Red-Hot Times Nine

MAC Red-Hot Times Nine Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.18 oz.) includes nine, dime-sized eyeshadows. For the types of colors and finishes included in the palette, it was actually not bad. I’d definitely suggest using this with a primer to improve blendability and pigmentation across the palette, though.

MAC Vanilla Eyeshadow

MAC Vanilla Eyeshadow

Vanilla

Vanilla is a light beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a soft, smooth consistency that was a touch powdery in the pan but applied evenly on the lid. It had good pigmentation, which was buildable to opaque coverage with a second layer. This shade lasted for seven and a half hours on me. (This eyeshadow is part of the permanent range.)

MAC Get Closer Eyeshadow

MAC Get Closer Eyeshadow

Get Closer

Get Closer is a pop of medium orange with warm, reddish undertones and a satin finish. It had good color coverage, though a little shy of truly opaque coverage, that applied evenly to the skin. The texture was slightly drier to the touch, but I didn’t notice that in practice. It lasted for eight hours on me.

MAC Carnal Charm Eyeshadow

MAC Carnal Charm Eyeshadow

Carnal Charm

Carnal Charm is a bright, medium-dark red with warm undertones and a matte finish. The color payoff was mostly opaque, and it built up well, though it seemed to go on darker than it appeared in the pan. The consistency was firm without being too stiff in the pan, so I was able to get product onto my brush without issue, but it could have been more blendable on the lid. It started to fade after eight hours of wear.

MAC Fuchsia Fury Eyeshadow

MAC Fuchsia Fury Eyeshadow

Fuchsia Fury

Fuchsia Fury is a dark, pinky-red with cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. There was very subtle pearl in the pan, but it was nearly imperceptible to my eye on the skin. It had good color coverage that went on fairly evenly and smoothly, though it could have been a bit easier to diffuse and blend. This shade wore well for eight hours.

MAC Shadowy Lady Eyeshadow

MAC Shadowy Lady Eyeshadow

Shadowy Lady

Shadowy Lady is a muted, blackened purple with a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage with a soft, dusty texture that was surprisingly difficult to blend given the powdery kickup it had in the pan. This shade wore for eight hours before fading.

MAC Lover In Me Eyeshadow

MAC Lover In Me Eyeshadow

Lover In Me

Lover In Me is a deep, muted purple with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a lightly dusty texture that wasn’t forgiving on the lid, as it did not blend out that easily and took a lot of effort to make it look half-decent. The color wore well for eight hours on me.
