Oh how I love MAC. I suppose that I may be a little bit partial because when I was first trained in makeup artistry, I learned with MAC products. Even after all these years, there are still many MAC products that I prefer to any other brand of makeup. I love how affordable it is, even as a high end makeup brand, and that their products are highly pigmented and basically last forever. I also love that they are a company that gives back with the MAC AIDS Fund and their Back-To-MAC program. Did you know that you can return 6 empty MAC makeup containers and they will give you a lipstick for FREE? It’s amazing! You know what else is amazing? Giveaways! Make sure to read to the bottom of this post for information on how you can win one palette for you and one for your bestie!
The MAC Eyeshadow x 15 palettes have been a staple in my makeup bag. They are gorgeous!! Not only that, but they are FULL SIZE eyeshadows. They also contain several shades that are exclusive to the palette, which you aren’t able to buy separately.
The best part about these palettes is that they are only $65!! That is such an amazing price!! To break it down for you, if you were to go into a MAC Pro Store and build this palette (which honestly would be impossible because of the exclusive shades) it would cost $100. If you were to buy these shadows (or any 15 shadows) individually they would cost $240! So yeah, it’s an incredible deal!! If you are new to MAC products, it can get a little overwhelming because they offer so many shades and so many products. I think these palettes are the perfect place to start, and would also be the perfect gift!!
This is my fav at the moment! The colors are SO beautiful and can be used in endless combinations to create a ton of different looks. The colors are so warm and yummy! There is also a good mix of matte and shimmer, so I feel like it appeals to everyone. The shades included in the Warm Neutral palette are:
Hey– metallic coral (veluxe pearl); Warm Breeze– pastel coral (satin); Gingersnap– deep rosy pink (frost); Dark Brew– deep chocolate with pink pearl (velvet); Dance in the Dark– dark brown (matte); Brulé– soft creamy beige (satin); Vanilla Extract– soft warm yellow beige (frost); Honey Lust– bronze dipped peach (lustre); Amber Lights– peachy brown with shimmer (frost); Saddle– golden orange brown (matte); Lemon Tart– metallic gold (veluxe pearl); Creative Copper– frosted gold (lustre); Butterfudge– dirty mocha with gold pearl (satin); Divine Decadence– soft bronze (velvet); Unwind– dirty olive (veluxe pearl).
The Cool Neutral palette is equally beautiful and is perfect for when you just aren’t feeling the warmer tones. It also has one of my all time favorite shades, Brun. I love using this shade in my crease and use it often for smokey looks. This palette also has a good mix of matte and shimmer. The shades included in the Cool Neutral palette are:
Flounce– chalky white pink (matte); Sweet Allure– soft light pink (satin); Sun Tweaked– soft frosty coral (frost); After Dusk– midtonal rosy pink with pearl (veluxe pearl); Blackberry– muted burgundy plum brown (matte); Pick Me Up– pale ivory (matte); Cozy Grey– cool grey (matte); Crushed Clove– dirty gold olive (frost); Deception– chocolate gold (frost); Brun– muted blackish brown (satin); Silver Fog– white with silver pearl (lustre); French Clay– white grey frost (frost); Cumulus– dirty grey charcoal (frost); Pearled Earth– deep blue grey (veluxe pearl); Black Tied– black with silver sparkle (velvet).
To be honest with you, I did not even know this palette existed until I started writing this post! So I actually don’t own it currently but I do have several of the shades and I love them!! This is definitely on my list of makeup to buy next! This is exclusive to Nordstrom so you will not find it anywhere else! In fact, 11 of the 15 shades are exclusive to this palette and are no longer available to buy separately. The great news is that there is free shipping for all of the palettes I have listed! The shades included in the Nordstrom Now palette are:
Brulé– soft creamy beige (satin); Goldbit– (lustre); Bamboo– (matte); It’s Personal– (frost); Buckwheat– (frost); Beigey– (veluxe pearl); Wedge– soft muted beige taupe (matte); Coquette– muted greyish taupe (satin); Chains of Love-(frost); Mystery– (satin); Lovesmoke– (veluxe pearl); Fashion Beat– (lustre); Chic as Can Be– (satin); Magic Moor– (veluxe pearl); Black Tied– black with silver sparkle (velvet).
All in all, these palettes are beautiful and such a great deal!! They would make a perfect gift, or a great addition to any makeup bag! Not sure if you are ready to spend the cash??
