MAC Eyeshadow in ‘Vanilla’

This is, without a doubt, one of MAC’s best-selling shades. It’s a velvet-finish shadow described as a “peachy-ivory with reflects”. I’m not sure what ‘reflects’ are, but this isn’t a shimmery/glitter/flashy shade by any means. It’s a couple shades lighter than the swatch on www.maccosmetics.com, as always, so beware those silly online swatches. I’m starting to notice very little difference between the velvet, satin, and matte-squared finishes! All feel soft, apply easily, and stay well.

This shadow is a multi-tasker. I use it as a highlighter for my eyes, though you can use this anywhere on your face or body! Such a stunning, natural shade that really stands out under the brows or by the corner of your eye. I also use it to cover up mistakes if I use too much of a dark color and can’t get it to blend out. The ‘Vanilla’ softens it without adding another noticeable color to the mix. My savior for making a smokey eye! I can’t live without this shade, honestly.
