MAC Fabulous Felines: Palace Pedigreed Review, Photos, Swatches (Eyes)

Here’s the first of two posts on the Palace Pedigreed part of the Fabulous Felines Collection.

You can find official promotional photos and information on MAC Fabulous Felines here.  I will not have full collection swatches and photos until I’m able to purchase the missing pieces.  I purchased all of these through Bloomingdale’s, which is selling early online (no idea why).

Palace Pedigreed Eyeshadow Quad ($36.00 U.S. / $43.00 CDN)

  • Courtly is a semi-sheer dirty mauve with a satin finish. It seemed rather muted to me, and it took a little extra work to get it to swatch well. The closest permanent shadow I could think of was Seedy Pearl, which has a lot more shimmer, significant pink tones, and an iridescent glow about it that make them quite different in actuality.
  • Palace Pedigreed a darkened plum with a soft sheen and satin finish. It reminded me of a darker version of Plum Dressing, less purple Nocturnelle.
  • Quite Spoiled is a pinky purple with a soft, satin finish. It has a subtle sheen of shimmer. It reminded me of a purple version of Modest Tone (N Collection).
  • Russian Blue is a darkened teal with a matte finish. The pigmentation seems lacking, but when used with a brush, it’s a lot better, though it’s still not quite as pigmented as I’d like. You’ll want to use the pat-and-pack method rather than sweeping this shade on.

Superslick Liquid Eye Liner ($17.50 U.S. / $21.00 CDN)

  • Nocturnal is a bright metallic silver with a high frost finish.
  • Signature Blue is a medium-dark navy blue with lighter blue micro-shimmer.
  • Smoky Heir is a burgundy plum with violet, plum, and purple micro-shimmer.

Pigment ($19.50 U.S. / $23.50 CDN)

  • Bloodline is a darkened taupe-brown with a tiny bit of plum. When wet, it can be very intense. If used with a brush like an eyeshadow, it works well in the crease and darkens substantially.
  • Mauvement is a chunky brownish mauve with flecks of gold. It’s an interesting shade, but it does have some chunkiness to the texture that can be bothersome.  I’m really annoyed that I can’t find my original jar of Mauvement, because this seems browner than the original; slightly smoother, but still on the chunkier side.

  1. Emma UK

    This is going to cost me a fortune…….

  2. Smokey Noir makes me want to SQUEAL with excitement!

  3. Swatches! Those eyeliners look fantastic!

  4. Mia

    Hi Christine! Could you possibly do a review on the Superslick Liquid Eyeliners?

    • Mia,

      I will do any and all new product reviews and commentary in my overall review – please just be patient – I have about 4 hours of work still to do (finishing up Palace Pedigreed, next to do Leopard Luxe, and then an overall review). Thank you!

      • Lina

        i want to buy all of the eyeliners because they look so pretty ):
        can you do a giveaway on some please?

  5. Oh my! Hmm. How does the Palace Pedigreed Eyeshadow Quad compare to the Spring Colour Forecast one, in Colour 3, would you say? Because I love these colours, but I already have the Spring Colour Forecast one… Would you say they are different enough to justify buying both (without having the excuse of owning a major beautyblog? ^^)?

    Smokey Noir is definitely on the wishlist! And a gorgeous pigment! Mauvement was on the list, but by seeing the swatch of Bloodline, I think Mauvement will be replaced :P

  6. Gisele

    Thanks for the swatches, Christine. I don’t expect you to do a look which resembles a Russian blue or Burmese cat!

  7. FlyingBuffalo

    Which cat is this part supposed to represent?
    Thanks for the photos and swatches!

  8. Dallas

    smoky heir looks like the liner version of russian navy by opi!

  9. i LOVE the design of the new quads, so sleek and sexy looking.

  10. Lauren

    I didn’t think I was going to like anything in the collection… the superslick liners are proving me wrong! I’m excited to hear your review on them

    PS — THANK YOU for all you do! You literally amaze me with how much time/energy/detail you give to us readers :)

  11. Kristy

    I am going to be broke! I really want to try these liners!!

  12. Leslie

    I am in LOVE with the eyeliners, holy cow! Those are FUN! Like the Urban Decay liquid liners but way more pigment!

  13. The liquid liner in Nocturnal and Signature Blue look gorgeous, but do you think fair-skinned girls with light coloring could rock em?

  14. Katt

    The applicator on the new liner kind of looks like the one on Prestige’s liquid eyeliners(which I love!) Are they close to the same thing?
    The colors are fab-I think I may have to get one of each…

  15. Lilac

    Thanks a lot for the swatches and all your work!

  16. stef

    do you know if the super slick liners are gonna be perm?

  17. Sally

    Can you please do a look using the Palace Pedigreed palette? Pretty please if you have time :)

  18. Lina

  22. Ginnia

    Eyeliners are hawt!

  23. Yvonne

    I love these eyeliners.

    Christine, have you tried Inglot liquid liners? The brush on these looks similar just a larger tube. I’m curious to see if the application is the same…

  24. Oh sweet zombie Jesus, this is my collection! I need almost everything from this section! I missed out on the Spring collection from being too poor, but I have saved for this puppy.

    Christine, when, exactly, is this going to be sold on the Mac site? Do you know?

  25. Alejandra

    Wow I was just about to make an order off of MAC online but seeing that this collection is coming out so soon I think i’ll hold off on it. Im loving all the different parts of this collection!

  26. AnaG.

    just amazing!! You girls are sooo lucky..in Portugal we are still waiting (and waiting,and waiting) for the In the Groove collection – we aren’t going to have the veno v collection and I still don’t know if this one is coming – sure hope so!!thanks for all you trouble christine, it really makes my life easier to order things with friends that are travelling!!!

  27. Cj

    im in love with the nocteral liner, but im nw 20… can i rock it?

  28. Evanna

    J’adore the quad. The liners are cool too, except Smoky Heir.

  29. Wow ! I love the eyeliners ! Especially the blue one !

  30. Morgan

    I love al of the quads getting all of them. My Credit Card will be maxed lol SO EXCITED

  31. i’ve been hearing that bloodlines is very similar to moth brown e/s. what do you think? :)

  32. Rebecca

    I love this collection! I’m wondering if the Smokey Eyes liner is similar to any of the purple Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On eye pencils though? I find the Urban Decay pencils so much easier to work with than liquid liners!

  33. Nicolle

    I got the MAC Superslick Liquid Eye Liner in smoky heir and I am returning it. It is the flakiest liquid liner I have ever used!

  34. mica

    does anyone know a good dupe for Russian blue?

  35. Amanda Dubs

    I am so sad that I missed out on this collection. Its so gorgeous. I got into Makeup and MAC right after. There was one leopard luxe left and I got that but oh my gosh I want all of these!
