An absolute classic and the only MAC eyeshadow I have ever hit the pan with (twice). I'm going to another city to buy a new one this weekend and it's worth the drive because
1. It's a neutral colour and therefore works with EVERYTHING.
2. It's the most versatile shade I own because I can use it for my brows and as a shadow. It works brilliantly as an eyeliner too and can even be used to do detailed contouring.
3. It's beyond beautiful and a very flattering shade.

I usually do not like to spend money on MAC eyeshadows since now days it is so easy to find cheeper dupes of practically any color they have. However, I decided to splurge on Mystery just because I was looking for a deep, cool toned brown. I have a few brown eyeshadows in my makeup collection but non of them seem to come even close in the shade as Mystery. It's a really lovely color if you're looking for a natural every day look. I use it in combination with MAC's Bloom On pro-stay eyeshadow and it creates such a beautiful dusty pink/smoky brown look.
I am a fan!

Love for my contour. :) I was recommended it by the makeup artist and was surprised since it was just an eyeshadow. But I love multi functional products, and this is definitely one. With a small angled contour brush (And lots of blending) it looks flawless. A gorgeous color on my eyes too and so velvety soft! It's tiny, but pigmented and easy to build, so I don't need a lot and I see it lasting a while!

I love mystery its my go to everyday color. The color itself is more of a matte. It pairs nicely with satin taupe and vanilla pigment.

Another one that looked nice in the pan and barely showed up on my skin. I am about as while as paper and this was barely noticable. Not a fan.

Very neutral dark brown with a satin finish, I am in love with it.
It was my first MAC eyeshadow and it didn't dissapoint.
As a liner, for brows, all over my lid, just the outer V... you can do anything with it. I highly recommend it.

I used this daily for years. It was so versatile, I used it to fill my brows, as liner, as shadow.

I love this product!!!!

I have a VERY DARK brown hair and this eyeshadow is PERFECT!

This is a great multi-purpose color. I use it as a lining color and crease color. I also use it a lot on the outer corner of my eyes to give more depth. The color is very versatile. Because it is not a warm brown, I can use it for both a warm look or cooler colors.
The only complaint I have with Mystery, is that it can be a little crumbly in the pan sometimes. Not as smooth as other MAC shadows, but I'm fine with it because it is quite easy to blend when it is on the lids.

I went into the mac store and told a pretty blonde girl with awesome eye makeup I wanted a cold, dark brown eyeshadow without the annoying red undertones in it. Her expertise mathed her flawless makeup application, because she soon showed mystery and swatched it on her hand for me, and it was love at first sight! I combine it with orb as a base colour and then just apply this on my lid and blend it into the crease to emphasize my eyes more. It's pigmented and doesn't fall out when I apply it, which is a huge plus. I hate it when eyeshadows Smulders and practically attacks my lower eyes and cheekbones. I don't know the staying power since I combine it with UDPP, which even holds onto the cheap stuff like superglue. But I guess it lasts longer than most eyeshadows without a primer too, judging from the views, but it would most likely crease and smudge on my super oily eyelids anyway, so I won't take the chance.
I also discovered that it was great for filling in patches on my eyebrows I'm growing out at the moment. The shade is a perfect match for my dark brown brows, but I can imagine it being a bit too much for a blonde or someone with naturally light brows.
This is definitely a basic must have for every mac eyeshadow palette no matter what kind of skin or haircolour you have.
