MAC Eyeshadow Haul

40 comments
Hello Lovelies,
I hope you're all well and having a good week.
A few of weeks ago I had some time off work and MAC gift vouchers to spend.
MAC gift vouchers can't be spent at MAC counters/concessions in department stores for some reason, so I headed off  to Westfield where my nearest MAC store is. As you can see, I  went a lil eyeshadow crazy.
 I love MAC eyeshadows. I'd even go as far as saying eyeshadows are the best products that MAC do. The range of colours that they offer is second to none and I can't think of a single brand which is as easily accessible as MAC and offers as many colours as they do.
The quality of MAC eyeshadows is amazing too. I find them highly pigmented, very finely milled and easy to blend and work with. MAC eyeshadows are also very long wearing and you don't get a lot of fall out from the,. I'm so addicted to MAC eyeshadows that I own 2 of their large eyeshadow pallets which fit 15 shadows each as well as a smaller pallet that fits 4 eyeshadows. I know that that's a slightly ridiculous amount of eyeshadow, but I wear eyeshadow on a daily basis, so I do not feel like this collection is unloved or going to waste.
As you can see from the colours that I picked, I love wearing neutral colours on my eyes. I've swatched these shades without a primer for so you can see just how pigmented the colours are.
MAC Smut 
Smut is a velvet finish. MAC describe it as a muted black with red shimmer. It's the perfect colour to create a dark smokey eye without using black eyeshadow which can sometimes look a bit too harsh, especially if you've got smaller eyes. Smut looks great blended through the crease or applied to the outer v to smoke out any eye look.
MAC Woodwinked 
I've owned Woodwinked before and used it all up. It's one of my favourite MAC eyeshadows so I decided to repurchase it. Woodwinked is a Veluxe Pearl finish, which is my favourite finish for a MAC eye shadow. MAC describe the colour as warm antique gold. Woodwinked is one of those shades that you can wear just by itself and will look beautiful no matter what eye colour you have. 
MAC Soba
I bought this eyeshadow by accident as I was actually after Sable but I got the name wrong and ended up with Soba. MAC Soba has a satin finish and looks lovely as an all over lid colour or blended through the crease with a lighter shadow on the lid. MAC describe the colour as a gold brown with gold shimmer, but as you can see the picture, the finish of Soba is quite matt.
 MAC Club 
MAC describe Club as a red-brown with green pearl. It is a satin finish. MAC Club has been on my wish list for ages. I think it's a shade that would suit any skin tone and like Smut is a great alternative to black eyeshadow when creating a dark smokey eye. I'm not sure I would use this as a lid colour as it's quite dark, but it looks amazing blended through the crease and outer v of your eyes.
 MAC Tempting 
Tempting has a lustre finish which are known to have quite a bit of fall out when you use them.This is why I tend to stay away from lustre finishes, but I've heard so many great things about Tempting that I decided to buy it anyway. MAC describe Tempting as a sinfully rich coco and I definitely agree with this description. I think this shade would look amazing for an evening or on a night out.
MAC All That Glitters
All That Glitters is another one of my favourites. It's a veluxe pearl finish and MAC describe it as a beige colour with gold pearl. All That Glitters looks stunning worn as an all over lid colour or as a highlight colour and I am really glad to have it in my collection again as it's one of those every day shades you can always wear!

Well that's it for my MAC Eyeshadow Haul. I really hope you've enjoyed this post and found it useful. I love all these colours and if you're just starting out with MAC eyeshadow, I would recommend any of these.
What's your favourite MAC eyeshadow?

  21. Okay wauw. You bought such beautiful shades! And the description you gave is really helpful. Sometimes it says something different on the website and then it's hard to make up the real colour. I was planning on buying my first MAC eyeshadows soon and these look soooo prettyyy. They have so much choice that you just don't know where to start haha
