A good month ago, I had a little freak out and decided to buy 12 random MAC eyeshadows. I asked the lady on the phone to read some names out over the phone and I picked some that sounded good.
Yes I really did this. What it is, I bought a cute 12 pan empty palette from eBay (seller: Celia_makeup) – I like it cos its smaller than the normal MAC palette, and its easy to carry round.
Yes I bought shadows for the palette. It was a mental breakdown in the form of cosmetic shopping.
It arrived in the little black box, as they do and I haven’t touched it until now….which is a sign of pointless purchase, no?
Nevermind. I bought some MAC shadows people are forever using in tutorials and what not. Here they are in my palette:
Bit of blue, bit of green, bit of black…a nice mix, no?
Here are the shadows in their pans. I am sure you mac-a-loonies have seen these all before but there the are again anyway…
There must be something wrong with my vanilla shadow cos there’s not much pigment. Its really hard to get anything off the pan. Shame, as its the perfect neutral.
Super silver glitter in black. Nice, nice. Surprisingly un-trannylike.
A matte white! I don’t think I own another plain matte white. Useful I guess.
A matte black – useful once again.
A really pretty metallic blue. Like it!
Harder to wear than I thought it would be, but its ok.
My kitty is called Electra which is why I bought this! A typical metallic silver.
Everyone goes on about this, and yes, its nice.
Something sort of old school about this – I used to buy shadows and liners in this kind of colour all the time. Its ok.
A green shade with bits of blue in it – nice again. Not WOAH nice, but AHH nice.
It is what it says on the tin! Bronze!
Dark plum with shimmers – very nice! I just wish I had other colours to go with it.
Did I miss any other MAC shadows worth buying? If so, which shades? Tell me in the comments!
