Smoky Sleigh

MAC Smoky Sleigh Eyeshadow Palette x 6 ($33.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette that contains four mattes (beige, mauve, cool brown, black) and two shimmers (pale silver, muted teal) housed in a slim, shimmery red compact. The colors coordinated better than I anticipated once I started to work with the eyeshadows on my eye, though the quality could have been better with most of the shades. Go figure that the matte black was the best shade in the entire palette! Worth noting, while the compact might seem like a good size, it’s actually much less product than typical MAC Eyeshadow Quads (which are 0.19 oz. and this is 0.10 oz.).

Stocking Stuffer

Stocking Stuffer is a light beige with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery texture that had a bit of product drop when I worked with it, so it did have a tendency to cause other shades to turn ashy/grayish if I wasn’t careful about my placement. This shade lasted well for seven and a half hours on me.

Tree Topper

Tree Topper is a pale silver with cool undertones and a frosted finish. The consistency was drier to the touch, which resulted in a dustier feel and application where the silver looked dry on my lid unless I used it with a dampened brush. It had medium pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage using two heavy layers or if I used a dampened brush (one layer). It wore well for seven hours on me.

Holiday Secret

Holiday Secret is a muted, medium-dark teal with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had medium pigmentation paired with a smooth, firmer consistency that felt cream-like but thin–very silicone-heavy to the touch. I find that when an eyeshadow has too much slip (but is a powder-based formula) that the shade doesn’t apply as evenly to bare skin and tends to look patchy while losing some of its intensity/richness as it is buffed and blended onto the skin. It had a Lustre finish, so the sheerness was more in line with expectations. It was buildable to semi-opaque coverage, if desired, and it stayed on well for seven and a half hours on me.

Ribbon Realness

Ribbon Realness is a deeper mauve with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had medium color payoff that was buildable to mostly opaque coverage in two to three layers. The texture was soft and velvety to the touch, but I struggled to diffuse and blend the edge on this shade–I had to cheat and use the lightest shade in the palette to soften the edge instead. It lasted for eight hours on me before I noticed signs of fading.

Gagging for Gifts

Gagging for Gifts is a deep, purplish-brown with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer to medium, buildable pigmentation with a drier, thinner consistency. It was a bit of a shock to find that it actually built up and blended out without too much effort–better than Ribbon Realness! This shade lasted well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Santa's Stilettos

Santa’s Stilettos is a rich black with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had a soft, velvety texture that wasn’t too powdery nor too firmly pressed in the pan, so it yielded rich pigmentation but still blended out easily along the edges. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

Hi Christine,
Just curious where all your makeup forever reviews went? I was trying to see some swatches of their shadows? Thanks

Best,
Rebecca

I’m feeling sad over this one, yet I’m laughing at the same time. That MAC could *finally* formulate a beautiful, well performing, grade A black eyeshadow to put into one of their palettes…but every other shade looks pathetic! 😆

Honestly, nothing about this release has really spoken to me. I didn’t get this palette at all but I do think you created a beautiful eye look with it. I wouldn’t have guessed from your look that the shades were subpar as I can see every shade distinctly on your lid with well blended edges. I think that probably speaks more to your skill than MAC’s. So, I don’t think I will be buying anything from MAC this holiday season.
