MAC eyeshadow – Trax

I feel like I haven’t done a post like this in forever. I just haven’t felt confident enough to do any make up posts since I fell over, but I figured I needed to start again one day so it may as well be now! Luckily I am just left with a few scars that can be covered in time but for now they will just have to be a little visible. Sorry, I just missed make up blogging too much to wait any longer!

Anyway onto my little purchase..

mac trax eyeshadow review
I got this eyeshadow a few weeks ago when I had a bit of a MAC splurge but have only recently started to use it properly. I seem to be steering towards purple/berry tones on my eyes lately, must be a sign of autumn brewing around the corner. Well that and the leaves falling off the trees being a bit of a giveaway. I picked up the shade Trax in my splurge as it just shone out at me amongst all of the eyshadows and after swatching, I was sold even more!

Available at Debenhams and MAC.

Trax is a lovely two tone shade which flickers between plum and copper. When you look closely you can see lots of copper glitter particles sprinkled in to make it the most perfect autumn colour a bit like crispy leaves when they start to fall.
The eyeshadow isn’t very pigmented but is easily built upon to make it more opaque. I find that if you swatch it lightly you get a very faint grey/purple shade which looks okay layered upon another colour but maybe isn’t so good left like on its own. The more layers that are added, the more wearable it is as it starts to be a lovely berry tone. I found this a lot easier to apply with your fingertip as using a brush tends to create a lot of fallout and not much shadow actually made it onto my eyelid.
I use this alongside my Naked2 Palette as it compliments the gold and nude tones really nicely. This doesn’t crease on me whenever I wear it even without a primer which is a bonus, especially for days when I am at work or can’t touch up my make up.
I really like this eyeshadow and think it is a good investment as something to wear everyday or even on nights out. Have you tried Trax, what do you think?
