Of all the shadows, I like Bossa Blue the best because it seems to apply like a neutral. I’d probably use it as a crease and outer corner colour, with a more flesh toned shadow on the rest of the lid and Stila Starlight on the inner 1/3.

A MAC rep at Nordstrom showed me how to mix these…dry…since they can be pretty light..over other shadows more as a highlight. That works with the lighter colors so I’d start with that….and I’m fascinated with the pinkish one …so I’d play with that one first!

I pretty much use 2-3 shades from the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette. In the past, I used to also only wear no makeup makeup period, like, Boy by Chanel was my go to lip. Barely there lipstick, just pinky nudes and tinted lip balms. Now I have bright pinks and blue-reds and plums I like playing with. If I won, it would be fun to start experimenting with bolder eye looks. Of course, I’d probably adhere to the lips OR eyes rules! I still have plenty of subtle lip looks I can pair these bold eye shadows with.

I would draw a thin line of Bossa Blue above my eyes, line with a black liquid eyeliner and finish with lots of mascara and a nude lip!

I would wear Dare To Bare as highlight and Bossa Blue in the crease with time to tango as the base. Than wear it with a nude lip color.

Caribbean, Dare to Bare and Nylon on the eyes and likely just do a lipstick like NARS Pago Pago and a tinted moisturizer.

I would wear one of the lighter shade with a matte neutral shadow in the crease during the day or the darker colours as smoky eye for the evening.

I’d wear Tropica as a sheer wash with deep bronzed winged liner, a bronzed and hilighted face, and a pop of sheer, bright coral/pink gloss.

I’d create a smokey eye with bossa blue as I love the color when mixed ; then I’d line the bottom lid with the blue only; a nice pair of falsies and I’m done! šŸ™‚

Omg want! I’d wear the Tropica eyeshadow with MAC Nicki 2 lipstick and a hint of pink blush (YSL cream lush in fuchsia temptation).

Caribbean on the lid
cha-cha-cha and bossa blue in the crease
bossa blue on the lower lash line
dare to bare for inner corner and brow highlight.

I would try Dare to Bare on the lid, Caribbean on the crease, and Cha-cha-cha on the corner and as a liner. I’d probably try Time to Tango, Tropica, and Bossa Blue in a similar manner.

A wash of colour across the lid in Time To Tango, a highlighting sweep of Dare to Bare, natural skin and a pink pop of colour on the lips. Perfect!

Dare to bare would look awesome put over any eyeshadow in the middle of the lid catching the light, it would give the look a 3 dimensional feel.

Bossa blue all over lid and line with the blue veining part, add rio skinfinish on cheeks with a peachy nude lipstick and subculture lipliner!

Since each different eye shadow has a mixture of colors I think mixing them all on the lid would be a unique but fun look.

I would wear dare to bare all over my lid with beautiful winged classic eyeliner for a beautiful daytime look with mac angel lipglass and lipstick and with benefits coralista blush.

Hard to choose just one šŸ™‚
I would wear time to tango all over the lid with a winged black liner and a thin gold liner over it

I like Bossa Blue and Cha Cha the best because they seem to apply like a neutral. Iā€™d probably use them as a crease and outer corner colours, with a more flesh toned shadow on the rest of the lid.

Thank you for doing giveaways:D!!, very great of you.
I am a 29 year old stay at home Mother of three 9,7, and almost 2.
Honestly I have never tried M.A.C but I have heard wonderful things about their shadows and pigments.
Take Care- Sincerely, Amber

Would wear the paler ones – Tropica. Time to Tango, Dare to Bare – as shadow; the others applied wet as liner, especially Cha Cha Cha

I would wear Bossa Blue over my lid with a bit of Time to Tango in the inner corner. I’d pair that up with a peachy nude blush & a sheer peach lip.

The Mineralize eyeshadow in Cha cha Cha, I’d like to wear with softly contoured face and the Lip pencil in Ablaze..I think they’d look fantastic together šŸ™‚

I would wear caribbean over the lid area and lightly as a crease color. I would blend it with a warm mat brown for added intensity in the crease. i would use dare to bare on the center of the lid and in the inner corner of the eyes.

I’d wear Caribbean all over the lid with a turquoise liner underneath, with peach lipstick and the same shadow dusted lightly on my cheeks.

I don’t own EVEN ONE MAC makeup product so I’d wear it proudly number one, but also I’d love to wear the Dare to Bare as a pretty highlight/blush.

I would love to use all of them. But I think I would wear Bossa Blue with a nude lip and a lop of mascara, or I will go a step further and wear it with a coral lip for the summer. šŸ™‚

I would wear Tropica eyeshadow with maxi dress in turquoise ! perfect for summery eyes šŸ™‚
the purple colur at the crease and the blue colour at the lid ! also add a bit of soft pink blush and finish with a coral pink lipstick !

I’d wear Tropica on the lid over Fyrinnae’s Pixie Epoxy with Mac Stars n Rockets in the crease, Mac Pink Freeze on the browbone and inner corners and Raincheck? from the Benefit World’s Sexiest Neutrals Collection in the outer V!

I would love to try the orange and darker blue shades since I have olive skin and these should pop against my skin tone! The lighter colors would most likely work as a highlighter for me.. Also, I have not tried any of the MAC baked eyeshadows yet.. So it ll be exciting to try and review them on my blog.. Thanks for the giveaway Temptalia..

I would wear caribbean on the outer corner, with an intense gold like UD Baked on the lid and use a black to smoke out the lash line with lots of mascara.

