MAC "All That Glitters" Eye Shadow Swatch + Review

MAC "All That Glitters" Eye Shadow
 Last weekend I went home and spent sometime tidying up my room. Imagine my surprise and delight when I stumbled upon my MAC eyeshadow pallete tucked away in one of my drawers. Don't ask me how or why it was in that drawer, I have no idea, but I'm glad that I finally found it. I don't have a ton of shades--only about eight--and I'm always amazed, and slightly horrified, when I see other beauty gurus with four or five palletes filled to the brim with MAC eye shadows. I mean, that's hundreds of dollars on eye shadows. It blows my mind when I stop to think about it.
But enough about that, let's get on with the review!

MAC "All That Glitters" Eye Shadow
"All That Glitters" is famous on the internet, not only because it is a cult favorite amongst beauty gurus, but also because it is the namesake of one of the most popular YouTube beauty guru's channel, Elle Fowler. And I can see why Elle chose to name her channel after this shadow. On the MAC website,  this shade is described as a beige with gold pearl. It is a lovely all over the lid color for a natural, everyday look. It's also really great to blend with, if you're going for a shimmery smoldering look. It's probably tied for the MAC eye shadow that I get the most use out of--the other two are "Naked Lunch" and "Brule".

After months of exclusively using drugstore eye shadows, I had forgotten how creamy and smooth MAC eye shadows feel on the skin. I don't have to struggle to get a nice, opaque swatch. I had almost forgotten what that feels like. However, despite the name, "All That Glitters" doesn't actually have any glitter. Way to be misleading MAC. Instead, it is classified as a veluxe pearl and has a nice, but subtle, shimmery finish. 

This shade is loved because it is extremely versatile and a great everyday color. It's one of the few MAC eye shadows that I know I would repurchase if I ran out--although I don't think that's going to be any time soon. It's a luxurious and beautiful shade. If you have the money to spend, I highly recommend giving it a look the next time make a purchase at MAC.


  1. The gurus probably got their shadows for free or got a lot of money in YouTube, so it doesn't surprise me, hahaaha. I have a few MAC shadows and they've actually gotten cheaper now with just the pan being lowered to $10!
