MAC; Naked Lunch, Woodwinked & Charcoal Brown


Oot Ohh!
I've been ordering from that dreading place called MAC again, oops.
I did need some more seen as though I don't have many & I really enjoyed my last purchase, it kinder brought me back for more.
What I need next is one of their refill palettes. Seen as though the collection is finally starting to grow, yippee!
 I've not included a make-up look with these shadows in this post, as I thought I could save that for another day.

Naked Lunch
What type of eyeshadow finish is it? Frost
What shade is it? To me it's a peachy, champagne colour
Would you purchase it again? Definitely!
When I wear this eyeshadow I feel like it makes my eyes look more awake if you get me and I have to have a second glance in the mirror when I walk past. That made me cringe typing that haha! I meant at the eyeshadow itself and not at me of course.
'Naked Lunch' looks so pretty when applied all over the lid of the eye, it applies a light amount of colour and shimmer. You can probably tell in the swatches included in this post.
What type of eyeshadow finish is it? Velvet pearl
What shade is it? Medium bronze with a mild orange undertone
Would you purchase it again? yes, yes, yes!
I like to pair 'Woodwinked' with a vanilla, or yellow based light shadow. That's if I'm not wearing it all over the lid. Mind you I always change how I wear this one, like today I'm wearing 'Naked Lunch' with 'Woodwinked' blended into the crease.
Charcoal Brown
What type of eyeshadow finish is it? matte
What shade is it? A beautiful matte brown ashy colour
Would you purchase it again? couldn't live without it... so that's a yes!
I use this eyeshadow mostly to fill in my eyebrows, it works like a dream. It's the perfect colour for my brows. Previous to this shadow I were using a Rimmel eyebrow pencil, but I felt like it made my eyebrows appear to harsh (like slugs had been drawn on my face). This shadow when applied with a flat brush makes them appear more natural. It also works beautifully as a crease colour, you can build it up to get a darker effect for a more smoky eye look.

Overall I am really happy with my new MAC eyeshadows and the last one's I posted about too. They are all must haves to me and I will repurchase if I ever hit pan (which I hope that's not for a while). I think I've built up some kind of addiction to MAC over the last few weeks. I've already got some more shadows waiting in my favourites/basket ready for my next purchase. I also really like the look of the MAC paint pots, but I haven't tried any before. Are they as good as every makes out to be?

Now I'm in need of some neutral matte eyeshadows as I don't have many in my little collection.
You know for those days where you don't want to wear anything shimmery and you want to tone it down a tad. Matte's always look nice on a your vintage inspired make-up looks too, so I'm desperately after some.
Does anyone know of any must have MAC matte eyeshadows?
Let me know in the comments below please dolls, thank you <3

The questions I answered about each eyeshadow are my own opinion.
You may think different to me, but I go by what colour or shade the eyeshadow is through my own eyes and on my own skin.


  1. Love the mac paint pots, bare study is my favorite!! If you're looking at more shadows I'm going to tempt you more haha you need nylon if your life and for matte shadows vanilla is beautiful! It's the perfect inner corner highlight! Hehe cxxx

    1. ahh, i'm so glad that I've purchased them though babe! I've had a lot of refill eyeshadows on my wish list for TOO long. Yeah, definitely! I will never use anything else on my brows, it's that good :) xx

  12. Woodwinked is one of my favourite eysshadows from Mac. I wear it a lot during the fall and winter :) I would love to try naked launch. Such a pretty colour.

    xoxo, charlene

    1. I'm definitely going to get my wear out of it over the next few months :) I've been wearing Naked Lunch pretty much every day it's so so pretty! xx

  13. i think you are going to like their paint pots :D i havent really bought one but ive tried a couple of them before, you might like rubenesque and bare study, those are some of my faves. btw an off topic have you tried the YSL lipsticks? i figured you seem like someone who would like those. its not available here but im going to buy some online soon. cant decide which color to try first :D

  14. Slugs drawn on your face - I can imagine! :p At least you found a product which proved a much better alternative. Surprisingly I have never tried MAC eyeshadows - though I've been tempted by a lot of their shades, especially Patina and Satin Taupe.

  15. I LOVE woodwinked - its my favourite eyeshadow out of all the MAC eyeshadows I have :) there aren't many eyeshadows I love more than my MAC ones to be honest aha
