My First MAC Eyeshadows | Naked Lunch & Soba

2 Jun 2013

At the start of May I made my first MAC eye-shadow purchase. I've lusted over the counter for so long, but never plucked up the courage (or money!) to buy one. But now, I have the start of my own little quad. I went very neutral, as I generally stick to more neutral shades anyway. I also wanted to get good use out of the eye-shadows to justify my spending!

I plumped for Naked Lunch and Soba and I'm really happy with them both.

I apply Naked Lunch all over my lid, and then add Soba to the crease before blending it all out. I love the really subtle effect it gives, enhancing my eyes just enough without making too big of a statement. Exactly what I wanted for an everyday look. :)

As you'd expect from a MAC eye-shadow the formulation is great and I don't find it creases at all on my lids even after wearing them the whole day. The pigmentation is really strong on Soba and Naked Lunch has a lovely subtle shimmer making it the perfect combination. I'm definitely a happy shopper!

I definitely want to add to my collection now, especially to complete my quad. I have my eye on Woodwinked at the moment, but maybe I should be more adventurous? What do you think? Any recommendations? :)
