Okay, thats an over exaggeration but not really. If I'm in the market for an eyeshadow, I go to MAC first because I know it will show up beautifully and last a long time. The best part is that I can refill my favorites in the Pro Pallet. I picked Kid for this review because its the color I wear EVERYDAY. I've tried many eyeshadows (drugstore, Chanel, Smashbox, Urban Decay, Bare Essentials... etc.) and MAC has the widest range of texture and color and they all look awesome. I can't praise these bad boys enough.
I wear this color everyday!! For a natural look, it's perfect, and if you blend it/mix it with other brighter or darker colors, it gives you the perfect shade for Smoky eyes. I have used it on different skin tones too, and it works! It's a must get for a flawless, natural look.
I actually bought this because I thought it would look good as a cheek highlight! As a highlighter, I think it's really good - Just a hint, applied with a big, soft brush and it's perfect! Eyeshadow-wise I don't like it as much. I have yellow undertones in my skin, and I don't feel it suits me very well on the eyes. I don't know if I apply too much, use the wrong tool or my base doesn't work with it, but I feel it's WAY too bright and shimmery and difficult to blend, but that's just me. Otherwise, it's a decent shade, and it's worth a try.
This is a favourite e/s. I use it a lot for bridal work as it really compliments green and blue eyes due to it's slightly orangey hue. It's shimmery without being too much for a more mature eye and it's pigment is really pure so you don't need to apply a lot of product to get a great effect. Works really well on top of Mac Paint Pot Groundwork with Mac eyeshadow Cork in the crease. Also a great colour for Asian Bridal too. I would reccomend using a base with this and all powder eyeshadows to avoid creasing from the warmth of skin. Beautiful colour. 10/10
I completely missed out on the Barbie Loves Mac collection and when I saw that this color was available again in the Mac By Request collection I knew I had to have it. And, boy am I glad I snagged it as it looks like it has already sold out on the mac website. I even took a leap of faith and bought two of them so I would have a backup. As soon as I put this shade on I knew I was in love. It's a very interesting color. A sort of blueish purple taupe. I'd say it leans more grey than brown but it's just gorgeous. If you can find a way to get your hands on it, DO IT!
This is a great basic shadow for a simple everyday look or incorporated with darker shadows for a more dramatic effect. It's highly pigmented and because you don't have to use so much it lasts a really long time. Plus buying the refill pan for a custom palette is cheaper than to get the individual pots!
