As I stated last week, I just resumed buying Mac products again after a five year hiatus, and believe me, It’s been a very long interruption! I somehow lost interest in MAC but now I just can’t get enough, I’m falling in love all over again with my old favourite products.
Being the eyeshadow junkie that I am, I quickly started to make my own neutral palette using MAC’s Eyeshadow Pro Palette Refill Pans! With just 5 remaining slots to fill, I have been a busy beaver (as in Canadian and hard working… you freaks!!!). I think I need some purple shades for spring so I’m leaning towards: Shale, Parfait Amour, Stars’N’Rocket, Beautiful Iris & Quarry … But, the more I think about this, my OCD-self is having some doubts about adding purple shadows in a neutral palette!! I will most likely buy 5 more neutral shades (Amber Lights, Malt, Woodwinked, Haux & Bamboo) and start a pink/purple new palette (I know, I’m a strange creature). Imagine BeardMan on a day-to-day basis, I never leave a rope around, just in case… 💀🔫
See my two choices to complete my Mac x 15 palette …
♥ Neutral ♥
♥ Purple ♥
So with all the eyeshadows that I own, what makes Mac shadows must-haves:
♥ They blend like a charm.
♥ 126 shades to choose from just in their regular eyeshadows.
♥ Pigmentation is just right; enough to make the most beautiful eye look without having to layer and layer.
♥ Very beginner’s friendly. They are almost mistake proof; you cannot over blend or under blend them.
♥ There is hardly any fallout (This is my biggest pet peeve in an eyeshadow: no matter how gorgeous it is, if there is fallouts, I won’t use it! Urban Decay Vice 4 I’m talking to you!)
♥ Stay put all day long without budging (I use Mac Paint Pots as my eyeshadow primer)!!
Bottom Line :
Are they the best eyeshadows in the world? Nope. But Mac shadows have the best quality possible and they are so easy to apply; even the worst makeup artist will end up with a beautiful daytime (or nighttime) look. I love them for what they are: easy to work with when I’m in a hurry in the morning, lots of shades available and no fallout!!! They come at 10$US a pop (12$CND) which is not overly priced but yet not that affordable (compare to the palette form)… The fact that I created my own palette with all my preferred shadows makes it a breeze at achieving stunning natural eye look!
It’s sad to see that overtime Mac have lost its uniqueness and I can sadly feel in all my readers’ comments that the interest is not there. I’m on a Mac binge right now; will they be able to kept me interested for a long period? It remains to be seen…
Note: I also own the Mac X 15 Cool Neutral eye palette, that I will review in week 10 of my Project Focus 10.
Do you own any Mac eyeshadows ?
