Most Helpful Positive Review ABSOULUTELY PERFECT (NW20/dark brown hair/green eyes)
Where has this palette been my whole life?? I went into the Mac store just to re-up on mascara and this was an impulse buy my husband actually talked me into - and I'm so glad he did! With my warm skin (NW20), green eyes, and very dark hair, these colors are now my go-to for an everyday look that still has a little pop. I love that these are all matte finishes and that they are all so complementary to one another. The intensity of the pigmentation is amazing and a little bit goes a long way. Please please PLEASE don't ever discontinue this palette (but if you do, please make sure all colors are available in your regular eye shadow line).If I ever see these on the "Goodbyes" page, I will buy every last one. Seriously amazing.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not worth the price
I love MAC and I like this palatte. I was expecting full size shadows, not the little ones. I have nothing bad to say about the palatte itself. However, had I know this palatte was so small, I would've purchased the other full size palatte I was considering.

All matte shades were the selling point for me. They are super pigmented. I find them to be too pigmented for my liking as shadow, even with a light hand because they don't blend well. They are excellent when applied wet/damp as eyeliner though. Even the lighter shades are pretty dark against my light skin tone so this is like a dreamy eyeliner palette in that regard. I'm blonde, blue eyes, Nordic mutt pasty, olive/pink/cool undertones.
All the matte you need!
Jessie from Chicago
This is a beautiful matte palette. Yes, it is smaller (if you haven't seen it in person each eye shadow color is about the size of a dime versus a Mac individual eyeshadow pot is about the size of a quarter) but that doesn't take away from the quality and the color pay off from very little product I had this palette a year or so and I use it at least a few times a week (not so much these past months) and I haven't hit pan yet. All colors are beautiful on their own for a swipe of color or together for more depth. This is a great investment! The yellowish color up top is absolutely gorgeous and unique I'd buy the palette again for that color.
I would buy this product again

Good quality make up
Great for Bridal
Moni from California
I'm a professional makeup artist and I love using the semi-sweet eyeshadow palette on my lighter skin brides. Anyone tan and darker it won't work as well, but the colors work great on a fair/light, cool toned person. Matt and opaque, they work great over an eyeshadow primer. They blend easily. I like using a combination on colors 1, 2, 4, 6, 7.
Well...is size an issue for you?
Teradactyl from Evansville, IN
I love MAC shadows, so they definite didn't disappoint. I guess I just didn't read the fine print that the shadows would be in mini size for this palette. I was expecting a nine pan palette with the normal sized MAC shadows in it. Definitely not the case. I was pretty shocked when I got my shipment and saw this little thing hiding at the bottom of the box. Don't get me wrong, it's super cute and would be great for traveling. I just don't know if I'd purchase another one now that I know how small it is.
Does not last
Ritang from Florida
Love the colors but does not last. Very dark when applied, ends up all over the face and within an hour or two it creases and balls up....yuck! So wanted to love but total fail!
Can't Do a Full Eye With
Nthomas from Atlanta, GA
I bought this product to be a staple product that wouldn't require me to dip into another palette for an everyday look, but it really fell short of the mark and for the price was not worth it. Also note that there is no mirror, which is a big con when considering it to be an everyday basics palette.
I love the colors but it was smaller than I thought
Leyla from San Francisco
I love the product and I'm going to keep it but I wouldn't buy it again. I bought it because it was on sale, but had I realized how small it is I probably would have skipped it.
ItsMe from California
It's too small I mean DIME SIZE and no mirror the colors are too similar you might as well buy a few single colors you know you will like.
My Go To Palatte!
Christine from NJ
The best assortment of natural colors I have ever used. Warm, cool, and neutral hues in a perfect size to tuck in my makeup bag for touch ups throughout the day. Love!
Best Palette I Have Ever Used
Roshan from Utah
I was pleasantly surprised by this palette. When I received it they weren't colors that I would have chosen but they are the best colors I have ever used! They go perfectly with my true olive skin (green undertones with yellowish cast, too). I love using it wet as an eyeliner. It lasts all day!
Great Eyeshadow Palette
carycarbz from Miami, Fl
Beautiful, natural looking bold colors. Highly pigmented and long lasting. Perfect for travel. Small and compact.
Unicornthecob from Southgate
These colors are beautiful, but come on darker than they look. Still beautiful though.
monica from Palm Harbor
You don't have to use but a very little at a time. Nice and smooth.
My Go-To Palette
Makeup Moxie from Phoenix
I love this palette! Love the colors, perfect size for on the go, can easily do a beautiful smoky eye using only my fingers if needed (forgot my brushes at home once), blends well, and wears all day and night.
Kelly from Anaheim,CA
Bought this because I dont have manmany colors like this. It is smaller than I expected so it's perfect for on the go and travel. the colors are really pigmented so a little goes a long way. I've done a natural neutral look and a smoky look with this pallette.
ChicWitch from Chambanaland
I like dark, earthy looks and this eyeshadow palette is perfect for that. The color payoff is great and the powder is easy to work with. I kind of wish that pink was a tope or raspberry shade instead, or maybe a dark purple, but otherwise it is amazing.
Great for travel
BeautyBuff from Illinois
This is a beautiful and versatile pallet! It's great for travel - much more packable than most others. It blends well and all the colors look great together. It's a little pricey for the size but I am not disappointed. Not much fallout which I love!
Essential eyeshadow palette if you prefer dark tones
Chicwitch from Champaign Il
I love the mix of shades in here. The formula is really nice. It's neutral to a degree but there are lots of dark colors and I appreciate that. Wish I could trade out one of them for perhaps a copper, but otherwise it's perfect.
Jmp from KY
Great colors and blends and wears well.
Cat from NY
I read the reviews after purchasing while waiting for this to arrive- people weren't kidding this is a tiny pallet. The colors are beautiful and I love Mac so I will definitely keep this but I have no intention of repurchasing when it runs out.
I'm undecided if it was worth the money- will wait to see how much I love the colors on.
Beautiful matte colors
Kay from Vallejo, CA
Hesitated to buy this because I'm trying to utilize as much drugstore affordable items as I can, but couldn't find its equal. A splurge that's worth it.
ninel from armenia
the best Eye Shadow palette))))
More Bamboo Please?!
Selena from ABQ, NM
I love this palette for the fall. I especially love the top middle color, bamboo. I would buy this color in a heart beat if it was sold as a single!
Fantastic eyeshadow palette!!
Rae from Lubbock, Texas
Beautiful colors, highly pigmented, applied smoothly and eyes looked fabulous!
