I thought it was about time i took you on a tour of my MAC palette and show you shade by shade what is in my palette including swatches.

(swatched from l-r) Quarry, Mystery, Omega, Satin Taupe, Patina, Wood Winked, Mulch, Sable, Fig.1, Smut.

Quarry | Described as a soft muted plum brown and i use this often as my transition colour

Mystery | Its described as a muted plum brown but i would say its just a rich brown and i use this mostly in the lash line to add definition

Omega | Is a very pale grey/taupe and a great crease shade, It would work well for your brows if your pale enough

Satin Taupe | My all time favorite outer crease shade and is such a beautiful taupe/purple shade

Patina | Is one i don't use enough of as its quite golden and would only use it for under my lower lashes

Wood Winked | Another golden shade but warmer than Patina and almost copper like and is a favorite for the outer crease

Mulch | Is a true copper and although its not a favorite as its too red for my skin tone i will find a way to get use out of it

Fig.1 | I bought to add a pop of colour to my eyeshadow but is more pink/purple than it looked on the website so sits in my palette unloved

Smut |  Is a almost black with red shimmer through it which doesn't really show on the skin and would be great used in liner or pushed into the lash line

(swatched from l-r) Kid, Folie, Charcoal brown, Nylon, Naked lunch, Jest, Shroom, Charcoal Brown

Kid | Is my favorite for the crease as its such a beautiful warm peachy brown although i think MAC might have discontinued it.

Folie | Is a beautiful red/brown and it does not get used as much at the moment as i have no room in my palette 

Nylon | Is a very pale gold and i normally use this all over the lid just for a wash of something when i have those i cant be bothered days.

Naked Lunch | I love this soft pink shade for all over the lid, I sometimes wear it on its own and i love i can wear it with any crease shade.

Jest | Is more of a peachy shade than naked lunch and slightly darker, Its a great colour to wear all over the lid

Shroom | This soft beige shade my favorite for highlighting my brow bone of my inner corner of my eye 

Charcoal Brown | For whatever reason i own 2 of the same shade and its a shade i get a lot of use out of by using it in my crease, my brows and lining my eyes

    1. Great choices! I love the look of sable x

  4. You've got some beautiful shades in this palette, did you make this yourself? I keep meaning to do it but never have all the spare cash! Fig.1 is beaaautiful and I wouldn't usually gravitate towards that sort of colour, it's so pigmented. I'm feeling more impatient to make one now x
