Most Helpful Positive Review Beautiful palette but not like the picture
This is my very first time using MAC eyeshadows and I'm pleased with how well they blend and how pigmented they are! However, I'm disappointed that the hues don't look like the picture. I was expecting to get something very rose/pink/mauve-ish for the entire palette, but the entire top row is in the brown family. The middle row does show on my skin as rose-ish hues, and the bottom row is a lot more taupe on me. I'm light-medium skin toned. Just to reiterate, the quality and colors are beautiful, and I've been able to use it for work everyday & for going out. The colors just weren't what I expected based on the pictures and on the name "dusky rose."
Most Helpful Critical Review Buyer be aware
The Dusky Rose Times Nine is the same palette as Magnificent Me. This is great if you liked that palette but disappointing if you thought you were purchasing something new. Frustrated that MAC is renaming items.

Colors shown are not true to what you get. only 2 soft rose colors, everything else is Brown. Also extremely SMALL. Disappointing.
KH from California
I was excited when I bought this pallette of colors but it is so tiny, almost like a pallette of samples. I can't wear all the colors so the ones I can will be gone in a short period of time.
Chrissy from Dallas
I Love this palette. This is my everyday go-to for a natural look. I also use the taupe for my brow fill color.
Artemis from Salem, Massachusetts
These colors are amazing. They're long lasting and you can apply them for a natural daytime look, or more intense for evening.
Not pigmented well
Monica from Philadelphia
Not only are the colors not that pigmented they are actually not as pictured. The bottom two left are more gray and the only pink I would say are top left and middle left. All others are brown.
Lisa from Phoenix, AZ
I have used up most of this palette. I have had it for a year, and still going. This has me sold on Mac eyeshadows. Thank you for my very, very long layover at the MAC counter at the airport!
I would never get this again / not what I thought
Dakota from Ohio
Didn't like the product ended up returning it.
9 shade pallet
jjioana from Illinois
Nice neutral pallet. Not as today as expected. Great tiny on the go pallet.
It was broke before I could open the box
ALH from Virginia beach
I wanted this pallette so much and it arrived broken
color not as shown
iva from fl
Should have read the reviews. There is maybe one color that can be considered Dusky Rose. The others are brown. The quality of the product is great. I love MAC shadows. Just very disappointed with the color.
Not the best
Catalina from CALIFORNIA
The eyeshadows are not that pigmented, and the shimmers don´t even show up. The mattes are not that bad
Rosy and beautiful
Carm from Alabama
This is a great pallet for green eyes. I do Bridal makeup and I use this one most of the time!
Jesse from Springfield, IL
the palette is much smaller than it appears. I do enjoy the colors. I was expecting the shadows to be the size of their standard eyeshadow pans. I honestly feel like it's more worth the money to buy one of the morphe 9 pan palettes.
Would not buy again
Kamjo from Minnesota
This eye shadow does not hold up for very long. Wore 3 times for less than 4 hours.
The perfect combination of cool tones.
GaPeach from Columbus GA
I have been struggling with eyeshadows being too warm looking and this was the best switch for cool tones! Looks great
Not as pictured...
Sam from Dracut, MA
What is pictured and what I got are very different. It's very small, they could have an image depicting scale as not everyone will read the product weight. The hues in the photo look rosy, they're not. I expected the tones to be a bit cooler, too, just by looking at the actual palette. They pull a tad warm, but not "dusty rose". It's not a horrible product by any means, but the photos could be more accurate. This is the first and probably last MAC product I'll ever buy. The price point just wasn't really worth it.
Keri from LA
This palette is super dry and powdery. The colors don't come out very nice, if you are looking for a dusty eyeshadow palette, get something else.
I had 3of these Mac palettes and I tossed them out.
Mac cosmetic isn't that great in the first place so
Dusky Rose? More like dusty brown
Cat from Atlanta, GA
I honestly thought when this arrived that they had shipped the wrong one. I checked the box and the sticker and still couldn't believe this was supposed to be the Dusky Rose pictured online. I expected pinks and purples. They're all brown. With that said, the quality of the shadow is nice and I'm going to keep it bc i do wear browns.
Change picture and description.
SpookyZ from Sacramento, CA
I bought this palette with the assumption that there'd be pinks or "rose" colors in it because that's what the pictures show and what the description tell you. That is not the case AT ALL. They're all browns. I didn't think I'd need to read the reviews because Ulta is apparently a really good company, so now I'm stuck with a palette my sister won't even use.
Not as Pictured, NO Rose or pink colors included, Very Small
Cameron from Virginia, USA
I guess it was my fault that I didn't look at the reviews. Love Mac products and all my eye shadows normally. This palette is very small, not a full sized eye shadow palette. I was surprised but okay with the size at first. The most disappointing fact is that the colors are nothing as pictured. What you actually get is a set of beige and browns in matte & frost. No pinks, no rose. This was mentioned by a few other reviewers but unfortunately I missed didn't read ahead of time.
Everything you want in an everyday shadow pallet
Michaelann from Canton, ohio
I was looking for an easy everyday pallet and the girls at Ulta suggested this one and I've loved it so far!
More Brown than Rose
Monica from California
This is my first MAC palette. While I'm fairly impressed with the quality, I was surprised to see the colors are nowhere near what these images show them to be here and the palette is tiny. I really wanted more of the rose or mauve colors like the picture but this is truly all earth toned. 3 stars for decent quality. I'll keep this but won't buy another MAC palette online without swatching or looking at in store first. Too expensive and small to not get what you are seeing.
Beautiful colors. Blends without effort.
Ladybuglady from NC
Used all colors. Blends so easily . Great highlight, transition, and crease colors. The shimmers are subtle which I love! Not a big glitter fan but like shimmer.
Golfergyrl from Indiana
This palette is perfect for brunettes with blue eyes! Love it!!
Pinks & Browns
Deb from Denver
I love this pallet. It's a fantastic assortment of pinks, pinky-browns, coppers, and a grey shade. The colors in pallet are different than they appear in this product image, so look up other images & swatches online. It has a great mix of matte and shimmer shades, creating looks that have more interest & depth for what on the surface seems basic.
