MAC Cranberry Eyeshadow Review ♥

Hey beaut's!

Today I have a review of a MAC eyeshadow that I've been meaning to review for such a longggg time, the ever so popular Autumn favourite, Cranberry! I absolutely adore my MAC eye shadows, I do only have a few but they are by far the best eye shadows I've ever used and worked with. I bought Cranberry a long time ago but hadn't started to experiment with it until recently, because although I was blown away by how pretty the shade looked in the pan I found it quite a difficult shade to pull off until now.
Cranberry (£13.00) is a very interesting and stunning colour, it's a burnt red-burgundy shade with some ever so slight shimmers running through it and can be worn subtle during the day or more intense for nights out. On me I find Cranberry looks very metallic and the red-plum tones really come through, also if I give it a good blend at the crease it almost turns into this warm toned slight rust colour which looks so pretty and very Autumnal. Like with most MAC frost finish eye shadows the texture of Cranberry is very smooth and buttery and has such stunning pigmentation accompanied with long wear time an nil fall out. 
As I said before I've been experimenting at home with Cranberry a lot recently because I've always found it quite difficult to wear in the past without looking like I've got a sore eye which is definitely not a good look, however after playing around with it I've found that it can be worn in so many ways, more than what I first thought that's for sure. One of my favourite ways to wear Cranberry is to pop it all over my lid and lower lash line then use a matte dark brown shade through my crease to add some depth then I like to use liquid liner across my top lash line and create a winged out look and use a black kohl pencil on my waterline, using the black liners in between Cranberry really defines the look and makes it looks super pretty and separated instead of just sore ha ha. Another more subtle way to use Cranberry is by using the shade Naked from the Urban Decay Naked Palette through the crease then using a very light hand pop some Cranberry over the lid and use a matte black or dark brown eye shadow to define the top lash line instead of a liquid liner, that look is great for during the day and the colour looks so delicate.
Overall I've really been enjoying experimenting with Cranberry, the quality of the eyeshadow itself is just stunning and the shade is perfect for use during the Autumn/Winter months, I literally can't wait to use it more and incorporate it in lots of festive looks.

Will you be using Cranberry over the Autumn/Winter months beaut's?? How do you wear it?? I'd love to know.
