The Mac Quad


Clockwise: Satin Taupe, All that glitters, Sumptuous olive & Cranberry. 

If any of you follow me on Instagram you may know that a little while ago I picked up a mac pro quad palette with the intention of filling it. Yes, days turned into weeks and weeks turned into months but the good news is that I finally got around (and found the funds) to filling it. I had wanted to keep it quite neutral but as I have my beloved naked palette I also wanted to pick shades I didn't already have anything similar to. The colour range at Mac is HUGE as you will probably know, and after scouting all of my favourite beauty blogs to see which colours they have and swatching my heart out I finally decided. 

For my most neutral shades I picked up Satin Taupe; a bronzey brown taupe and a firm favourite of Tanya Burr's. I literally could NOT choose between two shades for my lighter neutral shade, but ended up picking All That Glitters over Naked Lunch. It is such a pretty pinky golden shimmery shade which can be used on its own or blended in with other darker shadows. My third pick was Sumptuous Olive; a beautiful greeny gold which really compliments my dark brown eyes. Lastly, I picked a shade I had been hearing LOTS about: Cranberry. It honestly is the most gorgeous autumnal eyeshadow colour and can either be packed on if you're brave or blended out with satin taupe if you want something more subtle. So there's my current palette picks. Next on my list? I'm seriously lusting after Club, Smut, Vanilla and Omega for my brows. 

Which shades do you have in your palette?
