Most Helpful Positive Review These colors are great for a night out: even for dressing up
I love the Mac girls cutie palette! I was first intimidated by the dark colors, but when I first used them, they were so easy to apply. The lighter ones I use during the day, and the dark shimmering ones I love to use at night with just a light application. The effect is stunning!! I'm not sure why this palette got less stars. It's my favorite!
Most Helpful Critical Review Such a disappointment
I was so disappointed by this palette. The colors are lovely in the case but when I applied them there was just nothing there. Even a damp brush didn't help. I love MAC, but this one is a definite misfire. I'll try it with a dark base and see if I can get anything, but I'm not too hopeful. I did mark it as good for work because if you can get it to show up it would make a nice subdued look for the office. I will admit that my skin is fair, so that may have had something to do with it. I also finally tried Raver Girl, with similar results, so I'll review it as well.

Jeulia from Montgomery, AL
This palette has next to NO pigment. I tried the shadows with three different primers, including one that is designed to make less-pigmented shadows show up better. They still looked incredibly sheer. Even the darker shades show up very light. And I had to GRIND a brush into the pan just to get anything up. The colors are so pretty in the palette so it is super disappointing that they don't show up that way.
Dont waste your money
Honeycomb from Stockton CA
Literally no pigmentation whatsoever. Drugstore makeup has better quality. I expected something....not, nothing. I can't blend , its chalky. Im so upset i Wasted money on this. Literally wouldn't gift my purchase. im just going to return!
Sheila O from Shreveport
Not good at all! Very disappointing. No pigment and very hard to blend. Would pass in this.
FannyGo from Gurnee, IL
I got this as a gift and loved the packaging and how it looked like. However, when I tried to use it, I was so disappointed. There was zero pigmentation. Some glitter showed in my eyelid when applying with my finger, but didn't last long. Don't waste your time.
not what I expected
lori from nj
the highlighter is subtle but buildable, not what I expected though. and the eyeshadows are hit and miss, some work great and are very pigmented while others are not pigmented at all and no matter what primer I use or even without primer cant get them to work well for me
This is a amazing product!!! Great pigmented shadows!
Melina the avocado from Alta loma Ca
Great eyeshadows and amazing highlighter!! Totally recommend!
Not the best for a brand like MAC
Reira from Midwest
Seems to be hit and miss depending on the eyeshadow pan. Quality is not consistent enough to justify the current price. Only purchase if it goes on sale.
PASS ON THIS ONE
Stephanie from Boise
Super regrettable purchase. These colors do not last more than an hour and they just bleed everywhere. Super chalky, no pigment, massive fallout - PASS ON THIS ONE
Anning in Love from Orange County, California
Pass on this please. No pigment and worse than a cheap drug store palette. I own well over 50 high end palettes and several drug store palettes. This is the worst palette of all of them. MAC use to be the best brand but somehow they lost their quality.
not what's pictured, not pigmented
cynthia from sacramento
So dissapointing. The color pay off is not good and that's that i am using mac painterly paint pot i am using their primer and there is little to no color pay off. also the pallette is a lot more cool toned then the image makes it seem. very dissapointing.
Use with glitter primer
Andrea from Orlando
The product is great if used with glitter primer.
Chalky and makes a mess
Emme from Johnstown PA
Beautiful colors, until they leave the palette. I wanted some light colors for days I didn't want to go all our but didn't want to stay with total neutrals.
Before I could even get it on my eyes it made a mess in the pallet. It's chalky and made a dusty mess. I'm all for light colors, but this has barely any pigment, even with an eyeshadow primer. Skip this one.

not the usual great product I expect from mac
You have to know how to use it & get beautiful results
Rachel_rebel_makeup from California
The people saying there's no pigment are doing it wrong. The satins do have pigment and show up on me. I am medium/tan. The shimmery glittery shades, all you need is to put down a glitter glue like the one from nyx and the shimmers last all day and night. I get tons of compliments when I wear this. It's a purple pastel glitter lover's dream. Too bad it has such negative reviews.
I love it I would definitely buy again
Janet from Des Moines, IA
I love all the colors and that it stays on all day!
MAC delivered once again!
Sandy from LA
Loved the light lavenders and pinks mixed with champagne. Hard to find pallets with this color scheme. I'm an Urban Decay junkie but I'm glad I ventured out this time!! Great formula delivers beautiful spring looks that last all day without fading!!
It's just, ok
AvEo from United States of freaking America
A couple of the glitters are amazing! But the rest of the colors are chalky and don't blend well, and also aren't that pigmented. But these are my personal opinions
I do not recommend
Pam from Reno
Tried to this product a few times to give each color a chance. The shadows are very disappointing. Barely lasted 2-3 hours even with a primer. The highlighters are nice though.
Manda from Utah
Love this palette, I would 100% purchase again but don't think it's worth full price (I got on sale) the shimmer shades are my favorite ones but def use a a primer or even a glitter primer. Some of the matters are a little trickier to blend and I wanted to love the highlighter but that's why I deducted a star it didn't shimmer the way it did in the pan on my skin.
Too much fall-out
LKTatter from CO
I love the colors in this palette, but unless you like glitter on your face (and I mean ALL over your face), stay away. There is so much fall out from the glitter shades that I can't use it. I've tried a wet brush, a dry brush and even my finger and there is just glitter...everywhere! The matte shades aren't pigmented enough to even bother putting on. Save your money on this one.
bumblebeejmt from new york
mac is usually a great brand but this palette was lacking a little bit. the shades blended pretty well but the shimmers were hard to work with. i would however recommend because it was a fairly good palette
Not worth it
PJ from Reno
Was really excited for this palette but unfortunately the other reviews are true- not well pigmented l, doesn't last and even with a primer colors barely show up. Ended up returning it. Colors were so pretty so it made me sad :(
Please Read Before Purchasing!!!!!
Nicole from IA
I normally really love MAC products, however, I was disappointed with this palette. Don't get me wrong, the color scheme is stunning and at first glance, this palette looks perfect. However, the pigment and chalkiness really disappointed me. Swatches came out uneven and patchy, and even with a primer, I couldn't get much color payoff.
However, because I did get SOME color out of it, I WOULD recommend this to anyone new to makeup to play around with. Hope this helps!!!!!
Holly from Prattville, AL
Looks great with my brown eyes! Cheaper than Too Faced Chocolate Bar that has the same color scheme.
absolutely not buy again
