I wouldn’t usually dedicate a post to 2 single eyeshadows, but since I bought these a few weeks ago, they literally have not left my lids! As a fan of the Pro Longwear foundation, I decided to try a few of the eyeshadows from the range.
I am a neutral eye girl and I don’t think I have ever worn a bright or any type of “stand out” colour in my life! I tend to play it safe and just smoking up the eyes for a night out. With this in mind, I went for the colours “Sweet Satisfaction” and “Fashion Fix”.
These Pro Longwear eyeshadows are a little different to your usual MAC eyeshadows:
- They have a much silkier and creamier texture. This is to ensure maximum colour impact and makes them an absolute dream to blend. Very little product is needed as the pigmentation is amazing!
- These are long-lasting eyeshadows and will not crease or fade throughout the day. If you suffer from oily lids these are perfect as you can skip eye primer altogether.
- They are a massive 3.4g compared to your regular MAC eyeshadow which is 1.5g – so over twice the size!
This shade is a mix between a light gold and champagne and makes the perfect all over lid colour to really make your eyes pop. The texture makes it easy to use even with just your finger to give a wash of colour, but extremely blend-able with a brush for a more polished look. When you use a wet brush or a spritz of MAC Fix + you get THE most amazing shimmer which is perfect for night time.
This shade is described as a dark, cool slate grey. Personally I would describe it more as a taupe-toned mid-brown. The pigmentation on this is not as strong as “Sweet Satisfaction” but this suits me perfectly! I don’t use it all over the lid, but as a crease colour and sometimes as a liner. It’s very easy colour to build-up without it looking muddy, so it’s fantastic for adding some definition to a natural eye look and equally as good for smoking out.

While these do cost a bit more (€22.50 compared to €16.50 for the regular pots), they are well worth it. You also get over twice as much product for your buck and they last a good 8 hours on the lid.
Have you tried any of these shadows or any other shades in the range?
