The Review: MAC Vanilla Eyeshadow

MAC Vanilla Eyeshadow, £12.50 here
I am a huge fan of MAC eyeshadows. There are many a shadow product that I love but for me MAC just seem to cover everything. From all their different finishes, to all the shades you are sure to find a colour you love! I think I will do a post soon on my most used MAC shadows, and my wishlist for future colours. I really want  to begin making my own 14 shadow palette but it is going to take a long time! Anyway onto the purpose of this post- MAC Vanilla eyeshadow.


I discovered a love for this shadow after watching Tanya Burr regularly use it in her YouTube tutorials. Now I could introduce you to Tanya Burr, however if your reading this post chances are you already know who she is! But for those small percentage of you that don't  she is one of my all time favourite beauty bloggers/vloggers and YouTube guru. She is a massive inspiration to me and one of the reasons I love blogging so much!! Here is a link to her blog, and her youtube chanel as you need to check her out. She is amazang. (spelt that way on purpose for you brainy lot!)



Anway #2- I really love MAC's Vanilla eyeshadow because of its finish. It isn't shiny it is quite matte, and I use it most regularly as a base for a light and pretty eyeshadow look, but mostly use it to highlight my browbone and the tearduct area of my eyes. It is so lightening and brightening and really helps to accentuate these areas. If I am feeling different, I sometimes use it blended underneath my eyes with darker colours on the outer edge to really open up my eye and make them look bigger and brighter! It especially comes in handy for an evening look! It is really pigmented, it applies evenly and blends so well onto the lid, and lasts all day. I like to apply it underneath my eyebrow and the inner corners of my eyes with a small tip brush, and onto my lid with a fluffy blending blush. The MAC #217 brush is brilliant but Crown brushes to an excellent dupe for a fraction of the price.



This one is an individual one which is £12.50, but you can get this shadow in the pro-palette too which means it is only £10 (here) as it comes without the packaging. But, obviously if you don't have a pro palette and you want it in this form, just make sure you look after it as you it won't have any packaging to protect it! You can get a 4 eyeshadow palette from MAC if you're not looking to go full board for a 14 shadow palette. Just have a look online and it will give you more information!



I do hope you enjoyed this post. Happy October everyone!
