Twinks by MAC Cosmetics


Twinks came on to my radar when Jordan from My General Life chose it after winning my 100 follower giveaway a few weeks ago. I dragged my boyfriend into MAC Cosmetics when I went to pick it up for her and I fell a little in love with it and very nearly picked one up for myself but somehow restrained myself, then on Valentine's Day, inside the beautiful gift bag he handed me was Twinks! Eek! They do listen after all! 



Twinks is from the Veluxe Finish range and is a dark brown shade with plum undertones. This is soft enough to use on its own during the day with a bit of mascara without it looking too much. I've also used this in the crease of my eye with Mac's Naked Lunch. As with all their shadows, the pigmentation with this is excellent and also builds up really well for a darker colour.

There isn't much fall out to write about and this lasts for ages. I wore this to work today and it still looked the same when I finished as it did before I left this morning, and that's without using a primer. As you can see from the swatch, it's pretty shimmery which I really like about it as it just catches the light perfectly. I can't wait to pick up a couple more shades to complement this one.
