I See Vampires In the Sun With Twilight Falls and the MAC, Naturally Mineralize Eye Shadows!

Published in: Eyes, MAC Makeup, Product Reviews

I’m starting to see vampire references everywhere I look! — now even in the new MAC, Naturally collection.


Two of the five MAC Mineralize Shadows from the release are called In the Sun and Twilight Falls ($20 each)…

In the Sun? And Twilight Falls? Total vampire plugs, right?

Alright, maybe not, but Twilight Falls is my new smokey shadow crush. MAC describes it as a cool brown with bronze veining…

Veining? Vampires? No?

Okay, I’ll stop. 🙂

Twilight Falls

On me, Twilight Falls is a shimmery cool-toned brownish taupe — hardly any fallout — and I love the way it looks when I apply it on my lids with a firm brush like the MAC 239 and then diffuse the edges with something like the 217 for sultry smokey eyes in snap.

I think it’s also super pretty when applied wet. If you remember Earthly Riches from 2007’s Antiquitease, I think Twilight Falls looks like a version of that with more brown.

In the Sun

MAC describes In the Sun as a gold with violet veining (vampire much?). On my skin, I see a reddish bronze, and it’s my least favorite of the two on account of its texture and moderate fallout.

I do like how it shimmers… Shimmer always makes me go, “Ooh! It sparkles!” But when I wear it, I can see big grains of powder sitting on top of my skin.

I should also say that I tend to have trouble pulling off bronzy reds because I think many of them they can make me look like I’m ill, but if you can work ’em, more power to ya.

In other news, what are you up to tonight? El Hub and I just finished sharing some chocolates from See’s and watching Limitless with Bradley Cooper.

Can you imagine what Tabs would be like if he had access to those pills? I bet he’d finally figure how to use the can opener, haha!

    I looove your earrings! I think I’d enjoy In the Sun if it came as a blush (sans fallout). I’ll have to check out Limitless because of Bradley Cooper!

    ‘Limitless’ is an awesome movie. Loved it totally.

  8. sarahc says:

    Saw Limitless. Loved it! I would take that drug in a heartbeat. Heart. Beat. Then use my brainpower to figure out a way to get rid of the side effects.

    I’m not really moved by either of these colors, but I’d be interested in seeing how Twilight Falls looks applied wet.

  9. Sunny says:

    Twilight Falls looks cool! I spent last night cleaning and cooking because I was inviting friends over for the Chinese New Year today. It was great fun, but now that they’re gone I can finally put my feet up lol

  10. Nina says:

    sigh … another set of mineralized eyeshadows i cant use! so pretty!

  11. Diana says:

    I LOVE Limitless! Such an amazing storyline and Bradley Cooper is delicious.

    Oh and Twilight Falls looks like a lovely color but I can’t really see anything that special about it. Besides its name of course.

  12. Hope says:

    Looks great on you. I saw this post and out I went to buy it.
