Mac Espresso Eyeshadow Review, Swatch & EOTD


Mac Espresso is a muted golden brown matte eyeshadow. It is one of MAC's best-selling eyeshadows. I don't know why, but it was looking lighter than it actually is in most photos. So, I ended up with only one photo where it looks almost exactly like it does off camera. We all hate misleading photos & swatches, don't we?


Mac Espresso  Swatch

Because Espresso is matte and brown it it so versatile! You can use it as an eyeshadow, as a liner, for eyebrows, and for contouring. It is easy to blend, pigmented, clingy (read: long wear), and it doesn't fly everywhere (no/less fallouts)
Nothing to dislike here. 

In the following EOTD I just used Mac Espresso and Maybelline Colossal Volum' Mascara


  • I applied it Espresso sheerly all over my lids & blended well
  • Then using the same, I made the outer corners darker & blended into the inner half of the crease
  • I used it to line my upper and lower lash lines too
  • Mascara on top & bottom lashes.
Mac Espresso sure is one of those necessary eyeshadows for me. I like it a lot and I'm definitely repurchasing.


Price ~ Rs.680 (Pro palette). Single eyeshadow~ Rs.900

  7. This looks lovely. Perfect office/work look, too! I heard its great for filling in brows, so give it a try like that? As of now, I am not buying any make-up this month, but I will buy this in March. I have to get so much stuff from MAC, have been ignoring their permanent line too much lately.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
