My MAC Eye Shadow Quad

With so many brands launching new products every month or so we tend to forget our trusty old brand – MAC. While I have a lot of products from MAC, I hardly own any of their eye shadows. I have 2 MAC eye shadows in those single pots that I barely use – bought randomly. I prefer eye shadow palettes as compared to single eye shadows. I just think they are easier to travel with. So recently I decided to take the plunge and make build my MAC eye shadow quad, which would consist of the 4 eye shadows that go with almost everything and perfect to create a number of different looks.

L-R: Folie, Cranberry L-R: Expensive Pink, Sable

The first eye shadow I chose was Sable, which is a beautiful bronzey taupe. It looks perfect all over the lid or even paired with other eye shadows. Next I wanted one for the crease so I went for Folie. It is a matte brown. It looks quite dark in the pan but it isn’t too dark once blended. I think I can also make it work for a smokey eye look since I don’t like overly dark black smokey eye look. I then went for Cranberry. It is a deep burgundy pink. It isn’t as scary as it looks in the pan. It is such a beautiful color which can be used to apply all over the lid or maybe also to smudge below the water line. Next I ended up with Expensive Pink. I wanted to go for All That Glitters but instead got mixed up with the names and was in a hurry so ended up with this one. But it is an amazing color and it will go perfectly with Indian outfits too. It is a peachy pink with gold shimmer. It would look amazing pressed onto the center of the eyelids.

What I love about MAC eye shadows is that their wear time is pretty good. Also I like that you can build your own palette and choose the shadows you want unlike in already-built palettes. I have a few other palettes like the Naked 3, Naked Basics, Makeup Revolution etc. but there are quite a few shadows that I have never used from those palettes. Now I am planning to build my 15 eye shadow palette from MAC. Do let me know if you have any recommendations.

    Sable and Expensive Pink look so pretty! I have Cranberry in my quad too, as well as All That Glitters and Satin Taupe. I’ve been meaning to pick up more MAC shadows for ages, I’ve got my eye on Patina and Woodwinked.

    You have chosen perfect colors. What I did when I went out to make a quad was chose all odd shimmery colors to use in my wedding. The irony is it had no crease color and the those colors I ended up not using ever. What I will suggest do not go for all MAC. Inglot has same eyeshadows of same quality. You can also purchase same number at lesser price from Makeup geek. check out the reviews they are bargain and great-great quality. I have taken a resolution never to go for MAC eyeshadows ever due to better options available.

    The colors are very pretty & compliment each other. I haven’t tried MAC shadows yet but I’ve always liked Swiss Chocolate..:)
