MAC: All Ages, All Races, All Sexes Eye Shadows

MAC relives their annual neutral collection with their latest offering, All Ages, All Races, All Sexes. Reminiscent of the N Collection, this collection offers an array of neutral shades for all skin tones. All swatches on NC 35-40 skin, indoor lighting with flash.

Left to right: All Races, Banshee and Cross Cultural

Eye Shadows ($17.50 CA/14.50 US)

All Races - a matte, pale slightly greyed mauve.  Good pigmentation and smooth application.

Banshee - a medium toned neutral pink with a sliver flake sparkle.  Like most lustres the sparkles have a tendency to fall out when applied.

Cross Cultural - a rich, matte, neutral medium brown.  Good pigmentation and smooth application.

Showstopper (not swatched) - a matte, rich dark black-brown.  Has been repromoted several times.

Generally the eyeshadows are quite wearable and well pigmented. Banshee is a good pink for many skintones, but is a lustre formula and has a tendency to create fall out.  My only must have pick from the four shadows is All Races, which gives a slightly cool neutral base and is an unique colour for MAC. My second pick would be Cross Cultural, which I can see working both as a shadow and brow colour for brunettes.

What eye shadows did you pick up?
