MAC Eyeshadow love ~ My MAC Neutral eyeshadow palette

MAC Neutral Eyeshadow Palette

MAC eyeshadows are my most favorite makeup play things. What can be more fun than a myriad of pretty colors in different textures? Whenever I pass by a MAC store I feel like stopping by at least once to gaze at the beautiful eyeshadow display. If I ever win a lottery or something I will buy all MAC eyeshadows. They are just too pretty!!!

While I love brighter colors like Sushi Flower , Deep Truth et all , I love MAC neutral shades more. This is my MAC neutral eyeshadow palette. This is the pallete I reach out for every morning. Some colors like Girlie,  Satin Taupe and Shale are not exactly office appropriate colors. I will be swapping  them with some brown shades  when I get them. I am eyeing grain, soft brown, expresso and mystery. The obsession never stops!

I have another palette which has all my brighter eyeshadows.  I will do a post on that when its completely full.  I have an entire post on some of these shadows. I will add the links in this post.

Top Row (L-R) Girlie, All That glitters, Brule, Arena, Woodwinked

Middle Row (L-R) Shale, Tete-a-Tint, Texture, Mulch, Embark

Bottom Row( L-R) Sketch, Stain Taupe  Swish Chocolate, Smut, Carbon

Price? Each individual shadow costs Rs 680 and the empty pallete is priced at approximately Rs 850

Top : Girlie , All That Glitters , Brule
Middle : Shale , Tete-a-Tint , Texture
Bottom: Sketch , Stain Taupe , Swish Chocolate
Top : Arena , Woodwinked
Middle : Mulch, Embark
Bottom: Smut , Carbon

I have not added the swatches of these eyeshadows in this post. Do let me know if you want to see side by side swatches. I intend to do an individual post on each of them eventually. For reference I am between NC 42-45 in MAC. Or in plain English I am quite dusky and these colors suit me really well :)

Which are your favorite MAC eyeshadow colors? 


  1. Nice selection! I've always been tempted to get Girlie (more coz of the name :)), but not sure how pigmented it is.


  2. Oh wowwwww...that is SOME palette...i have some of favs r mulch, ATG, Satin taupe, ..i also really like should totally get that !

  3. @Cynthia : Thanks:) Yea MAC names always tempt me to buy more and more..I love the name Woodwinked :D I will eventually do a post on Girlie..its not very pigmented..It looks like a frosted light pink..I think it would look good on fairer skin was an impulse buy for me and i havent used it much yet
