Chromatbabe Super Pack

MAC Chromatbabe Super Pack Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.19 oz.) includes six eyeshadows with satin to frost finishes. It is a deeper, darker, smokier palette with a pop of bright orange and cyan blue. The palette is part of the Chromat collection, which launches today (June 29th) online and at select MAC locations. I suspect that the color combination will appeal strongly to some but will not work for all. It was decent overall, but the lighter blue was a real let down and brought down the palette as a whole.

Sabina Sangre

Sabina Sangre is a bright, medium orange with subtle flecks of gold micro-sparkle over a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was buildable to full coverage with two layers. The eyeshadow blended out nicely and lasted for eight and a half hours on me.

Duabandita

Duabandita is a medium-dark, plummy brown with a bluish-green duochrome shift paired with a frosted finish. The eyeshadow was soft, smooth, and a little denser than MAC’s normal formula. It had excellent pigmentation that blended out nicely on the lid. It wore well for eight hours before creasing faintly.

Structured Satin

Structured Satin is a medium-dark black with cool undertones and a matte finish. It was actually listed as a Satin, but it really performed and appeared like a matte eyeshadow. The consistency was a little drier and firmer in the pan, but it had good pigmentation and was easy to build up on the lid. It took some effort to diffuse the edges but wasn’t a real challenge to work with. It stayed on well for eight hours on me.

Mindfiles

Mindfiles is a medium gray with a silvery, frosted sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and blended out without issue. The consistency was soft, slightly dusty in the pan, but it adhered evenly to bare skin. This shade lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

Triennial Wave

Triennial Wave is a medium blue with very subtle satin shimmer. It had medium pigmentation, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage, but this shade darkened a lot on my lid and only seemed to retain its brightness over a white base. The texture was dusty, firmer in the pan, and it was not as blendable as I would have expected. It started to fade significantly after six hours of wear.

Blue Black

Blue Black is a dark, navy blue with a black base and lighter, brighter blue pearl. The color payoff was good–just shy of full coverage–and applied evenly to the lid. I felt like this shade looked more satin by the time I blended it out, as the shimmer did not seem as present or as reflective. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading.

The look you created is absolutely stunning, one of the most gorgeous you’ve ever done, Christine! If I didn’t absolutely hate blue I’d buy the palette because of that look alone.
Too bad a third of the shadows are blue, and also I don’t know if it’s going to be released in my country. But I’m completely in love with what you’ve done.

Aw, thank you Marlene! 🙂

You know, you could try it with a really deep color that you like – maybe plum or purple or green.

This eye look is gorgeous! And that packaging is calling me… but I’m stocked up with dupes for all of these shades, thankfully, so I can safely pass.

I don’t normally go for colors like these but there’s something very appealing about this palette!
Gorgeous eye look btw, Christine! Interesting to see how that orange really pulls out the red tones in Duabandita.

Decent grade but your look is A++. I love blue and orange together and the dark teal/gray is a good segue between. And they didn’t use Carbon!

Wow the look you did with this is stunning! I really like the juxtaposition of the greiges with the neon pops of color. I’m not sure how much wear I would get out of this palette though on an every day basis. Something to ponder.

Unless you have a pretty bold eye as your go-to look, it doesn’t seem like a versatile palette. I bet you have a black already in your stash, and orange/blue are easily had in singles or in other palettes.

Super fast as always! The price is listed as $32 on the site. I’m pretty sure I have dupes of most of these, but I still can’t help but want it, haha. I was not interested in the light blue, so that doesn’t deter me.

Signing on to comment again because I just read your review. Not gone lie, I commented earlier before I read your review because the look you created is that good. I’m one of the ones who wouldn’t be drawn to this combo of colors, that is, until this look right here. Could you tell us how you created it? I didn’t see it listed in the review. My apologies if I overlooked it. My NC50 self just might be inspired to purchase this to attempt to recreate this look.

Hi Kwmechelle!

Right under the photo, there’s a caption and “Look Details” which is a link that will take you to full details 🙂

Ooooh, Mach 10 and Christine on fire! That is one helluva look. Too bad the light blue is so lacking. I could approximate the look with judicious stash shopping, excepting that blue, but would def have to wear my glasses! Nice to see this whole scheme. Brings together today’s trends, w/ a duo, plus a fairly neutral dark silver and some blues. Nice to see someone coloring outside the lines. Go, MAC!

Wow, Christine this blew me away! I am loving the color and mixture you’ve done for this look! I am so tempted to buy it myself after this look of yous. And I don’t normally like buying Mac’s preset palettes.

IDK, not feeling these color combos, such an odd assortment of shades. And a shame about that bright sky blue-I have MAC Night Sky from the Guo Pei collection, and that sky blue is beautiful, so I know MAC can do better

While I LOVE Duabandita and Sabina Sangre, I am just not in love with the entire palette quite enough to buy it. If the gray had looked more like Knight Divine and if Triennial Wave had far better pigmentation, I *may* have at least considered it. Oh well, MAC can’t win them all!

The layout of this palette is SO reminiscent of the VBxEL six shadow palette. I’m seeing quite a few “homages” to the VB palette, sometimes in layout and color story, though this MAC palette is similar only in layout.

I’d be interested (i mean In general!! Not just from you. I’m not demanding you do a bunch of looks LOL) in seeing a few different looks with this palette!! It kind of stumps me!!

Such a stunningly beautiful eye look Christine – you are an inspiration to all of us.
Now to the palette – love the greys – but that pale blue is a big miss and needed to be another shade. I can see why MAC has included the orange, as it is a popular shade at the moment although it is not one I would use. The black is redundant.

When I saw this palette I was interested to see what you were going to do with it, WoW, what a stunner! I don’t usually do colors like this but I am going to use some dupes just to see how it looks on my eyes, maybe with a green undereye tho. It will be interesting to hear what the hubby thinks!
Thank you!

You wouldn’t happen to have a tutorial on this eyeshadow look, would you? I love it! I saw the palette when it came out and I wasn’t going to get it until now! I couldn’t figure out a look to do with these choices of colors, but now I can think of at least 5 different looks that would be amazing!
