Just when you think there cannot possibly be another wantable nude palette, along comes MAC with such a gorgeous collection of nudes and neutrals that I’ll be scraping down the back of the sofa to fund this if that’s what it takes! I can see me using this literally every single day. Above is the prefilled warm toned palette – there are two and the other is cool toned (coming up) – and it’s got everything! That’s the thing about nude colours; if you love them (like I do) then each one has something different to bring to your make-up collection.
Shades for the warm neutral palette are HEY metallic coral (veluxe pearl), WARM BREEZE pastel coral (satin), GINGERSNAP deep rosy pink (frost), DARK BREW deep chocolate with pink pearl (velvet), DANCE IN THE DARK dark brown (matte), BRULÉ soft creamy beige (satin), VANILLA EXTRACT soft warm yellow beige (frost), HONEY LUST bronze-dipped peach (lustre), AMBER LIGHTS peachy-brown with shimmer (frost), SADDLE golden orange brown (matte), LEMON TART metallic gold (veluxe pearl), BUTTERFUDGE dirty mocha with gold pearl (satin), CREATIVE COPPER frosted gold (lustre), UNWIND dirty olive (veluxe pearl), and DIVINE DECADENCE soft bronze (velvet). You’ll notice there is a complete mix of textures as well.
Above is the second MAC EyeShadow X 15, this time neutrals in cool tones. I’m definitely warm toned but still love the look of this. The shade names are FLOUNCE chalky white pink (matte), SWEET ALLURE soft light pink (satin), SUN TWEAKED soft frosty coral (frost), BLACKBERRY muted burgundy-plum brown (matte), AFTER DUSK mid-tone rosy pink with pearl (veluxe pearl), PICK ME UP pale ivory (matte), CRUSHED CLOVE dirty gold olive (frost), COZY GREY cool grey (matte), DECEPTION chocolate gold (frost), BRUN muted blackish brown (satin), SILVER FOG white with silver pearl (lustre), FRENCH CLAY white-grey frost (frost), CUMULUS dirty grey charcoal (frost), PEARLED EARTH deep blue-grey (veluxe pearl) and BLACK TIED black with silver sparkle (velvet) and once again a mix of finishes.
Both palettes launch in March this year for £65 each at all MAC outlets and stores.
