MAC Espresso Eyeshadow
Price : Rs 680 for refill ; Rs 900 for pan
MAC describes espresso as muted golden brown.
Espresso is a matte greyish brown eyeshadow. This is the kind of color one would always use- whether for lining your eyes, for filling in your brows, as an everyday all over wash of color, crease color or for brown smokey eyes. Espresso would never fail you. It is a matte eyeshadow that goes on smooth. It is very pigmented, blends seamlessly, is long staying and would never fail you. Unlike Carbon, which is also a matte finish, I didn’t find this patchy or hard to blend.
I would say that it is not a unique color because you would find this kind of brown in your neutral eye shadow trios or quads. But if you are making your MAC eyeshadow collection or buying an everyday MAC eye shadow quad, do consider picking up this product. Very good eyeshadow for all skin tones and especially for medium dusky skin tones. The color is deep enough to show on various skin tones.
I’d say not unique but a very good eyeshadow color for everyday use.
And here is the quick tutorial on how to create a 5 minute smokey eye using this product. If you don’t understand any step, let me know. I’d try to explain it in comments. I used MAC RicePaper Eyeshadow as highlight. Review HERE
I have used black eye pencil as a base for this look.

I co-ordinated my eyes with cheeks. So used a peachy brown blush and kept my lipstick pinkish mauve (MAC Syrup )
