Oh, boy! I could write odes, sonnets and volumes upon volumes on the wonders of Club, one of my holy grail MAC eye shadows, but I’ll spare ya and get down to business.
Club eye shadow came into my MAC collection as one of the shadows in the Holiday 2006 Smoked Eyes Palette. At first glance, it’s kind of dirty looking and scary. It reminded me of oily puddles in the middle of the road on a rainy day — black, gray, green and blue at the same time. I didn’t think I’d be able to wear it at all.
Once I got it on my eyes, though? Wow. Club shows up on my lids as a brown with flashes of green and blue. Pretty, multi-dimensional and versatile.
I wear it toned down during the day by using it in the crease with MAC’s 224 Blending Brush, or on the lid with MAC’s 252 Large Shader Brush. For nights out, I get a sultrier look by wetting the 252 brush and packing the color down on the lid or using it as a liner with a wet 266 Small Angle Brush, and I’ll often pair it with MAC Ricepaper, Vex, Malt and Soba eye shadows.
Club is a must for any MAC addict who loves smokey eyes!
P.S. This was one of the very first posts ever on Makeup and Beauty Blog. It’s from back in Feb. of 2007, so it’s quite old, but I still like Club just as much now (Feb. 2014) as I did back then.
