The palette on the left is one that I use the least. I don’t find myself reaching for the colours all that much but I just can’t bear the thought of getting rid of them! It contains Sable, a lovely bronze with a hint of purple that is great for a smokey eye (especially if you have green eyes), a random Milani shadow which looks suspiciously like MAC Sumptuous Olive is you ask me, Antiqued which is a very reddy bronze, I can never seem to get it to work for me but does look nice lined on the undereye and finally Patina which is a bit of a staple in a lot of people’s collections. I don’t find the cool tones of it too flattering, but it is a nice one just to pop all over the lids as it has a slight duochrome effect. Then on the right is the palette that I reach for daily! Of course the one (and only) eyeshadow that I have actually hit pan on is All That Glitters – my favourite neutral eyeshadow! Such a gorgeous creamy, nude with a hint of pinky gold; I could go on. Next to that is Smut, one that I don’t think gets enough love on here – it’s a dirty, purple brown – the perfect crease colour and evening accompaniment with All That Glitters. Aside from All That Glitters, Espresso is probably my next most used colour as it’s my everyday brow shadow. Simples. Finally there is Woodwinked. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with it, and I do think that it’s one that (on me personally) requires a bit of tan-age before, or the orange-y tones in it can make me look a little ill. It also is a requirement that you wear this with dark liner or you will look like you have pink-eye. And on that note….
There once was a time when I dreamed of having every single MAC neutral eyeshadow that you could possibly own (like at least 50), have colour co-ordinated, labelled palettes and spend ages in the morning meticulously applying lid, crease and ‘smokey v’ colours. I have since come back down to earth, realised that there are only about 10 eyeshadows that I like to use on repeat and been on a bit of an eyeshadow ban since. Back in the day I had one of the huge MAC 15-Pan Pro Palette thingys, filled in with a ton of shadows that I never really touched, then had a huge clearout and got rid of most of them in a Blog Sale. Now I only own 7 MAC eyeshadows and they are housed in much easier to store 4-Pan Pro Palettes. I quickly flashed one in a video and so many of you asked what colours they were, so I thought I would show you my MAC Palettes.
