I honestly love Mac eyeshadows, I mean who doesn't. Even though it is quite expensive all of us girls wish to have this in our makeup bags. First of all the packaging is really travel-friendly, the range of shades available is huge it's like meant for everyone. The best part is it's lasting capacity, no matter how much you sweat the eyeshadow stays intact and doesn't just fade away. Application? Do I really need to say anything about that? The pigmentation is absolutely perfect and it blends so easily that even a beginner can apply it easily.

MAC Eyeshadows are the most desired makeup products for me. I had a chance to get my hands on of the shade. They have around 30 different shades with shimmering effect. The pigmentation is very high just one swipe on the brush would be good enough. These eyeshadows are dermatologist tested as well.

Do I even need to talk about the brand MAC and it's products ? A brand enough to let you know what cosmetics world looks like with its quality products. I love the fact that MAC always has loads of varieties and options to choose from when it comes to shades for a particular product. And this makes me go oh so mad about their product and excited too. Look at their eyeshadow product and look the number of shades they have ! Oh so lovely , uncountable number of colours and shades to choose from :) All the colours are live and can be chosed based on your outfit. This eyeshadow gives an extra angle to your eye makeup. If you are an eye makeup person, you will love the different shades available with them. With very little and basic shades available for eyeshadow with other brands, this serves a huge variety to choose from. The lush textures and availability in nude, colourful and glittery eyeshadows, it definitely adds on to your collection of makeup vanity 🥰 Eye makeup is my most favourite makeup , especially when it comes to family functions , get-togethers, events or parties. And with these lovely shades of MAC, I'm definitely sorted.

I am a fan of beautiful looking eyes. Those eye makeups I see in various magazines just fascinate me a lot. But when it came to my own makeup I was pretty comfortable with just the kohl eyeliner. That kohl eyed look is more than enough for the day to day affair. And when it came to some occasion, I used any random eye shdow and feltthat any of them can just make my eyes untill one day my bridal makeup artist used the MAC eye shadow on to my eye lids in my trial bridal makeup session. Then I realised what is called a premium and luxury makeup and why MAC is so much in demand. And then the second MAC day was my wedding day and the eye makeup was just outstanding. Since then MAC has become one of my most favourite and luxurious brands when it comes to makeup. MAC eyeshadows are used to beautify the eyelids and that enhances the overall presence of the eye makeup. MAC eyeshadow comes with over thirty shades and has a variety of textures like pearl, shimmer, matte, etc. And I prefer using them alternately, depending upon the occasion. MAC eyeshadows get blended very well. When it comes to the eye makeup, one needs to be very careful while selecting the products. Because eyes are the most sensitive part of our body. Usng a wrong prduct may have many harmful side effects including the ageing of around the eye area. So spending a bit more for the safe beauty products is never going to be harmful. Conclusion is that MAC eye shadow is one of the must have premium luxury eye beautifying makeup brand. One must invest a little for those highly pigmented and long lasting eye shadows and get beautiful looking eyes in jiffies.

This eyeshadow is one of my favorites from Mac. About 30 beautiful shades are available for choice. Among them, there is a beautiful shadow in it called 'woodwinked' which is my favorite and I often use it. This shade is like Brown-Bronze color which can also be used on the upper eyelid. I have also tried this shade as a transition shade, otherwise, it is also good for itself. It feels great when applied neatly on upper eyelids. I never skip using a primer for its base, as it helps to make eye makeup more defined. Although these eyeshadows come in the texture of pearl, matte, shimmer, frost, and velvet, I use its pearl texture. It is highly pigmented and can be blend easily. There is no doubt that this eyeshadow is super expensive from Mac, but one can try once. The staying power is good and does not smudge even. It does not cause any kind of irritation or itching. The packaging is good with its classic Mac Pot and it is easy to select the shed of its choice because it's cover lid is transparent. Apart from this, it is also friendly to travel, but you have to keep your makeup brush separately as this eyeshadow does not come with an applicator. Only the con which, I think. The quality, no doubt is excellent, hence I do not have any major complaints. But I wish if this brand reduces its price for this product. I could have repurchased this product. I will recommend this product to all makeup lovers if they are able to grab this amazing eyeshadow at a good discount. In short, this MAC eyeshadow is simply amazing, highly pigmented shadow which is also a long lasting one. One can trust this brand to get a high and professional quality product.

