Product Review: MAC Sable Eyeshadow (With Photos & Swatches)

MAC sable is one of the versatile eyeshadows I have in my collection. It works pretty much on anyone and can be paired with any outfit in my opinion.

PRODUCT

According to MAC, it’s a golden-plum color with bronze pearl and a velvet texture which I completely agree. I’d like to add that it has a frost finish as well causing an iridescent shine of bronze pearl when reflected in light. This gives sable a dimensional look even when used alone as shown in one of the photos below. For application, it’s glides on smoothly and effortless to blend. Highly pigmented just like other MAC eyeshadows and has hardly any fall out.

On my entire eyelids, I used MAC Sable eyeshadow alone then a black eyeshadow as liner. I just simple adore it!

PACKAGING

I got mine in the ┬ápro palette refill pan so I can add it to my existing customized eyeshadow palette. It also cost $5 less than the individual pot. By the way, I recently dropped my eyeshadow palette like I dropped my heart to the floor. I was so happy this didn’t even crack one bit. That speaks a lot about high quality packaging ;)

PRICE

MAC has always been more expensive in my country so I ordered online from MAC in the US and got the pro palette refill pan for $10.00 instead of the one that come in the individual eyeshadow pot for $15.00.

STAYING POWER

Absolutely amazing staying power! I always use a primer underneath my eye makeup so I can’t really attest to it’s longevity without one but I’ve heard it stays put the entire day regardless.

Here’s my score board:

Product 10.0
Packaging 10.0
Price 9.0
Performance 10.0
Overall 9.75

      Hi Marianne! One of my favorites is Anastasia brow powder duo :) It’s a bit pricey so for a more affordable one that performs just as well, I go for NYX eyebrow cake powder. I’ll post a review pretty soon :)

      Hello Karie – NYX already have branches in SM Megamall, North Edsa, Aura, etc. For Anastasia, I bought mine from Sephora in the US but I think Make Up Pro (local online shop) sells them. You can google it :)
