My MAC Eyeshadow Palette

Hey everyone. Today's post is on my completed 15 pan Pro Palette. I have been wanting to do this post for so long but I have only just filled up the last two slots a week or so ago. MAC eyeshadows have to be my favourite eyeshadows ever, they have a huge range of colours and finishes and they apply like an absolute dream. There isn't much not to like at all to be honest and that feeling you get when you fill a complete palette is so satisfying (those of you who own a complete palette will know exactly what I am talking about).

So I first started purchasing MAC eyeshadows about 18 months or so ago and literally fell in love straight away. I only had a quad back then, which is a palette that fits up to four eyeshadows in and treasured it like you wouldn't believe. I knew right then, that I had to purchase the larger palette and build a collection of all my favourite shades. It did take me a little while to actually get my hands on the new style of Pro Palette, the old ones didn't used to have the clear plastic top to it and didn't look nearly as professional. You can imagine how happy I was when I tracked one down at the pro store in Fouberts Place near Carnaby Street!

So as you can see, I am a neutrals girl. I don't feel brave enough to wear all the crazy blues and greens that MAC do even though they look gorgeous. However I do have Carbon in there because everyone needs a black, even if its just used on the lower lash line or just to deepen the colour in the crease a little. Its also ideal for that perfect smokey eye. I also have some gorgeous highlight colours too like Mylar, Brule and Nylon which are always useful.

So some of my favourites and most worn shades are:

Mylar - Perfect paired with Brule to apply under my brows.
Nylon - Beautiful for the inner corners of the eyes or highlighting the brown bone.
Naked Lunch - Stunning lid colour for when you want something subtle.
Wedge - Simple lid colour or a subtle crease colour.
All That Glitters - Gorgeous shimmery lid colour.
Satin Taupe - Lovely darker shimmery lid colour.
Brown Down - Perfect for the crease.
Brun - I use this on my eyebrows every single day.

If you haven't ever tried MAC shadows before then I highly recommend them. They are just amazing and give a flawless finish and the pigmentation is fantastic. I always go back to them and now I can't actually imagine me ever needing another palette again apart from another MAC palette of course. There are already more colours I wish to add to my collection so I can see me filling another one up in the next year or so. :)

Do you own a MAC palette? What are you favourite shades? Any you think I should try?
