Tag Archives: Eye Shadows

I do have quite a collection of eye shadows from many brands but my top favorite is MAC eye shadow. There is something great about the quality and lasting power. The price is affordable even though it is a bit higher than drug store one. I always go back to MAC almost every time I am thinking about buying new shadows.

Here are my top 5 eye shadows from MAC.

Left to Right: Brule, Swish, Tempting, Antiqued, Cranberry

Swatches (Left to Right): Brule, Swish, Tempting, Antiqued, Cranberry

.

Brule (Satin): It is so neutral and so perfect for highlight color. I just love the softness of vanilla tone on my brow bones. It gives such a great definition of the eyes and lids. I never get tired of using this one and I will repurchase again and again.

MAC Shadow: Brule

.

Swish (Frost): The first time I saw Switch I thought it was too Barbie-like for me, bright pink with icy shimmer. I finally gave in after reading so many good reviews about it. The color looks so pretty on my lids. I use it almost every day during summer. It could combine with a darker red or purple tone to intensity the crease. This shadow can create so many different looks.

MAC Shadow: Swish

.

Tempting (Lustre): The color is between brown and bronze. There are tiny particles of glitter in it, but it looks more like shimmer. Again, first I thought the glitter would ruin my makeup because of the fallouts. But at the end, the good eye shadow base would keep them stay put and the color is so amazing. Hands down for this one!

MAC Shadow: Tempting

.

Antiqued (Veluxe Pearl): It is a copper brown with gold undertone. I love to use it on the crease to intensity the color. My eyes look brighter with more definition. Sometimes I just wear only this color by applying only one coat and soften it with MAC brush 224, the color is beautiful.

MAC Shadow: Antiqued

.

Cranberry (Frost): The color is red plum with pink shimmer. I love this one for an evening look. It goes very well with Swish; Swish on the lids and Cranberry on the crease. The texture is so pigmented; you only need to pad a tiny bit on your lids. The color is gorgeous!

MAC Shadow: Cranberry

They are amazing products and I would recommend it for anyone who is thinking about getting a new eye shadow. Enjoy!

“Naked Eye” Palette by Too Faced is described as Soft and Sexy Eye Shadow Collection. This is one of the palettes that you can create all kinds of different looks… so versatile, good value for money in my opinions. The palette itself is very light weight, it is quite convenient for travelling if you want to bring with you somewhere. I love the Too Faced always comes out with neutral and wearable colors… the products are very pigmented and you don’t need to pile on too much for your lids. Another piece of quality primer that you might consider to pick up is Too Faced Shadow Insurance (Eye Primer), it’d be perfect to use with these eye shadows.
