Rose Gold

MAC Rose Gold Snow Ball Eye Compact ($29.50 for 0.28 oz.) is a new, limited palette that contains six eyeshadows. It’s housed in a slim compact, and each eyeshadow is almost the equivalent of a full-sized MAC eyeshadow (0.047 oz. vs. 0.05 oz.). The shades came together without too much work as each eyeshadow was fairly pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing. There are two Dazzleshadows, which are more glittery shades, so if that’s not your cup of tea, you might find them harder to work with or too sparkly for your preferences.

Winterlude

Winterlude is a light beige with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. It had excellent pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery consistency that was blendable on the skin but did have a tendency to turn the darker browns in the palette gray and slightly uneven. The color wore well for seven and a half hours on me before fading slightly.

She Sparkles

She Sparkles is a light, silvery pewter with neutral-to-warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had sheer coverage when applied with a dry brush, whereas it had mostly opaque coverage when applied with a dampened brush, but MAC doesn’t indicate that the pigmentation should be anything other than “rich.” The texture was slightly drier and noticeably sparkly, and while the brand might claim “minimal fallout,” I’d say there was a moderate amounnt during application and then slight fallout throughout the day.

Formula Overview

$18.00/0.05 oz. - $360.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "rich, stay-true pigments" that have a "twinkling sheen" with "minimal fallout." I didn't see it state that the formula could be used wet, but my experience is that it definitely can and often is preferable to apply the shades with a dampened brush to get richer coverage and smoother application. Some shades, however, work well on their own (pigmented, blendable, fairly long-wearing), and they have minimal to light fallout depending on the shades--the chunkier the sparkle, the more likely there is of greater fallout. The texture is soft, sometimes a little drier to the touch, but most shades are blendable.

Shiver of Delight

Shiver of Delight is a medium copper with warm, red undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had good color coverage in a single layer, even dry, paired with a sparkling, lightly dusty texture. It was fully opaque and had a smoother, more even application when applied with a fingertip or a dampened brush. This shade did not have as much fallout during application as She Sparkles. It wore well for eight hours with slight fallout over time.

Drama in the Snow

Drama in the Snow is a medium-dark taupe brown with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The consistency was firmer and needed a heavier hand to work with unless one wanted to build the color up very gradually. I noticed that the color turned a bit grayer as I blended it and it had a chance to sit on my skin for a couple of minutes. It lasted for eight hours on me.

Much improved version from the MAC holiday palettes of many years past! Enough so, that I might just need to get it for posterity sake, as somebody obvs fell asleep at the wheel of their notorious Grinch-ly holiday machine this year! Nice for a change!

This is an excellent little palette that would be perfect for travelling: lots of really wearable everyday shades. My only wish was that the gold and silver shades were shimmers rather than glitters.
Beautiful eye look Christine.
