MAC Styledriven: Pro Longwear Eyeshadows (Part 3)

MAC Pro Longwear Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.) is supposed to wear for eight hours with a “silky, creamy texture” that yields “maximum color impact.” It’s also designed to be blendable and buildable. As a reviewer, I am endlessly pleased that MAC gave definite wear times on these–it’s so much easier to assess whether the product was successful!

There a whopping sixteen shades released in MAC Styledriven, and because of the amount of photos, I’ve split them over three parts. This third (and final!) part includes: Styledriven (pale white blue), Sunny Outlook (bright golden yellow), Sweet Satisfaction (soft neutral beige), Tease with Ease (bright fuchsia), Thru the Night (deep navy), and Weathered (dirty blue grey).

  • Styledriven is a pale sky blue with a soft, frosted finish. This has a frost finish. What I really like about this shade is it’s that perfect sky blue without being chalky or powdery–which is difficult to achieve–and definitely outshines MAC Sky Blue. It’s a touch bluer than Bare Escentuals Illusion.
  • Sunny Outlook is a medium-dark yellow with a shimmer-sheen. This has a satin finish. It doesn’t lean too orange and it’s more like a yellow than it is a gold (and the lack of metallic finish reinforces this). It is similar to Wet ‘n’ Wild Bright Idea. MAC Bright Sunshine is yellower–less golden.
  • Sweet Satisfaction is a soft beige-y brown with a champagne sheen. This has a frost finish. It’s very similar to MAC Grain, while MAC Arena is a bit darker.
  • Tease with Ease is a medium-dark raspberry pink with a soft shimmer-sheen. This has a frost finish. It’s a touch lighter than NARS Carvaggio. Urban Decay Woodstock is less red and more intense. MAC Bright Fuchsia is deeper and brighter.
  • Thru the Night is a purple-tinted navy blue. This has a frost finish. It has decent color payoff, but it’s a bit dry to work with. I feel like every brand has been coming out with some variation on this color. It’s a bit purpler than Make Up For Ever #81. It’s somewhere between MAC Deep Truth and Contrast. theBalm Risque Renee is deeper. Wet ‘n’ Wild Earth Looks Small From Down Here is a touch bluer. It is similar to MAC Blue Storm and Bare Escentuals Climax.
  • Weathered is a stormy blue-tinted gray with multi-colored shimmer. This has a frost finish. Of all the shades, I felt this one was the most complex and unique. It’s blue, it’s gray, it’s multi-faceted in the way the shimmer plays together. I couldn’t think of dupes for it! Inglot #387 has a similar blue-gray thing going on but it’s much, much lighter and grayer. Make Up For Ever #147 is bluer.

A-
It's a good eyeshadow overall, with some shades being really great and others being good, but there aren't any major duds here. The color payoffs are good across the board with a workable texture that's blendable.

  7. amanda

    love the styledriven, i think its surprisingly wearable for a sky blue.. would u say the dark blue shade here is very close to either deep truth or blue flame? or even the dark blue from Peacocky or the navy from semi precious..

  8. Kathleen

    Is there a reason why the swatch image for Styledriven in the gallery is a picture of the label on the back of the container instead of the actual swatch? :)

    Thank you for posting dupes on all of these. I realized I already have similar colors to the shades I was considering – you saved me money!

    Hey Christine, do you know if Sweet Satisfaction is anything like Benefit’s Fawn Over Me or Birthday Suit? I’m more curious about similarities in color and tone rather than finish and texture. Thanks!

  12. joy

    Which is brighter please? sunny outlook or goldmine?

  13. finessence808
