First of all, (on my finger to the left) I purchased the powder eyeshadow early this year; it actually being my first eye product from MAC. My immediate impressions of this product were great- the packaging was steardy yet size-appropriate and you got quite a lot of shadow. MAC themselves describe this product as a highly pigmented shadow which applies easily and blends well. I agree 100% with this description, however the application of this eye shadow (like any other) depends hugely on the brush you apply it with, as this could make or break the look. I brought this eye shadow in the shade Honey Lust which is a sparkly golden brown with quite alot of glitter in; definitely not a matte shade. Colour wise, I haven't had a problem, aside from the fact that this isn't particularly a day to day shade to wear. Saying this I did buy this to show off in the evening, for example to wear to parties or fancy meals out!
My second MAC eye shadow (on my finger to the right) is a paint pot which I got at the airport only a few weeks back. Out of the two, I must say I prefer this type of shadow. Not only is this colour very well pigmented, it creates seamless coverage over the lids which is nor cakey or too thick. This MAC paint pot is in the shade Vintage Selection which is a medium frosted, dirty peach colour. I chose this shade because it looks great alone on my lids, whilst being an easy, not too bright colour to pull off either during the day or of an evening.
