New Year New Eyeshadow | A Little MAC Haul

5 New MAC Eyeshadows | Haul & Swatches |

Hey Beauties! 

 It’s always dangerous to leave me alone around any sort of cosmetics store. Whether it’s Sephora, MAC, a department store or even the drugstore, if I have the chance to venture into makeup heaven I will take it. 

Just before Christmas I ended up at the local mall with the boyfriend early in the morning and while he got his teeth cleaned I found myself playing around in the MAC store. Twenty minutes later I walked out with my very first MAC eyeshadows.

I know, it’s shocking that I haven’t had a MAC eyeshadow before but I have always leaned towards their lip and cheek products. I have looked at swatches online many, many times and I finally seemed to crack. 

I decided to pick up 5 shadows, 4 matte and 1 shimmer. I wanted to get a few crease colours as well some nice deep greens. I ended up buying Saddle (a golden warm brown), Quarry (a soft plum brown), Haux (a soft muted rosy brown), Bottle Green (a deep emerald green) and Sumptuous Olive (a khaki green with pearl shimmer).

I have only played with them a couple of times but so far I am very impressed with all of them and I plan to pick up a few more! 

Single MAC Eyeshadows come in either pan form or packaged up. The pans retail for $12 CAD and the pots retail for $19 CAD. MAC sells palettes for $10 and inserts for $2 to house the pans or you can use a Z palette. 

What are your favourite MAC eyeshadows?

    I only have two MAC eyeshadows – Omega (great contour shade!!) and Coppering – wish is freaking gorgeous. I've been debating on picking up one of the MAC x 9 palettes, but I've heard such mixed reviews on them.

    I love MAC eyeshadows! Sumptuous Olive is one of my faves. I like to pair it with All That Glitters and Amber Lights. I also really like Wedge.

    I've never tried their eye shadows but I love these shades you picked out. I might try one of them next time I go to Mac

    I've actually never owned a MAC eye shadow before, so you're not the only one who's behind. I still love playing around and testing all of the makeup though. Love the shades you tried!

    I only have one Mac Eyeshadow (Jest) and I used to wear it everyday. Since I hit pan on it, I've tucked it away, but I really want to get more. I wanted the Nordstrom palette that had some of their best, but I missed it! I'm hoping they'll come out with something like it soon.

    Back in university I used to buy A LOT of MAC but since then I've discovered so many other brands that I really haven't bought in a while! I know it's still a fave among makeup artists though! Enjoy your new shadows!

    What gorgeous shades. Oh my!!!! I have always wanted to create my own palette with Mac, but it is a bit too expensive. Great buy!!!

    Love the pictures! I'm such a sucker for eyeshadow as well. I'm only 2 away from completing my mac palette, and I'm dying to finally finish it. Haux is one of my favourite mac colours. Katherine || The Green Bows
