MAC Bough Grey Eyeshadow

Photobucket
Alright, I caved. I bought it. It's MAC's eyeshadow in Bough Grey from the MAC Give Me Liberty of London collection, and actually, I'm glad I did. I've been using this quite a lot in the past week - more than I've been using Birds and Berries eyeshadow. Its a very wearable colour, even for working in a lab!

I'm sure you've probably seen a lot of swatches from the other blogs. Bough Grey is a greenish gray colour that is a satin finish - kinda matte with a slight sheen. I love using this on the crease.

Like most satin-finish eyeshadows, it comes out sheer at first, but they're really buildable. I think satin finish eyeshadows are my favourite at the moment. They're a lot easier to wear for everyday as opposed to shimmery veluxe pearl ones; one of my most used eyeshadows, Cork, is a satin! ♥

I hope this short post was helpful somehow. What do you think? ♥

  1. Wow the packaging is really pretty! We haven't got the collection out in Australia yet.

    The only grey that I have is probably Knight Divine by Mac. It's more strictly shimmery dark grey? Haha!

    I can't wait to see the colour on your eyes!

  2. Either do we, actually. MAC collections are really late for some reason. Good thing I can save up :)
    I really like this, and I don't have many grey shadows, so I might buy it. Thanks for the swatch!
    Have a lovely weekend, girl. XO

  3. Nice colour, would be lovely as part of a smoky eye. I stayed away from this collection because of the print design but the flower is actually quite pretty x

  4. I bought this colour too, I wish it was a little more pigmented, but I still do like it. Over a dark base, it's great!

  5. Great colour, I find those light greys are such useful shades to have - I use them all the time!

  6. I love the color! It's beautiful. I do wear gray shadows during the day a lot too. It's earthy yet vibrant.

  7. Gorgeous colour. But it looks a bit different on the pan and the swatch?

  9. @bowsnhearts- Yeah, the packaging is quite pretty, but I wasn't super-impressed when I saw it at first. It wasn't like an 'OMG.. that's SOO pretty!'-type of pretty lol. Knight Divine's a pretty colour, but I don't have it though! :P I think I already have too many haha xx

  10. @Marce- Its the same way in the Philippines when I go back there, the MAC collections are always super-late. But that's true, it gives you the opportunity to save up. Personally, I really like this eyeshadow, but its not a must-have though :) Hope your weekend was fab too! x

  11. @Peonies and lilies- You're right, I think this will look good as part of a smokey eye. This collection has 5 eyeshadows, and each of them has a different flower on top! You should get at least one of them x

  12. @So Very Fabulous - I like how its not so pigmented, that way, I'm sure not to go overboard! :)

    @Stefanie- I've actually just discovered the wonders of grey eyeshadows! ;)

    @tris1978ton- Yup, grey eyeshadows are definitely wearable for the day!

  13. @Ting Ting- Many eyeshadows look different on swatches. I guess it depends on the finish of the eyeshadow and the colour of what your swatching it on :)
