Jumbo Pencils are SO creamy and pigmented, but I do find that they crease on me at the end of the day, or cause my shadows to move around. I love using them but always seem to come home from school disappointed. Won't stop me from using them though! ;)
The shadows I reach for EVERY day. You just can't go wrong, and can always trust you're buying something worth hauling about ;) There are SO many colors, it's kinda overwhelming to walk into Mac and try to pick just one out, so I stick with the cult favorites that everyone loves like All that Glitters, Mulch, Satin Taupe, Brule, Woodwinked, etc. (PS those that I just listed are my all time favorites!!) A must if you're just starting out with Mac, you'll find eyeshadow in every mac starter kit.
