MAC Keepsakes/Plum Eye Bag

MAC Keepsakes/Plum Eye Bag ($39.50 for 0.62 oz.) is a cool-toned set of shades in iridescent lavender and deep plum with a cool purple eyeliner. Both of the eyeshadows are repromotes, while the eyeliner is permanent. The eyeliner was disappointing, as it was sheer and drier. It includes an Extra Dimension eyeshadow duo (0.14 oz.), In Extreme Dimension Lash Mascara (0.44 fl. oz.), and a Powerpoint Eye Pencil (0.04 oz.). Everything in the set is full-sized, and it all fits into a small, glittery, zippered bag. In May, MAC released smaller-sized Extra Dimensions eyeshadows at $19.50/0.04 oz., whereas the duo contains 0.14 oz. in total, so there is a value of $68.25 there, plus $22 for the mascara and $16 for the eyeliner, for a total value of $106.25–so it is an excellent deal if they’re products you would use. Even if you just liked the eyeshadow duo, it is almost the same as what you would have paid on two singles (and you’ll get more–I have no idea how they managed to get more product into the compact, given they’re visually the same size as the singles).

MAC Keepsakes/Smoky Eye Bag

MAC Keepsakes/Smoky Eye Bag ($39.50 for 0.62 oz.) is a cool-toned set of shades in silver and gray paired with a black eyeliner. The two work together well, though the gray-black is the more unique shade of the two. It includes an Extra Dimension eyeshadow duo (0.14 oz.), In Extreme Dimension Lash Mascara (0.44 fl. oz.), and a Powerpoint Eye Pencil (0.04 oz.). Everything in the set is full-sized, and it all fits into a small, glittery, zippered bag.

MAC Keepsakes/Brown Eye Bag

MAC Keepsakes/Brown Eye Bag ($39.50 for 0.62 oz.) is a nice set for anyone who’s a fan of the Extra Dimension eyeshadow formula. The duo performed well, and the included eyeliner is nice (not revolutionary, not bad)–I would have loved to see a smokier, more taupe-hued eyeliner to pair with this, though. The set includes an Extra Dimension eyeshadow duo (0.14 oz.), In Extreme Dimension Lash Mascara (0.44 fl. oz.), and a Powerpoint Eye Pencil (0.04 oz.). Everything in the set is full-sized, and it all fits into a small, glittery, zippered bag. In May, MAC released smaller-sized Extra Dimensions eyeshadows at $19.50/0.04 oz., whereas the duo contains 0.14 oz. in total, so there is a value of $68.25 there, plus $22 for the mascara and $16 for the eyeliner, for a total value of $106.25–so it is an excellent deal if they’re products you would use. Even if you just liked the eyeshadow duo, it is almost the same as what you would have paid on two singles (and you’ll get more–I have no idea how they managed to get more product into the compact, given they’re visually the same size as the singles!). As a FYI, I didn’t review (or include a rating for) the mascara.

MAC Keepsakes/Beige Eyes Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Keepsakes/Beige Eyes Eyeshadow Palette ($39.50 for 0.112 oz.) is one of three, 8-pan eyeshadow palettes for the holidays. It has a neutral theme running through it, and the set of shades runs warm-toned. This palette was the best of the three eyeshadows palettes, though I don’t think it’s great. It’s all right–the shades themselves are more dupable than not, and without superb quality to back them up, it ends up falling in the middle.

MAC Keepsakes/Smoky Eyes Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Keepsakes/Smoky Eyes Eyeshadow Palette ($39.50 for 0.112 oz.) is a mix of beige, brown, and black. It’s more of a neutral palette than a monochromatic mix of silver, gray, and black. This one is also heavy on the permanent shades–five of the eight are part of the permanent range. After the last few years of disappointing holiday palettes from MAC, it’s not a surprise to see this one perform so dismally. This one is a real skip, I would say, and even the permanent shades in it are nowhere near the performance of their full-sized, standalone versions.
