MAC Eyeshadow Palettes: Permanent Eyeshadows (April 2010)
These are all the permanent MAC eyeshadows I have to-date. Over the past year, I’ve been working on increasing my permanent eyeshadow collection (although I’ve had many from over the years!), because I want to phase out my older limited edition shades from the looks I post on the blog. There are a few limited edition and discontinued shades in these palettes, but overall, they’re focused on the permanent range.
How I Organize…
By color in rainbow order (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, Brown, Gray, Black)
By undertone — e.g. blue-based purples are separate from red-based purples; cool neutrals from warmer neutrals
I have a tendency to buy PRO shades when I finally get around to visiting one, and so I’ve ended up with a few doubles! Boy, nothing makes you feel silly like buying the same shade twice!
Milani Brown Liquif’Eye Metallic Eye Liner Pencil ($5.49) is a matte, medium-dark brown. I consider it a rather neutral brown, and it’s a great shade to use to define eyes for an everyday look. It’s less dramatic and obvious than black eyeliner. I love the Liquif’Eyes for their creamy feel and texture, easy-to-glide-on nature, and their long-wearing power. They’re really an all-around fantastic eyeliner, period.

Here’s a round-up post of all of the palettes in one place 🙂 Please keep in mind that I’ve been buying MAC since 2004 — it’s not like my collection grew overnight! The journey is there, and there’s a lot of fun to be had in taking that journey!
