I don’t usually buy single shadows. I have a couple of them though but I prefer trios/quads and palettes. I like to play around with colors and those are so much fun.
Well, today I have a single shadow here with me, which happens to be in my favorite color “Mint” so I couldn’t say no to it.
Presenting MAC Frost Eye Shadow in the shade Surreal.

My take on MAC Frost Eye Shadow Surreal :
MAC Surreal has a cute packaging, nothing over the top though. It comes in a little round tub with a flip top, which has the MAC logo printed on it. A sticker with the shade name has been placed at the bottom of the tub. The peekaboo lid makes it easy to sort them if you have a crazy pile of shadows. It is made out of plastic hence makes it easy while traveling.
Color: Love the shade! Surreal is a beautiful bluish green mint color. It has a golden frost finish, which looks gorgeous in light. Can be worn during day or night.
Earlier, I had reviewed a shadow from MAC Eyeshadow Steamy and both of them are quite similar. So if you have either one of them, then I would suggest not going for the other.
Texture: Mac does justice to all of their products, no doubt about that. This shadow is powdery in texture; it glides on softly over my lids and doesn’t crease or tug. Since Surreal has a frosty finish, it adds that extra glamorous touch on your look without any fallout, which is great. I hate shadows with fallouts; it completely ruins a good eye makeup.
Pigmentation: Has a decent color payoff in a single swatch. But I would prefer going for multiple swipes for the color to show up in full intensity. It would suit all kinds of skin tones.
Staying power: It stays put around 3 to 4 hours on me without primer. If applied with one, then it would last longer.
What I like about MAC Frost Eye Shadow Surreal:
- Stunning color
- Good pigmentation
- Glides well
- Not gritty
- No Creasing
- Suits all skin tones
What I don’t like about MAC Frost Eye Shadow Surreal :
- Staying power could have been better.
