The New Palette

As promised a review of my new MAC quad is here…

Wedge – a beautiful slightly warm mid tone taupe brown that is a perfect transition or crease shade. This is one for pale skinned people in my opinion, as it can come out a bit light and ashy when used in the crease on my skin tone. But still a good definition shadow.

Espresso – a cool toned medium brown that is my only disappointing shadow in this palette. It’s has limited colour pay off and doesn’t blend very easily, but looks lovely built up along the lash line as a softer alternative to eyeliner.

Patina – a duo chrome green bronze gold hybrid colour that is the perfect all over lid colour. It has a frost finish and is a probably best described as a light taupe with gold shimmer. It works perfectly with a bit of Espresso blended in the outer corner.

Tempting – a warm toned chocolate brown with a golden shimmer and lustre. It is probably the best lustre finish I’ve tried from MAC as it is smooth, richly pigmented and has minimal fallout.

Next on my wish list… Sable and Twinks
