Shadowy Lady Eyeshadow Quad was a limited edition palette from MAC Cosmetics' "Cult of Cherry Collection." I must say , no matter how much i love playing with makeup, eyeshadow are my least used item. I have so many palettes and i think its time , i start utilizing them. I love looking at pictorials and always wanted to do some of own . Today i was feeling little active and took some test shots and to my surprise they did turn out pretty well. So one thing lead to another and here i am. Please keep in mind that I am not a professional makeup artist and have never gone through proper training. All my techniques and skills are self-taught and acquired through experience/blogs/you tube/magazines
So enough of jibbar jabbar and lets get started.
The MAC Shadowy Lady Eyeshadow Quad has four eyeshadows
- Deep Truth is a dark, shimmery navy blue. This is a permanent color.
- Lightfall is a soft, grayish-purple highlighter color.
- Shadowy Lady is a smoldering black-brown.
- Smudged Violet is an icy grayish-purple.
