Review & Swatches: MAC Nudes & Metallics Eye Shadows (Nudes)

MAC-Nudes-&-Metallics-Eye-Shadows-Nudes

MAC Nudes & Metallics Eye Shadows (Nudes)

Release Date: Currently Available
Price: $15.00
Availability: MAC PRO Stores & Online

Company’s Description

Monochromatic meets metallic in a colour collection created with the M•A•C Pro in mind. A nude palette, defined by the creamy, rich tones of Amplified and Satin formulas, pairs to perfection with a metallic range of frosted plums and berries. Each features a selection of four Lipsticks with corresponding shades of Eye Shadow and a Powder Blush.

This review is for the four (4) eye shadows released with the Nude portion of MAC’s Nudes & Metallics Collection. This collection is targeted to PRO artists, but it looks like it is available to regular MAC customers online. Most of the shades are currently sold out, so if you’re interested in purchasing any of these colors, you should call a MAC PRO store. The following colors are reviewed:

  • Bare Minimum: Sheer soft pinky nude with pearl (Satin)
  • Glimpse of Flesh: Sheer warm pink nude (Satin)
  • Exposed: Sheer neutral mid-tone nude (Satin)
  • Body Conscious: Sheer warm mid-tone nude (Satin)
