One of my favourite Mac eyeshadows. Twinks is stunning on my grey/blue/greeny eyes. It is quite sheer but will apply much more pigmented if you wet your brush first. I don't like to waste this colour in my crease because I think it really comes to life when you build it up on the lid for a gorgeous vampy plummy red brown smokey eye.

I have been using this for years, as a way to deepen my crease. The first one I bought seemed smoother, more pigmented. Unfortunately, it ended up landing on the floor and shattering in millions of pieces... Although I had already hit pan on it, it broke my heart and sent me straight back to the MAC store! I repurchased it, and interestingly the new shadow I got seems stiffer. The colour also seems a tad more red-toned. I don't really mind, as I love a good-quality sheer eyeshadow. They blend like a dream and are hard to overdo. That's exactly the way I feel about this one. It layers beautifully, you can get a deeper colour that way. I can also use it with a wet brush if I ever feel like getting more pigment out of it.

A lot of people complain about the pigmentation with this product, but I had no problems. I use it with All That Glitters for an every day look and it's heaven. The texture is so soft. I for one don't like products that are too heavily pigmented but it's not so little pigmented that you have to put on a good few coats before you can see it. It's just perfect. One of my favourite MAC eyeshadows.

Twinks is a reddened plum brown with a HINT of bronze. The colour is beautiful because it changes in the light! It is very multidimensional! I will not repurchase Twinks though because of the following reasons. Firstly, the pigmentation and texture was quite poor. I don't know if I just got a dud, but i literally had to DIG my brushes into it to get decent payoff! It was a time-consuming colour to apply, and the shadow seemed to 'lock up' in the pan. I feel that for a high end product, that shouldn't happen. So I removed a lippie for that.The second reason I won't repurchase Twinks, is because it didn't work that well with my yellowy skin tone. It pulled a little mauve/taupe on my warm features and looked a little ashy. For reference, Mulch, which is the golden equivalent to this, works perfectly with my colouring.

Was not sure about this color at first but then I fell in love! A beautiful rich brown shade with hints of plum. Has turned out to be a favorite. I use in rotation with Mulch my other fav!

Twinks is really my everyday staple on my moving eyelid. On my NW 55 skin it's very neutral and accentuates my eyes. When I finish this I will definitely repurchase.

Twinks looks like a gorgeous color in the pan, but it has a horrible texture... I don't know what the fine people at MAC were smoking when they decided that Twinks is a veluxe pearl, because it isn't even close. This eyeshadow is super dry and sheer... I thought it would make a really cool crease shade, but the only way I can make it work is to DIG into it with a 239 and really pack it on the lid... and even when I do that I still don't love the color. I gave the first one I had to my mother because she really wanted it, then I bought a second thinking that one was a dud. It wasn't, they were both crap. if you scrap off a good amount of it, it gets a little better... but you shouldn't have to do that when buying a "high end" eyeshadow.

Twinks is a red/plum brown warm shade. Twinks is another color I bought hoping it would bring out the blue in my lenses, which it didn't.The pigmentation is not so good, need to pack it on. Blends easily. Medium lasting power. I use it as a lid or crease color.I'm not very happy with this one, but again it's not so horrible. I just don't find myself going for it a lot. Actually of all my 18 eyeshadows by MAC, this is the one I least go for. I prefer my MAC pigment in Gold Stroke, which is similar to Twinks only so much better in terms of everything :)Won't repurchase.

I had been looking for a plum colored e/s and after reading the rave reviews I decided to give Twinks a try. This color did not work for me at all. I was surprised that given it was a Veluxe Pearl, I was still fighting with the application . It was grabbing and was not smooth. Coupled with the fact that the color looked muddy on me (dirty, greyish-plum), I ended up trying to blend it with several different colors (All that glitters and Naked lunch) before I left the house to make it look presentable. I don't have that kind of time. For reference, I'm a C3/NC20/NC25.
