My MAC Eyeshadow Collection

-Now that I've finally completed two MAC quads, I can show you my MAC eyeshadow collection! I know that compared to other bloggers, my collection is tiny.. But i've been collecting these for a while now and I'm very excited to share my picks with you!-

{the comfort zone quad}

- Shroom -

Shroom is the perfect inner corner/brow bone highlight, it's an almost beige white which means it doesn't look too sharp or harsh when used as a highlighter- I've even worn this on my cheekbones before and it looked beautiful! It isn't too shimmery either which makes it perfect for highlighting without resembling a disco ball (been there, regret that) As far as these eyeshadows go, it is the most boring therefore if you are only wanting to build up a small collection I'd say go for a bold colour or statement eyeshadow. However, shroom is a beautiful addition to my comfort zone quad. 

- Woodwinked -

Undoubtably my most worn MAC shadow, woodwinked is a beautiful bronzed gold. This is the perfect shadow to wear all over the lid and blend out at the crease as it changes colour to a deeper bronzed shade when blended, I love the texture of all of the MAC shadows as they are so easy to blend! This eyeshadow looks amazing on people with both blue and brown eyes and woodwinked will always be a shadow that I repurchase because of it's versatility and convenience when i'm in a rush and still want to look more put together. 

- Amber Lights -

If you have blue eyes then you NEEEEEEED this eyeshadow, not kidding. I picked this one up for my birthday and it's the most beautiful golden eyeshadow (sorry UD half baked.) Whenever I wear this I get so many comments on how blue my eyes look and I think it's due to the slight copper undertone that Amber Lights possesses. The texture is creamy yet almost foiled, meaning a tiny bit of this eyeshadow goes a really long way- when blended Amber Lights transforms into a deeper version of itself. A staple for this time of year. 
- Satin Taupe -

This is one of MAC's most popular eyeshadows and one that everyone seemed to recommend to me when I was trying to complete this quad, Satin Taupe is a silver toned brown with an almost purple shade running throughout. And I do love this shade but it's one I seem to forget about, I don't know if this is because i will usually reach for my Naked palette if I want a brown smokey eye & I tend to prefer warmer toned shadows. If you are a cool toned kinda gal then i'd say give this eyeshadow a swatch and see how you feel about it, this would look stunning on green or brown eyes. 

{slightly more adventurous quad}

- All that glitters -

All that Glitters is a rose gold (bloggers dream) eyeshadow that looks amazing both swept all over the eyelid or as a highlight shadow. This is my second most worn eyeshadow from my collection as it's so versatile and wearable. 

- Mythology -

Slightly more adventurous, Mythology is a coppery brown (almost pink) eyeshadow that used to be my absolute favourite. Again, this eyeshadow really compliments both brown and blue eyes. I used to love wearing this with a darker brown ran through the crease and at one point, this was 'the' MAC eyeshadow to have. Swatching mythology for these photos reminded me just how much I love it and so will try and make a tutorial with this for Spring (when I start YouTube eeee)

- Sumptuous Olive -

I had always lusted after this eyeshadow but wimped out each time I went into MAC, could I pull off a green eyeshadow without looking like a 90's reject?! yes yes yes. This is such a beautiful green shade, it has a golden shimmer running throughout it which is why I think it's such an easy yet bold(er) colour to wear- it's perfect for a/w! If you have brown eyes this eyeshadow would look incredible on you, or if you have red hair. 

- Cranberry -

I also picked up cranberry on my birthday after 20 minutes of deliberation at the MAC eyeshadow bay and I am so pleased that Hannah from GlitterMelody urged me to purchase this because it is the most beautiful eyeshadow I own. I did wonder if i'd look like i had just been in a fight and ended it with a black eye when I wore this eyeshadow but if you blend it out properly, it gives a beautiful berry smokey eye. Again, perfect for blue eyes as the berry undertones help to make the blue stand out even more and give you gorgeous, glowing eyes. Later on in the year I will do a post on this separately with an eyeshadow look as this is the perfect shade for October time.
