadow looks. i bought this at MAC Lancaster PA and it really pops especially when i use a white base cream or even over my concealer. this product is also a great deal and you can save $12 on a mac eyeshadow single by buying it without all of the wasteful plastic packaging. i have brown eyes and if i ever want a little bit of drama without pulling out all of the shimmer i will use these. they blend well and dont have much fall out.

Review for: Bronze more...
This eyeshadow is SO pigmented and looks beautiful in. There's little to no fallout and it looks great blended or on its own. The bronze color is vibrant. This eyeshadow lasts forever. I've had it for at least a few years and I've only used about half of it even though I use it often.
