MAC’s Sorceress Eyeshadow Palette is filled with fairly cool-toned eyeshadows. I find that with as many purples and cool shades included in this palette, the best way to complement any eye look is going with cool pink, pale pink, or plummy shades on cheeks and cool-toned pinks or iridescent opals and purples for the lips.
Some notes: I didn’t find that the lip shades launched with MAC’s holiday collection worked particularly well with this palette, so I’d recommend looking in your stash for better shades! I also found that as pretty and unique as Hold My Gaze Eyeshadow is… it doesn’t work easily with this palette, because it’s has a definite green tone to it. I’d also recommend thinking about using it with some greens and golds for a better look.

Have you picked up goodies from MAC’s Magic, Mirth, and Mischief Colour Collection and struggled with what to wear the new shades with? Here are five ideas using mostly the new products with a few permanent shades. All items mentioned are by MAC, for the sake of making it easy.
MAC Wild ‘Bout You Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) was a limited edition shade of amazingness launched with the Rockocco Collection back in fall of 2006. MAC described it as a “rich raspberry with pink pearlized pigments” with a matte frost finish (who knew you could have a matte frost!). This shade is almost not quite a red, but I couldn’t resist including it, because 1) it does have a red tinge to it, and 2) I tend to reach for it when I’m feeling like wearing red.
