Favorite MAC Eyeshadow

I'm really excited to write this post because I am OBSESSED with this beautiful new eyeshadow I picked up at MAC recently. This has been a strong favorite lately and I'm very excited to share this beautiful color with you, that I have often overlooked in the past.

MAC Eyeshadow: Greensmoke - $15

I think this shadow is absolutely gorgeous! I goes on so subtly. At first glance, it looks pretty dark and a little intimidating if you are a neutral eyeshadow gal like myself. But it is so gorgeous and goes on very light and is totally buildable!

I like to use a shadow brush to apply, but I also like to take either an angled eyeliner brush or a smaller smudge brush to apply under the bottom lashes as well. This shadow is great to do a sexy smokey eye. I found this a perfect smokey color because I typically reach for browns, but this shadow allowed me to test another range of colors, but still turned out so pretty!

Below is a swatch of this gorgeous eyeshadow. It goes on so soft you really have to build it up to get the darker side of it. The swatch below is approx 4 layers of rubbing my finger in the product and applying to the back of my hand and as you can see, it is STILL very light. I actually love that about this product!

I am toying with the idea of doing a makeup tutorial using this shadow, so if that is something you'd be interested be sure to let me know! Also, if you know of any great dupes, please feel free to share as I'm always looking for great alternatives!

What is your smokey eyeshadow go-to?


  1. I would love to see a tutorial with this, it does look a little intimidating in the pot so to see it in a makeup look is a plus!

  2. Very pretty eyeshadow. I would love to see a swatch of it because I'm wondering how green does it show up? I really LOVE greens.

    1. Hi Janine, thank you for your suggestion! I completely forgot to add that in. So I updated this post with a swatch! I love how sheer it goes on, its really buildable! Hope you like it!
