I've been watching youtube guru's and reading beauty blogs for so long that there are some products that i get some serious product lust over. One of the main ones has been my very own MAC eyeshadow palette. Turns out though, it's extremely pricey to build your own. But earlier in the year, MAC released a couple of pre-made palettes for a fraction of the price, so of course i jumped at the chance to own one.
I've got a couple of single MAC eyeshadows and the quality is pretty good so i had an idea of what to expect.
It comes in the traditional 15 pan MAC palettes which has a transparent lid so you can see the colours. The 15 shades in the palette are (in order) - Flounce, Sweet Allure, Sun Tweaked, Blackberry, After Dusk, Pick me up, Crushed clove, Cozy Grey, Deception, Brun, Silver Fog, French Clay, Cumulus, Pearled Earth and Black Tied.
I like the variety of shades within the palette. It's easy to create multiple looks from the palette like an everyday neutral of a more dramatic smokey eye. The pigmentation on some of the shadows is better than others. The lighter colours tend to need more building up than the darker. They last well enough throughout the day especially with a primer.
For a fraction of the price of building your own, this is a pretty good deal but there are better palettes out there. i'll enjoy using this but will i buy another? Probably not.
Do you own this product? What do you think? Tell me in the comments!
