MAC Unsung Heroes: MAC Oh My Mocha Eye shadow

Oh My Mocha!
I think the Internet may be giving people, and by “people,” I mean me, this belief that they can do *anything* just by looking it up online, because yesterday I made the most questionable (translation: gross) mocha at home.

What’s an unsung makeup hero? For me, it’s an often underrated makeup morsel, a permanent collection product that scoots under the radar screen of many makeup lovers but frequently rocks my world. The long-running Unsung Heroes series features some of my favorites.

I had just put on a little MAC Oh My Mocha Eye shadow ($16) and thought, “I’m gonna drink a mocha while I’m wearing Oh My Mocha,” because the idea seemed kinda poetic, but then I looked outside and saw that a creepy, supernatural fog had descended upon my neighborhood…


MAC Oh My Mocha Eye Shadow, meow!
It gets foggy here sometimes, especially in the mornings in fall and winter, and when it happens, it’s usually foggy at the crack of dawn but burns off quickly.

Yesterday, though, started out sunny, but then it got horror movie foggy… It was that creepy cemetery fog that appears out of nowhere right before the main character walks into it and disappears forever.

Anyway, I wasn’t brave enough to walk outside in it, but it did make me crave a mocha.

The coffee/milk/cocoa combo…
A little whipped cream makes everything better? Mielestäni?!
So I googled a recipe, mixing coffee, milk, cocoa powder and sugar, and then added a boat load of whipped cream on top. Aaand it pretty much tasted like a pair of old Doc Martens with chocolate sauce, BLUH!

Noh. At least I think my eyeshadow turned out pretty sweet.

Oh My Mocha is a must for smoky eye-lovin’ ladies. I mean, I’m always into smoky eyes, 24/7 x 365, but they seem extra appropriate this time of year. right now I’m into the kind where you just plop a little eyeshadow on your lids, whip out a brush to blend out the edges, and then go about your merry way.

Oh My Mocha is a perfect mix of frosty, festive cranberry purple pigment wrapped in a coffee-colored base, so when you lay down a layer, then buff away the edges with your brush, the cranberry/purple part dissipates into a decadent, delicious dark coffee.

Lopputulos? instant smoke.

To kick it up a notch, I like to dip a flat eyeshadow brush into my pan, wet it with MAC Fix+ to ramp up the shimmer, and pat it on my lids. I think it really makes the gold flecks peek through. and did I mention the fallout factor is practically nill?

Oh My Mocha is absolutely delicious in every single way…unlike my at-home mocha, which I ended up tossing. next time I’m just going to Starbucks, horror movie fog be damned.
