My MAC Eyeshadows (With Swatches)

MAC eyeshadows have always been a bit of a cult product in the beauty world and I can definitely see why – they are really good quality and reasonably priced when compared to similar quality eyeshadows from other brands. I have a little obsession with them and within the space of 2 years, I went from having a single MAC eyeshadow to 22 of them!

MAC Eyeshadow Swatches

They can also be quite overwhelming due to the huge variety of shades available, so I thought I would do a little video showing you swatches of all the MAC eyeshadows I own. To me, video swatches are the most helpful ones because you can see the colour and pigmentation of the eyeshadow more clearly. I decided to keep this short with only swatches and a brief description of each eyeshadow, but do let me know if you’d like to see reviews of any eyeshadows in particular and I’ll write up a few words about them.


This video was filmed with 100% natural light (no softboxes) and it wasn’t colour corrected, so what you see is exactly what the shades look like on my skin in real life. Please bear in mind that depending on your skin tone, the eyeshadows may look a bit different on you, so make sure you swatch in store if you’re unsure about a particular shade.

Below is a list of all the eyeshadows I mentioned along with the descriptions pulled out of the MAC website. You can buy MAC eyeshadows from: MAC website, Debenhams, House of Fraser and Selfridges.
