To say I’ve been busy lately is a total understatement. I’ve had the pleasure to attend my first media screening for a movie in Melville, Johannesburg. I had to attend a corporate photo shoot and had to assist with holding props and walking all over the Maboneng Precinct in Johannesburg CBD. It’s the birthplace of all hipsters before they all migrate to Cape Town on skateboards or whatever method of transport it is that hipsters use nowadays, but in all honesty the CBD is very cool.
So with all my excuses out the way, I thought it’s about time that I do a review of an oldie but a goodie eyeliner of mine that I rediscovered while frantically searching for my concealer in my make-up bag one morning.
*Drumroll please* It’s MAC’s Copperthorn!
I absolutely adore this eyeliner. The texture is very smooth and velvety. Although it is technically an eyeliner in the more liquidy/gelly family, I use it as an eyeshadow.
It’s not powdery, but trust me when I say this baby sticks! You don’t need a primer and it seriously makes your eyes pop. I have blue eyes, but I think this is a shade that’ll work well for any eye colour.
It’s also jam packed with sparkles and pigment, but it’s not so sparkly that it’s glittery. It’s just the right amount of shimmer.
If I remember correctly, this product wasn’t exactly cheap since it is MAC, but you don’t need a lot of it when you’re using it so it’ll last quite a while.
It also comes in the signature sturdy glass pot with a black top that MAC loves using.
Which MAC eyeliner/shadow is your favourite?
