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!

MAC Eyeshadow Palettes: My Purples — Limited Edition

I never realized I favored purples more than any other color.  I would have thought green/teal.

MAC Eyeshadow Palettes: My Blues & Teals — Limited Edition

This is kind of a mish-mash of greens, teals, and blues… but I’d say mostly blues.

  • There may be duplicates of some limited edition shades
  • Square-shaped shades are from holiday palettes
