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.

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!

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 😛

I’m struggling with the same problem as you, trying to stop myself from putting it on my list but trying to think of excuses why to get it : ) I think i’ll have to skip this one if i already have a quad of 4 purple shadows.

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 🙂

Definitely Signature Blue. Nocturnal might be a lil’ tricky! If you are cool-toned, it should be no problem, though.

I’m fair-cool and I sometimes wear a silver liner over Parfait Amour or Deep Truth for a night out and it really pops. I can’t wait to try Nocturnal

Nice name btw 😉

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…

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…

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?

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!

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!!!

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!

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!
