M.A.C Woodwinked Eyeshadow | The Review

A swipe of 'bronzy' eyeshadow all over the lids, accompanied by lashings of mascara and a touch of eyeliner never seems to fail. My go-to shadow for a simplistic yet superb look is Woodwinked - a classic, a beauty, an all-rounder.

Woodwinked has a 'Veluxe Pearl' finish (whatever the hell that means) and it's your standard, permanent line M.A.C shade. You can let out a sigh of relief now…. I know how frustrating it is to fall in love with a product and then hear someone say the 'd word'. Discontinued. *Gasp*

I feel like Woodwinked is a perfectionist, a high-achiever, a gold star awardee in the eyeshadow world. It's smokey but subtle, glittery without being chalky and a killer medium-bronze. Parfait.

If you were to start a little M.A.C ensemble, this would be a brilliant blending shade that catches light and attention. Definitely a staple in my collection and fantastic for lazy-makeup-days when all the fuss, tools and colours is just too much.

Independence is another strength of this wonder-prod. Woodwinked doesn't need the whole M.A.C fam cramping its undeniable style. Worn alone, making sure to blend out any harsh edges gives a really effortless yet effective look.

So, what are you waiting for? Head into M.A.C already - it will probs create a deep whole in your wallet, but there's no way of turning down something this good. $36 later (yep, I said 36…youch) and you'll be ready to rock bronze-lids.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more!
