MAC Favorites / Neutral Eyeshadows

I've been wanting to write about my favorite neutral MAC eye shadows for the past week but either it was super cloudy out and would just be pointless to even try to take decent photos or when it was nice and sunny I was out enjoying the weather. Today I was finally able to get some good photos and here they are!  I would repurchase all of these gorgeous shades.


Top: Phloof!, Orb, Naked Lunch, Grain, Wedge
Middle: Era, All That Glitters, Sable, Patina, Omega
Bottom: Femme-Fi, Retro-Speck, Woodwinked, Texture, Brown Down


L-R: 
Phloof! - My go-to inner corner color of choice, it helps define and brighten eyes with a little sparkle!
Orb - Great all over or brow bone color for neutral looks.
Naked Lunch - Perfect as all over or on inner corners, this is definitely one of my go-to 'lazy day' shades
Grain - My daily lid color, goes with anything and everything
Wedge - Love it on my crease for blending soft, daytime smokey eye


L-R
Era - Go-to taupe.
All That Glitters - It's in my daily MAC quad, need I say more?
Sable - Beautiful mix of plum, gold and bronze. One of my favorite fall shades and looks great by itself!
Patina - See All That Glitters' description.
Omega - I use it for blending out crease colors in the same family.


L-R:
Femme-Fi - only one of my many favorite all over colors, great for daytime.
Retrospeck - very wearable shimmery light gold also looks great on inner corners with a darker look.
Woodwinked - Favorite coppery-gold that looks beautiful on lower lash line
Texture - an absolute must on crease when I'm doing a smokey look with Print (which is also a neutral favorite of mine but I talk about it all the time that I didn't even feel the need to include it in this post :))
Brown Down - Perfect brown for smokey brown look, love it on the crease and lower lash line.

What are your favorite neutral MAC eye shadows?

  9. Aww thanks Yu, you're so sweet :) Both get a lot of love from me, ok Grain gets the most love between the two! Were you able to decide between Print and Scene? It's a tough choice :)

  10. You've got a gorgeous neutral MAC collection!! I'm loving "Texture" so some reason...I think it's because I like that color in clothing. Super pretty!! I actually don't own any MAC shadows...but will have to check some of these out!!

  17. I must say that MAC is topnotch when it comes to shade selection. As an eyeshadow addict, it is very difficult to name just one shade as a fave! I also love the All That Glitters palette. Patina is GORGEOUS!

  30. Thank you Iveta, glad to know we have some favorites in common :) Thanks so much for the follow, you have a great blog! :)

  31. Thanks Evi, glad you liked it! I think Mulch, Twinks and Satin Taupe make great everyday all over the lid colors, you should check them out. Twinks is a little plummy, Mulch is brown that has a little red to it, Satin Taupe is taupe but on me it looks a plummy brown. Hope I could help :)
