One of the best MAC eyeshadows. I absolutely love this eyeshadow. I use it everyday to fill in my brows, and I also use it in the outer corner of my eye to intensify any nuetral eyeshadow look. Mystery is a cool toned medium to dark brown and looks really nice on cool toned skins. If your warmer toned handwritten is a good reddish based medium dark brown that is also nice.

Mystery is one of my all time favorite mac eyeshadows. It's a dark cool toned brown that is perfect for the outer corner and adding smokiness to any look. I also really like this for my eyebrows, because it's cool tone it looks really natural and doesn't clash with my ashy dark brown hair like a lot of reddish eyeshadows do. However I have to say that I'd your more of a warmer complexion or you have more golden tones in your hair you might want to try handwritten eyeshadow. It is also a dark brown but is more red based and complements warmer skintones better that mystery will.

Can I please give this eyeshadow 10 lipsticks?! I LOVE THIS!


For some reason, when I buy dark brown MAC eyeshadows I go for the ones with red tones. While they look great on my skintone I was looking for something that was just a plain brown - this eyeshadow was exactly what I was looking for. The website says its "plum brown" but goes on mostly brown. I love wearing this in my crease and outer V with something like Blanc Type or Brule on my lid. It also looks great in the crease with Satin Taupe, or in the crease with "Charcoal Brown" on my lid. Amazing on the lid with something like "Carbon" in the crease/outer V for a smoky brown eye.


Like most MAC eyeshadows it goes on nicely, lasts all day with an eye primer and blends VERY nicely. If you like neutrals like me this is a definite must for your eyeshadow collection. I will definitely repurchase when I run out. One of my favorite MAC eyeshadows for sure! Extremely versatile and a must have for me!

Hell YES! The most perfect brown shadow ever. This one is my go to shade and I seriously love it.

I've often got problems finding browns that suits my natural coloring, my fair skin and dark brown hair are both very ashy. When I got this the MAC employee I talked to said "Should you really get a shade THIS ashy for your brows..?" to me, and I was like "HAHA yeah I guess..?"

So as I said, I mostly use it for my brows and in my lashline for everyday make up. If I'm doing smokey brown eye looks I prefer this one or Handwritten. Go MAC, your neutral shadows might be the star of the whole brand.

This was one of the very first Mac shadows I ever bought(I got a quad with 4 shades). I have owned this for a year and a half and have hardly any dip because a little goes a long way. It's a cool matte gray/brown and unlike Espresso there are no red tones in it at all, which suits me much better. I used to use this every single day as my crease and outter v no matter what shade I had on my lid and it really added a great smokey feel and darkened up any look without being harsh like Carbon, I hate Carbon, to me brown is less harsh. This is definitly my "go-to" crease color and if I wasn't on this new kick where I only us a paint pot, 1 shade on the lid and a highlight I would still be using this. I think it's a tad harder to blend than other shades I own but it's still my favorite. I would repurchase this again if needed.

My new favorite mac eyeshadow, the color is very versatile and and natural. It's a greyish brown and not shimmery at all. All month I've been using this and I'm loving it.

My eyes this month:
Mac bisque all over the lid and brow bone
Mac mystery lightly in the crease and applied a little darker in the outter corner
Mac Era applied to the lid and up to brow bone
Mac Vapour as highlight in inner corner and on brow bone
Mac fluid line in dipdown

Those colors are great for everyday and can be adjusted from light to dark. But in my opinion mystery is the starlett because it give the most definition.

This was one of the first eyeshadows I ever bought from MAC and it is still one of my favourites. It is a perfect crease colour. Looks very nice paired with Jest.

Some MAC eyeshadows are better off being used a brow powders, and some can be used on both lids and brows. I think this is one of them if you use it lightly. It's an ash brown, so for people who don't want a warm brown like Espresso, then this is a good option. I don't like the look of a warm shadow on my brows at all because it just looks more red and takes away the natural shade. I discovered it's double use online from another artist. Even though it's a satin, there isn't a sheen. If you want to go darker, then Brun is the next in line.

I like the color but I found a dupe that's cheaper and applies smoother. It's Revlon's new Luxurious Color eyeshadows, they have a variety of finishes: pearle, satin, and matte. The shade I'm referring to is called Rich Sable from the Matte collection. Even though it's suppose to be different finishes (Mac's Mystery is Satin and Revlon's is Matte) it's not much different, they both look pretty matte to me. I've been noticing MAC's eyeshadows can tend to be chalky and apply patchy when it doesn't have shimmer, don't really know why. Their other finishes are fine like the velux pearle, frost, etc. Revlon's is not like that, it's smooth and applies evenly and costs 3 times less. Give it a try if you are considering Mac's eyeshadow in Mystery.

Beautiful mix of grey and brown. Nice in the crease and as a liner. Unique color that is definitely worth adding to your collection.
