MAC Twinks Eyeshadow Review + Makeup Look

mac twinks eyeshadow review
One of my lifetime blog goals is to individually review, swatch, and create a makeup look with each individual shade in my MAC Pro Eyeshadow Palettes. Seeing as that collection grows more and more each year, the task is starting to look daunting. Anyhow, here's a look at the color Twinks (Veluxe Pearl). I buy all of my eyeshadows in refill pans (when possible) so I can save myself the hassle of depotting. Not to mention that the refills cost $10 and the compacts $15. However If someone offers to buy me a MAC blush or eyeshadow as a gift, I'll ask for the compact so that it can go towards Back to MAC. Hehe!

I had always heard fellow bloggers describe Twinks as a plummy brown. I really didn't get that until I compared it to my other brown eyeshadows and saw that it was considerably redder and even had a slight purple undertone. Twinks is one of the good MAC eyeshadows: very pigmented, soft in texture, easy to blend, and long-wearing. I haven't encountered much duds in the 20+ MAC eyeshadows that I own, but they do exist. Particularly when it comes to their Limited Edition releases. 

I really like this eyeshadow. I bought it during the fall but still find myself reaching for it now. Let me know if you also own Twinks. What do you like to pair it with?

  20. I feel like not having MAC in my country is a curse and a blessing at the same time. I would leave all my money there if we had a store! :D

    1. I have an entire palette full of neutrals and all of them are different. The different undertones, lightness, and finishes makes it so that there are never too many! x

  26. Beautiful shade! I never knew that the refill pans don't count as Back to Mac. I'm kind of sad now! Regardless, I think its a great idea to individually swatch and make a look of the shades. I currently have 6 and I might give that thought a go!

    1. They don't because what they want to recycle is the plastic packaging. :/ But you're still better of buying the pans because 6 eyeshadow compacts would cost $90 and you'd get one for free with Back To MAC so it would come out to 7 for $90. If you buy refill pans, 7 eyeshadows would cost $70.

  28. Twinks is one of my all-time favourite MAC shadows! The perfect plummy brown with just a hint of shimmer and the texture is to-die-for. Looks lovely on you! xo

  33. That is a really wearable and sultry versatile shade Coco. I don't own more than 3 mac shadows and I ended loosing the one that I used most! The other just sit and rot, (a dark purplish shimmery and matte black), but shades like that are just so pretty it makes me want some!
