Parfait Amour frost
Parfait Amour, 'Perfect Love' in French, is a beautiful cool toned violet shade. Unfortunately it does lack pigmentation and staying power, so I would recommend priming the eyes and using a dense brush for application (e.g MAC 217). (Tutorial here)
Possibly my favourite eyeshadow of all time - a gorgeous burgundy shade with extremely slight red shimmer. No joke, everytime I wear this shadow I get compliments on my eye makeup! If you have green or blue eyes you need this eyeshadow - it really does bring out the colour. I like to wear it in the crease with Naked Lunch all over the lid, or alone as an eyeliner on the top lash line. (Tutorial here and here)
Satin Taupe frost...?
One of the more well known MAC eyeshadows, Satin Taupe is the perfect shimmery cool toned Taupe. It's a lovely colour for the crease, but I often need to pair it with a warmer toned shadow all over the lid or I find my eyes looking too... greyish?
Naked Lunch frost
Firstly, love the name. Naked Lunch is a frosty light pink and a lovely all over the lid or highlight colour. I remember I had such high expectations for this eyeshadow and was slighlty disappointed when I first tried it, but since then I have found ways to make it work without looking too frosty or sickly on my complextion.
Sumptous Olive veluxe pearl
Similarly to Naked Lunch, I was initially disappointed with this eyeshadow. In the pan it looks like a gorgeous khaki olive, but on my skin tone it appears to have more golden undertones, not exactly very flattering on me. Again, I have found ways to make it work, but it's definitely a shadow that I'm always so close to selling.
The most boring eyeshadow in my palette, yet the only one I reach for everyday. This muted beige is the perfect shade for filling in my eyebrows.
I used to own All That Glitters, possibly one of the most hyped MAC eyeshadows. Everybody seems to love it... but me. I owned it but after a year of it just collecting dust in my drawer, I realised I need to break my 'I don't wear it, but it's a classic, so I need it' habit and sold it. For some reason the gorgeous peachy champagne shade that looks amazing in the pan and on everyone else, looks bland on my eyes and makes me look like I'm sick or have an eye infection. Sigh.
