Why it's number one: Why do reviewers think MAC eye shadows are top notch? "The pigmentation is good, the lasting power is good, and there are TONS of great colors!" says one TotalBeauty.com member. Reviewers agree that the amount of color available is one of their favorite things about this shadow. "They have colors available that I haven't even dreamed of," says one reviewer. "If you cannot find your color at MAC, you probably won't find it anywhere," says another. Reviewers also loved the blending element of these shadows -- they give eyes a "dramatic and clean look" that "doesn't smudge" and "is very long-lasting." They note that the shadows are "not cheap," but also say that "each little pan lasts for ages, even when used close to every day." Bottom line: "MAC will forever be my 'go to' for eye shadows," says one reviewer, a sentiment echoed by many others.
