MAC Amber Lights Eyeshadow Review, Swatch, FOTD

mac amber lights eyeshadow

Price : Rs 680 for refill, Rs 900 (pan)

MAC describes Amber lights as peachy-brown with shimmer (frost).

Amberlights is a golden orangey coppery super pigmented eyeshadow. It is not chunky shimmery but has a high sheen to it. Amber Lights for me especially is a total festive color. It looks gorgeous with both Indian and western wear. You can  use it as a lid color and an inner corner color and it totally stands out on eyes. You can pair amber lights with browns, greens, blacks , plums, blues and many more colors. In fact on its own also it gives such a nice look to the lids.

There is a teeny meeny bit of fall out I noticed but really nothing that you can’t fix. When I love the most about this e/s is that it maintains its high sheen all day long. You can wear it with a soft brown eyeshadow during the day and amp it up with darker colors for evening.

Smooth blending, no creasing and fine textured.

According to me, it is a MUST HAVE from MAC eyeshadows collection. Indian women can especially pair this with their lovely sarees and suits.

Swatches :

Here I have used black and brown eyeshadow Sleek Oh So Special palette for outer corners and amberlights on the lid and inner corners.  Lined my eyes with black gel liner, applied kohl on waterline, curled lashes and applied mascara. amberlights eye makeup

I kept my face makeup quite simple here. Good Lovin’ lipglass (shimmery nude brown)on lips, Colorbar Just Earth blush on cheeks. amberlights eyeshadow

And then I got bored of posing :tongue:

I have worn Amber Lights on my eyes HERE and HERE as well.

Definitely give it a try.  You wouldn’t be disappointed. 🙂

This and Woodwinked…are must haves for anyone….they are so so so beautiful and wonderfully versatile….btw, I got 239….it IS a great brush…..does so many things…its like 1 brush can do everything!

I always pair MAC Amber lights with MAC Cranberry or MAC Sumptous Olive….or just plain MAC Espresso…..and it stays on mostly all day long!
