With so many MAC eyeshadows available on the market, it can be hard to decide which shadows live up to the hype, and are worth spending your money on. Here’s my top 10 MAC Neutral eyeshadows that are worth splurging!
So here we go in no particular order…. (drum roll please….)
This is a very shimmery and pigmented pale gold eyeshadow. It gives a perfect glow that almost looks ‘wet’. This eyeshadow is perfect to use as a brow highlight, in the inner corner of the eye, or to add a bit of glow to the tops of your cheek bones.

Samoa Silk is described as a light peachy- nude matte eyeshadow that is great for blending through the crease. This eyeshadow has great pigmentation, amazing texture, and is very smooth. I love how this eyeshadow has the ability to warm up any cool toned color I put on the lid (like purples or blues).

All That Glitters
This shimmery shadow can be played down for day wear or played up for a night out. All that glitters is best described was a shimmery beige with gold undertones, that can be paired with warm eyeshadows for a sultry look. This eyeshadow is a veluxe pearl so the pigmentation is great, the application is smooth, and it’s easy to blend.

Kid is a beautiful light brown matte color that is perfect for blending out harsh lines and blending throughout the crease. This is my go to color for blending out a dark smokey eye, as it is just the right transition shade for my skin tone.

Expensive Pink is a beautiful mixture of pink, gold, and coral with a slight shimmery finish. This is a unique color that I usually pair with Cork for a day look, and Carbon or Ground Brown for a night out. This shadow is very wearable, as it’s not too bright. This is one of my all time favorite colors :)

Woodwinked is a gorgeous antique bronze color with hints of shimmer. This color is very versatile, during the day it looks great on the lid or blended into the crease, and at night, it can be used to create a sultry smokey eye. This shadow also works great in combination with greens, purples and deep blues.
MAC’s Description: Warm antique gold
Cork is a medium brown color best used for defining the crease or outer-v of the eye. This eyeshadow is very pigmented, making it easy to use as an eyebrow powder. For a dramatic warm toned look, simply place a deeper brown in the outer-v, cork in the crease, and blend out any harsh lines with an eyeshadow close to your skin tone.
MAC’s Description: Muted golden brown
This color has a brown base with red, plum, and gold tones. This eyeshadow highly pigmented and very smooth, a neutral shade that looks great on every skin tone and can be used in simple or extravagant looks.
MAC’s Description: Deep plum with pearl
Everyone needs a dark brown matte eyeshadow in their makeup collection. Ground Brown can be used to smudge along the lashline to make your lashes look thicker, added to turn a daytime look into a night look, or used to create dimension when placed in the outer-v. I like this Ground Brown color as it is dark, yet warm toned so it can be used for many different things.
MAC’s Description: Matte dark brown
Satin Taupe has been a favorite of mine for many years! This eyeshadow is a gorgeous bronze with a grey undertone, a classic smokey taupe. Satin Taupe is a very buildable eyeshadow, the trick to working with this color is applying it in thin layers until you’ve reached your desired intensity.
