MAC Bloggers’ Obsessions Eyeshadow Swatches

Published in: MAC Makeup

Last batch of swatches — the four Eyeshadows from the MAC Bloggers’ Obsessions Collection. Can I just say that Tabs is mad as hell right now? I’ve been swatching all morning and haven’t taken him out for his usual walk, so he’s been biting my elbows and swiping my feet. Ah, to live with a diva kitty…

    I totally agree that the green looks best on you! Love it!

  3. Vonvon says:

    All the looks you did are gorgeous! The eyeshadows look better on the eyes than in the pan.

    This is the first time I’ve ever wanted an entire collection! Had my heart set on Ev Rev, All Of My Purple Life, and Jealousy Wakes since you first posted about these Karen. Would like to get a couple other items but I’m so torn! Lol Decisions, decisions…

    • Inday says:

      And I must add that you’ve been looking positively radiant lately Karen! (Not that you haven’t always been lovely, hehe)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Inday,

      I’m thrilled to hear that you’re loving the collection. What other items are you considering? Maybe I can help you narrow your list. 🙂

      • Inday says:

        Thank you Karen! Caqui or Sonoran Rain? I really liked Caqui when I saw the promo pics but Sonoran Rain is gorgeous in the swatches and especially on you!

        Then, Parisian Skies or Hocus Pocus? I feel like I already have many (seldom used) blues but Parisian Skies seems to be very greyed (is that a word? Lol) and I’ve been looking to add to my grey e/s collection. Hocus Pocus is lovely but I have the Black Palette and feel like I should be set as far as smokey eyes.

        So that’s the dilemma, hahaha.

        Hope you’re having a happy Fathers’ Day weekend with your loved ones!

    From the swatches of the e/s, I thought I liked Hocus Pocus the best but, I kinda like Sparkle, Neely, Sparkle more now 😀

      I know! We totally need the Desi opinion to decide, no?

    • Karen says:

      Hi Appu and Shiny,

      Sparkle, Neely, Sparkle has a lot of red in it. If you wear MAC Saddle or Brownscript well you might really like it.

      Let me know if I can answer any other questions for you re: the shade or any of the other colors!

      • Appu says:

        Oh, is it like Saddle, Karen? I returned Saddle a couple of days ago since it kinda made me look tired, if that makes any sense. In fact, that is the only MAC brown e/s I’ve returned 🙁 I need a good matte brown & I’m an NC 40 right now, so I wanna try Soba or Softbrown instead. What do you think?

        Shiny – haha! I always gravitate towards browns, taupes & neutrals. How boring, right?

  8. Naj says:

    Ok. Your swatched are damn hot! I love them all.

  9. Danielle says:

    OMG—when I first saw the pics of Hocus Pocus and All My Purple Life I KNEW they would look hot together—great that you put them together 🙂 And of course Evolution Revolution is a gorge go with everything shade 😉

    You look GOOD in all of these looks :0)

  10. Christina says:

    Oh, goodness! All these colors are so amazing! Seriously, I might get the entire collection and maybe even two tubes of Evolution Revolution because I love it so much! I’m going to start applying to pharmacy schools soon and I need a lot of Evolution Revolution to be with me along the way! <3

  11. Kim says:

    Hi! Long time creepy lurker, but had to comment to say you look absolutely fantastic in the green eyeshadow with your gloss. Just lovely! I enjoy your blog so much and look forward to it each day. Thanks and give Tabs a squeeze for me!

  12. Jackie says:

    I love the Sonoran Rain and Parisian Skies look on you. So elegant. I’m super-pale and might be a bit dark for me, though. Will this collection make it to the UK, I wonder?

  13. Maribeth says:

    Hi there. Can you describe Parisian Nights and dupes? It looks like a very pretty blue gray unlike any I’ve seen before. I am really liking it. Also I’ll get your lippy and Sonoran Rain. I know they are online only – do you know how long they’ll be available? Thanks and Happy Saturday to you and Tabs!

    • lisa says:

      Hi Maribeth!
      are you sure they’re on line today?? I was just on there and I couldn’t find karen’s gloss anywhere and i’m a pro-member.
      I MUST get my hands on that gloss, lol! Plus, its free shipping till the 19th.

  14. Love Hocus Pocus! What a gorgeous color!

  15. Vicki says:

    I really like all of these colours! But is it true that they are only available in the USA? If so, gutted!

  16. Advah says:

    Count me in the Hocus Pocus fan! I must say all the colours are gorgeous, but this one looks great with brown eyes! Really gutted it’s not available in the UK, sigh 🙁

  17. Ana says:

  20. Rachel says:

    You look so glamourous! Love the filled out eyebrows!

  21. Nina says:

    jealousy wakes looks gorgeous on you! 🙂

  22. abby says:

    you are so pretty…everything looks good on you 🙂

  23. Diane K. says:

    I had no idea the blogger’s eyeshadows and lip glosses had gone on sale at MAC and the colors I wanted are all sold out. Will MAC be getting more and/or will these products be sold at any other stores? Thanks.

    • Karen says:

      Nope, it’s an online exclusive only, which means it won’t be sold in stores or at counters. As far as I know what they have out is all they’ve got.

  24. Mini says:

    I bought Hocus Pocus, Evolution Revolution and Caqui and I can’t wait to use them. Are you wearing Hocus Pocus by itself or do you have something else in your crease? Also what blush are you wearing in the pic with Hocus Pocus. Sorry if I sound naive…I’m new to the world of eyeshadows. 🙂

  25. Julie says:

    Karen: so nice to see your name as one of the inspirations for the MAC Bloggers collection.

  26. Dani says:

    I love all of the colours on you! Parisian skies and Hocus Pocus look amazing with your skin tone. Lucky girl! xo
