MAC Eyeshadow Swatches – Grays, Silvers, & Blacks

My weekend present to all of you are swatches of (most) MAC’s permanent eyeshadows — on skin! If you’ve been reading the blog for awhile, you may have caught when we did posts of these, but on paper (here and here). Due to the amount of requests for skin swatches, here they are! :)

Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow/Liner Photos, Swatches, Review

I found that they did indeed live up to their name — they didn’t crease or smudge on me at any point during the day, when worn alone or as a base. I will say they did seem to perform better when used as a base, but I imagine most cream-based products do. Since I didn’t notice any creasing or fading when they were worn alone, I think they held up incredibly without anything on top, too. All of the shades I tried had a light sheen or subtle shimmer to them, which was just fine with me, but I’d definitely love to see Benefit add some more matte shades to the line-up in the future.

If you’re a big fan of MAC paint pots, I think you’d adore these! I found these more blendable/buildable than some paint pots, and I didn’t have as much trouble blending shadows on top of the deeper shades as I have with some of MAC’s darker colored paint pots (e.g. Nice Vice).