I would wear bossa blue all over the lid and blendet out for a kind of smokey eye with dare to bare as an inner corner highlight and soft lips

I would love to experiment with all the shades, but the first one I’d use would be Tropica. I’d wear it as a wash with MAC Snow Shadow Pro Longwear liner, MAC Stay Sweet Lipglass, and MAC Star Wonder Mineralize Skinfinish as blush.

I’d do a wash of Bossa Blue and follow up with a fun black liner and some berry lip color to pop against the grey tone blue of Bossa.

I would love to use Dare to Bare as a lid wash and highlighter. I think Time to Tango would be good in the inner lid and Tropica for the crease. Highlight that outer ‘v’ of the crease with Cha-Cha-Cha!

Mac Cha-cha-cha for a smokey eye, Harmony or something pinky-neutral on the cheeks and Force of love on the lips for a night out šŸ™‚

Oh, wow! These shadows are all so electric and bold! I’d love to be able to experiment with the colours, the shadows I have now are all pretty tame browns. I’m especially intrigued by Tropica and Caribbean!

I’d wear this beauties just as a soft wash of color on my lids – also I’d just happily gaze upon their beauty in the pan!

I would use Tropica as an all over eyeshadow and line it with a liquid eyeliner and create strong lashes while I keep rest of my makeup neutral

I would draw a thin line of Bossa Blue above my eyes, line with a black liquid eyeliner and finish with lots of mascara, neutral blush (warm soul) and a nude lip!

I’d wear Cha Cha Cha as a blush. The colors are amazing and the pearlish pink would look so great w/ that orange blended across the cheek.

Dare to Bare – For a fresh, light look I would apply Dare to Bare damp across the lid w/ Urban Decay Verve as a highlighter and Urban Decay Suspect in the crease.

I love Time to Tango. Would wear it on its own with a dark mauve-y gel liner in the water line, thinly on the lash line and lots of mascara with a pale pink lip.

dare to bear would be great for a day to day look for me, i would probably go for a natural glowy/ sunkissed look.

I LOVE the dare to bare caribbean, I would wear either of those on the eyes with some black liquid eyeliner and a ton of black mascara, a nude gloss and a blush like tarte’s babydoll. Keep it simple and fresh.

I think Time To Tango and Bossa Blue would become my new daily shadows! The whole collection is lovely, but those two would look great on my baby blues!

Caribbean is gorgeous… It’s just perfect for a Summer look, with some bronzer and a soft blush to bring out the healthiness of the skin šŸ™‚

I would wear Dare To Bare as a highlight in the inner corner and under the brow, Tropica all over the lid, anc Cha-Cha-Cha in the crease,

I would wear caribbean with a natural look with the Too Faced natural eye palette, thick eyeliner with wing and a bright pink colour: MAC viva glam nicki!

i would love to wear these color in combo of smokey eye look or just way out winged look. i dont own one piece of mac products but ive heard they are great but too expensive.

Ik would wear bossa blue with tropica on a hot summer date with my bf! With just a shimmer on my pale cheeks, MAC’s lightscapade.. Wear a nice white lace summer dress and some amazing heels!

I would love to wear Time to Tango toward the inside of my lid and crease, with light hints of Caribbean on the outside of my lid and along the lower lash line. Along with winged eyeliner and mascara šŸ™‚

My fav is caribean ..a gorgeous rosey coppery eyeshadow! this one all over the lids..with little of carbon on the outer corners for smoked effect..lots of mascara!

Pretty much want all of these. I would love to wear Caribbean eye shadow with a cat eye wing, and coral light lipstick and coral blush. I love Time to Tango for the night time, its so dreamy. Dare to Bare is a beautiful highlight as well.

oooh la la i would wear “Bossa Blue”, i would wear like a smokey look, pick up a lil’ blue on my lid and put the gorgeous brown in my crease! And to be extra girly i would wear my favorite bright pink lipstick, b/c i love bold colors! :o)

I would create a dramatic smokey eye look with MAC Bossa Blue with Nude Glossy Lip color on my lips, Soft Peach Blusher brushed on cheeks and a Perfect Black Party Dress.

I would wear Dare to Bear all over the lid for a more nude look and pair it with a bright lip and bold black eyeliner

I’d wear MAC Cha-Cha-Cha Mineralize Eyeshadow to create a daytime appropriate smoky eye and I’d add a peach blush and lipstick

I would wear Tropica on my lid, Cha Cha on my outer crease and Dare to Bare as my highlight and as my inner corner highlight as well.

I’ll try doing a dark smokey eye makeup with cha cha cha and I’ll finish up the look with a nude lipcolor. Dare to Bare can also be used as a highlighter!

I would definitely try some experimenting with them all. I (similarly to you) don’t have the best of luck with the mineralize shadows, but sometimes the look of the darker, bright colored ones can be quite fun and dramatic ~ and if I’m just going out for a short time (maybe want to get a little dressed up for a movie or something!) =D I might try and get away with wearing some of those brighter colors for a short while. Hopefully that would minimize the issues with wear time, etc. since I wouldn’t be planning on wearing them long! =) Also, colors like ‘Dare to Bare’ are quite pretty, and would probably do well as a highlighting color in the corner of the eye ~ or maybe on the arch of the brow if applied dry. Or as a shimmery pale/neutral base to get things started before applying other fun colors on top.
Thx for the opportunity Christine! It’s appreciated, as always!! =)
