These full-sized MAC shadows are $5.60 each. That definitely caught my attention last week when the person I was meeting for lunch was fifteen minutes late and I was on the same block as a MAC store. For a while I had been considering building my own palette of warm neutral shadows, specifically for transition shades. Strangely enough, I have about 10 palettes but none that have a significant amount of transition shades: I need to go into each one for whichever shade I’m looking for at the moment. This palette may be MAC’s response to the Urban Decay Naked Palette (which, honestly, I rarely even use) but I’m convinced it’s actually MAC’s response to my eye shadow dreams. I’ve been wearing the middle column with Ruby Woo and other cool red lipsticks nonstop, I love it.
This 15 shadow palette ($85/$160 value, Pro discount not applicable) also comes in cool tones. If you’re not looking to throw down such a large chunk of change, they also have these 9-shadow palettes for $40 and the Pro discount is applicable. While this one is significantly more expensive than the typical $50 palettes at Sephora, I prefer a carefully selected palette filled with consistently textured shadows in shades I will use regularly over some of the more hit or miss shades in other brands’ palettes. For professionals especially, I think this is a great option. I like to support MAC because I admire their focus on artistry, which isn’t necessarily matched by every cosmetics company..
Fairly simple looks I created with this palette.
My little sister and her very beautiful friend, also wearing this palette on their eyes. They were going to be on stage, so I went a little heavier than I usually would on these young gorgeous faces.
All The Best,
