Cult-favorite MAC products and their variety in make-up line make it stand out in the crowd. A glimpse of its collection and arrays of colors are breathtaking, and simply molding us to “want more”. However, a few single eyeshadows are indeed recommendable if decide to splurge on them.
I am a big fan of MAC and I would like to buy everything if I could. But that’s quite not possible. But I am glad to share my viewpoint on the single shadows that I own. I hope it will help some of you to decide if MAC single shadows are really worth splurging on.
In MAC, my foundation shade is NC 35 ( recently recommended by MAC artist). Just for your reference so that it will help you to understand the shade. Well, I am going to emphasize the color than its texture. I believe these eyeshadows will suit almost all skin tones.
From Left Bronze, Sable, Honey Lust, Antiqued and Woodwincked
MAC Woodwinked – Veluxe pearl finish
Mac described it as a Warm antique gold. A very beautiful eye shadow that works like a magic and gives a subtle look. I would say it is warm with a tad bit of rustic gold. It is pigmented shadow and swipes across the lead easily. A single shadow is a solo warrior and works like a magic. My go-to eyeshadow and hooked to it forever. Your daylight look is ready in no time. Give it a try.
MAC Sable – Frost finish
It is described as a Gold-plum w/bronze pearl eye shadow on the MAC website. A great combination of plum with bronze, all-day wearable. However, it can be your savior, especially in a daytime. Rushing somewhere and need a dash of color on the lids, just go for it followed with mascara & eyeliner. Princess is ready! I love this shade.
MAC Bronze – Frost Finish
It is a dark brown with a frost finish. A warm-tone eyeshadow is a perfect blend if you love the touch of a smokey effect. It blends flawlessly and gives a perfect smokey effect in no time. Use it with Kohl or black eye shadow in the outer corner to get that killer sultry look. Voila! you are ready. You will look fabulous no matter how you apply it. A must shade for the to-go pick.
I am wearing Bronze eye shadow in the below images.
MAC Honeylust – Lustre Finish
Honestly, this one is a very common shade & probably dupes will do the same job. Except for one reason, I adore this Bronze-dipped peach shade, as it illuminates & gives a perfect center eyelid shine for a day’s wear. Besides, the shimmery part is best, it does not fall out. Since I have tried some other dupes where it makes application difficult, so for me, “Honeylust” is truly my BFF.
MAC Antiqued – Veluxe pearl finish
MAC described it as an Ash brown with bronze. Instead, it is a reddish bronze eye shadow that is so antique and very pigmented, just don’t forget to make the outer corner of the eye Smokey to enhance your look. Day or night! Show your swag with pretty eyes.
MAC is pricey and it’s recommended to try it before you buy it. Checking shades in the sunlight is the best thing if you want to see the real hues and color of the eye shadow. In fact, even lipsticks are the best if tested in natural light.
Further, I always spend mindfully when it comes to cosmetics. MAC is one of them. Besides, recently I read that make-up products like powder foundation, eye shadow or for that matter, anything which has talc in it, have a life of max 2 years. After that, it is best to stop using it or in other words declutter it.
This post was all about eyes and I hope you like the swatches & find this post helpful.
Thank you so much!
