My First MAC Eyeshadow: Bronze


You wouldn't have seen me talk much about MAC on here before, I'm not really sure why, but then again, why is there a reason that I would have? I feel like MAC is such a well loved brand - so much so that, whilst a lot of their products are excellent quality that do deserve the hype, many do not (in my opinion anyway) so I'm always a bit cautious when approaching a new purchase from their selection; although I have so say I am SO happy that MAC's 'Bronze' eyeshadow is now in my possession. It is beautiful. It's a gorgeous, highly pigmented, 'frosted' shade of bronze (obviously) that grasps a subtle auburn undertone which really makes my blue eyes... ugh I'm going to have to say it aren't I? 'pop' (shivers). The smooth, velvety consistency of this eyeshadow means that it can be easily manipulated to produce a variety of looks. A simple wash across the lid when you're in a rush? or in conjunction with almost every other bronze/gold/brown eyeshadow - I am sure that you will love the versatility of 'Bronze' as much as I do. I also find that it is very easy to build up and intensify when transitioning from a day-to-night look, appearing as though I have two different shades on my eyes at times (often a lighter, iridescent shade swept across the lid alongside a deeper, smokier bronze in the outside corners) which is hugely convenient when on the go.

I 100% recommend that you give 'Bronze' a check next time you're near a MAC counter/store. Whether you have fair, medium or dark skin I really think that this shade is one that could prove to be a staple for most people, especially during these summer 'sun-kissed skin' months!



























If you could choose only one, what MAC eyeshadow would you recommend? Leave it in the comments below! :)

  4. This looks gorgeous! The only MAC shadow I have is swimming which is a light green so I'd love a more neutral shade like this

    1. Swimming is such a vibrant yet wearable green (aka the perfect green aha), it is an unusual one! a great one though :) wish I had the confidence to rock such an outgoing shade! I am edging towards sumptuous olive though.. I don't feel like enough people wear green shadows!
