I was given one of these MAC eyeshadows a while ago and recently decided to look into buying a new one for myself.
I'm not a massive eyeshadow fan but I do like some neutral shades for occasional use. I had a look at buying another of these and found they were selling for £12.00 RRP. I couldn't believe my eyes because this is a single shadow and only a 1.5g pot. The price is ridiculous obviously, but is the product any good?
Well, it comes in a £2 coin size black plastic pot. The design is synonymous with MAC who tend to opt for a simple and sleek black packaging. There is a clear pane in the top of the flip lid which shows you the colour and also has the brand name across it. The branding isn't in your face which I like, though the design is quite easily recognisable as being MAC because they are so well known. Inside there sits the dish of shadow and on the bottom of the pot are instructions and ingredients. Overall I think the design is great, simple and very chic. They are the perfect size for travel and look great as well as being functional.
The eyeshadow is a lovely creamy powder. It has a silky feel to it and a great consistency. I was given the shadow in 'aquadisiac' which is a turquoise shade - not my ideal choice but nice for special occasions. I find the shadow wears very well, stays on for most of the day without collecting in your eye lines. It also applies easily with a finer or brush, it isn't too dusty so you don't need to worry about getting it on your mascara.
All in all it is a great eyeshadow, one of the best I've ever used. BUT, and it's a bit but, it's £12.00 which to me seems frankly ludicrous for a single pot of eyeshadow. Admittedly because I don't use eyeshadows very much it would last me a lifetime but I just cannot justify spending this money on something I use so occasionally. I'll stick to cheaper brands, thanks.
A nice eyeshadow but really not worth the price.
Summary: Too high a price tag for me.
