MAC Cranberry

Hello Lovelies, 

I'm pretty sure if you have been following me for a while you will know my love for MAC Cranberry. This love has been around for about a month and a bit now, so I thought it was about time that the love was shown to the world, with swatches included. My Cranberry is kept in a little quad palette alongside MAC Nocturnelle and two extra spaces, which need filling at some point.

without flash (slightly out of focus..sorry)

Cranberry is described by MAC as "Red-plum with pink shimmer", it is the perfect Autumn/Winter shade and I can see why every blogger was going gaga over it recently. As you may have been able to see from previous FOTD post I have never worn this shade completely all over the socket, instead I opt for putting over half the eye along side MAC Naked Lunch (I think all that glitters would work too... sadly I don't own it)

With flash you can see the colour a lot better than before, I love this colour although it did scare me  the first time I opened it in the box. Would you like to see some swatches? I've done a finger swatch (with flash and without) and also a hand swatch (again with and without flash). Let's look through these shall we...

On the finger without flash, it seems plum in colour but with flash it seems redder. I don't know what else to say here. On the hand the swatches look like this....

With Flash

Again with the flash on it it looks a bit different than without. I don't know how to describe eye shadows well but I tried and I gave you some swatches and they speak for themselves.

So there you have it, I have confessed my love for MAC Cranberry it is now out there in the world for all to see. I am aware of one dupe, which I don't own so I can't compare. That dupe is from MUA and its the single shadow in shade 25, which is a lot cheaper but I'm unsure of the colour payoff on it. Leave me a comment below.

Also any suggestions or MAC favourites of your own... leave those below too.

Till Next Time,
