Smoky Gold

MAC Smoky Gold Snow Ball Eye Bag ($39.50 for 0.55 oz.) includes an easy-to-wear duo featuring a light gold and dark, warm taupe along with a dark brown eyeliner and mascara. For review purposes, the mascara is not included in the review. The eyeshadows were fairly easy to work with, and I expect if you normally use a primer or like to use your shimmery eyeshadows with a dampened brush, you’ll enjoy the eyeshadows quite a bit. The eyeliner was comfortable to use and long-wearing.

Just Gleaming

Just Gleaming is a light, peachy gold with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had semi-sheer coverage dry and opaque coverage applied with a dampened brush. The texture was smoother and easier to work with using a dampened brush, too, as it felt a little dry and more loosey pressed otherwise, which led to some fallout and sheerness in practice. On me, it wore well for five hours applied dry and seven hours applied with a dampened brush.

Snowdusk

Snowdusk is a dark, taupe-brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff and a more pearl-like finish when applied dry, When I used a dampened brush (just water!), it had opaque coverage and a stronger, more metlalic finish. The texture was soft, blendable, and a touch dry but not powdery or prone to sheering out. The eyeshadow started to fade on me after seven hours of wear (regardless of application method).

Photogravure

Photogravure is a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good pigmentation in a single stroke, which was buildable to full coverage with half of a layer or less. The texture was smooth, creamy without being too wet, and easy to apply to the waterline or lower lash line as it never tugged or felt rough. It lasted for nine hours on me before fading slightly.

I’d imagine that this would make for a nice, easy glowy eye look if one just pulled in a matte browbone and possibly a transition shade. Not 100% decided on this set one way or the other for myself, but if it goes on clearance later in the season….

This is a really nice set and perfectly themed for the holidays. It would make a really nice gift for any makeup user….even though I have a ton of stuff, it is even tempting me, though I’d probably do the “mom thing” and get it for my daughter instead.
