Mac Eyeshadows - Satin Taupe & Woodwinked

Thursday, 10 April 2014

Hey Dolls.
Today I want to talk about two of the prettiest eyeshadows I have ever laid my eyes on. Satin Taupe & Woodwinked from Mac.

Mac eyeshadows have very simple packaging. They come packaged in a small black plastic pot with a clear lid which has the Mac logo on it. It feels very secure & has that little click when closed which gives me more assurance that they will be safe if I travel with them.

Satin Taupe is a taupe shade from the Frost range. 

Woodwinked is a deep gold shade from the Veluxe Pearl range.

The quality of the eyeshadows is incredible. They are well pigmented, buttery soft & blend like a dream with no fall out to be seen. You only need a small amount as the colour payoff is amazing. The shades are great for both day & night as they can just be swept over the lid or built up to be more intense. The lasting power of the shadows is great, with a primer they last all day without creasing or fading. I always use a primer, as I have oily lids so I'm not sure how they would last without one. I've found that the shades work really well together, I usually lightly dust woodwinked over the lid & add satin taupe to the crease & outer corner as well as I possibly can. It creates such a simple look that can be rocked for any occasion.

I am incredibly impressed with the eyeshadows. The quality is incredible, they are pigmented, easy to apply & blend like a dream. What more can you ask from a eyeshadow?

However, Mac are quite pricey & I know not everyone can afford to spend £12.50 on a single eyeshadow so if you really want to try them, I suggest looking at blog sales or ask for a Mac gift card for your birthday/christmas. I was lucky enough to win a gift card that I used to purchase the eyeshadows included in this post but I will definitely be picking up more shades, so if you have any suggestions then please leave them in the comments below.


  1. These are gorgeous and look well worth the money, I wear colours like this everyday xxx

  2. They really are lovely (: I used to wear bold colours but I think neutral shades like this look so much better on me. Satin taupe is my favourite (: xx
