Power Hungry

MAC Power Hungry MAC Girls Personality Palette ($39.50 for TBA oz.) is a set warm, light and mid-tone neutrals–there’s nothing particularly new or groundbreaking here, but it’s a solid neutral palette for someone with fair to medium skin and likes a softer, shimmery look (could easily have used another matte or two!). The palette features a new eyeshadow formula with four finishes–Satin Shine, Smooth Pearl, Foiled Shadow, and Creamy Matte–that are supposed to have a “creamy, silky texture with superior colour payoff” along with a powder highlighter that’s described as “lightweight” and has “just the right amount of pearl and pop.”

Overall, the formula isn’t night and day from the brand’s standard powder eyeshadow (and did not seem like they reinvented powder eyeshadow!), but it was noticeably softer, more finely-milled, and the Foiled finishes were denser and very sparkly–almost like an amped up take on their Lustre eyeshadows. The Creamy Matte finish seemed to have more pigmentation and blendability than of the brand’s firmer mattes have had. Unfortunately, the quality of each shade varied enough that it was not a slam dunk formulation, but I liked the direction of the formula but would like to see better consistency.

Bling Mistress

Bling Mistress is a medium, golden brown with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. While incredibly soft and blendable, there was moderate powderiness in the pan and a bit of fallout during application. This shade applied better with a primer, as it helped minimize how much it sheered out. It had medium, buildable pigmentation that lasted for seven hours on me.

Dangerously Elegant is a muted, dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a satin shimmer.

Gimme That!

Gimme That! is a bright, light gold withw arm undertones and a luminous sheen. The consistency was incredibly smooth and soft to the touch, but it was also quite dense and firm in the pan, which made it harder to get even payoff onto my brush, so the application took longer to buff and blend everything together seamlessly. Once on, though, it was quite pretty and looked blended. It wore well for eight hours on me.

If this had come on the scene 7 or 8 years ago (or however many years ago since UD’s Naked and TooFaced Natural Eye and similar palettes debuted), I’d probably be very excited about this. But now….snore…..

I hear ya! I think MAC could have made a killing putting out 6 or 8-pan eyeshadow palettes (like their pre-made 15 but half the size)… but a few years ago for neutrals.

As much as I love neutrals, I see nothing exciting here. If you don’t already own a palette of neutrals, I think there are much better options out there, like the various Urban Decay Naked and Naked Basics palettes.

Paris Nudes and Monarch cover a lot of this territory…and better. This is not my personal colorway. But 4 dupes for one shade and 2 for another, show this is def a been there, done that for your readership. Many will be duped to the gills. It would be a good starter palette, were it a tad better, for the warm neutral fans.

Christine, was I ever glad to see your review on this palette because I was going to get this and ultimately decided not to and your review matches my conclusion after waffling over it for a bit. I placed an order with MAC and decided upon the MAC Pro Eye Palette in Social Climber and Eye Shadow x 9 in Semi-Sweet Times Nine and will be picking both up tomorrow at the post office. Thanks for cementing my decision and for all the reviews that you do! This palette reminds me of the fairy tale, the Emperor’s New Clothes.

Apart from a couple of very similar medium brown shades – which is annoying because there need to be some contrast here, this palette does not really offer anything new. And it’s rating is very average as well.
