Packaging: 9/10

These come in larger plastic compacts compared to normal MAC eye shadows. They have the same packaging as the shadows included in MAC’s Peacocky collection.

Quality: 9.25/10

MAC claims these shadows last for 8 hours. I don’t know if MAC has application over a base in mind or not. Either way, these shadows are of solid quality, but no more so than with other good MAC shadows. As long as you use a base, the shadow will last all day.

The formulation is soft and blendable, though on the slightly powdery side. The pigmentation is also good for all these colors.

Ease of Use: 9/10

The shadows apply well, with good color. It’s actually somewhat difficult to blend out the colors, but only because the pigmentation is good.

Price: 9.75/10

Pro Longwear Eye Shadows contain 3.4 g of product and cost $20.00 each. That’s $5.88 per gram compared to $10 per gram for regular MAC shadows.

Final Grade

92.75/100

    They look so dupable so I am still hesitant. It would have been nicer if they would fit in my MAC pallette

    Hm…I’m kinda torn here, since the price for the amount is better…but it already takes me long enough to finish one of the regular eyeshadows!
    I like Keep Your Cool, Legendary Black, and Thru the Night best, but they’re all dark, and I could only use one at a time on my small eye area.
