MAC Shadowy Lady is a slightly cool-toned, very dark purple with a matte finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $17.00 and contains 0.05 oz.

Editor's Review

Shadowy Lady is a deep purple with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable pigmentation from semi-opaque to full coverage with two layers. The texture was drier, thinner, and more firmly-pressed in the pan, so it did take a bit of extra effort to apply and even out the application. It stayed on nicely for eight hours on me before I noticed any fading.

Shadowy Lady is one of those MAC more stiff/dry matte eye shadows. The formula is slightly harder to pick up with brushes, has almost no fallout and it's quite tricky to blend. It's easy to get a somewhat patchy result, but it's a workable formula with good brushes and blending skills in the end. It's a buildable formula, I can easily play from sheer to full opacity. In the pan the color is a cool toned dark plum, but once applied in a look it becomes a generic dark color, vaguely distinctly plum. It's a versatile color, works from blending in the crease to packing on the eyelid. I like it better as an eyeliner, applied closely to the lash line; it adds definition with that extra something of not being a full black. Once applied it stays put all day, no creasing or longevity issues, especially when using a primer.