i was never an eyeshadow fan. i always thought that liner, kohl and mascara completed my eye makeup look. i was introduced to eyeshadows by my best friend. she literally forced me to take it when we were at a mac store one day. it was my first ever eyeshadow and we all know when it comes to makeup one can never go wrong with mac. i picked up two shades one amber light(have heard a lot about this shade) and second cranberry. though i was little skeptical about the frost finish but my friend assured me, that it is not at all dramatic or bold, which was the first thing that came to my mind when i heard frost finish. and i guess she was right, because i am in love with these shades now. these Mac eyeshadows are highly pigmented and the colour payoff is good.. they blend so well and smooth on the eyelids. Eyes are the most sensitive and prone to wrinkles or fine lines if handled roughly. So we definitely need products which blend smoothly and do not need rigorous rubbing. also taking them off is very easy. just a small amount of makeup remover or any cleansing milk on cotton pad and a couple of swipes does the job. also the frost finish looks amazing. thanjs to my frind who forced me to take it. the lighter eyeshadow can be used on tge eyelid and the darker shades on the crease to give it a smokey effect. also a single eyeshadow shade covering the entire eyelid looks amazing. lighter shades for day wear and darker shades for the evening look. overall its one of my best makeup buys. tough i agree it to be expensive but trust me it is worth every single penny. i am definitely going to add on more shades from their lovely range of eyeshadow colors available.

When it comes for a good makeover for any party , without taking any risk i opt for branded products. Selecting the right product that suits your skin is important. MAC Products always maintains the brand name and when it comes to quality I will say it is the best that suits any kind skin. All my eyeshadow collections are mostly of MAC products. It has good collection of shades and gives good subtle look. It does not give a glitter look so you can wear it even daily, pigmentation is stunning and there is barely any fallout and you create almost any looks with this pallets. Perfect set for a smoky eyes and I always make sure that i choose the right eye shadow to make my eyes looks more pretty.I love to wear light colour eye shadow which will suit me more than a dark one .MAC eyeshadow has a very good range of light colours where everything needs to be tried.It blends with your skin easily and one can just use a normal brush to apply and it will give a good effect. Sometimes , i even use MAC eyeshadow as blush, since its highly pigmented if you are using it as a blush make sure that you dont use too much product for having the right texture. If you are expertise in selecting right colour that suits your skin tone and how to apply the shades using a perfect brush you can just have a good perfect looks with MAC eye shadow and give your eye a parlour makeup look. I was kind of wary buying an eyeshadow palette that cost this much but the pigmentation and the colours are to die for and Iam Looking forward to get some more shades in my eye shadow collections from MAC .It is completely safe to use for all skin type.I Highly suggested to use MAC eyeshadow once and you will simply fall in love with the product.

MAC is heaven for all makeup lovers and their range of eyeshadow and lipstick is massive. If you are looking for that glam look for a special occasion you must try out MAC products. Eye makeup is crucial for any makeup look. Eyeshadows brighten up your eyes giving the much needed dimensions. MAC is one of my favourite makeup brands and I use their eyeshadows whenever I am getting ready for a party or an event. Amber Lights a lovely golden hue is one of my favourite and if you like smokey eyes, Carbon is the best black eyeshadow you can use. They have a wide range of shades in eyeshadows you can choose from depensing on your makeup look requirement. They come in these little round single compact boxes with a transparent lid. There are no brushes in it, so you have to use your own eyeshadow brush and blending brush. I find these singles really convenient as they take up really tiny space in your purse. You can get the singles refill and make your own eye palate. Start your eyeshadow with a eye primer or an eyeshadow base and you will be surprised how long these eyeshadows last on your skin. The color payoff is extremely good and you don’t have to use a ton of eyeshadow on your eyelids. If you like blending eyeshadow to get that perfect dimension and depth please use a blending brush and smudge brush. I have used the MAC eyeshadows on both upper and lower lid and they stay for long and doesn’t get into creases or make awkward lines. Some of the eyeshadow shades that you can use as a beginner are – Amber Lights, Woodwinked, Satin Taupe, Cranberry, Star Violet, Mystery, Sable. They all suit the Indian skin tone and are great for doing the rose gold smokey eyes or brown smokey eyes.

