My MAC Palette

Even though I'm so behind the times when it comes to the MAC Pro Palette, I'm still so excited to share mine with you! I love the excitement of purchasing a new shadow, unwrapping it and placing it into it's rightful slot in my palette- so satisfying.

They aren't the cheapest palettes you will ever come across but how I've viewed it is that this palette is an investment and will be something that I can keep for a lifetime. The Pro Palette Large is £10, the insert is £2.50 and each shadow is £10. So a full palette will cost £162.50 overall.

I've opted for neutral colours because I'm pretty plain when it comes to eye makeup- I really shy away from bright colours because I don't find that they suit me at all. Maybe I should be a little more brave and try some out. My collection contains a real variety of finishes which I've popped in brackets next to the name:

Shroom (Satin)- my go to base colour. It's matte with a hint of shimmer and is great for creating day and evening looks. Very versatile and a staple for any collection in my opinion.

Vanilla (Velvet) - my 'pop' colour. This is the one I use in the middle of my eye and in the inner corners. It's got a lovely shimmer to it that allows you to brighten the areas that really need it.

Mulch (Velvet)- probably one of my favourite colours so far. It's so buildable so you can create quite a subtle look or really pack it on for a dramatic smoky eye. Blends really well too.

Woodwinked (Veluxe Pearl)- so beautiful and pigmented! The Veluxe Pearl finishes are rich and luxurious and this colour is an absolute dream.

Satin Taupe (Frost)- this shadow is almost a cream consistency even though it's a powder. It's a beautiful shimmer which adds glamour to an evening eye look.

Tempting (Lustre)- my favourite shade from my current collection. It works so well with the rest of the colours and I love that it contains a fine gold glitter because who doesn't love glitter?!

I can't wait to add more shadows to my collection and fill my palette, I think I'll have to let Santa know I've been extra good this year...
