The Best Mac Champagne Eye Shadow


Ladies, when you're a self-professed beauty addict, the arrival of new products feels just like Christmas morning, and MAC Cosmetics is a beauty brand that definitely feeds your addiction. Innovative products, bold colors and eye-catching advertisements are just a few things that put MAC ahead of the pack. One of makeup's essential components is eye shadow, especially a neutral shade like champagne that you can wear every day or for any occasion. MAC has several shades of the flattering champagne tone, but here are the ones that are true standouts.


One of the things that make champagne eye shadow such a coveted shade is that it is glamorous enough for a night out on the town, but subtle enough for a day at the office or at class. While MAC doesn't have an eye shadow specifically called "champagne," they do indeed have several shades that mimic a champagne hue. One such shade is from the classic eye shadow collection, and it's called Nylon. Nylon is a pale gold with a frost finish and lots of shimmer to beautifully catch the light. It's also a highly pigmented shade that goes on silky smooth and blends evenly.


Another member of the MAC classic eye shadow family is a champagne-influenced shade called Ricepaper. Ricepaper is a lush peachy gold shadow that has a frost finish and intense shimmer. This is a great shade to wear alone for an effortlessly natural look, or wear along the brow bone for highlighting. Depending on your complexion, this shade will have varying intensities. Fair/pale skin will only show the shimmer elements with a touch of gold, while medium/dark complexions totally reflect the color because their tone absorbs the light, so the result is beautiful contrast.

Impeccably Rich

Ditch that powder shadow, ladies, and embrace the silky smooth texture of MAC Big Bounce Shadow. Big Bounce is a whipped, mousse-like eye shadow that works as a nice alternative to powder shadow, which can sometimes come across harsh depending on the pigment and color. Big Bounce, on the other hand, has a light, airy texture that can be easily applied with your fingers. Impeccably Rich is a color that closely resembles champagne because it is a light gold shade with a pearlescent finish that reflects the light. Impeccably Rich is such a soft color that you can apply it solely over your entire eye lid for a flawless finish.

Golden Crown

Part of the limited edition Tartan Tale collection, Golden Crown is a fierce MAC eye shadow that is a lovely companion to a champagne color. Golden Crown is a light gold with bronze tartan print striping. Due to the bronze-colored highlight in this shadow, not only does it look like a champagne shade, it also acts as two shades in one, making it ideal for layering. This is a welcome addition to your makeup bag because it's appropriate for day and night, so you'll always have the proper shadow on the go.
