Are Mac eyeshadows still a thing?
If you've been around the online beauty community for years you'll know Mac eyeshows were everything at the beginning of last decade. It was everybody's go-to brand. I've been using Mac eyeshadows since 2011 and they have always been a staple in my makeup collection. They are kind of a cult product in Beauty. 

Having a custom Mac palette has always been a dream of mine. I always loved the idea of creating my perfect palette selecting all the shades I like. Last year I was quite overwhelmed by all the eyeshadow palettes on the market and brands constantly releasing more palettes. So I decided to create my perfect palette, the one to choose when I don't know what to choose in my collection. It was a kind of beauty resolution of the decade.

So I finally finished my Mac palette.
It took me years and years but I finally finished it. I feel so proud! It just gives me happiness looking at it.
My perfect palette is made of neutral eyeshadows as you can tell. I specially love warm browns and pinks. They're all universal and wearable colours that would work with many different skin tones. Some must haves for neutral lovers and great choices for Mac newbies that want to get their first eyeshadows.

This is the collection:

First row, l-r

NYLON is a light gold with a metallic frost finish. I love this for highlight the inner corner, brow bone or as a touch of light in the center of the lid. The versatility is amazing. 
NAKED LUNCH is a warm champagne pink with a frost finish. This just adds the right amount of shimmer to the lids. A must in any collection and the only one I hit pan on.
ALL THAT GLITTERS is a light rose gold shade. It's pigmented and easy to blend and it has the prettiest metallic finish. It's similar to Naked Lunch but All that glitters is warmer and more pink. 
HONEY LUST is a very shimmery golden peachy colour. It's extremely beautiful but sadly not the easiest shadow to work with, it doesn't have the strongest payoff. 
MYTHOLOGY is light copper pink shade. It's similar to Honey Lust in texture, very shimmery with a bit of fallout.

Second row, l-r 

PATINA was my first MAC eyeshadow ever. Patina is a taupe brown with golden shimmer. It's a very popular colour in Mac, everyone seems to love it. 
WOODWINKED is a medium gold-bronze colour. It has an orange undertone once applied. It has some shimmer on it but is finely milled. The finish is Veluxe Pearl with a texture that is so soft and buttery. The pigmentation and colour payoff are fantastic. 
AMBER LIGHTS is a orangey amber gold shade. It's pigmented, shimmery with a metallic finish. 
BRONZE is a true bronze colour. It's a great colour to wear all over the lid. It can be worn alone or for a more smokey eye look. It's also flattering on all eye colours.
ANTIQUED is a warm coppery brown shade perfect for day and night. It's such a beautiful shade that will bring out the green in your eyes. 

Third row, l-r

SATIN TAUPE is a brownish taupe colour with silver shimmer in it. It's not too warm or too cool so it suits many skin tones.This is a classic and a best-seller from the brand.

SABLE is a plummy brown, very special and super beautiful alone all over the lid. It's pigmented and easy to blend and work with. It has a shinny finish but not glittery.
TEXTURE is a peachy medium brown with tiny flecks of micro shimmer. I love the unique colour of this, so warm and versatile. It looks great alone all over the lid and works great as transition or as crease shade. 
UNINTERRUPTED is a matte caramel brown/ochre shade. I love the colour of this, it looks almost boring in the pan but its a unique brown. It's a great shade to pair with any other eye shadow. The pigmentation is excellent and the formula is so buttery soft.
BROWN SCRIPT is a reddish brown, terracotta shade. It's completely matte and very pigmented. I love this in the crease or built up a bit more in the outer corner of my eye.

If I had to choose only five eyeshadows from this palette, I would choose: All that Glitters, Woodwinked, Antiqued, Texture and Uninterrupted. It's difficult to select only five favourites but I think these five shades are unique and great for natural and special looks. Woodwinked I love and use it so much that I have it in a single pot as well!

to one of my favourite shadows and the only one is not in the palette, SOBA. Soba is a very unique colour. It doesn't look like anything special in the pan but it's actually so pretty on the lids. It's a perfect natural everyday shade, a kind of my lids but better colour. It's a warm golden brown with tiny gold shimmer particles. It's got something special in it that makes brown eyes pop!
