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.
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!

Hand down my favorite eye shadow color. I love to throw it on when I don't want to do a ton of eye makeup. Always makes me look bright and like I put effort in

Nonna from Oxford, CT
I use this shadow all over my eye first. It spreads beautifully and stays on all day. I build from there using only MAC shadows. I think they are the best!
Judy from Foley, AL
I use it for contouring and highlighting.

You're better off getting drugstore black. Carbon does not live up to the quality of the brand. It is patchy and dull.

I cannot truly express how much I love this eyeshadow. It does not matter if I wear it during the day in an office setting or go a little over-the-top for going out at night, or whether I happen to be dressed down or dressed up, people tell me how great my eyes look in this color. I can honestly say that I've had strangers come up and ask me what color/brand I'm wearing when I use this eyeshadow. That's a pretty great statement!

I love this newer shade as a one and done eyeshadow. I keep repurchasing charcoal brown , wedge, brun,shroom all that glitters , blanc type ,print and Haux are my favorites forever. They are a little pricey but I love Mac

I bought this in shade carbon because my ulta was out of both buxom and urban decay black eyeshadow singles. I applied with a normal eyeshadow brush on top of urban decay primer potion. First thing I noticed was that there were gaps and "bald spots" where I had already applied the eyeshadow. NBD I'm thinking, and I try to reapply it in the bald spot, immediately made it worse. Fallout is also beyond worse than normal and it's very chalky and lacks pigment.

I really wanted to see what all the hype was. So glad I checked it out. This color goes on so smooth and adds so much brightness to your eyes! Works well with every color I use. This is a new favorite.

This is a gorgeous duo-chrome with great color payoff.
Stacey from Arizona
You can never go wrong with these. Pigmented, easy to blend, and long wearing if you know how to properly do your makeup. Otherwise, you're doing something wrong.
Rxmom from MI
Love the 4 colors I purchased. I also bought the compact so I can have them all in one place, but can't figure out how to get them out of the holder. I've been afraid I'm going to ruin the shadow. I'd appreciate any help you can give.

Vex is a shimmery silver shade that will blend with mattes for a little pizzaz! If you are looking for green/pink overtones in the shade description this is not the one...
Disappointed, but will keep it or pass it on to my niece.
I also ordered Naked Lunch the color is more neutral shimmery with a slight hint of pink; it's ok, good for being in a hurry and don't have the time to fuss with eye application...

The Mac eye shadow blends very well, and it is easy to add as much, or little, as I want
Marcie from Santa Cruz Ca
