MAC CUSTOMIZABLE EYE SHADOW QUAD
I think we all know how amazing MAC eye shadows are that is the exact reason why we love to collect and have them in our collection. I am sure there are so many reviews out there but each of us has different experiences and some of you like me might be newbies so I thought I will share my thoughts on them.
All That Glitters
All That Glitters is from the veluxe pearl collection and velvet finish which is a metallic pearly shimmer. The eye shadow is a beige with gold pearl. The eye shadow is very pigmented. This eye shadow is super soft and smooth to the touch and the application is very easy. It glides over the eyelids very easily with minimal fall off. I bought this shade because I thought it was would a great as a highlight colour and perfect for the tear-duct area.
Sable is from the frost eye shadow collection and has a frosty finish which is a shinning iridescent appearance. The eye shadow is super soft and creamy. The eye shadow is very pigmented. It glides over the eyelids with ease and has minimal fall off. The eye shadow is a gold plum with bronze pearl. I love warm tones and I bought this because this would be the perfect an all over the eyelid colour.
Casino is from the lustre collection and has a lustre finish which is a dry shimmery appearance. The eye shadow is a peachy gold shimmer. The eye shadow is pigmented once you have to packed it onto the eyelids. The eye shadow is soft but more towards the drier side. When applying this eye shadow you can to really pack it on as it doesn't glide over the eyelids with the same ease as the rest. I did notice a bit of fall off but not too bad. I bought it because when I saw this shade is was so bright and popped out to me. I think would be perfect for as an all over eyelid colour and even in the tear-duct area.
Start Violet is from the veluxe pearl collection and has a velvet finish which is a metallic pearly shimmer appearance. The eye shadow is a pink brown plum. The eye shadow is very pigmented. The eye shadow is super soft and smooth to the touch and the application is very easy. It glides over the eyelids very easily with minimal fall off.I found this to be my perfect darker shade for the outer corners. You can wear it in the day time (with a light hand) as well as in the night (with a heavier hand).
All the eye shadows are easy to blend and doesn't have noticeable fall off when applying them onto the eyes, however Casino was a bit more difficult to apply as you had to really pack it onto the eyelids and it did have more fall off than the rest.
Let me first tell you that my eyelids are super oily and I always need an eyelid primer so that it will last longer, so most of the time I wear a primer. When ever I wore these eye shadows with a primer it lasted almost till I got home which was around 6-7 hours. If I wore it without an eye primer it lasted around 3-4 hours, I know you must be think these are MAC eye shadows but my eyelids just don't care. The good thing about wearing an eye primer is that as much as it lasts longer it also brightens the eye shadow up as my skin tone is much darker that is a plus for me. So if I am going to be out till late I always wear a primer.
After buying these four eye shadows I have fallen in love, they are some of the best eye shadows I have tried so far and I am on the pursuit to collect as much as I can. It will be useful as I am working as a freelance makeup artist so you never have enough.
