MAC Woodwinked is one of their standout cult eye shadows for many reasons; the highly pigmented shade looks beautiful on many skin tones and should be a staple in your makeup kit.
The brand describes it as an antiqued gold, but we’d say it’s more of a golden bronze shade that’s not too yellow and extremely metallic; it looks stunning when it catches the light.
The dimensional Veluxed Pearl shine shadow is very pigmented, just one brush of this shadow over your lids and you’ve got a striking look. But what’s surprising, is the butter-soft texture that makes it a dream to apply, work with and blend with other shadows.
Like the majority of MAC shadows, Woodwinked is available to buy in an individual pot, which is sturdy and lightweight, or you can buy a little pan to place in your own palette. These are the cheaper options, and you get just as much product too.

Make-up Art Cosmetics, or M.A.C as it’s more commonly known, was founded in 1984 by two Canadian chaps named Frank – make-up artist and photographer Frank Toskan and beauty salon owner Frank Angelo after they became frustrated by the lack of makeup that photographed well, they decided to create their own. At first, they made the cosmetics in their kitchen and sold them straight from the salon to fellow makeup artists, as well as models and photographers. Soon, stylists and fashion editors got in on the action. As the magazine credits racked up and word-of-mouth popularity grew, the duo launched M·A·C in March 1984 from a counter in a Toronto department store.

The highly pigmented formula of the MAC Up the Amp lipstick is a big draw, it also flatters most skin tones, feels extra creamy, stays comfortably on the lips for hours and leaves a beautifully moisturised sheen.
This shade is the perfect gateway lipstick to the gutsier purple shades make offers like Heroine, Rebel or Cyber. And while it certainly packs a punch, it does so in a flattering and beautiful way.
