The colder months are here therefore the Autumn/Winter shades are out again. The nice forest greens and the plummy purples are everywhere in shops when you are out shopping. MAC cranberry eyeshadow has been on my wishlist ever since seeing eye make-up looks posted on blogs recently but i have never got round to actually buying it. I went shopping the other day at Bicester village outlet where i usually go crazy over their Cosmetics Company because they sell products from MAC, Bobbi Brown, Estee Lauder and Clinique etc etc. I settled only for an eyebrow pencil because i needed one (Review coming soon) but i saw a box full of pan eyeshadows near the cashier so i went through them all and i was thrilled to find it in the Shade Cranberry, so i grabbed it for £7 which I thought was amazing!

The shadow is a lovely deep rich berry colour which seems quite intimidating to wear at first but when i used it on my eyes, i was surprised to find out that it is really easy to work with and blends out like a dream. Depending on how you want the look, this eyeshadow alone applied lightly can give you a lovely wash of colour on the lids without looking too harsh, but if you prefer a more intense look, this is really buildable and can contribute to a nice autumn smokey eye look. I prefer to use this shade as an everyday shade on my lids to add that extra bit of colour on my face and diverge from the usual browns and blacks that i usually go for. I recommend this shade for the autumn shades and i do believe that adding a nice plum shade eye base will intensify the look too!

What is your favourite MAC eyeshadow?
