Beauty ¦ My Mac palette

Since I started blogging I've wanted a Mac palette and for christmas this year I finally got a quad. I've had a lot of interest on my instagram and on my what I got for christmas post so I thought I would do a post! 

In terms of pigmentation I've been really impressed, something I have noticed though is that they aren't quite as creamy as urban decay shadows (Which are my all time favourites) In terms of longevity they last well but as with all eyeshadows there wear time is prolonged. I find they last about 6 hours without any fading/creasing without a primer and about 8 hours with a primer.

The first shade I picked out was Patina which is the most beautiful golden brown shade. I've been loving sweeping this one over the lid and then using one of the other shades I got on the outer v and through the crease.

All that glitters is probably my favourite shade in my palette. It's a gorgeous pinky champagne shade (In the photo below it's coming across much more peachy than it is in real life.) I love this one just sweeped all over the lid on it's own as just a little hint of colour.

Woodwinked is one of the most hyped shades in the blogosphere and I completely get the hype. It looks amazing on it's own as it tends to settle a little darker in the crease. I think i'm going to get a lot of year out of it in the summer as it's the most amazing summery bronze goddess type shade. 

The final shade in my palette is satin taupe, i've been wearing this with patina and I really love the way they look together. It's the perfect shade to add a bit of dimension in the crease, it also looks gorgeous smoked along the lower lash line.

  6. Love this post! Funnily enough, I own Satin Taupe and All that Glitters, and I used to have Woodwinked but it ran out! Great picks - i can certainly vouch for those 3, they are amazing! All that Glitters is my favourite, it goes really well with MAC Cranberry as well :)
