MAC Soft Teddy Eyeshadow ($17) is one of several new eyeshadows that launched with the MAC In Monochrome Collection. The In Monochrome Collection focuses on cult-favorite shades that are grouped into six mini collections each of which includes matching lipglass, blush, eyeshadow, and lipstick. I think many of these shades will likely already appear in your collection such as Ruby Woo, Velvet Teddy, Candy Yum Yum, etc…! However, MAC took things further with all these best loved shades and introduced them in new formulas which is very exciting if say you already have Ruby Woo Lipstick and always found yourself wanting an eyeshadow and a blush in the same shade.
Granted, I think MAC did take liberties with some of the shades as they aren’t all sport on dupes for your favorite shades. They are however, variations of them! For example, Velvet Teddy Lipstick and Soft Teddy Eyeshadow don’t look anything alike but they do compliment each other!
Here’s a look at the MAC Soft Teddy Eyeshadow!
Just a note, my memory card is being goofy and the close up shot I had of this eyeshadow isn’t included in this review! I will update later with it!
MAC Soft Teddy Eyeshadow is bound for greatness and I hope MAC keeps it around but I do think it might be limited edition which means I might need to grab a backup! This is such a great shade that requires no effort at all to create a quick, easy, yet lovely natural look.
MAC calls it a soft rosy beige but I’d probably leave out beige and go with just a dusky rose with brown undertone once I applied it on my eyes. In the pan though, it def has a weird rose beige element and it looks incredibly uneventful and boring but applies beautifully on my lids. The finish is matte, the look it creates simple, but it manages to accent my eyes very nicely.
This isn’t the silkiest nor the most pigmented MAC eyeshadow I’ve run across but it applies and blends flawlessly and builds perfectly. I imagine it would make a nice base shade for a sparkle shadow or even as a transitional shade. I personally love it all by itself as it let my glowy blush play center stage along with the nude lips I embraced with it!
Needless to say, I really loved MAC Soft Teddy Eyeshadow and can see myself purchasing a backup just in case. It’s a keeper shade that I’ll likely get a lot of use out of because sometimes, in the morning, I just want to accent my eyes and go and this does just that. It takes little effort to apply and makes me look fabulous in seconds!
Where to buy
MAC Soft Teddy Eyeshadow is 0.05 oz in size and $17. This shade is part of the new In Monochrome Collection but I am unsure if it is a limited edition release or if it will become part of the permanent MAC eyeshadow collection. The color is a lovely dusky rose tan with a brown undertone. It’s not the softest, silkiest, nor pigmented shade of MAC eyeshadow I ever tried but it is a gorgeous color that accents eyes with a natural wash of rose making it an ideal pick for quick and easy looks!
- Easy to blend and apply!
- Looks smooth and flawless on lids.
- Very pretty natural dusky rose for easy looks!
- Not the softest, silkiest, or pigmented MAC eyeshadow around!
I think if you have a fairly quick makeup routine in the AM that MAC Soft Teddy Eyeshadow might be your best friend. It’s such a great shade to accent eyes without a lot of work!
