My M.A.C Eye Shadow Palettes :  M.A.C Neutral palette , Mac highlight palette ,Mac Color Palette  review and swatches :

Back with another post for you today! Yay!
I was looking through some of my old posts and I came across my M.A.C Eye Shadow Palette post that I put up quite a long time ago. I thought since I have accumulated a few more shadows (nothing crazy!) and that I sort of reorganized my palettes that I would do an updated one!
This time, I wanted to make the overview that much better so I will be including swatches of all my shadows, as well as a one sentence overall opinion. I didn’t want to go into too much depth because we don’t want to be reading a novel about MAC Eye Shadows… or do we? 🙂
I have a few new shadows, as well as a few that were in my previous post that aren’t in these palettes anymore. I currently have a few up for sale on my blog, which you can check out here.
I really hope that you enjoy this post, it took a ton of time to get all these put together and suitable for viewing! I love when people really go into the shadows and you can really see what they look like, so that’s what I aimed for! Let me know!
Let’s begin!

 In my neutral palette…
1. Mulled Cider – A cool mid-tone brown, beautiful crease color for a natural look
2. Handwritten – Quite possibly one of my favorite shadows, beautiful deep brown, stunning pigmentation.
3. Carbon – The famous matte black, my go to for darkening the outer corner or using as liner.
4. Soft Brown – My go to blending color, works as an excellent “in between” shade.
5. Espresso – Haven’t got much use out of this, more of a neutral brown, makes a good crease shade or brow filler for darker hair.
6. Coquette – Another neutral brown/gray, with a slight olive-y undertone
7. Satin Taupe – The most gorgeously pigmented taupe, beautiful on your lid or crease, or just as stunning on it’s own.
8. Amber Lights – Due to it’s intense gold and shimmer, I don’t wear this as often, but it makes a really pretty color to dust over a dark smokey eye on a night out.
9. Woodwinked – A crowd favorite, a beautiful bronze-gold that is extremely dimensional.
10. Sable – A beautiful sheen of gold, rose and bronze, I love this all on it’s own with thick liner.
11. Cork – This works wonderfully as a crease shade for a very light natural “no makeup” makeup look.
12. Copperplate – A must-have shade for blue eyed beauties, creates the most beautiful gray smokey eye to make your iris’ pop!
13. Mulch – A bride’s favorite, a deep shining brown that works beautifully in the crease 
14. Patina – Another bride’s favorite, as well as everyone else! Works beautifully on the lid for some subtle golden shine.

In my highlight palette…
1. Retrospeck – Not the best pigmentation, but this works as a great subtle inner corner highlight to brighten up your eyes.
2. Nylon – One of my go to inner corner highlight shades. It just as a beautiful shine to it, without too much of a pink or yellow undertone.
3. Unknown?! – This was one of my first MAC shadows that I bought at a CCO, but when I was depotting it the sticker ripped in half. It’s something Gold, just can’t remember it! But I guess it doesn’t matter because I am not too much of a fan, it’s very chunky and yellow. If you know the name though please let me know!
4. Blanc Type – My go to under the brow highlight. Sometimes I even like to sweep this across the lid before any other shadow to help blend.
5. Phloof – This is a beautiful inner corner highlight, it has a beautiful pink undertone. It also works well as a inner lid color for a light shimmery look.
6. Shroom – These descriptions are starting to sound repetitive, but this is a more beige undertone highlight shade, but it’s extremely versatile. 
7. Vanilla – What most wedding MU artists use on their brides, photographs beautifully and adds a beautiful highlight to your brow, and can also be dusted atop your lid to brighten it up.

 Mac Color Palette  review and swatches :Mac Color Palette

 In my color palette…
1. Paradisco – A color that screams summer, I love this coral/gold shade as a lid color in the summer.
2. Vainglorious – Limited edition from the Venomous Villains collection, a beautiful burgundy/cranberry shade. I love this for a darker eye in the winter and fall.
3. Jest – This is such a stunning shade, works as a inner corner highlight or as an inner lid color in any look.
4. Fig 1 – One of the most pigmented deep purples, absolutely stunning in your crease. If you’re daring enough to wear purple!
5. Swish – Not sure why I ever picked this up. It has a bad reputation for just being this awkward pink purple iridescent shade.
6. Cranberry – I absolutely love this shade for the same purpose as Vainglorious. I used  this on a summer bridesmaid lightly in her crease and she absolutely loved it!
7. Shadowy Lady – Definitely requires some work, pigmentation is a little touch and go. Works as a great crease color though with some effort.
8. Sumptuous Olive – I picked this up after MakeupbyTiffanyD did a tutorial with it, if you like an olive-smokey eye this is the perfect crease color, I just drool every time I swatch it.
