Most Helpful Positive Review Stays on and worth the price!
I have always been a buyer of cheap drug store cosmetics until I started coming to the MAC counter to get the pro longwear lipstick and for years that was the only thing I bought from them. One day, however, a certain shade of eyeshadow caught my eye and I bought it. (though that voice in my head was going $15!?!? seriously?!?!)
Well, I took it home and started wearing it and I noticed from the first time that it didn't fade the way my other ones always do. Later when the summer time came and I was working in a hot room and sweating I noticed that the eyeshadow still looked like I just put it on at the end of the day. When put on over the paint pots as a base you can actually have sweat or water roll down your eyelid and take a dry towel or tissue and just blot it dry real quick and IT STILL LOOKS GOOD!!
I gradually started replacing all my drugstore eyeshadows with these from MAC. One day I was swatching them all on the back of my hand and then I had to go off and do dishes... after submerging my hands completely in warm water the eyeshadows were still on the back of my hand!! I had to put soap directly on them and rub a little before they came off - but this impressed me enough that now I don't think anything of paying $15 for these guys.
Most Helpful Critical Review Amazing Colors But Lacks Pigmentation
I love MAC products and the color selection for the eyeshadows are so beautiful! But sadly I was disappointed with the eyeshadow formula. It's patchy, dry, and the color barely shows up and is so faint. I purchased Parfait Amour (which barely showed up and is even hard to swatch) and Creme De Violet (which performed a lot better than Parfait Amour but still needed more pigmentation). To get these colors to work, I had to use a very generous layer of sticky eyeshadow primer. Using my regular silky eyeshadow primer did nothing with these shades and they didn't show up well. MAC, I love your color selection and the colors I bought and I'd buy more, but only if you work on your formula!

Jet from CA
OMG!!!! So very happy this is back in stock. I was completely gutted when this was discontinued, and despite the belief, there is no dupe for this perfect peachy brown. It is the perfect, subtle, eye brightening neutral. I am buying several. I will NOT be without this shade ever again!!!

I love Mac stuff
An eye shadow staple
kimber0917 from New Jersey
Some eyeshadows are a hit and miss from MAC, but the matte shadows never disappoint. I purchased the shade Blanc Type which is one of my favorite colors. It can be used as a base, or for highlighting the browbone. The shadow is very pigmented and versatile. Sadly this shade has been discontinued.

Schmoopy from San Diego
Always have this goody (Brule) in my beauty arsenal. Not much fall out and good coverage. Winner!
Revamped Carbon amazing!
Bey from NYC
I've been using Black Tied for years as my base black e/s because Carbon was honestly not good at all. BUT I decided to order the Revamped Carbon and OMG. As soon as I opened my package I could already see the transformation of the formula; it looks like a Velvet Matte right in the pan. It applies like a dream, velvety rich matte. I immediately ordered another Carbon lol and I will be stocking up!
Great Color...MAC Does Not Disappoint
Donna from Huntington, NY
I have used MAC products in the past and have never been disappointed with them. I was in need of an eyeshadow that would match with some of my red and off red dress shirts and tops that I have. I saw the Cranberry Frost eyeshadow and figured to try it out. The application of it was easy and I loved the color and how it looked on my eye lids. I will definitely purchase this item again, but in a different color as my off white eyeshadow that I have from MAC, in their Vapour line, which I don't think they make anymore is running low.
Love This Color❤️
Kay from Vancouver WA
Super happy with this product. Always been a fan of MAC eyeshadow & this beautiful soft neutral color didn't disappoint!
Brazilian from Charleston
Mac shadows are one of the best ones out there to me due to their performance and long wear. And this color is truly my favorite right now since it's a classy nude that can be worn alone and also with any other color shadow and still looks amazing!
Lillian from Winchester, VA
Perfect to make blue eyes pop! I use it to subtly contour my eyes, and it's natural but noticeable. It's now one of my everyday products :)
I don't wear eye shadow often, but when I do...
Mary from Grand Rapids, MI
I was in an Ulta store this winter buying moisturizer, when there was a MAC event going on. One of the gals, pulled me aside and asked if I'd like to try something. I never know how to do the smoky eye (I"m from the 80's). She put Haux and Orb on me and I liked them, so I bought them. I still am not sure I'm applying them correctly and Orb seems useless, but I wear the pair when I'm feeling fancy!
Love M A C shadows
sabmsrn from Arlington, TX
I've always loved M A C shadows! They are long lasting, don't crease, and apply smoothly!
Best for brow highlight!
Kidkittykat from Midland,TX
I've been using this color as a brow bone highlighter for over 15 years, it's just the right amount of shimmer, not too white, not too pink. I can't do my makeup without it! My skin tone is light to medium, freckles, and blonde, NC25-NC35
B from California
I really loved this color but it wasn't that pigmented when applied to my eyelid. The color also appeared darker than in the pan. It did last all day without creasing though!
