MAC Once Upon a Time Eyeshadow

MAC Once Upon a Time Eyeshadow
MAC Once Upon a Time Eyeshadow

MAC Once Upon a Time Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “metallic vanilla” with a Veluxe Pearl finish. It’s a soft beige with a moderately frosted finish. bareMinerals Libation is darker. Wet ‘n’ Wild Sparkle ‘Til Morning #5 is similar but more frosted. MAC Jaunty is more golden.

When this showed up in a holiday palette, I found it very sheer. That was not the case here–this eyeshadow is so, so much better as a single than it ever was in the palette. The color payoff is dead-on with true-to-pan, opaque color. It has a soft texture that goes on as smoothly as silk and blends out easily. The versatility/use of this shade is going to depend on your skin tone; on me, it’s very close to my natural lid color, so I don’t know how often I’d use it myself, but I thought the color payoff and texture were really stellar here.  I wore it on the inner lid and on the brow bone as a highlighter, and it was slightly faded along the brow bone after eight hours but mostly intact on the lid (no primer).
