My Mac Quad

Mac Custom Palette Eyeshadow x 4 - $48.00 

I have a new romance in my life: my little Mac palette that I got as a gift for my 19th birthday this past month. Choosing four eyeshadows was one of the most difficult feats I have faced thus far (slight hyperbole). I trusted Tanya Burr and went with some of her favorites. Woodwinked was the one eyeshadow there was no question about because it truly is the most magnificent golden bronze. I was initially planning on getting All That Glitters in place of Blanc Type but I chose to be sensible and went with a light matte color to use as a base for the other three. Sumptuous Olive, which I thought was called "Scrumptious Olive" (the sales rep must have taken me for a noob) is a lovely green-gold which pairs well with my green eyes. Last but not least, I chose Satin Taupe because it was just too beautiful to leave behind. I love the Mac eyeshadows, although they are horrifically expensive, and I cannot wait to wear more color on my lids because of this palette! What are your must-have Mac eyeshadows?


  1. These are super pretty colours!


  2. Lovely shades, particularly like woodwinked! Xx

  3. I love the Olive shade! That's high on my list along with Cranberry :) x

  4. Love your choice of colours, although Woodwinked just never looks good on me! Patina, Sketch and All That Glitters are some shades that I'd highly recommend :) x

  9. How exciting! I bought a two of my first ever mac eyeshadows last week! I went for vanilla and satin taupe (such a pretty colour!). I think you chose well :) xx

  10. Ooh, such nice picks! I have all four of those shades and they're really lovely. Not so typical neutrals! :)


  11. I can honestly say I've never had a mac eye shadow! I've always thought about them and they look like they have good payoff, but I've been pretty frugal! This kind of makes me very tempted though!
    P.S- thanks for the comment on my blog! :)

  12. The photos you take are so perfect, clear and pretty!

    Love Sim x
