When I ordered my paint pot I also got an eyeshadow. Over the years I have used MAC eyeshadows and I usually think they are pretty good. The light colours don’t have earth shattering pigment but then again that is not what I am looking for at all anyway. I want an eyeshadow that is buildable but can be applied lighter. I saw this eyeshadow and I decided to try it.
What does MAC say about this product? They call this eyeshadow a soft pinkish beige. They also call the shadow a highly pigmented powder that applies evenly and blends well. Behold the power of pigment. Elevate your eyes with a streak of rich, highly pigmented pressed powder. This saturated shadow formula stays on all day long with non-creasing, eight-hour wear. The result: potent colour payoff that applies evenly, blends well and can be used wet or dry. Available in a kaleidoscope of colours, textures and finishes.They even say it’s: Long-wearing, 8 hours, Non-creasing, Can be used wet or dry, Does not cause acne, Safe for contact-lens wearers, Dermatologist-tested and Ophthalmologist-tested

What do I think?
I really like this eyeshadow, I think it’s very easy to give me a very fresh eyeshadow look especially when I am pressed for time when I have to start at nine a.m. I do think you need to be cautious with using it wet though as this can form bacteria more easily.
I usually use this eyeshadow with wedge in the crease (also from MAC, read my review here) and I love this combo. I think this is a lovely easy to use shadow. It is however very light and doesn’t show up as much when I haven’t neutralised the colour of my eyelids. I like the eyeshadow it’s an easy go to that lasts a long time and makes my eyes look very open and awake.
The product can be bough at a MAC counter, store or online and retails for 19,50 (euros)
