On the mornings where I'm in a rush (which is almost every morning) it is so easy to pop on some primer, sweep this over my lids, lightly blend into the crease, top it off with mascara and have eye makeup that looks like it took more effort than it did. I have greenish eyes and this golden-bronze really brings that out and is very flattering, I think this looks good on all eyes however (a friend of mine who has hazel eyes also loves it and it looks great on her). It has good staying power, beautiful and pigmented colour...I would repurchase!
Paired with "mulch" this gives me a nice bronzy eye. Against my NC45 skintone it translates quite nicely on the lid. A nice shimmering understated yellow bronze. Will definitely repurchase once I hit pan.
My NAKED palette was always my go to... I heard such wonderful reviews about Woodwinked and thought I had to give it a try. It appears in the pan VERY gold, but you actually need to apply this a couple times to really make it POP, or you can go over the lid once or twice for a more subtle effect. Either way, this shade is phenomenal. Not too "in your face" gold like some other eye shadows are. Perfect for day, and you can add a deep color in the crease for night as well. Great on all skin tones!
I would describe 'Woodwinked' as a medium bronze with a warm orange undertone once applied. It is a Veluxe Pearl finish which has shimmer to it but its finely milled so its a great no fuss eyeshadow.
What I really love about this shade (and many others do too!), is that it can be applied just on its own without any other colours and once blended into the crease it darkens into a orange tone so it looks like you have applied a crease colour. So its only you who knows that all it took was the one product and much less effort!
I have a warm medium olive skin tone and I find this shade suits me well. Colour payoff is good but I do find I need to press a little harder to pick up what I need. Other than that, a beautiful eyeshadow that will always be in my collection. Highly recommend!
I /really/ wanted to love this eyeshadow. I'm really disappointed with it. It looks very bad with brown eyes (in my opinion). And a fair skin tone is definitely a no-no when it comes to wearing this. The quality is pretty good, but the hype about this shade is ridiculous. It's just unflattering.
I love love love this HG eyeshadow color!!! I have medium olive skin with dark brown eyes and black hair and this color is perfect to use for a natural look allover the lid with cork or soft brown blended in the crease or you can use a dark brown like expresso or a black color like carbon in the crease for a sexier smokey eye look. I keep this in my pro quad palette (along with soft brown another HG eyeshadow and 2 other e/s that i'll occasionally rotate around), which goes with me everywhere and is always in my makeup bag! I also never leave this color at home when I'm on vacation since it's so versatile. I love the silkiness of this eyeshadow too!
**EDIT** I changed my review to will not repurchase since M.A.C DOES test on animals :(
I would much rather support cruelty free brands like Urban Decay
bought this not too long ago. I really think this is one of the few mac eyeshadows worth purchasing. On my light-medium warm skintone it shows up as a lovely golden bronze shade. Such an awesome all over the lid color... it doesn't turn orange-y on me. it's smooth and pigmented and I'm glad I traded honey lust in for woodwinked
Woodwinked is my default glamour shadow. I like to manipulate my shadows, and this one is great for that. I can layer it with black, purple, green, etc. and it just makes everything else BETTER. By itself it is a deep, shimmery nude color that glides on smoothly and a little goes a really long way. I have never worn this by itself, but I know as a serial layering girl, this is a must have for me.
I think this is a beautiful eyeshadow for the right skin tone. I am NC 25/30 for reference and sadly, this just comes out almost orange on me. However, when I used it on a friend who is NC45 it looked amazing and golden! I think that you have to be careful as this looks much better on those with warm skin tones, and much much better on darker skin tones. If you have deep skin this is the most beautiful shade, but if you are fair, try it first at the store before you buy. The orange lean is definitely something to be aware of.
I've used many gold eyeshadows as I have blue/green eyes and it really brings them out... however, nothing compares to Woodwinked.
I bought it by reccomendation for a "Nina Dobrev" tutorial on youtube, and it was my first ever mac product. I love it, it lasts so long and it really is stunning. I've also seen it look incredbile on brown eyes! xx
