New in September 2012, MAC has brought us Office Hours.  Aptly named, because for those long hours at the office you’re going to need these Pro Longwear products to get your face through the day.

As part of the collection, 9 Pro Longwear Eye Shadow shades were released in Ever Ivory, Bloom On, Always Sunny, Uninterrupted, Endless Passion, More Amour, Mauveless, Linger Softly, and today’s post of Fashion Fix.

What the MAC website has to say about Pro Longwear Eye Shadow:

A unique longwearing Eye Shadow with a silky, creamy texture formulated for maximum colour impact. Easily blendable and buildable; lids are visibly smooth no matter how intense the application. Lasts 8 hours.

3. g / 0.11 US oz

Fashion Fix is described as a dark cool slate grey.  This shade is beautiful to look at, obviously because it’s in taupe territory.  But, oy is it sheer… In the swatch above the left side is about 8 passes of finger swatching, the right side is three passes of blended out swatching.

I found that it did apply easily and nicely.  I used it below as a crease color for a light smokey look to my eye.  I was pleased with the look, overall, and the shade did last all day… but I really think you’ll find products with a nicer amount of pigment that will last longer and have a cheaper price point.

For this EOTD I started off with UDPP and then applied Fashion Fix to the crease and blended up.  Do not adjust your screens, it’s really that light.  On the lid and for a highlight I used MAC Once Upon A Time Eye Shadow.  The liner is Chanel Marine Le Crayon Kohl and the mascara is MAC Plushlash.

For more information please see the Official Press Release.

MAC Pro Eye Shadow retails for $21.00 and is available at your local MAC counter (try Nordstrom) or store, as well as online at maccosmetics.com.

  1. i use this for my brows and its perfect! i have VERY pale skin and VERY dark brows, and i have a cooler undertone. it looks natural and its the perfect color, and lasts forever with it being a pro pan. i don’t use it on the lids unless i’m going for a light wash of color. thanks for the great review!
