My MAC Cosmetics Eyeshadow Palette | Swatches & Depotting Video!!!

I can definitely say my go to transition and crease color eyeshadow shades come from MAC Cosmetics.  We all know MAC Cosmetics is a globally known brand in the beauty world.  They’re one of the first makeup company’s that come to mind when you think of makeup.

When first starting out in makeup, a common question is what are the must have shades from MAC Cosmetics.  I don’t wear eyeshadow everyday but I am still slowly building my perfect neutral MAC eyeshadow palette.  MAC Cosmetics eyeshadows (well at least the ones I have) are really pigmented so you don’t have to keep applying over and over.  They also blend really well and not much work is needed in order to get a great even application.

The shades I chose while creating this palette are all neutral shades, some I choose to use for transition or crease colors.  Some are also great as a under brow or as a inner tear duct highlight shade.  My go to shade has always been Brown Script with Espresso to warm up the outer corner of my eyes.  I wanted to switch it up a bit so I recently decided to pick up a few more shades to add to the palette.

So far I have 9 shades in all and even though my whole palette isn’t filled I decided to swatch them for you guys anyway.

I usually purchase the individual pan refills of the eyeshadows from MAC Cosmetics but there was one individual eyeshadow in the plastic MAC packaging.  Back in 2013, I attended Kluemoi’s holiday makeup class and in the gift bag I received the single eyeshadow in the shade Arena.  I love to use this shade as an under the brow highlight that doesn’t make my hooded lids too noticeable but I haven’t reached for it in forever since it wasn’t in my palette.

That is until now!

I decided to finally depot my MAC Arena eyeshadow and add it into my palette.  I am so happy to now have Arena as a part of my neutral MAC eyeshadow palette.  Want to see how I depotted my single MAC eyeshadow?  Check out the video below and get a bonus look at the latest new goodies I picked up during my recent trip to MAC.

Any suggestions for the next MAC eyeshadow shades I should add to my palette?  What are your favorite eyeshadows?

Let me know down in the comments.

Until Next Time, Stay Blessed Beauties!!!

    I love the colors, I am still learning and testing what colors work well for me and my style when it come to eye shadow, but I would love to try some of those colors…Thanks for sharing!

  • Albertine

    Expensive pink is definitely my favourite, it looks gorgeous!

  • Holly

    I don’t really wear eyeshadows. It is pretty rare, but these are really nice! Expensive pink really pops too.

  • Expensive Pink is so pretty! My favorite mac shades are All That Glitters, Jest, Nylon and Woodwinked!

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    MAC is definitely underrepresented in my stash. I need to check out the shadows. Yours are so pretty, especially Expensive Pink.

  • Laura

    OOh what a great collection you have. I have Expensive Pink too after seeing it on Lily Melrose blog and I love it! xxx

  • You have a lot of the same shadows I have. Expensive pink has been my go-to shade for years. Embark is great for the brow.

  • I’ve been eyeing Sketch for awhile! It looks like it’d be a nice outer-V shade. My only MAC shadow is Bold & Brazen from a LE collection a few years ago, but I’d love to expand and get some from their permanent line!

    Love how you present all the colors! So descriptive! I only wear MAC eyeshadow. I love the grays and Blues and I have a dark bronze color.

    Love the pigmentation in MAC! My favorite is “expensive pink”, and I like “embark” as well. Thanks for the depotting vid, def good to know for future references.

    I love a good neutral but I rarely wear eyeshadow cuz my makeup skills are at novice level 🙂
