MAC Uninterrupted eyeshadow, a rediscovery!

MAC Uninterrupted eyeshadow (in Pro Longwear format - discontinued)

Hi friends!

I had a true “shop my stash” moment recently that I just needed to tell you all about. Years ago I got really into muddy browns, mustard yellows & sepia tones on my eyes; I think it happened around the time I became a redhead. I found that warm colors on my eyes looked great against the warmth of my new hair color. So when I saw MAC Uninterrupted eyeshadow (a new product around 2013 / 2014) featured in a Pixiwoo YouTube tutorial, I jumped all over it!

Originally it came out as a Pro Longwear eyeshadow (the ones that are sold in the larger pans). I loved it sooo much! It was like all my sepia-colored dreams came true. But in famous MAC fashion, it got discontinued somewhere over the years. So I felt I could never talk about it much; what’s worse than hearing someone rave about a product you can’t get? Also, I lost sight of it in my collection as newer items came in throughout the years.

THE REDISCOVERY

A few weeks back, I was going through my collection, doing a bit of a declutter, and happened upon my “lost” but beloved Uninterrupted eyeshadow. It was like a revelation, how could I have forgetton such a little gem?! I immediately started using it again, and oh wow, what a beaut! And bonus of all bonuses, last year MAC brought Uninterrupted back as a single eyeshadow. I don’t have to feel bad about professing my love anymore!

THE COLOR & Texture

Uninterrupted is a beautiful warm brown with a strong orange/yellow undertone. It’s a matte texture that applies quite evenly across the eye using a large fluffy brush; it can tug a tiny bit and be ever so slightly patchy but nothing too offensive in my eyes (ha, I hate puns). The pigment here is really strong so it takes nearly no time at all to get a really beautiful smokey eye. It’s important to conceal any red or pink on your face when using a color like this, as it can really amplify those tones and make you appear a bit sickly.

You can shop Uninterrupted on MAC’s website here.

THE LOOK

I love to create a big, smudgey smokey eye with this color. It’s insanely easy & quick. I just apply it all over my lid, up into my crease and even above it, making sure to blend out the edges really well. Then I just smudge the color along the lower lash line and blend it down ever so slightly lower than I normally would. (Again, don’t skip concealer with a look like this! Unless you want that kind of ‘hollow’ look.) That’s it! No liner or extra shadows needed.

I just love the grunginess of this color; cool grunginess of course! I feel like it brings out my brown eyes, but it would look particularly amazing if you have lighter eyes or blue eyes.

Hi! I’m Erica, a makeup enthusiast based outside of NYC. I discovered my love of cosmetics back in 2011 when I started watching simple tutorials on YouTube. It was a revelation to me that with just a simple few swipes of mascara or dabs of blush, you could transform into a more enhanced version of yourself. My obsession has not abated over the years, but instead has grown stronger as the beauty industry has gone from strength to strength. After graduating from business school in 2018, I decided to finally share my thoughts and opinions on all things cosmetics and this is where ‘We are glamerus’ was born. I share my musings on a bi-weekly basis on everything from my holy grail products and preferred application techniques, to the latest trends overtaking the beauty world. I hope you enjoy! xo

  1. Beautiful color and great with your complexion. I must say that now there are many eyeshadows with the general color of Uninterrupted. At the time it came out I would hazard a guess that it was a one of a kind !

  2. MAC has a thing for discontinuing the best colors don’t they? I’m so glad they brought this back and you don’t have to guilt trip about sharing it!

    Sepia tones are beautiful—I particularly like to use them in the fall.

    1. Yes they do! I feel like it’s a big part of their business model. I love sepias any time of year, frankly. I’ve been known to crack this out in July in the past! 😆

    1. It is! My hair is still currently reddish, it just looks different in different lights. Red hair can be really tricky in that way, and it fades really quickly too.

  3. Thanks for an easy tutorial! I love this colour and have one that is similar in tone that I’ll be wearing today. I was going to go with a liner and blend in another colour but after seeing this I think I’ll just keep it simple with the mascara and let the colour do the talking. Thanks Erica…you look gorgeous!

    1. Thanks so much Pamela! I’m curious, what color do you have that’s similar in tone? I’m always looking to be enabled with makeup! 😆

  4. Ah! So nice to fall back in love with an already owned product. 🙂 This shade looks lovely on you, Erica! It does bring out your eyes. ♡
