MAC Eyeshadow in Sable: Review & Swatches


Hi All,

If you’ve read about my Bday haul here, then you must have seen this eyeshadow I’d picked up…I’m a huge neutral eyeshadow lover and never miss out on a chance to get a new neutral in my kitty. So today, I’ll be reviewing my latest eyeshadow love after MAC Trax…MAC Sable! ๐Ÿ™‚

MAC Eyeshadow Sable Review Product Pan+mac pigment

My take on MAC Eyeshadow in Sable:

  • Color: Sable is described as a Gold Plum with bronze pearl.

  • Price: INR 720 for the refill & INR 900 for a full pan
  • Pigmentation & Texture: The pigmentation is soo worth it…One would need such a tiny bit and unlike matte finishes which look dry or other frost finishes, this is amazing…I usually don’t like using frost finish shadows on my lids coz they look a bit chalky and don’t go on too well. But for a wonder, this looks perfect! It feel absolutely velvetty on my lids ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Staying Power: This stays on my lids for about 8-9hrs and this is the max I’ve worn it or else I’m sure this would last even longer ๐Ÿ™‚

Its no secret that I like neutral shades and this is one of those shades which tends to add a li’l pizzaz to any look…It’s not totally plummy nor absolutely bronze..Its a perfect in between shade that would suit all skintones. I use it as a lid color as well as a crease shade and love it both ways.

Incidentally this happens to be a close dupe of the shade Toasted from the Urban Decay Naked Palette..which kinda makes me happier ;-).
