Review // MAC Eyeshadow in Greensmoke

I have a whole list of MAC products that are on my 'to-buy' list. I'm talking Eyeshadows, Paint Pots, Blushers, Pressed Pigments... I am really slowly working my way through the list but this week I managed to cross off an item. The MAC Eyeshadow in Greensmoke.

Greensmoke is described as a "tarnished olive" on the website. It is a really earthy, smokey green shade with a beautiful shimmer running throughout. It is a really wearable shade which really takes me out of my day-to-day eyeshadow comfort zone, leaving the neutral browns and taupes and favouring an earthy olive instead.

I expected a bit of fallout from Greensmoke but I didn't have any at all. I applied using a flat synthetic brush but I think a fluffy brush would be more preferable as I found it a little hard to blend. I applied Greensmoke on top of my MAC Paint Pot in Painterly and it stayed put all day without smudging or creasing. I am really pleased with this eyeshadow as I didn't expect it to be so wearable for day-to-day wear but it is much more subtle than I expected it to be so I will definitely be wearing this a lot more than I thought I would do.

Like all MAC eyeshadows, this shade is no different. Greensmoke is incredibly pigmented, shimmery and beautiful. Thank you, MAC!
