MAC Sexpectations Exceeds Expectations!

Ok, so there’s only so many times I can walk by the MAC Counter and ignore MAC’s Peacocky Collection. I didn’t but anything when the collection came out (first time in a long time!). I had to go in to get some brush cleaner (true story bro) and whilst I was waiting my turn, I couldn’t help but look at the MAC Mega Metal Shadows.

I walked away with one Mega Metal Shadow called Sexpectations. I had to have it this time. It is the most gorgeous copper-red-brown shadow I’ve seen in a long time! Now the reason I didn’t get it at first was because I thought it was exactly like one of me fave ever eye shadows MAC Antiqued, but it’s just soooo much better!

MAC Mega Metal Eyeshadow Sexpectations

Here’s some swatches to show you some comparisons:

MAC Eyeshadows; Sexpectations, Antiqued, Sable, Mulch

MAC Sexpectations is a gutsier version of MAC Antiqued and I love it! It’s a beautiful copper brown with amazing pigmentation and colour payoff. This kind of brown shadow really makes my blue eyes pop.

MAC Sexpectations reminds me of the brown shade in NARS Blade Runner Eye Shadow Duo which the fantastic makeup artist Lisa Eldridge used in her recent YouTube tutorial Chocolate Berry Look:

Don’t you just love the look? It’s such a warm makeup look which is perfect to wear at this stage of winter I think.
I’m very happy I got MAC Sexpectations Mega Metal Shadow.
Did any of you pick up any of the Mega Metal Shadows from MAC’s Peacocky Collection? Or are you saving up for MAC Wonder Woman?
