Review MAC frost eyeshadows in Phloof!, nocturnelle and satin taupe.

I didn't want to review too much of MAC products because I feel every beauty junkie out there knows already a lot about it. But I think that most finishes in MAC eyeshadows are really a must have and the color range is really great. I will review my (limited) stash based on the finish. I do not own eyeshadow in all the finishes, because MAC -like most brands- have there god and not so good finishes. Today I will start with my eyeshadows in the Frost finish.

That eyeshadow really belongs in the frost category because it is super frosty and definitely the frostiest eyeshadow I own! Unlike a lot of pale eyeshadow, the pigmentation is great and it applies quite opaque. When you put it on this looks like a nice pink-beige. It's not that easy to blend, but it stays put and doesn't fallout. It's a great inner corner highlight and a good lid shade for fair and light skin.

I had this one in a christmas palette but it is part of the permanent collection. It's a pretty reddish purple with a frost finish. This one is not overly frosty i'd say it's more like a pearl. This one is heavily buildable and blendable. It's a must for purple lovers!

Satin Taupe

This is the most famous eyeshadow from mac. It's a pearly taupe color with a mauve reflection. It can be used as a stand alone eyeshadow, on the crease or on the lid depending on your skin tone and preferences. It's always nice to own eyeshadows you can wear by themselves. This is easy to blend and the staying power is great. No fallout on that one either.

You can see it here how frosty phloof! is compared to satin taupe

The frost eyeshadows are among my favorite from mac. They look also very good when you mix them up with matte shades. Unlike certain other finish from mac those are pigmented, blendable and they stay on like a rock. I would really recommend them!
