In the Flesh

MAC In the Flesh Eyeshadow x 15 Palette ($65.00 for 0.68 oz.) includes fifteen eyeshadows in a variety of finishes with a neutral-themed color combination. The first row seemed warmer, while the middle row was more pink-based, and the bottom row was smoky. A lot of the pre-made 15-pan palettes have been better (on average) compared to MAC’s quads, but this one was more of a miss.

Solar Glow Times Nine

MAC Solar Glow Times Nine Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.18 oz.) includes nine, dime-sized eyeshadows. I’d characterize this palette by its finish–glittery–and as a result, it is difficult to use on its own (I’d recommend a glitter adhesive as a base), sheerer (which is by design when it comes to the Lustre finish but not so much for the other finishes), and short-wearing.

Semi-Sweet Times Nine

MAC Semi-Sweet Times Nine Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.18 oz.) includes nine, dime-sized eyeshadows. It’s a darker, more muted take on neutrals. This particular palette has more repeats than others–Bamboo and Carbon are permanent, Drawing a Blanc, Outre, Persuade, and Dance in the Dark are all repromotes–so you might want to check your stash for repeats! In general, I wish some of the shades were more blendable or more pigmented, but if you normally use primer, it significantly improved blendability and opacity, as MAC’s matte formula is very buildable.

Peanut Butter and Honey

Too Faced Peanut Butter and Honey Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00 for 0.38 oz.) contains nine eyeshadows, most of them neutral in type with a pop of darker yellow. It’s the pop of yellow that is “different” in a sea of warmer neutrals that we have seen (even by Too Faced!). The look I put together with this palette reminded me a lot of the one I did for Viseart Warm Mattes, but the latter was much easier to create. The Viseart palette is more expansive and well-rounded so the yellow shade worked more. Obviously, though, it’s over double the cost of Too Faced’s palette. They’re listed below, but if you already have a collection of warmer neutrals, you might consider picking up a single like ColourPop Paper Tiger or Make Up For Ever M408 Mustard to recreate the feel of this palette yourself.

It’s supposed to be scented with the smell of peanut butter and honey (duh), but it just smelled like sweet vanilla to me. I don’t know if my sense of smell was off or no, as the Sweet Peach palette definitely had a noticeably different scent than just vanilla.

Tropic Cool Times Nine

MAC Tropic Cool Times Nine Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.18 oz.) includes nine, dime-sized eyeshadows in an assortment of yellow, green, and blue. It’s a bolder, brighter set of shades, but it also had a very smoldering edge with the deeper blue and bluish-gray inclusions. As you might expect, the yellowy shades need a primer to look as they do in the pan, but I also had some trouble with two of the darker blues.

California Dreaming

LORAC California Dreaming Eyeshadow Palette ($30.00 for 0.34 oz.) includes twelve eyeshadows in both matte and shimmer finishes. The palette runs warmer, but it seemed more like a neutral palette with pops of rose and mauve accents. The formula felt looser and drier overall; sort of like LORAC’s “filler” formula, when they put together more affordable palettes but aren’t part of their Pro collection (which always has a silkier, more refined feel). I find that this formula can be better or worse depending on the shades and finishes. The downsides of the formula tend to be that they are prone to fading more quickly and sheering out, so a good primer is an absolute must-have to make this palette wear and perform well.
