MAC Eye Shadow in 'Shale' // Swatches! ♥

Friday, 6 December 2013

Along with picking up my first ever MAC Lipstick (see here) I also picked up my first MAC eye shadow. I picked up the shade 'Shale' which is a satin finish eye shadow. It's described as a mauve-plum shade, with subtle shimmer.

 I find it has a bit more of a taupe-y brown undertone, but very much a plum shade. It does have subtle shimmer but as you'd expect nothing too out there or in your face. It blends effortlessly on the eye and although I don't wear makeup generally ALL day, it hasn't creased on me yet. I love the shade, it's so subtle for an everyday smoky (ish) eye, perfect for winter and it makes a brilliant base for a more dramatic and out there smoky eye.

Where MAC didn't sell me on their lipsticks, MAC have indeed, sold me on their eye shadows and I will most likely be buying more sometime soon, they're just so nice to work with, the pigmentation is lovely and I just love everything about them.
