MAC Nudes & Metallics Eyeshadows (Part 1)

MAC Nudes & Metallics Eyeshadows ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) include eight shades in total, and these are four of them. I grouped these four together as they were all in the Nudes family. This post features: Bare Minimum (sheer soft pinky nude with pearl), Body Conscious (*sheer warm mid-tone nude), Exposed (sheer neutral mid-tone nude), and Glimpse of Flesh (sheer warm pink nude).

Bobbi Brown Taupe Sparkle Eyeshadow

Bobbi Brown Taupe Sparkle Eyeshadow ($28.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a yellowy, medium-dark brown with a dirty champagne sparkle/shimmer. I don’t quite see taupe–I think it’s too warm-toned, too golden and brown to be a true taupe. It’s yellower than Bobbi Brown Cement. Too Faced Cinnamon Sugar is browner. MAC Cactus Thorn is similar in color but has a more pearled finish. Dior Golden Savannah #1 is darker and has a satin finish. Urban Decay Suspect is browner and darker.

Benefit Milk It Longwear Powder Eyeshadow

Benefit Milk It Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “pearly white.” It’s a neutral white with a pearly, metallic finish. There are a lot of similar white eyeshadows, but here were a few that I thought I’d mention specifically: Urban Decay Polyester Bride has a similar finish but is a touch less stark; bareMinerals Silhouette is less metallic; and NARS Self Portrait 2 is cooler-toned.

MAC Embrace Me Eyeshadow

MAC Embrace Me Eyeshadow ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “soft pink [with a satin finish].” It’s a bold, deepened raspberry pink with a matte finish–it may be listed as a satin, but it read very matte when I applied it! MAC More Amour is more subdued, less pink. MAC Tease with Ease is cooler-toned, pinker, and satiny. MAC passionate is barely warmer–a little brighter.

MAC Silly Eyeshadow

MAC Silly Eyeshadow ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “clean blue pink [with a frost finish].” It’s a light-medium pink with blue undertones and a mostly matte finish (there is no frost in sight). MAC Dynamic Duo #4 is a bit lighter (and so much sheerer/drier that they’re not easy to compare). Guerlain Boulevard du Montparnasse #3 is similar in color but frosted. MAC for Miss Piggy looks rather similar in the pan (but it had poorer quality, so they don’t look as much alike swatched). MAC Feather Pink is slightly lighter and has a satiny finish.
