I love MAC shadows, I can't go to a counter without picking one up. When I bought my first shadow (Stars & Rockets) I hated it, the quality of the eyeshadow was horrible, so I got nervous, but after all of the AMAZING reviews on Youtube i decided to try again and i bought a few more MAC shadows and the quality was MUCH better, and now i own a ton of them. I love the colour selection that MAC has, its amazing.
all shades are amazing. i am partial to the veluxe pearls just because they feel so nice!! but seriously they are all super pigmented and will last ages, even if youre in a rush and forget primer!! my favourites are woodwinked, chrome yellow, carbon. all that glitters, aquadisiac, deep truth, freshwater [those last two are great together!] star violet with beauty marked and graphology, ugh, all of them!! i cant even write them all out
Mac offers a variety of shades and textures available to match your beauty needs. I recommend getting some staples from the permanent line but also keeping up with limited edition collections. Just be sure to check your stash before buying for repromotes and items in the permanent line.
I really love this color! I use is almost every time I do my eyes!
Great color for highlighting your eyes
I was looking for a color that would act as a highlighter on my brown eyes. I like that this color can worn with a variety of other shadows ...purple, gray, white, silver, and green and can be worn for day or evening.
For a daytime look, I put a cream or white color shadow on my entire lid and use the pink venus shadow on the crease. This color really brings out the brown and green in my eyes and blends with my tan skin. During the evening, I like to use this shadow to create a smokey eye. First, I dust a silver shadow over my entire lid. Then, I put a plum color shadow on my crease and use the "Pink Venus" shadow above the crease.
A little bit of this shadow goes a long way and contains a great deal of pigment. I use a small eyeshadow brush to blend the pink venus shadow.
I would recommend this shadow to anyone with brown, green, or blue eyes; this color looks great on all complexions and can be used to create drama or highlight the crease.
I have tried Revlon, Maybelline, Wet n Wild shadows, but Macs shadows last for months and have a great deal of pigment., that enables one to do a great smokey eye.
The only downside to this shadow is that it requires some eye makeup remover and and can crumble, while applying.
I would purchase this product again and like the fact that one can add a little water to it and make an eyeliner out of the shadow.