MAC for me is one of the premium cosmetic brands and I have always detested from buying their products owing to the price and also I am not a regular cosmetic user which is also one of the reasons why I restrict myself from buying expensive cosmetics and find cheaper options available in the same color, range and texture. I was looking out to buy some eye shadow while shopping for my cousin’s wedding specifically to gift her. One of my friends suggested me to go for MAC products, initially I was apprehensive but I went ahead and tried these products in a mall to just get a feeling of it and understand what is so special about these highly priced products. The first thing that I tried at the MAC counter was a lipstick and then an eye shadow. My eyelids are quite small and hence applying the eye shadow never really made a difference to my eyes. Also I wear contact lenses and I fear that sweating might lead the eye shadow to wear out and enter my eyes thus causing irritation to the lenses. The lady at the counter was super helpful and applied the shimmered eye shadow giving my eyes a dramatic look. The look was subtle and it was not overboard. It did make my eyes look pretty and I was tempted to try a few more shades before I could finalize and buy. I finally loved 3 shades and bought them. Also bought 2 more shades for my cousin. The shadow did not fade away and after I tried applying it on my own I could easily apply and loved the look. It was easily removable without leaving any traces or rubbing the eyelids. It did stay well and loved the look it gave to my eyes.

MAC Eyeshadow is the best product for most of the makeup lovers. Though it’s a bit on the higher side as for as the prices are concerned however trust me every penny is worth spending when it is MAC. I am not a make up person and I rarely do or let anyone do make up on my skin. My sister in law stays in New Jersey and she gifted a few MAC products recently. In spite of not being a make up person I am completely a fan of MAC Eyeshadow now. My personal favorite is the shade saddle. And I am completely in love with it. I love doing make up now a days and all the credits goes to my SIL not majorly though its simply because of the MAC Products. This eyeshadow gives a smooth finish and a beautiful look to the eyes. As its rightly said eyes are one of the most beautiful part of a human body why not to make it look more beautiful by just adding right colors and to me today what works wonder to me is the MAC Eyeshadow. My skin tone and complexion being slightly whiteish these MAC colors look so good on my eyes. It has got a wide range of shades to choose from to be precise it got 30 different and beautiful shades. So you have lots of options in colors too so as to buy according to your interest. MAC Eyeshadows are very light and always gives a lovely look to my eyes. It usually last around 5 to 8 hours however it stays longer if applied wet depending on how bold you apply the eye shadow. The best part is that you can use MAC Eyeshadow with any brand brush as it blends very easily and gives you that Matte effect. It gives beautiful color to your eyes and it is does not affect sensitive skin. Also it comes in individual compact and not in whole palette with a transparent lid so as to make it easy to carry during travel. I highly recommend this product to each and every one.

MAC has always been my favorite cosmetic brand. I love all their products. Their cosmetics are of very superior quality. I have been using it for years. MAC Eye shadows give a very superior finish. They are used in very less quantity and one eye shadow pack lasts for very long time. They have a very good range of shades which suits almost every skin tone. It blends wonderfully and it's easy to work. It can also be build up with a stiffer brush and gives a very smooth finish. MAC eye shadows have a little bit of shimmer giving it a very beautiful look. It lasts for more than 6 hours if used with a primer and does not crease. They can be used with various techniques of makeup and give different effects when blended with other shades. MAC has never let me down on any occasion, be it a party, wedding or a day outing. It does not look cakey or heavy. While applying, it does not fallout on the eye lashes or below the eyes. I use MAC for my everyday looks to full glam while going for parties. MAC does not cause any allergies which usually can be experienced in case anyone uses a low quality cosmetic product. MAC usually appears highly priced but if you use it then you will know that how little quantity is used and how much durable it is. MAC eye shadow pan does not catch fungus which many other cosmetics do. I do not need to apply layers of it and I can generate many effects with it. So, for me this product is totally worth its price. The packaging is very good especially the pan ones which protects the product well.

I am very loyal to the cosmetic brand which I use, not naming it! I don’t try just any products randomly, as I am not confident if that will suit my skin. Especially when it comes to eyes, I have to choose all right products. In the past it happened that I used eye products that were so powdery that it even entered my eye. As I wear contact lenses, I need eye cosmetics that don’t smudge and enter the eyes. When my cousin gifted me Mac eye shadow, I took days to decide whether to use it or no. Finally, as MAC had a good reputation among women, I finally used it for a trial. I was very happy, as it had all qualities. It looked fantastic. The application was smooth and not patchy. It was easily removable. Compact and easy to carry while travelling. You can use it as wet color during the night and dry in daytime. Use a blender or brush for good effect. I find Mac very expensive so I only use it when someone gifts me. Off lately I wanted a dual eye shadow but that wasn’t available in MAC so I went for another brand. Either they have a single shade or a palette. But all shades of MAC are good. They don’t give a glittery finish.

