MAC Cranberry Eyeshadow Pot Review and Swatches.

MAC is renouned for it's amazing lipsticks but today I wanted to share a little love with their incredible eyeshadows! The one I'm talking about in particular is the eyeshadow pot in the shade Cranberry. It's not your usual colour and caught my eye immediately. It's an absolutely stunning reddish, pinky purple shade. The MAC website describes Cranberry as ''red plum with pink shimmer''. I've never really experimented much with eyeshadows colours and usually stick with browns so I thought I'd get Cranberry for my eighteenth birthday to add in my collection.
Packaged in MAC's famous little black pot, it is small and easy to keep in your make up bag. The finish of this is frost so when you apply this eyeshadow it looks shimmery on your eye lid. It's not over the top at all and just adds to the overall beauty of the shade. I absolutely love this eyeshadow. It's everything I wanted and more! I was worried in case I wouldn't be able to pull off such a bold colour but Cranberry is now a firm favourite. It's so much more wearable than what I thought it was going to be.

The MAC eyeshadows blend beautifully and apply evenly. They are so pigmented too and don't fade or crease through out the day. Cranberry is definitely the most vibrant shade I have. I think the red/pink colour with suit all eye colours and make your eyes 'pop'! If you want an eyeshadow that makes an impact, this is for you!
Cranberry might look a little scary in the pot with it being such an unusual colour but on the eyes it's everything you want in an eyeshadow! I don't think I've saw any other brand do a shade as beautiful as this little pink/red number! I love wearing Cranberry with brown shades and  a little bit of highlighter in the inner corner of my eye. It creates such a nice smokey eye with a twist.

At £13, it may be expensive but a little certainly goes a long way! Will you be buying Cranberry?

  44. The price is worth it as MAC products seems to be consistently impressive. I'm glad this product has been more wearable for you than expected, I had a similar experience with a Clinique lipstick a couple of months ago :)

  46. Totally in love with this eyeshadow shade <3 I think it's a very strong, dramatic but could be a chic statement colour to ur makeup xx Mac's products are truly amazing, like u said they're very pigmented which I love, and could be very long lasting. Love those crystal piercing near ur eyes, they're gorgeous xx

  56. I got Cranberry when I had my make up done by MAC for my formal (prom) a few years ago. I was a bit reluctant to use it at first because it's so bright but now I love it. I'm really into purples/warm colours so it's perfect for me. It looks great on you, you really suit it!

  57. I love Cranberry but I haven't quite managed to make it work on me. It seems to make me look a bit ill. You reminded me to dig it out and play with it again. I wanna insist with it because it's a beautiful colour. x
