MAC Cloudy Afternoon and Twilight Falls Mineralize Eye Shadows Swatches, Review, and EOTD - MAC, Naturally

MAC is back with more Mineralize Eye Shadows!!  With the MAC, Naturally Collection we're introduced to five new shades of swirled beauties.  Cloudy Afternoon and Twilight Falls (featured in this post) are only two of them! 

What the MAC Website has to say about Mineralize Eye Shadows:
Baked minerals refined into a powder formula provide exceptionally sheer and lightweight application. Colour builds lightly, layer after layer, without heavy coverage.
2.5 g / 0.08 US oz





 (Cloudy Afternoon, Twilight Falls)



Cloudy Afternoon (cream with gold, grey and pink veining) swatches as a subdued frosted silver.  It wears lightly on the eye, but would REALLY pop on top of a colored primer such as a Paint Pot.


Twilight Falls (cool brown with bronze veining) swatches like a sheer burgundy brown.  I wish this one had more pigment when applied dry, but when looking for pigment here you'll have to use it wet.  Idyllic Paint Pot would be ideal with this.

Overall, this crop of Mineralize Eye Shadows are like the others, just in different shades with new names.  They applied nicely and wore very well (no creasing or fading when used over-top of Urban Decay Primer Potion (I wore the look below yesterday from 8:30am til 11pm and did a TON of running around with the kids).  They are more sheer than your run-of-the-mill shadow, so they'd be great to pair up with a darker and more matte shade.  Please remember the color of your MES might vary slightly depending on the veining and how much color you're getting there.

Other shades are Summer Haze (palest gold with deeper gold veining), Daylight (peach with dirty blue lavender veining), and In The Sun (gold with violet veining).

For this eye look I began with UDPP and applied Cloudy Afternoon all over the lid to the brow with the 286.  Also using the 286 I added Twilight Falls to the crease and outer V.  I finished off the look by smudging Chanel Le Crayon Kohl in Noir on the top lid and waterlining on the bottom.  I ended the eye by using MAC Plushlash Mascara.

MAC Mineralize Eye Shadows retail for $20.00 each.  Cloudy Afternoon and Twilight Falls are both Limited Edition to the MAC Naturally Collection.  This collection is available at maccosmetics.com, MAC Stores, and counter locations.  Click to view the official press release
