Love in the Glades

MAC Love in the Glades Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) is like a smoky take on tropical greens and blues. The palette had a mix of cooler undertones and neutral undertones, which made it one of the cooler-toned palettes that I’ve come across. The lightest shade (Grey Stroke) was the biggest miss in the palette, but the other six applied fairly well, had good pigmentation, and lasted for seven to nine hours on me (without primer).

Note, the palette only contains 0.10 oz. worth of eyeshadow, and MAC’s 9-pan palettes and quads typically contain 0.19 oz. at the same price ($32). This collection’s palettes didn’t seem small, and the pans seemed like they would contain a fair amount of product, so I was surprised to discover the pans must be very shallow!

This collection launches on May 18th.

Grey Stroke

Grey Stroke is a soft gray with neutral undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, thin texture that wasn’t dusty but would work better over an eyeshadow primer as it tended to go on a bit unevenly over bare skin. This shade started to fade after six and a half hours on me.

Cumulus

Cumulus is a muted, golden taupe with warmer undertones and a frosted sheen. It had good color payoff with a fairly soft consistency–it felt a little dry to me–that applied evenly and blended out without issue. The color stayed on well for eight hours.

Bye Bye Bahamas

Bye Bye Bahamas is a dark, bronzy brown with warmer undertones and a sparkling, frosted sheen. This shade had slightly larger sparkles in it, so there was a touch of fallout when initially applied. It had intense, opaque color coverage that applied well to bare skin and lasted for eight hours.

Neoprene Green

Neoprene Green is a bright, medium emerald green with cooler undertones. The texture was drier, almost a little chunky in a way, with a firmer press. Despite the texture, the eyeshadow actually applied well to bare skin (or over primer) without having to work at it, but it was the type of texture that went on better pressed into the skin than swept. It had good pigmentation–though it lightened applied than in the pan–and lasted for nine hours on me.

Palm Leaves

Palm Leaves is a muted, medium-dark green with warm, olive undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had rich color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin. The texture was soft, a smidgen dusty in the pan, but it applied well and blended out without trouble. This shade wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Russian Blue

Russian Blue is a subdued, deep, bluish gray with cooler undertones and a matte finish. The texture felt firmer in the pan, but it still yielded nearly opaque pigmentation in one layer. In practice, I felt like it worked well as it was the type of shade I apply less of and gradually build up (to avoid having to blend ferociously at the end). The eyeshadow wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

In some ways, this brings to mind the Tropic Cools x’s 9 palette, but even better! Between these and the UD Basquiat palettes, I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed by gorgeous, well-done palettes this spring! If I could, I’d buy them all, LoL. But seriously I would, though.

Oh goodness I really don’t need another eyeshadow palette and the performance isn’t that great anyway but I am in love with the packaging! It really reminds me of a Barbie I had when I was young that was scented!

A cooler-toned MAC palette that performs well? Sign me up!

I’ll need to swatch this in-person though; the greens might not work with my skin tone…

Very nice. Highly tempted. The failure was a B-? Excellent. Nice combos. Not too highly duped for me, except Pearl gray, which could always sub in, if the B- doesn’t work. Hah! Thanks. Do we know why my identifying info is disappearing every time? It’s a pita to put it in each time.

Meh…. It seems like the new trend is to reduce the amount of product we get for about the same price than before (benefit, tom ford).

That being said it is nice to see a cool toned palette with good performances!

I am sort of obsessed with this one. It’s so different from everything else I’m seeing right now. I would love to see you do a look with this.

This is a fabulous cool toned palette from MAC, all, bar one, had an excellent rating and the shades work really well together. I think MAC is getting its act together after so many years,

To my surprise, I really like this palette. Cumulus and Bye Bye Bahamas are the types of colours I always fall for and the sheen on Neoprene Green is gorgeous (I see from the photo of the back of the palette that it’s a Veluxe Pearl, so it’s not surprising). If this is available the next time I’m at MAC, I just might buy it….it’s the sort of thing I won’t go out of my way for (too many dupes of Cumulus and BBB and not sure I’d get much wear out of the other shades but still the sort of thing I can see myself buying as an impulse buy).
