It looks a pretty palette for those who need some more chocolatey colours, but I am over neutrals and these colours I have enough of.

Very, very average from MAC. I am not surprised. There last few palettes have been woeful.

Yes, with some moisturizers. The sample felt differently on my skin and the full size was just average.

Yay! Some cool toned colours. BUT – I wish the Tall, Dark and Handsome colour was more grey than black, as the eyeliner is black. Sigh.

This palette looks a lot better. MAC should have just created this and left it there. Love the stolen moment colour.

Are the MAC holiday palettes so ordinary because they have created too many of them? I think it would be better to create one really fantastic one rather than three ordinary ones – that frankly look the same.

Waiting for my moisturizer then primer to dry/set. After that, yes, my eyes.

This looks like a beautiful colour that would suit a range of skin types – including mine. It looks really lovely on you Christine. I think I might be tempted to try it.

I also meant to say that I do not have discolouration under my eyes and only a few fine lines. A lot of eye creams made my eyes water, but the Innoxa one works well. Use eye drops too.

I think when you are in your teens and twenties, you can get away from using a specific eye cream (as long as you cleanse, moisturize, wear a cream with sunscreen etc). But by the time you really hit your forties […]

I don’t really like this palette as too many of the colours are very similar to each other and to other palettes. It is too warm for me. Now a nice palette of greys, blues and greens would have me very interested.

Genevieve commented on the post, How do you deal with eyeshadow fallout? 6 days, 10 hours ago

I really don’t have a lot of fall out from my eyeshadows as I buy the ones that are recommended here.

I have always used a gentle scrub, but serums have definitely improved my skin – Sukin Rosehip oil.
Gentle cleansers and hydrating moisturisers are equally important too.

I am not a fan of eyeshadows/blushes in the same palette because they can get very messy. It would be quite difficult to get your blush brush into those smaller pans. Overall this palette does not work for me as […]

By applying and experimenting with makeup, it made me realise that I had pink undertones to my skin (which is why my foundations were never right) and how to use eyeshadows to emphasize my eyes, which are an […]

Such a shame that this palette is SO disappointing – the shades are very similar to each other and every other palette on the market. Some of the shades (eg gray) looked positively woeful. The only shade I was […]

What a shame the colours aren’t as good as they looked! I love your eye look with them Christine. They look very pretty on you.

There is something about the packaging that is putting me off – I really don’t like white packaging. It feels cheapish to me (I am sure in real life it would probably look OK). Secondly, the eyeshadow colours seem […]
