Mac Bronze Eyeshadow Swatch, Review

This  eyeshadow may be bronze, but I’m all black and blue because of it! See, i was exiting one mall to go to the connecting one  just to buy Mac Bronze Eyeshadow and SPLAT!!! I walked into a glass door..HARD! Im talking full on collision that broke my shoes and injured my teeth. Infact if you go to  DLF Promenade Mall and see an imprint of lips on a glass door- that was me giving the door a full powered kiss as i smacked into it – ooh and if you wonder what pretty lipstick adorns that glass door-its Viva Glam Cyndi ;p. For what its worth though, i would walk into a glass door again just to have Mac Bronze Eyeshadow in my stash. Its just so darn bee-yoo-ti-ful!

Mac Bronze Eyeshadow is…well..bronze.  A  very pretty bronze actually- a molten golden brown with shimmer and is just a stunning, stunning color for outer corners , or even as an all over lid color if you are of a darker skin tone. Its one of my favourite mac eyeshadows and one that i love to pair with Indian outfits, using it with woodwinked or expensive pink.

For me, Mac Bronze defines what i call a “luxuriously rich” eyeshadow- the minute your finger hits the pan, its just intensely smooth, dark and pigmented. It just seems to melt like butter on touch and can be blended  with such ease, it makes you feel like Picasso or something. One swipe  with  even the cheapest of brushes and you get gorgeous vivid color on your eyelid! You also dont turn into a glitter monkey , because it has surprisingly little fallout given that it is a frost finish eyeshadow.

PS: Im fine now, except for a little bump on my head that i have named Rudolf! Honestly, when i look back at it now it was quite comical…how could i walk into a glass door!!!!

Overall Verdict: A+

Price: Rs 680 in refill form

Recommendation: Mac Bronze has got to be one of my absolute favourite eyeshadows – a stunning golden bronze with shimmer that looks great with indian wear. Its superbly pigmented, rich, and soft and buttery to blend ! Dream Shadow that!

Xuvious March 10, 2012 at 11:27 pm

Gosh! I hope you’re alright! I’m always looking out for things like that otherwise I end up tripping/bumping a lot… :p
I don’t have bronze (yet) but it would definitely suit festive looks.

Looks Great.. will buy this surely.. sad part is have to start savings for it.. Already expensive pink is in my list..


tanveer March 10, 2012 at 11:35 pm

OMG! I hope you are feeling ok! That’s gotta hurt :(


mehak March 10, 2012 at 11:39 pm

It did :( But i was so embarassed , that the embarassment kind of overtook the pain!!!


Sweet&Bitter March 10, 2012 at 11:35 pm

hope you are fine now……btw it reminds me a bit about the bronze shade in Maybelline Chai Latte but I think that is more golden..hae nah?


mehak March 10, 2012 at 11:38 pm

Ya that is more golden this is more brown -gold but yr right very similar, but the texture is sooooooo much better!


namita March 10, 2012 at 11:41 pm

Pooja@IBC March 11, 2012 at 12:04 am

Oh Gosh, hope you are okay now.. the lengths we go for our beauty fix, my friend recently rushed in to Body shop right round the closing hour, and in her rush didn’t see the glass panel and smacked her face pretty bad-it wasn’t a pretty sight with all that bruising… btw i must say all that bump & gore was worth this pretty pan of awesomeness,gorgeous color..i’m drooling now


DevilishAngel March 11, 2012 at 12:27 pm

DevilishAngel March 11, 2012 at 12:28 pm

jasleen March 11, 2012 at 2:04 pm

mehak March 11, 2012 at 10:24 pm

Haha she tried not to laugh, but i know all she ws doing ws staring at my bump


Krittika March 11, 2012 at 2:38 pm

Hahaha… Don’t worry you are not the only one… I managed to walk into my gym glass doors once – total Saint Gobain advertisement style – everyone had a good laugh that day :P … Pretty eyeshadow, I want!


Mehak March 11, 2012 at 9:08 pm

Haha i know i remembered the saint gobain ads when i did that..


Kejal March 12, 2012 at 11:29 am

Ohhh! Hope u r ok now! this shade looks similar to one on the UD palette…


RJ March 12, 2012 at 10:59 pm

Awww…. Hope u r better now… n i totally understand hw embarrasing at that time and comical later it is…. had the similar entry in my teenage to a hotel lobby which was full for some admission seminar… full on takkar with pretty large audience….
On a different note… have read abt Cyndi often in ur post… looks like one of your fav lipstick…


pavani reddy March 13, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Janelle @ Life.Love.Nailpolish March 15, 2012 at 12:40 pm
