I’ve never tried Mac eyeshadow. Actually, I’ve never really tried a lot of anything from Mac. During the Nordstom Anniversary sale, I decided to buy a Mac Eye and Face kit, along with a lot of other things I’d been eyeballing.
For some reason, I chose the cool one?
The palette/kit itself is beautiful. It’s sparkly and feels weighty. The mirror is absolutely fantabulous.
Anyway, I used it to create the look I’m wearing today, and while it’s okay.. and looks okay….I feel a little underwhelmed by it. Like maybe I expected a little more. Then again, it could purely be my choice of shades. I mean, really Sunshine… a cool one?
For today’s look, I used a little of the lightest shade, Take It To Go on my brow bone and to bring some light to my inner
corners caverns. Then I used Cozy Grey as a transition. I know, I know. It’s a little dark for the crease, but I was just messing around a bit and thought what-the-hell, why not?! It blended well enough, I didn’t do my usual take it above the crease trick because I didn’t want it to look like I had a black eye or anything. From there, I used my finger to pat Deception all over the lid.
( I used a fluffy brush and added just a smidge of Saucy from the Tarte Maneater Palette to warm it up a hair. That’s the warm shade you see just above the crease. )
As far as blending and wearing the shadows, I have no complaints. They blended well. I didn’t notice any patchiness or skipping and they haven’t creased yet. I’m on hour
8 9 with this makeup.
Yet, I still feel a little blah about it? Maybe it’s just the cool shades. I’m such a warm, red, yellow, crackeye orange sort of a girl.
Have you guys tried this little kit? What did you think?
