Like a freak summer thunderstorm, MAC’s $40 Rainy Season Eye Shadow X4 quad might seem a little out of place this time of year, but it sure is practical. I’ll give it that.
Maybe it’s the combination of conservative cool and warm-toned grays, but there’s something very Bobbi Brown about it, I think.
It’s hard to go wrong with shades like these. They’re useful — especially for soft cat eyes, mrrrow! — but useful doesn’t always set my world on fire, if you know what I mean.
Will I look back in five years, sigh wistfully with a tear in my eye and say something like, “Remember the Rainy Season quad from the MAC All About Orange collection? Gosh, that one sure rocked my world.”
But that doesn’t mean I don’t like it. I do.
Like it, that is.
I get why it was included with the orange lip and cheek products in All About Orange, but…ya know. Fine.
All in all, I think it’s a proficient performer, like a sushi place that gets the job done, but you won’t go out of your way to find… If that makes any sense.
AVAILABILITY: Available now online, and coming June 6 to MAC counters and stores
