One of my all time favourite pieces of makeup has to be my Mac palettes. I love eyeshadow and just think Mac does such a good range of colours that are really good quality. I've been slowly building up my collection because they aren't the cheapest but I love the 4-pan palettes as I find them much easier to transport than a 15-pan palette.
This is probably my most used Mac eyeshadow purely because its so subtle and easy to wear on a daily basis. A pale beige colour with a very slight satin finish. It doesn't look like much when swatched but would definitely recommend this if you aren't a big fan of shimmer and just want something natural to wear.
Sable has to be up there as one of the prettiest Mac shades. A gorgeous browny blush colour with a gold shimmer. I love wearing this during the day as its just so beautiful!
I don't wear Antiqued as often as I would like but it is a really lovely shade. A red brown, rust colour with gold shimmer. It looks gorgeous blended out over the eyelid with a bit of Brun through the crease!
Brun is my only matte shade but I absolutely love it. Just a really nice dark brown colour that looks great through the crease. Would be good for eyebrows too if you have dark hair!
Woodwinked used to be my favourite shade but I think I just find it slightly too shimmery now. However it is a really gorgeous, unique shade. A gold shimmery shade that when blended in turns into a burnt gold colour. Beautiful as a one-shade smokey eye.
I absolutely love Mulch, just a beautiful brown shade with red shimmer. Looks so nice just blended out over the eyelid and underneath the eye for an Olsen-esque look! This is probably my go-to smokey eyeshadow.
Again Satin Taupe is a shade I used to love but find it slightly too shimmey now. However it is a gorgeous shimmey taupe colour.
I love the colour of Twinks but unfortunately the pay off just isn't that great. Its a burgundy brown colour but you really have to build it up to get any sort of colour pay out which is a shame because otherwise it would be a firm favourite.
I adore Patina, it's a really pretty pale taupe with a slight gold shimmer. I wear this during the day and it just looks really lovely.
Soba is another favourite shade of mine. A tanned skin-toned shade that is gorgeous blended out over the whole eyelid. This is definitely a one-shade smokey eye, yet its not too much that it can't be worn during the day.
My all time favourites have to be Era, Sable, Mulch, Patina and Soba and would definitely recommend you to go and give them a swatch! Any recommendations for what I should get to fill my third palette?
