MAC Primapanda Nicopanda Full Face Kit ($40.00 for 0.40 oz.) makes one wonder if brands even bother to test their own products prior to releasing them to consumers. Every single product in the palette fell below what one would look for in a mid-end product with two shades being absolutely atrocious. Eyeshadow primer did not alleviate the overall application issues and only improved wear by a few hours but by no means long enough to make it through even an eight-hour day.

MAC Plum Sparkle Powder Blush

MAC Plum Sparkle Powder Blush

MAC Plum Sparkle Powder Blush

Plum Sparkle

Plum Sparkle is medium-dark plum with cool undertones and flecks of silver sparkle over a matte finish. It had good pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with two layers. The texture was drier and dusty with a slight graininess to the touch. It applied somewhat unevenly but could be blended out with some effort. It wore well for eight hours on me.

MAC Midas Eyeshadow

MAC Midas Eyeshadow

Midas

Midas is a light-medium peach with warm undertones and flecks of copper micro-glitter. It was sheer, dry, dusty, and applied patchy, even over primer with a dampened brush. It did not last longer than two hours on me.

MAC Freakshow Eyeshadow

MAC Freakshow Eyeshadow

Freakshow

Freakshow is a pale lavender with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had sheer coverage with a drier, more powdery texture that was prone to kicking up excess in the pan, not sticking well to bare skin, and disappeared from my lids within an hour of wear.

MAC BLK Eyeshadow

MAC BLK Eyeshadow

BLK

BLK is a deep brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and a satin finish. The texture was slightly dusty and more prone to fallout during application if I wasn’t very careful to pat it on. It had good pigmentation that blended out fairly easily. This shade lasted for seven and a half hours.

MAC Pout Eyeshadow

MAC Pout Eyeshadow

Pout

Pout is a soft, light-medium lavender with subtle, warm pink undertones and a satin finish. It had medium coverage, which wasn’t buildable, and a dry, thin texture that was dusty and prone to fading and sheering out. It applied with more promise than the other two horrendous shades in the palette, but it ended up just as much of a disappointment as it wore poorly. The color had faded and disappeared on my lid within two hours of wear.
