MAC In the Shadows is a very cool-toned, medium-dark blue with a pearl finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $17.00 and contains 0.05 oz.

Editor's Review

In the Shadows is a bright, deep blue with cool undertones and a frosted sheen. It had good color payoff with a smooth, slightly slippery consistency (again, felt like there were more silicone or silicone derivatives in it than typical) that helped it go on more evenly and blend out better on the lid, but I felt like the finish wasn't as metallic once on and blended. It wore well for eight hours on me.

Claims / Ingredients

These saturated shadows in neutral and metallic shades and multiple finishes stay on all day long with non-creasing, eight-hour wear. The result: potent colour payoff that applies evenly, blends well and can be used wet or dry.

MAC In The Shadows is a beautiful blue that pops up on the lid. The color is quite sheer on first application, but opacity can be built easily. I like the versatility of bring able to get a sheer light blue or a bold denim blue. The color is satin, it looks mate on the lids, but with a little bit of extra something that doesn't make it flat. At first the shade looks like it's not blending well, but with a bit of work it blends without patches. It also works well with flat packing brushes, although you have to tap the brush well to avoid fallout. With a good eye primer the eyeshadow doesn't crease or fade during the day.
