MAC Me Over Shadesticks

Limited Edition
Release Date: August 25, 2011
Availability: MAC online & MAC stores

This review covers MAC’s 4 MAC Me Over Shadesticks.

  • Butternutty: Frosted light neutral (Limited Edition, Repromote)
  • Cakeshop: Frosted pewter (Limited Edition, Repromote)
  • Tundra: Icy silver (Limited Edition)
  • Heirloom: Light icy pink (Limited Edition)
  • Street Cool: Mid-tone grey violet taupe (Limited Edition)

Packaging: 9.25/10

Shadesticks come in plastic tubes with twist-up bottoms that allow you to access the product as you use it up. Make sure to snap the tops on securely to keep the product from drying up.

Quality: 9.5/10

All of these Shadesticks have a creamy formulation that makes them apply easily. The colors are all well-pigmented. Cakeshop, Tundra, and Heirloom appear more frosty than Butternutty and Street Cool.

You can use Shadesticks as shadow bases, shadows alone, or liners.

Ease of Use: 9.75/10

The formula makes application smooth, even, and effortless. Apply right out of the tube. You can blend the product if you wish, right after applying it.

Price: 8.75/10

Shadesticks contain 1.5 g and cost $17.50 each. Not the greatest price for a product that contains 1.5 g, but they are high-quality.

    A few years ago I had some similar products from Clinique (Quick eyes? I can’t remember what it was called…) and Origins, they had eyeshadow sticks just like these, but I don’t remember much about them other than they were fun…I don’t remember anything about the lasting power or creasing…
    I heard shadesticks were a little dry and crease-prone, but your review makes me reconsider. The description of Street Cool “ Mid-tone grey violet taupe” sounds great, and the swatch convinces me! I also like the almost duo-chrome look of Cakeshop.
