MAC Eyeshadow: Woodwinked

I thought I would try and review some of my regular eyeshadow collection and with the gorgeous weather we've had here, MAC Woodwinked has been in regular rotation. It is one of these 'cult' eyeshadows and one of my favourites.


MAC describe this shade as a warm antique gold. I see it as almost rose gold. It is a veluxe pearl finish which is my favourite from MAC. These eyeshadows are very soft and pigmented, other veluxe Pearl stand outs include Star Violet, Antiqued and all that glitters. 

I love wearing it all over the lid and when blended out, there is a lovely warm/copper duochrome. The other way I wear it is on the centre of the lid to catch the light. 

The only shade I own which is slightly similar is in the Bare Minerals duo The Top Shelf. Do you know of any dupes? Do you own/ want Woodwinked?

  2. This is one of those colours that if I wore eyeshadow, would be a staple in my collection. There's something so beautiful about it that makes it nicer than so many other shadows <3

    1. It is very rich in the sense that it isn't flat!

  4. I'm always so back and forth on this shade. It looks wonderful on other people but sometimes I worry that it won't flatter me..I should probably just bite the bullet and buy it, LOL.

    1. Maybe ask them to use it on you at a MAC counter?

  5. I gotta use my MAC shadows more. I used Vex the other day and forgot how much I loved it. I think I'm going to get rid of all the crap I don't use and stick with my MAC faves. They're just so good! I love Woodwinked. A lot! But I forget about what I truly love in all the mess of other stuff here.

  7. Ack, it's stunning! So tempted to grab it now but I'm trying not to rack up too many singles though and already have a couple of golds.
