Hey everybody, happy Sunday! How’s your weekend so far? I had family over for dinner. It was a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to do the washing up now (in case you didn’t sense it, this is sarcasm)!
Today I’m going to review the genre of products that I am better at reviewing (just because I own more lol). Face one: I love Veluxe Pearl eyeshadows. Fact two: I love gold eyeshadows. With that said, I guess it was a matter of time before MAC Woodwinked fell into my hands *evil laugh*
Strictly speaking, MAC Woodwinked is not a pure gold. Especially in pan, it looks bronzy. On my warm-toned NC30 skin, it is a bronzy gold. I’ve heard that it could pull orange on some people, but I’m guessing as long as your undertone is warm you stand a pretty good chance of it not happening to you. Like her Veluxe Pearl siblings, Woodwinked applies pigmented, soft, and buttery smooth. It is definitely shimmery but not over-the-top metallic, which makes it extremely versatile for both work and play. It is a wake-me-up shade that instantly brings life and light to my eyes, which I really appreciate!
Woodwinked is a Miss Congeniality type of girl. You can pair it with other neutrals for sure, but it’s also buddy-buddy with bolder shades. I have worn it with MAC Humid (see here) and Satellite Dreams (see here), and both times it displayed good team spirit without being overshadowed!
Last but not least, I did a little comparison swatch with Urban Decay Half Baked, another bronzy gold that I have.
As you can see, Half Baked looks more gold than ever next to Woodwinked, while Woodwinked becomes almost just bronzy! I love them both, though if Half Baked is already too warm for you then Woodwinked is highly possibly going to pull orange!
Bottom line: I can’t say enough good things about Woodwinked. If you’re warm toned you should definitely give it a chance to see how you get along!
How about you? Have you tried Woodwinked? Are you also a fan of gold?
