Most Helpful Positive Review Baby Shadows
I wish the description stated that these shadows are a lot smaller than the normal size Mac eyeshadow pans. I don't know whether knowing that would have deterred me from purchasing this palette, but when it came in the mail I was very surprised at their size. This does seem like it would be a great travel palette though, because of it's size, mix of matte and shimmery shadows, and it pigmentation.
Most Helpful Critical Review Looks nothing like the picture
I bought this palette for my mom because the picture seems to show an all matte palette (something she wanted) and the colors were all ones she would wear. The ulta in my area does not sell MAC, so I had to trust the pictures online. When I got the palette it looked NOTHING like the pictures here, the colors didn't even look similar (regardless of the fact that some were sparkly, the tones were just completely different) and some of the darker shades with sparkles just looked downright bad when I swatched them.

Pigmented and stayed long as I needed

First of all, the picture is misleading. The colors are way more gray toned than the pictures show. Secondly, most colors don't mesh and blend together very well, the mattes are underwhelming and patchy. I've been searching far and wide for the perfect burgundy/mauvy palette, and this is NOT it.
I took a chance on MAC

I really liked this palette at the store but the colors look different at home. I think it's overpriced. Probably won't be buying it again.

No the same colors s shown a little bit darker, but good quality. Love them anyways.
TINY and NOT EVEN CLOSE to the COLORS SHOWN!
Carolyn from Shelton, WA
My first MAC palette and it is a loser. First, it is absolutely tiny, maybe 2.5 inches square...you can barely get a brush into the pan. Secondly...you don't get the colors shown in the listing here. Not one burgundy or plum, which is what I bought it for. They are a mix of matte and glittery tans and browns. In short...BORING! Quite disappointed...perhaps all of the people who think that MAC is so great need to check out Morphe or Two-Faced...even NYX, so much less expensive, has this one beat. So much for the hype.

Picture is misleading, still very pretty
J from MN
In the product picture, all nine colors look matte, but in actuality about half of the are shimmers. The palette is also very small. Despite all of this, I love the colors and they go on great. We
Nice colors but not how pictured
mrp from Indiana
I've really enjoyed experimenting with the colors, and I probably will use 75% of them, but they do not look like the picture. The actual makeup is more on the brown side overall. They go on pretty well but not as good as the individual pallets that are sold by MAC.
Love the Colors!!
Kenzie from Caldwell, ID
I love the colors! My favorite everyday look that can also be dressed up for speacial occasion. The thing is smaller than I was expecting but that is the only con.
Just what I was looking for!

Great eys colors.

I went in to get the UD Cherry Naked Palatte and walked out with this instead. Much cheaper and had a better range of colors I will use. Having hazel/golden eyes this palatte knocks it out of the park! I have NEVER purchased a palatte more than one time as there always seems to be a newer and better palatte that comes around by the time I am in need, however I WILL happily be re-purchasing this eye shadow Palatte! I do agree however that the colors on my computer monitor are not true to the colors of the palatte IMHO.

Love the maroon/purples colors! Use for everyday and going out!
Cubsfan from Columbus, Oh
I stopped in to the Columbus, Ohio Ulta & a super sweet rep helped me pick out this pallete. I had actually picked another. She taught me every day looks & was a total sweetheart! The colors in this pallete are gorgeous & easy to work with! Absolutely love 😍
Kim from Idaho
This is a great product, no fall out and great color selection. The only thing that surprised me, was how small the product is.
T I N Y, T I N Y, T I N Y - This is a MINI Palette!!!
Londonblue from Canton, Ohio
NO WHERE on the description did it mention this was a TINY palette and not full size pans. No product dimensions are listed. It's only about 3 inches square! I probably should have figured that out based on the price, but I was hoping for more. The colors are truly beautiful and everything that a MAC eyeshadow should be, however, it's rather pointless to have based on the size, unless you just want to carry it your purse for emergencies or going out directly from work. Not enough value for the price.
Looks nothing like the colors and it's TINY!
LushLover from Phoenix, AZ
Where to start? The colors look NOTHING like the image on the website. Many are very frosty which is not reflected in the product image.
Also, the palette size is teeny tiny, it seems like a travel size. Each pan is about the size of a dime.
This is going back.
Love the burgundy colors and how smoothly this goes on!
Carrie from Conway, AR
Love the colors in the Burgundy!! Goes on smooth!!
sanchezbauer from Alliance, NE
I bought this "palette" because of the colors and the deal I believed I was getting ($53 value). Wrong. This is about the size of the eyeshadows you buy at the drugstore. If I lived near an Ulta, this would be going back immediately.
yes I would. Love the way it applies and easily blends.

Love the Mac eye shadow X9 Burgundy.
julesnbrian from West Virginia
As much as I love every MAC product I've bought this one I can't say the same. The pan size is ridiculously small & the shades look nothing like the photo on the website.
xoxotjmt from TX
I was so excited to get this after ordering it online, but I got it today & I'm really disappointed at how it doesn't look like the picture... 5 of the eye shadows are shimmery which isn't shown at all in the picture. The worst part is that each eye shadow is only the size of a penny.

This palette is amazing!
Hny86 from Fredericksburg, VA
Very pigmented, beautiful shades. One of my very favorite palettes. Can create many different color combos. Love it!
MissBea from Arkansas
This product looked super pretty online, and I assumed the size of the pans would be comparable to the price point. I was disappointed when I got it in the mail today and the pan sizes were the size of trial/travel size shadows. Very shallow and about the size of penny. I will be returning this item.
