So, before I show you my MAC eyeshadow haulage over the past two months, I have a teeny, tiny confession to make; I bought my first MAC shadow two months ago! Yup, I was a complete MAC eyeshadow virgin, up until my last journal entry. There were a few reasons why I refrained from buying MAC shadows – first and foremost was my insane fear of becoming an eyeshadow junkie. We all know MAC makes some of the best eyeshadows ever, and I was really scared of getting heavily hooked on ‘em!
I’ve managed to control my cravings, somewhat, but in all honesty – I’ve stopped buying all other makeup products at my local Macy’s! Seriously, I go straight to the MAC counter and end up blowing my cash before I’m able to go anywhere else. I really don’t regret it though, MAC products are too awesome!
Anyway, here are all of the shadows I have managed to purchase over two months ;
I keep all of ‘em in this cute little cup that came with some flowers the hubby got me for our 2nd anniversary.
All 8 of them, ain’t they so pretty!
And here are some individual pictures;
All That Glitters
And lastly, here are some swatches over my MAC Paintpot in Soft Ochre;
After looking at the pictures, I realized that Bronze and Tempting look very similar – they really don’t in person. Tempting is more of a chocolate color, while Bronze really is a Bronze. :)
Anyway, if you need any help kickstarting your MAC makeup collection, Christine of Temptalia has made a really helpful compilation of the best makeup (shadow, lippies, blushes) for your skintone.
And if you browse around her site more, she also has a list for lighter or darker skintones. Hope this helps you build your collection like it has mine!
Till the next time ladies. :D
