Editor's Rating & Review
These tiny, round pots offer a little something for everyone with more than 150 shades to choose from. Lids flip open to control mess and product stays on eyelids without powdering off midday. With a wet brush, the shadow doubles as liner. The "highly pigmented" colors come in everything from satin finish to frosted shine, or they can be layered for combinations. These pots can get pricey, so if you want to sample several colors, consider the slightly less expensive multi-shadow palettes.
MAC Eye Shadow Reviews
MAC, You Had Me at Hello!I recently read an article about MAC cosmetics and how it began as a humble venture. Now available in more than 70 countries and worn by virtually every runway model and celebrity, the company is huge (it was snatched up by Estee Lauder in 1998). MAC accounts for more cosmetic sales than any other non-drugstore brand. Why? MAC tries to be "all things for all women," a brand that is not intimidating, non-judgmental, and makes using makeup as much fun as possible. The company doesn't want to be stereotyped as preppy, sophisticated, or outrageous. It wants to defy description--and it does! With its mind-blowing number of eye shadow colors, there are certainly several to fit anybody. More overwhelming? MAC shadows are available in a enticing range of finishes--frost, lustre, matte, satin, veluxe pearl, and velvet. How can a woman NOT fall in love? Choosing MAC shadows is very much like visiting a Sherwin-Williams paint store, where you stand with your mouth agape at what is available. The hues have such subtle gradations that you may find yourself comparing two for half an hour. With my addiction to eye shadows, I practice the ultimate in self-control when I visit a MAC counter and make sure I research their online site thoroughly beforehand so that I know what I want. If I don't, I may be late on our mortgage payment! How does one not fall in love with the deep, true pigmentation, the plush, deluxe texture, or the all-day wear? My only problem is that I want to work with many of these shadows at once. I want to combine "Vapour" (velvety peach-pink with a violet pearl undertone) with "Steamy" (bluish-green) or possibly "Handwritten" (a chocolate so deep and inviting that you don't know whether to bite into it or wear it!). The price of $15.00 per shade is reasonable for the quality you get, but it's too much to buy all that I want. That sounds hedonistic, and perhaps it is. One trick I've learned with these wondrous gems: You can use brushes to work with them, but you can also simply employ your finger to press the outstanding tones onto your eyes for a gentle, ethereal look. However you choose to use it, just do it! (Whoops, I'm stealing your thunder, Nike!) — 2 months, 2 weeks agoGigiSD | 562 reviews

YES.MAC eyeshadows are my favorite. I love the wide palate of colors-- they have colors available that I haven't even dreamed of. They are very blendable and wear a fairly long time. Best of all, though, is that each one lasts forever, and doesn't fade. I usually have to force myself to throw them out before I'm done using them. — 2 years, 3 months agoLittleBunny | 526 reviews
