MAC Eyeshadow Collection!

Saturday, 15 June 2013

Hi everyone! Hope you're all well. Today I wanted to do a post that's been requested a couple of times, what's in my MAC palette. My love for MAC eyeshadows started around three years ago and from there I've collected enough of these little beauties to finally fill up one of their fifteen eyeshadow palettes. I'll start by saying almost all my shades are neutral. I'm not too crazy experimental when it comes to eyeshadows, though you will see a like the odd purplely tone now and again! Onto the shades :)

From L - R by row: Orb, All That Glitters, Malt, Brule, Ricepaper, Era, Shale, Satin Taupe, Soba.

From L - R by row: Sable, Cranberry, Omega, Charcoal Brown, Tempting, Sumptuous Olive.

I organise the shadows roughly by putting pinker tones on the top row, yellower tones on the middle and then any other colours on the bottom row.

Orb (Satin) - This colour is a very light pinky beige that I love to use all over the lid.
All That Glitters - To me, this is more of a pinky gold champagne shade thatsuits everyone.
Malt (Matte) - This is another pinky beige that I love for in the crease
Brule (Satin) - Another great all over base colour but more of a white than Orb.
Ricepaper (Frost) - One of the first shadows I got! A pretty yellowish gold.
Era (Satin) - A light beige with shimmer (slight theme going here...)
Shale (Satin) - This is a pretty mauve grey that I love for a purple smokey eye.
Satin Taupe (Frost) - This and shale are the perfect match but this colour goes with everything.
Soba (Satin) - A goldy brown with fine shimmer.
Sable (Frost) - A plummy bronze, I use this a lot.
Cranberry (Frost) - The craziest shade in my palette but I love this for dramatic eyes! A reddish purple.
Omega (Matte) - I love this in the crease as a light contour but also through the brows paired with the next shade as it's a nice light brown.
Charcoal Brown (Matte) - Again, a great matte brown crease colour and brow shade.
Tempting (Lustre) - A great true bronze.
Sumptuous Olive - A beautiful golden green colour.

I can't go too much into the finishes as I know nothing about them but it's clear looking at this that I love Satin's, Frosts and Matte's! I do like something not overly shimmery usually with matte shades in the crease so too me it makes a lot of sense to have so many! If I had to pick out four must have shades I'd have to go with All That Glitters (my all time FAVOURITE eyeshadow), Malt (great for the crease), Sable (my favourite deeper shade) and Shale (great for the pop of colour). That's all the shades I own - I would love to hear what your favourite shades are too! :)

L - R: All That Glitters, Malt, Sable, Cranberry, Brule, Ricepaper, Era, Omega, Charcoal Brown.

L - R Sumptuous Olive, Tempting, Soba, Satin Taupe, Shale.
