My First MAC Eye Shadow Palette | Neutrals | Review






Hey girlie's!!!

I celebrated my birthday recently and i was lucky enough to receive a Mac Pro Palette quad from my Mum with four gorgeous Mac eye shadows to fill the palette, i cant tell you how excited i was to finally own my very first Mac eye shadows palette eeekkk.

When deciding on what shades to start with i knew i wanted neutrals as I'm definitely a neutrals girl so i gave my Mum and few shades to choose from and i think she done a fantastic job as i love every shade she chose. The shades i got are.....

All That Glitters- A shimmery bronze/gold with pinky tones, its a veluxe pearl eye shadow that doesn't disappoint. The pigmentation is fabulous, its blends on effortlessly and looks amazing on brown eyes.

Satin Taupe- A taupe/mushroom shade with a frost finish, its an amazing all rounder eye shadow that looks great all over the lid or through the crease to create a gorgeous mid tone smokey eye .

Naked Lunch- A shimmery nude/champagne shade with a frost finish, great to use all over the lid but i love using it as a brow bone highlighter, its just so pretty.

Omega- A matte 'greige' i say that because its somewhere between a grey, brown and beige. Its the absolute perfect brow colour for me so i will probably only use it to fill in my eyebrows. 

Being a newbie to the Mac eye shadow world i didn't really know what to expect, obviously i know they are well loved but i didn't realise just how nice they actually are. All four shades i have go on so effortlessly and blend out beautifully, the pigmentation in all the shades i have are great, there's no fall out when applying, they last on my oily eyelids all day without creasing and i can already see myself buying another palette and then getting addicted to filling it with lots of eye shadows he he.

All in all I'm super impressed with the quality of the Mac eye shadows and would recommend them to everyone especially the little quad palette if your knew to MAC eye shadows like me, its just a great way to start out your very own collection with a little quad.

The little pro palette quad is priced at £6.50 and the single eyeshadow pans are £10 each.

Let me know if you have any good Mac eye shadow recommendations, id love to know for future purchases.

    1. Yeah it's the price tag that puts me off too but i think if you start with a quad palette it doesnt make it too pricey :) xoxo
