I swear on my entire makeup collection; I'm not a MAC devotee. Just so happens that they make a lot of products that I really like... And some of my favorite products are their eye colors. The eyeshadows are sometimes questionable but the pigments are almost always gorgeous. Even ParisB, who is not a MAC fan, cannot resist.
This post will be a continuation of the video tutorial that I left y'all with last weekend so if you wanted to know what are all the products that I've used (and what I was eating), do continue reading. Also, I've done swatches of some MAC eye colors in my collection.
Look #1: Cool Heat (lid), Bronzescape (crease)
Look #2: Heritage rouge (lid), Vintage Gold (crease), Dreammaker (highlight)
Look #3: Old Gold (lid), Glamour Check! (crease)
Look #4: Heritage Rouge (crease), Teal (lower lashline)
Dreammaker (Starflash) - LE: Sparse gold shimmer with hardly any pigmentation. I use this for blending sometimes but not so much as a highlight or on its own. I predict that I'll get bored of it soon enough
Glamour Check! (Starflash) - LE: I love this shimmery warm chocolate brown color. It's great as a lid or crease color and pairs well with any other color. Great blendable texture too. If it's ever repromoted again, get it!
Cool Heat (Frost) - LE: To be honest, I didn't intend on getting this color because I knew the texture was crappy but the moment I saw the gorgeous teal blue with golden shimmer, I grabbed it. The best way to apply this shadow is wet or you'll get very chunky chalky color
Now on to the good stuff! I've lost track of whether or not the colors are LE but pigment samples are not hard to find so even if the color is LE, you can still get a sample.
Vintage Gold: This dirty green with gold pearl is a nice color to have around. It's great for many sorts of looks and matches well with many colors.
Old Gold: One of those unique colors that are quite impossible to dupe. Sometimes it looks gold, sometimes green. Use a black base underneath and you'll see the green in this gold really popping out. I don't use this color much because it's quite vibrant (almost fluorescent) but it's really a must-have pigment simply because it's special
Teal: Excellent color which is why I'm very surprised that I haven't been using this color! I have a thing for teal eyeshadow and this one certainly doesn't disappoint. The texture is incredible too
Heritage Rouge: Yet another favorite, this low-shimmer burgandy shade is the kind of 'red' that won't make your lids look swollen
Bronzescape (Solar Bits): This one's not a pigment but it resembles a pigment. It's called Solar Bits and the shadows come in loose clusters. It's very creamy so I find the texture difficult to work with. I won't be bothered to get another Solar Bit. one's enough for collection sake
