Review: MAC Eye Shadow in Woodwinked


This has to be one of my favourite eye shadows of all time (I’m sure you are aware that this review is going to be a super positive one now!). MAC’s eye shadow in Woodwinked is described as a warm antique gold. It’s a beautiful colour that brings out brown eyes perfectly well. It’s also a perfect colour to wear on its own or with a smokey eye. This eye shadow is from their veluxe pearl range. Which means that the shadows have a pearly sheen to them and they’re a little frosty in finish (you can see the swatches). Initially a co-worker, who always raved about this, recommended this eye shadow to me. When I went into the MAC store the first time to purchase this, it was sold out and that’s when I knew this shadow is a favourite for a good reason. The texture of this eye shadow is buttery smooth. In fact, when I used my fingers to swatch it I was unsure about the staying power of this shadow but I was wrong. The longevity on this shadow is great, especially if you use it with an eye shadow primer. It didn’t budge and it stayed sheeny all night long. If you want this colour to pop even more, you can use a light coloured cream shadow base and this colour truly pops out! I love using this with a smokey eye because it gives my eyes a very sultry look. At $19(CDN), this is a phenomenal eye shadow. It’s buttery, soft, silky, smooth and gorgeous on application. One swatch gives you a good amount of opaque colour (you can also build it up with layers). The longevity is great and I’ve always found MAC eye shadows to be the cream of the crop. This colour is beautiful. It’s not your typical bright gold nor is it a dark gold. It’s almost a burnished gold that has no fallout! You can purchase this at any MAC counter/store/online!
