Oh My Banana

MAC Oh My Banana Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a brighter mix of warm-toned shades from pale gold to coral to plum. This palette has a few repromotes, including two permanent, single shades (Retrospeck and Soft Brown), so you may find your stash already have these, if you’re a long-time MAC fan. Of the three palettes in the collection, I felt like this was the easiest to use cohesively, and I liked the contrast added by the coral and plum shades. Overall, the palette was good–easy to work with, pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing–and one of MAC’s better pre-made palettes!

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.

Big Kahuna

Big Kahuna is a light-medium, yellow gold with warm undertones and a fine, pearly shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable to opaque coverage with two layers (it was nearly opaque over primer, though). The consistency was soft, a touch dusty but not prone to sheering out, and blendable on the skin. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Retrospeck

Retrospeck is a light-medium, dirty gold–hints of brown in it–with a sparkling finish. This is a permanent shade, and it is also a “Lustre” finish, which is supposed to be sheerer and glittery; it is the latter but not the former, which I imagine many will prefer as there was a lot less fallout as the powder combined and blended better on the skin than if it had been looser or sheerer. This shade lasted well for seven and a half hours on me.

Soft Brown

Soft Brown is a soft, medium brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was rich and opaque, while the eyeshadow was smooth, silky, and finely-milled. It blended out easily on the skin and lasted for eight hours before fading on me. This shade is part of the permanent range.

Electric Mandarin

Electric Mandarin is a bright, medium coral-orange with warm, red undertones and a satin sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a soft, smooth consistency that wasn’t too thick or too thin, so it was easy to blend out but still adhered evenly to bare skin. The color wore well for just over eight hours before I noticed any fading.

All's Rosy

All’s Rosy is a muted, medium-dark plum with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation, which was buildable to full coverage with just a touch more (not even a full second layer) patted on top. The eyeshadow was soft, just a touch powdery in the pan, and blendable on the lid. It stayed true-to-color for eight hours on me.

Land of Delights

Land of Delights is a rich, medium-dark plum with warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had opaque color coverage, but the texture was firmer and a little harder to blend out. It was easier to work with over primer but took some extra effort to diffuse along the edges compared to the other eyeshadows in the palette. The eyeshadow wore nicely for eight and a half hours on me.

The first thing I thought when I saw the name of this was yellow. I am surprised that with a name like “oh, my banana”, it is not more yellow. Maybe I am just not very cultured and missed something somewhere. . . .

I’m in love with this collection at this point. 😍 This palette, too, will be coming home to Mama!

Sadly, I won’t be able to wear it or Fruit A La La, nor the UD Basquiat Tenant palettes until my face is back to normal. I was dc’d with shingles on my face and side of my head last night, put on Valtrex (an antiviral) and Tramadol (painkiller), and will probably not be wearing any makeup except BB cream w/sunscreen and lipgloss for at least a few weeks. Feeling a ton of pain, as if I got beat up. Not looking too pretty, either. And it won’t let me sleep! 😢

There are some gems in the launch!

I’m so sorry about your diagnosis, Nancy! I hope you heal up soon!! <3

Nancy, sorry to hear. Have had shingles a few times, and oh boy it is painful. Get lots of rest and hope you feel better soon

Thanks, AB! Yeah, this is definitely quite painful. They’re at the blister stage, which means the burning sensation is very strong, like a 3rd degree burn. I’ve heard that the next stage isn’t too pleasant, either! 🤕

Sorry to hear about the shingles, Nancy. My late grandmother and my ex-SIL had it, and I know it can be quite painful and debilitating. I hope your current flare-up goes away quickly.

TYVM, Rachel. This looks and feels like I’ve got major burns all over my one side of my face. There’s also an even worse area on my scalp. Saw my Doc yesterday, and she not only verified the previous Doc’s dx, but said not to wear makeup over it to hide it when I asked her if I could use my BB cream with spf! 😭

I feel your pain, Nancy. I developed horrible eczema on my cheeks which is probably nowhere near as bad as yours. But it’s clearing up with good old Hydrocortisone 1%.
Good luck Nancy! Hope your condition improves right away.
It’s especially tough when you love makeup and can’t enjoy it when you get a flare up.

You’re so rright! I may have to get it now, lol! The shades are lovely, but that other palette is just so big. This one seems just right! 🙂

This is a pretty good palette with lots of summery shades. Whilst it is not shades I would wear, the colours are cohesive and lovely.
Very pretty eye look Christine.

Fun palette, interesting mix of colours. I’m cool toned leaning to neutral but I think I could wear those colours. Peach looks really nice with my green-grey eyes. They’re warm but not too yellow toned or muddy.

I really love this palette also. MAC you’re killing me. I can’t believe I don’t own soft brown? I think I have intended to pick it up and just never did, LOL.
