MAC Naked Lunch Eyeshadow

Price : Rs 720 (for refill)

MAC describes Naked Lunch as minimal pink with shimmer. It is a frost finish eyeshadow.

Naked Lunch is a shimmery champagne pink eyeshadow. You know there are days when you don’t need much on lids but just a wash of color that would give a little lift to your eyes, that’s what this eyeshadow does. It adds a bit of shine to the lid overall and just preps them in no time. I prefer patting this eyeshadow all over the lid than swiping it off. I feel the effect does not comes too well when you swipe it across the lid. It is also one of the very less pinks that give a lift to the eyes than make your eyes look ill. I personally have worn it with mostly pinks in the crease or with soft browns . But this would go with just any color. It is a nice lid color or even as a lovely highlighter shade. It looks great as an overall color and a simple winged eyeliner as well.  The color payoff is nice and it does not crease at all. Even I did not find any kind of fading after a long day wear. It blends seamlessly and gives a lovely uplifted look to the lids.

It is a very good eyeshadow but it is not unique to me. You can get this kind of effect on your lids with your cheek highlighter as well.

Some of the potential dupes I found for Naked Lunch are MAC All that Glitters, Bourjois Eyeshadow in Beige Rose , Colorbar Shimmer Brick in Wink Pink, Tips and Toes Body Shimmer in Luminous Pink

Overall, It is a great eyeshadow both quality and color wise. Plus this color would work on most skin tones either as an overall color or just as an inner third color. It has never let me down.

this is such a wearable shade rati di! Will check it out! recently got rice paper for highlighting and loving it to the core! All thanks to your mac haul post!!!!!!!!!! And the way you have lined your upperlid is just super gorgeous! I have been practicing for four months now and made a decent line only this morning! Will take some more practice to improve to winged ones!
