MAC Sable Eye Shadow

Don't you just love it when your impulse buys turn out to be one of your favourite makeup items?

I'm not a huge eye shadow wearer to be honest.. But when I do wear it, I normally go for a soft look.. Which is why I tend to reach for my MAC Sable Eye Shadow a lot..

Shade Description

- I would say that the shade is a frosty silvery purple brown.. That's the best I could do to describe Sable =P


- This applies sheerly which makes it a great day shade for those who are not too keen on wearing an eye shadow for work..

- It is easily buildable that you can create a smokey look with it too..

A huge thank you to my girl for modelling for me again.. Love you boo!

Here's How it Compares to MAC Satin Taupe & Mulch Eye Shadows

Satin Taupe: Silvery/Grey with a hint of Purple; Mulch: Bronzy Brown

My Final Thought: I love this shade for everyday.. It's so easy to wear and goes with every look I create whether I wanna go for pink, coral or bronze cheeks.. Mulch is my all time favourite MAC shade and since I added this to my collection, this is slowly creeping up next to Mulch..

Have you tried Sable? What's your go-to MAC eye shadow?

This is such a pretty color! I don't own any MAC eye shadows, but if ever...I think this would have to be a must buy for my collection. :]

What?! I have Sable but it definitely doesn't look this good on me.

Lydia said...

I have Sable in pot form instead of pan which means it doesn't get used as much as the eyeshadows in my palette :( I will have to bust this out this morning to use it, as it looks beautiful on you xx

tiffyama - This is definitely worth the investment ;)

Arianne Cruz - Gorgeous isn't it?!

JC - You gotta pack it on to get that effect ;)

Lydia - It's too lovely to be ignored ;)

I love Sable, it's one of my all time faves too and it was also an impulse purchase. It's like the warmer sister of Satin Taupe, but in my opinion it would suit so many more people than ST does.

I love Sable too! I love colours like Satin Taupe, Sable, etc, to give my green eyes a pop with the purple undertones in them.

Great post :) xox

Lauren Rose said...

Oh wow this looks beautiful on your model!x

Kat @ Cherries In The Snow Beauty Blog said...

Sable looks pretty on you! I agree, it's perfect for everyday. :)


Ebru said...

I love Sable and your post reminded me that I don't show it love like I should lately! It's a gorgeous shade and looks beautiful with your friend's complexion, she has gorgeous eyes! :) Some of my go to MAC eye shadows are, Satin Taupe, Patina and Shale. Mulch is on my list :)

Kayla said...

YAY! I love Sable, and I don't think it gets nearly enough love. =) I usually use it in the crease when I'm in a hurry and don't have time to do anything else.

Delyteful Speaks said...

JesRoque - Isn't it?! It's so easy to wear!

Ebru - Mulch is a must! Especially with your skin tone.. It'll look amazing!

Kayla - You're right.. It's one of those underrated MAC shadows.. It's so flattering!

Danielle said...

Oooh Sable goes right to the top of must-gets from MAC. Looks soo lovely! :) Thanks for swatching next to ST and Mulch. I always wondered how they compared!

LisaClare said...

Sable is EXACTLY the sort of colour i wear on a day to day basis. That goes on my list! Looks gorgeous on your model. She's got really pretty eyes :) xxx

Laiqah said...

Sable is so pretty!
I too am not a big eyeshadow wearer and I also almost always go for soft looks.
MAC Soba is one of my faves!
I have Satin Taupe & love it but Sable is definitely going on my list!

Probably a tad too warm for me, but really lovely on you! I'm sticking with Satin Taupe - thanks for the comparison swatches.

maya said...

Sable looks lovely on your friend. I wish it would look good on me. I find that it pulls too red on my skin tone. Don't even know why, since I am pretty warm toned. Maybe it will look better when I get a little darker. Mulch, Satin Taupe and Tempting look better on me.

Any tips on making this shadow work? It's collecting dust. It's such a shame, really.

LauraSummer said...

That's one of my fave go-to shadows :) your blending looks gorgeous! X

Eden-Avalon said...

It's amazing how different the colors can look depending on your skin tone! I also have this, but it barely shows up at all because it's a near match for my skin tone. Haha! You look fab with it.

Delyteful Speaks said...

@Danielle - You must check it out!!

@LisaClare - Thanks hun! It's a perfect everyday shade!

@Laiqah - Ohh I'll have to check out Soba now..

@Alex Kay - Sable is great for warm skin tones.. Satin Taupe is great on all skin tones!

@maya - To make it work, try packing it on.. Coz the more you pack it on, the more the brown tones show.. Also wear Mulch on the crease and some eyeliner.. Try that and lemme know how it works yah? ;)

@LauraSummer - Thanks hun!

@Eden-Avalon - I know right?! Try packing it on your lids.. The colour will come out for sure coz it's a Frost
