MAC Smoked Cocoa Eye Shadow Quad Swatches and Review

MAC Smoked Cocoa Eyeshadow Quad Swatches  

Can't say that I'm too impressed with this one. It's just a little too neutral and a little to average to seem like a justifiable $45 purchase, in my opinion. The color payoff of the top two eyeshadows is pretty good, exactly what you would expect from MAC. But the bottom two barely have color payoff, without a base. So if you end up using my go-to Paint Pot in Painterly, these shadows will definitely show up more. A lot more.

Overall, the entire quad looks very dupeable and basic to me. If I want black eye shadow, with or without shimmer, I'll use old faithful Carbon.

The MAC Rihanna collection is available in MAC stores on Thursday 9/26, online 9/30 and on counters 10/3-10/31.
