MAC Cosmetics Essential Eyeshadows.........

Hi All,

MAC cosmetics are one of the brands that always make best sellers. They are well known in the fashion circuit for their enormous and vivid range of color cosmetics that they offer from a damsel to a hard core fashionista.
When I go to my local MAC store at Juhu Shoppers Stop I see a lot of confused faces and most of the time perplexed and hyper excited ones too. The reason being not able to choose a color from the wide array of colors that are displayed for eyeshadows, blushes, lipglosses and many more. MAC is known for having the largest number of foundations in the Indian market and that makes it more specific yet more confusing.
Today I have decided to make a post on the best shades of eyeshadows that MAC could offer to an Indian woman. Most of them have already been heard somewhere or read in some magazine but I believe shopping for MAC eyeshadows with a proper guide is truly an overwhelming experience.
The shadows that I am going to talk about are the regular ones and not the limited editions though I have most of the latter, with the thought that they won’t come back again. These eyeshadows are retailed as singles for Rs.820 for 1.5 g and the same comes in just a pan without its carton for Rs.620 for 1.5 g. MAC also offers empty palettes of 4 and 15 eyeshadows for Rs.340 and Rs.840 respectively in which you could buy the pans and make your customized palettes yourself. These customized palettes are easy to carry, look very professional and are completely user friendly. Good for makeup artists and beauticians who have to carry a lot of makeup and this enables them to organize their cases properly.
I have my own favorites and they are one the most used eyeshadows in my vanity case.
So let’s see some of the best eyeshadows MAC offers for Indian women: -
(These are the names of the eyeshadows that I’d be giving)
Folie: - Intense plum-brown (satin)
Pink Venus: - Washed pink (lustre)
Star Violet: - Earthy touched pinky-brown plum fusion (veluxe pearl)
Sushi Flower: - Soft bright pink coral with opalescent pink shimmer (satin)
Cranberry: - Reddish plum with pink shimmer (frost)

Beautiful iris: - Fresh lavender with sheen (veluxe pearl)
Parfait Amour: - Vivid bluish-violet duochrome with violet opalescent shimmer (frost)

Cork: - Muted golden brown (satin)
Honey lust: - Bronze dipped peach (lustre)

Coppering: - Hi reflective orange copper (veluxe pearl)
Carbon: - Intense black (matte)

Please be careful of duplicates sold in the entire country. Try buying products from authentic MAC flagship stores in India and after surveying a few unauthentic ones I have found out that the pricing is higher than the actual price. Please do not buy if instead of names you see numbers on the eyeshadows.
If you happen to pass by at Juhu Shoppers stop where I shop the most of my MAC stuff please ask for Neetu or Shaily who are one of the most talented and warm hearted companions at MAC you would ever see. Please do give them the reference in case needed and they would help you even to get a makeover done (at a certain cost that would be reimbursed as products later on).
Next time I shall write about the essential MAC blushes. Till then…………
