REVIEW | MAC SINGLE EYE SHADOWS

Who doesn't love MAC eye shadows, I love browsing the isles of any MAC stores and they are so enticing that you WILL eventually cave in and buy at least one thing before leaving the store. I recently started collecting MAC eye shadows, I know I am a bit late to get on the train but better late than never. I bought my first MAC Eye Shadow Palette and now have a few of their single eye shadows. I was lucky enough to work on the makeup team of a concert that MAC was sponsoring and so we got to keep a few of their products and I got three of the eye shadows. I picked the shades Freshwater, Brun and Shroom. They cost HK$150 each and if you buy the refillable ones then its HK$100.

Shroom is a soft beige with shimmer. Its from the satin collection, and the finish can vary depending on the eye shadow. Some are completely matte like Brun while some are super frosty like Shroom. Majority in this collection have a subtle sheen or matte appearance. Shroom has a subtle sheen. The eye shadow is very pigmented. This eye shadow is super soft and smooth to the touch and the application is absolutely easy. The eye shadows just glide over the eyelids very easily with minimal fall off. Perfect for highlighting the brow-bone and tear duct area. 


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. Whenever 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. All in all the eye shadows are easy to blend, has super pigmentation and doesn't have noticeable fall off when applying them so you wont end up with panda eyes. 

My love for MAC eye shadows are growing and I am waiting for my upcoming US holiday to grab a few that we don't have here in Hong Kong. I want my MUA kit to be just filled with MAC eye shadows and I hope my dream will be full filled.
