I have been slowly re-adding to my Mac eyeshadow collection ever since they brought the price of the single pans down to €7. For a long while I had just stopped buying them and even gave a host of them away. As other brands came onto the market like Makeup Geek or even now Penneys that do great single pans, buying exclusively Mac just wasn’t necessary.
As the price is a bit more affordable and Mac is a more readily available for us too with Brown Thomas, Arnotts and even ASOS selling it now. Although, ASOS don’t sell just the pans. I’ve been using it as an excuse to buy up some of the colours I’ve always wanted to try buy just never got around to over my makeup loving years. And some old favourites. I’m not really buying basics as in transition shades or anything, just shades that take my fancy, although that may change. Never say never 🙂
My Mac eyeshadow collection is way smaller than it used to be, but I thought this might be helpful, just in case, like me, there’s certain shades you want to try. I can update it as I pick up more, and be sure to leave me suggestions in the comments below of other cool single pans to pick up.
I feel like I’m starting again with my collection and it feels good, I won’t lie.
Nine pans are all that adorn my new pro palette at the minute, but they’re very nice pans, and I’m happy with them all 🙂
From left to right we have:
Naked Lunch, a frosted pale, nearly the same colour as my skin tone kinda shade.
All That Glitters is another pale frost with a bit more of a peach tone.
Satin Taupe is exactly what it say on the tin.
Woodwinked is a warm brown metallic shade.
Amber Lights is a warm copper with a frosty finish.
Coppering is a warm copper with a frost finish.
Vex is completely new to me, I’ve never owned it before. It’s a pale frost with like a pewter shift to it and I just thought it looked interesting.
Club is one of my favourite Mac eyeshadows. It has a duo chrome finish and looks different with how you apply it. It shifts brown and green.
Lastly we have Cranberry. It’s a warm frosted cranberry shade.
Here’s some of them in action on my eyeballs really simply.
