MAC Eyeshadow Palettes: Permanent Eyeshadows (April 2010)

MAC Eyeshadows

MAC Eyeshadow Palettes: Permanent Eyeshadows (April 2010)

These are all the permanent MAC eyeshadows I have to-date.  Over the past year, I’ve been working on increasing my permanent eyeshadow collection (although I’ve had many from over the years!), because I want to phase out my older limited edition shades from the looks I post on the blog.  There are a few limited edition and discontinued shades in these palettes, but overall, they’re focused on the permanent range.

How I Organize…

  • By color in rainbow order (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, Brown, Gray, Black)
  • By undertone — e.g. blue-based purples are separate from red-based purples; cool neutrals from warmer neutrals

I have a tendency to buy PRO shades when I finally get around to visiting one, and so I’ve ended up with a few doubles!  Boy, nothing makes you feel silly like buying the same shade twice!

Philosophy Amazing Grace Shimmering Powder

Philosophy Amazing Grace Powder

It’s a fine-milled, very smooth powder that can easily be used to highlight specific areas or dusted lightly for an all-over glow.  It does not impart much color, if any–it’s almost the faintest pink-tinged white.  There’s a definite sheen rather than obvious shimmer or glitter that does the highlighting as well, which is always nice in a highlighter.  Amazing Grace isn’t a new, innovative highlighter, but it’s a solid one if you’re looking for something soft, subtle, and with no real color.   I’d say the slight pinkness of the product does give a healthy glow to the face without actually making it a light blusher, so it works for a highlighter.

Recommendation:   Pretty-in-pink, Philosophy’s newest highlighter does a nice job of softly highlighting the face without going overboard with glitter or shimmer.  It’s nearly colorless, which may make it a nice option for those not looking to add color to cheeks!
