MAC Eyeshadow Collection

Hi there! I'm not sure if I ever mentioned this, but MAC Cosmetics was the first makeup brand I got into. My mother-in-law took me to a MAC counter, asked a sales associate to get me color-matched, and purchased my very first foundation and blush. Let's just say... I was hooked on makeup ever since!

When I first started, MAC was the only makeup brand I purchased from. It wasn't until a couple of years later until I visited Sephora for the first time... Since I branched out to different brands, I don't really purchase anything from MAC anymore. Not because I don't like MAC, but because I have a preference for other brands.

Anyway, here is my eyeshadow collection! I also added my only paint pots and pigment since they're eye related.

On me, paint pots tend to crease unless I apply eyeshadow primer beforehand. I use these as bases, but occasionally use Vintage Selection on its own.

Swatches:

Onto the eyeshadows:
Single eyeshadows I have yet to depot!

Swatches:

My old MAC eyeshadow palette. -- some of these shades are my daily staples

Swatches:


 
MAC Shadows stored in my pink Z-Palette.

Swatches:



Shadowy Lady Quad & Cocomotion pigment

Swatches:

Like every brand, some of these shadows are amazing, some are okay, and some are disappointing. After swatching everything, I can say most of the colored ones are misses - hard texture, not pigmented, and I had to layer them over and over again for the colors to show up on camera. Aside from that, the Matte2 finishes are superb - super pigmented and blends easily! 

Do you own any MAC eyeshadows? Which shades are your staples/favorites?

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Vintage Selection is so pretty! I have a small MAC eyeshadow collection. I currently just have the basics that I like. I don't think I will be getting more unless one speaks to me!

  4. Last offered in bright red and light grey, the adidas Tubular Radial returns this season in a spring-appropriate finish of ice mint.Flaunting a knitted mesh upper with suede overlays for its heel and modernized three stripe motif which also acts as its lacing apparatus, the silhouette is Adidas Basketball Shoes further defined by a mid-foot strap, which adds additional reinforcement to its overall build.Striped black/white laces complement the sneaker’s vibrant theme, as it’s topped off by the signature tubular-inspired rubber sole unit.Priced at $110, you can purchase this pair at select adidas retailers nationwide now.
    The adidas Tubular Instinct NMD City Sock stepped onto the scene earlier this year and so far has only released in high top form. But with the way adidas tinkers with lots of their silhouettes these days, you knew that the odds of seeing a low top version was definitely a possibility.Well here it is. Up above Adidas Yeezy Boost 950 we get our first look at the adidas Tubular Instinct Low in two different tonal colorways of Core Black and Clear Brown. The chopped down Tubular comes Adidas Ultra Boost equipped with a suede upper and mesh detailing on the back half of the shoe. No firm release date is available yet, but look for the adidas Tubular Instinct Low to release stateside as early as January of 2017. What do you think?
    Boost has taken over 2016 as some of this year’s best and most popular releases have come from adidas and their Boost-loaded silhouettes. Sneakers such as the NMD, Ultra Boost, Ultra Boost Uncaged, and NMD Runner Yeezy Boost immediately come to mind.Next year they’ll be adding another Boost sneaker to the already long list as we today we take out first look at the adidas Iniki Runner Boost. The shoe features a retro-inspired look on the upper as it comes constructed out of nubuck and what Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Beluga
