MAC Strength: Inner Strength Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Inner Strength Eyeshadow Quad ($40.00 for 0.21 oz.) consists of three new shades and one repromote: Lithe Spirit (palest white pink), Inner Strength (light cool mauve taupe), Fabulous Fit (mid-tone cool grey), and Heatherbelles (deep charcoal).  This is a rather cool-toned quad, more so than All Woman, with the only warmth coming from Inner Strength, which isn’t all that warm, so if you like cooler tones, you’ll be in luck with this color composition!

Guerlain Attrape-Coeur (501) Eyeshadow Palette

Guerlain Attrape-Coeur (501) Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.25 oz.) is described as “mauve, violet, white, and purple.” It’s a mix of purples, really, with varying finishes from iridescent to frosted to satin (no mattes here, though). I wore the lightest shade as an inner corner highlight, then used the mauve shade on the inner half of the lid with the lavender shade on the outer half of the lid, and used the darkest purple shade to define the crease.
