Bottom Row: Shale, Quarry, Trax, Shadowy Lady
My first MAC eyeshadow purchase I depotted and put in my palette. I just added a magnet and it stuck right in my palette. I have saved the packaging for back to mac. I personally prefer using the palettes to the single shadows as it makes storage a lot more streamlined and also it makes it faster for me to get ready so I dont need to be grabbing single shadows.
I label my palettes by with a lablel maker. This helps me to quickly know which palette is what.
I dont really have any special order right now for organizing my palettes but you will notice that I use a label maker to know which color is which in the palette. If I switch around the colors I can typically either make a new label or pull off the label and put in a new one.
I have swatched below all of the colors in the palette. I will try and let you know what I think of each of the colors and which ones are my favorites.
Satin Taupe, Smut, Shale
Satin Taupe is a cult favorite and I think a color that everyone should have in their collection if they are buying MAC eyeshadows. I do think that other brands do also make some amazing taupes as well but this is a nice color that would work for everyone. Smut is a great color to darken the outer corner area for a brown or purple smokey eye. Shale is a very pretty color as well.
Sable, Haux, Quarry
I think that Sable is one of my favorite colors in this palette. When I swatched it I remembered how much I loved it as the color goes on so buttery. Another favorite is haux which is a great crease color. I dislike quarry as probably is shown from the swatch. I couldnt get any color payoff from this.
Beauty Marked, Star Violet, Trax
Beauty Marked is not a color that I use or enjoy. It is a purpely color with sparkle in it so not practical for me for day to day. Star Violet is one my other favorites. I love this color for fall. Its so beautiful and I chose this over Cranberry as the two are very similar. Trax is a nice color but I'm not sure it is one of my favorites in this palette.
Stars n Rockets, Fig 1, Sketch, Shadowy Lady
Stars n Rockets is such a fun color. I don't wear it as much as some of the others because for me its not an everyday color but it has amazing color payoff and is really a pretty color. Fig 1 is one of my favorite matte purples to wear for Fall. Sketch is another cult favorite and great to have in your collection. Shadowy Lady I dislike as the payoff is terrible. I couldn't swatch it at all.
So that wraps up my MAC purple eyeshadow collection! Be sure to check out posts of my other MAC eyeshadow palettes:
