I've mentioned my MAC eyeshadows a handful of times here on the blog, but never have I dedicated a whole post to reviewing them. I have four, so that they fit nicely into one of MAC's quad palettes. MAC eyeshadows are a real mixed bag so here are mini reviews of the four I have, including swatches.
Where is the pigmentation?? This light gold sparkly eyeshadow has next to no pigmentation when dry, which is so disappointing considering the £10 price tag. When dampened, Retrospeck does give a lot more pigmentation but its a lot of hassle to dampen it everytime I want to wear it so Retrospeck doesn't get much use.
Omega is a light matte brown that, again, doesn't have much pigmentation in comparison to the likes of Urban Decay and Freedom. However it isn't bad at all and makes a great transition shade for a cool toned eye. It creates the perfect shadow.
I love Jest, its a light pink eyeshadow with frosted, almost icy, shimmer. The frosted finish makes it so perfect for the winter months, its literally all I wear. The pigmentation is similar to Omega in the fact that its okay but not great when compared to other brands.
ALL THAT GLITTERS
The star of the show, ATG is so pigmented and actually one of my favourite eyeshadows in my collection. For some reason, MAC are really inconsistent with the pigmentation of their eyeshadows, I mean ATG is so good and I wonder why MAC can't achieve that with other colours. Anyway, this shade is a rose gold colour with satin shimmer and everyone needs it.
