Pretty no? I finally filled my MAC pro palette today!
I felt pretty accomplished! haha is that sad?
Though I am not in love with MAC shadows, the glorious selection of colors they offer definitely is hard to ignore sometimes , in this case 15 times!
I am calling this my MAC Neutral Palette although not everything is neutral. These should definitely hold me off for a while from buying more,unless some beautiful limited edition ones come up of course
Top to bottom, Left to Right
Shroom, Phloof!,N*ked Lunch, All that Glitters, Patina
Retrospect, Tempting, Woodwinked, Sable, Mulch
Satin Taupe, Shale, Shadowy Lady, Knight's Divine, Black Tide
Shroom: voted in Allure as best highlight, probably the worst e/s I have tried from the brand, not sure why everyone loves it, little unpigmented for me-light cream
Phloof!: Favorite inner corner highlight-Shimmering cream highlight
N*ked Lunch: Love how this can go in the inner corner while also being able to create a beautiful wash over any paint pot-Darker tan highlight
All That Glitters: Was part of my very first MAC purchase, very well loved and used
Beautiful tan with slight pink undertone
Patina: Admit tingly I purchased this after seeing so many Olivia Palmero tutorials, where everyone used Patina! I am a sucker so I bought this. - Safe shimmery tan
Retrospect: Alot of fall out but gorgeous gold at times when applied with a wet brush-mix of cream and gold with alot of glitter
Tempting: the color of old gold, pretty shimmer
Woodwinked: Bit lighter than tempting with less larger glitters but more shimmer, looks better if you are tanned I have heard
Sable: Also along with my 1st MAC purchase ever, gorgeous plum brown, one of my favorites
Mulch: Terrible name, gorgeous brown!If Sable and Tempting made a baby it would be Mulch.
Sometimes I find this more favorited than Sable
Satin Taupe: Bought this for the hype but so far it is not working on me, I am going to keep trying though! i can see from the pan the color is worth the effort. -Brown Taupe
Shale: Light wash of greyed purple to bring out brown eyes
Shadowy Lady: Dark purple with a black? undertone. Teamed with shale creates an intense smokey eye away from the conventional colors
Knights Divine: Gotta have a gorgeous gunmetal silver with shimmer for a quick smokey look
Black Tide: Because Carbon was too flat for me, and I wanted some shimmer
What are your favorite MAC shadows?
I am in love with N*ked Lunch, All that Glitters, Sable, and Mulch
My go to in a quad!