Mac. I was introduced to this brand by my sister. She stays in Canada. She loves Mac. She owns almost everything that MAC introduces. Total extremes we are. Here I wasn’t really keen on spending a bomb on eye shades. I just stayed with what best looked on me. We do have other amazing brands. Don’t want to name here again. She bought me a pack first. I was disappointed as there was no brush. I didn’t sulk at it but them my sister pushed me harder to not judge by the cover and use the product. I so did. The range of colours are mind boggling. You always are comfortable with a set of colours. I am one of those. I like a lot of browns. I don’t experiment much. I like it that way. With a colour so vast to explore you are often confused if they would look good or no. Try everything on is something I have believed in. And so did I. The powder was good. Smooth. Didn’t get into my eyes. I am a contact lens user. So I was happy there. No much glitter which was again a plus for me. Matte was just ok. Not over the top. Stayed on for like 5 to 6 hours. Didn’t sweat it out so yes, the wet eye colour also stayed on. It’s not really water proof. The colours tend to break if they get old. Or probably too much of water in it, then later drying up of the block can also break the colour. Easy to remove. You don’t need a cleanser or any other liquid to remove the colour. Wash your face and its off. That’s a blessing. Generically a lot of the eye colours stay on even after a good face wash. This was not the case with the Mac. One more brownie point!!

MAC is a brand which I go for when it comes to makeup. Even though they are priced high, they give a perfect finish which we expect. I concentrate on Eye shadows as I give more importance to the products that goes on my eyes. I don't use eye shadows often on daily basis. And I don't go without them for parties and functions. There are over 30 shades of MAC eye shadow. As there are more options, they suit most of our skin tones. This product comes in round black compact box with a transparent lid, so that we could see the color of the shade. I find these little pan refill eye shadows so convenient because they can be easily carried in handbags as it is difficult to carry the whole palette.Always try the eye shadows on your eyelids before you buy as most of the colors we see on screen are not exactly the same color we get. And certain eye shadows are designed to suit only particular skin tone. The products are highly pigmented and can be used over eyelid and sometimes even below the sides of the lower eyelids to create a smokey effect. Apply the eye shadow over the eyelid with a brush. Eyeshadow when applied wet have a minimum fallout. Depending on how bold you apply the eye shadow, it can last around 5 to 6 hours. I love the shade saddle. It is one of my favourite color. It has a orange brown shade. Personally, I think I like this better than orangey colors. It is not completely orange, it is brown with orange undertones. It is a beautiful warm color and suit my medium skin tone.It is smooth to apply and blends well with other colors like brown, gold and has a great pigmentation. It is a warm matte eye shadow. And not as warm as brown shade which is nearly red. It gives a best brown smokey eye effect with easy blending. I love this in the crease with gold, warm bronze and coppery shades which looks good at night. You can blend it with shades like MAC Soft Brown, Soba or Wedge. Usually matte takes effort to blend but saddle is something special. You’ll be blown away by how easy it is to blend. It is also super easy to blend into other finishes too, like satins, frosts and sheens. You can use it all year because it looks great no matter the season. It also looks beautiful under your lower lashes for a natural subtle eyeliner look.

Ever since I was a teenager, I’ve been using MAC products. MAC has never let me down and I can say the same for their eyeshadows. They’re light and look lovely. My personal favorites are: Woodwinked, Vanilla and Steamy. I love how they look and blend with my wheatish complexion. I use a light variant of either of the three for work. I always receive compliments on how these colors make my hazel eyes pop. Love it!

I love the Sable shade of MAC eyeshadow. It looks so good on my medium skin tone. I have a warm medium skin tone which on hot days can come off as an olive skin tone. But this shade looks good even then. It is super easy to blend. It stays longer when used wet, but that’s just my opinion. Love it! Some other shades I love are : Patina, Woodwinked and Haux. Haux is a lovely muted matte shade. Love it!

I never buy makeup products online. Sometime back, I bought a MAC eyeshadow online and the color was slightly darker than I expected. But I went to a MAC store and they showed me how that color could be used to suit my brown skin. Now I always use MAC products. I love that each color comes in an individual compact so I’m not buying a whole palette where I might not use some of the colors. My personal favorites are: Coppering, Blackberry, Amber Lights and Cranberry.
