MAC describes Twinks as Deep plum w/pearl (Veluxe Pearl). It is a plum brown eyeshadow with golden sheen to it. It’s a great brown eyeshadow for all eye colors and the plum effect in the eyeshadow is great for those with green eyes.

I love this product both as an all over lid color and as an outer corner color. It is not shimmery but has a soft sheen to it. the sheen kinda gives that satiny look to the lids. No fall out. Great staying power. Easy blending, no creasing ย and nice pigmentation. And it builds up pretty well so you cna really take the intensity from a sheer wash of color to a deep plum brown without it looking chalky or overdone.

It is an easy to wear color. Even on days when you are running tight on schedule, just apply this eyeshadow, kohl and mascara on eyes. You’d be sorted and it’d give a nice polished look to the eyes.

Not a must have but a good to have color ย in your collection. It’s a brown with a bit of a twist. ๐Ÿ˜‰

And this is the super simple messy eye makeup look I did using Twinks. Twinks all over the lid and past the crease. Apply black kohl on upper lash line and water line and just smudge it using a pencil brush. Curl lashes and apply mascara. ๐Ÿ˜€ I did one tutorial HERE using this eyeshadow.

Here I have kept face makeup more towards neutral brown only. You can totally use corals also with this look. In fact, experiment and see what works the best for you. :))

These are products used for eye makeup look. Twinks (all over), feline Kohl (smudged) and ricepaper just on the inner corner of the eye.
