When I was at the M.A.C store and was looking at the collections of eyeshadows, I wanted to buy everything. But I could afford only two containers of M.A.C Matte Eye Shadow. With the help of the beautician, I chose the shades “I’m Into It” and “Omega.”

The packaging is decent and sturdy, and the size is perfect to carry around. After getting these two shades, I have been using them daily to the office and even during night outs. The combination blends so well together.

What I do is, I use “Omega” as the base and spread it all over my eye crease, then I take “I’m into it” and blend it in the middle of the lid. After blending it, I apply a black eyeliner with mascara. These few steps and my eyes look so good! This eyeshadow sits on my skin so well. Even when I sweat, it does not smudge or get dull. The shade stays true to its color throughout.

I will recommend this M.A.C Matte Eye Shadow to everyone because it has a range of many colors that will suit almost every skin tone. And the price is reasonable because it lasts for so long. It is an eyeshadow to keep for sure.

PROS

Matte finish

Safe to use while wearing contact lens

CONS

Expensive

Falls out

Needs primer

Does not blend easily


The shade I have with me is “Blackberry.” MAC Matte Eye Shadow is a very hard dry pressed powder eyeshadow. The color looks beautiful on the container. But on my crease, it tends to fall out a lot. So on me, I need to use a primer to set it right and make it stay put for a more extended period. And as compared to other eyeshadows I have used, this one needs a little bit more effort to blend. Overall, I am not so satisfied with MAC Matte Eye Shadow.

2/5

PROS

Compact packaging

Beautiful colors

CONS

Expensive

Needs several swirls to get the proper shade

Not highly pigmented as claimed


All the M.A.C products I have used have never failed me. But this M.A.C Matte Eye Shadow is an exceptional case. The shade I got for myself is Yogurt which is a soft pale pink. I just could not get the color out of the container. The finish is matte for sure, but I have to swirl my brush around several times to get a proper amount of pigment. This is not what I asked for, so I am very disappointed with this buy from M.A.C.

4.6/5

PROS

Creates beautiful transitions

Goes well with every color

Easily blendable

Does not fall out

CONS

Expensive


I bought MAC Matte Eye Shadow online because there was a discount. Though I was hesitant to buy it online, the price was too good just to let it pass. Anyways, I ordered “Wedge,” and it is the most beautiful color that goes well with all colors. I use "Wedge" for transition, and it gives such a beautiful edge and finishing to every experiment I come up with. I am pleased with my purchase.
