4 Must-Have MAC Teal Eyeshadows
About the Temptalia Must-Haves Series
A series of posts showcasing must-have products from MAC Cosmetics’ permanent line of products. Selections are based on quality, universality, uniqueness amongst the line, and the like. Limited edition shades are deliberately excluded to make buying easier. Readers’ comments act as a supplement to these lists of their favorites and must-haves. You can find the entire series here.
Shimmermoss eyeshadow is my absolute favorite teal eyeshadow. It’s vibrant, pigmented, and it goes on effortlessly. It blends easily with other shades (especially golds and blues), and I’ve used it so much and yet it doesn’t even have much of a dip in it–that’s how rich in color it is.
Steamy eyeshadow is kind of a dirty green-teal color. I find it to be in the teal family, but it definitely has green undertones to it. I like it for its duality.
Newly Minted eyeshadow is a matte finish semi-dusky teal. It’s quite “minty” in a way. While my all-time favorite Melody eyeshadow (long discontinued) holds my heart in this type of teal, Newly Minted is a very close runner-up.
Aquadisiac eyeshadow is a light, glittery aqua-teal shade. It’s one of the lightest teal colors MAC has come out with, and it is definitely a must if you like to wear teals or blues.
