Oooooo!!! I <3 these! I actually have them on in my profile pic! Now I see that they are now a black/blue combo. In my pic I have the no longer made all blue style. These are so much fun for a ultra-dramatic look. They start off shorter near the inner corner and then flair out to an extreme upward flip on the outer edges.
Oh how I adore ALL of Shu's lashes......they are some of the most durable lashes I've tried! I usually get at least 5 wears out of a single pair! The Luxe Black lashes give your eyes a very nice soft look while still being ultra glamorous! These for me are a more natural look, one I'd do for a wedding or daytime wear, but I've got thick long lashes of my own. If you have shorter thin lashes these will be pretty dramatic.
As a former MAC Artist I've used almost every single shadow color and texture that MAC has to offer! They vary in pigmentation due to the different textures; some are meant to be sheer and sparkly while others are meant to be intensely pigmented with a very smooth opaque appearance. I always use a cream type base before applying eyeshadow so regardless of the texture I always get an opaque payoff. While there are other brands of eyeshadow that I like more than MAC, for the price they really cannot be beat!
