A Summer Duo... MAC Expensive Pink and MAC Naked Lunch

Hey there,

Hi my name is Clare and I'm an eye shadow addict. I have many palettes and a good handful of solo eyeshadows too. 

With so many eyeshadows to choose from I can sometimes get stuck in a rut and wear the same one eyeshadow over and over. When I do this I ask for help from twitter (@abotat90 if you haven't followed before) and recently I asked what people's favourite MAC eyeshadows are.

One lovely lady, Nicole from The Life of a Beauty Addict said Expensive Pink. Of course I have this shade and have had it for nearly a year but I always forget about it, so her tweet reminded me.

After seeing the tweet, I decided to bring out my colour palette and my original palette and located Expensive Pink and a trusty favourite to go with it. That trusty favourite is Naked Lunch.

MAC's Naked Lunch is a brilliant eyeshadow. It is a simple barely there pink with minimal shimmer, a perfect shade to go all over the lid. Expensive Pink is a pink eyeshadow with a duochrome gold shining throught it. Think NARS Orgasm Blush in eyeshadow form (or at least that's what I think it's like).

My current go to colour summer eye look pairs these two eyeshadows together. Firstly I coat the whole lid in MAC Naked Lunch. Then using a fluffy blending brush, I take Expensive Pink through the crease using a windscreen wiper motion. It's so simple and so summery. The end results look like this...

Excuse the haggered look I had just come back from work and had just quickly applied this to take pictures. I also must point out that to get a stronger look, if you put on a little cream eyeshadow (MAC paint pot/ Maybelline Colour get the idea) and the colour is a little stronger and also stays on a little longer.

I really enjoy this look and it's so simple and quick to do. What do you think? Do you have any favourite MAC eyeshadow pairings? Do you have a favourite MAC eyeshadow? Let me know in the comments down below.

Lots of Love,



  1. Love finding a good dupe! You really cant tell the difference between these apart from the price :)
