MAC Eyeshadow in Flip: Review & Swatches


Hi All,

I’m back with another MAC eyeshadow and this time its another multi-tasker shade called Flip! I bought this along with Nylon intending Nylon to be a silvery highlighter and Flip to be a golden hued highlighter. Read on to know how it fared.

My take on MAC Eyeshadow in Flip:

  • Color: Flip is a frost finish eyeshadow which can be  described as a peachy gold eyeshadow with golden shimmer. Frankly, this reminds me of MAC CCB in Hush..but with a golden hue.

  • Price: INR 720 for the refillmac flip eyeshadow review+ mac flip eyeshadow
  • Pigmentation & Texture: The shade is decently pigmented, although it does tend to have a tad bit more fallout. But I have realised that the fallout occurs when I try sweeping this shade on my lids. So now I just pat it on to avoid this.

At the beginning I called this a multitaskng shade. The reason for this is that it can be used:

  • As a highlighter on the brow bone and also on the nose and the rest of the face. It won’t look OTT if used right.
  • Can be used as an  all-over lid shade.
  • Can be used right in the middle on the lid for a shimmery look or to amp up a simple look
  • Perfect to be worn in the inner corners of the eyes
  • Perfect for Indian weddings
