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.

I love all of the colors in this kit. I have gray eyes, and these are the perfect colors to highlight them for both every day wear and those times I want to glam it up a bit. I actually found a video online that helped me to achieve different looks with this exact palette. I really like the combination of matte & shimmer shadows. I have several of the colors in individual shadows (sadly MAC doesn't sell them all individually), but when I travel, this is the perfect addition to my makeup bag to keep it as small as possible. I love this so much, I just ordered two more.
Can't go wrong with MAC

The shadows are great but they apply a lot darker than they appear so you have to apply gently and only add a little to brush at a time.
Mac needs a Purple/Violet Palette!!!!

And more true pink blushes!
Perfect purplish pink shades

I have been wanting to wear more yet shadow. Because I have been wearing a natural make up my entire life. Nina was awesome helping me at the store discover this color palette gem. I love purple and pink but want it to be subtle not loud
The colors are not as advertised
JPMC from Indiana
As per a lot of other reviewers, the colors are not at all what is shown when ordering.
There are only 4 mattes, which is what I prefer. The rest are shimmery colors.
Also, I didn't realize how small the pallet is lol.
I was planning on purchasing them all, but not now. Not sure yet if I'm going to return it. But I'm totally bummed.
K Cribbs from Arizona
I have green eyes and mixing these colors make my eyes pop.
Just as other reviewers say
Hailey from Chicago
Colors are not accurately pictured just as other reviewers say. There are 5 shimmers and 4 matte shadows. I still enjoy it but first time I've bought from Mac and not impressed with the false advertising. Also extremely small pallet!! Definitely over priced. Smaller than your hand. Would definitely go for a morphe pallet get more for the same price.
Colors not accurately pictured
Disappointed from Los Angeles
This appears to be a matte collection of burgundy, but not a single color looks like the pictures. I'll describe the true colors top left to bottom right-champagne shimmer, tan matte, lavender matte, copper shimmer, brown matte, black w/ gold shimmer, dusty mauve (the ONLY color I use), pink/copper shimmer, very dark purple shimmer. I wish I could add a picture but I don't see the ability to do that. So disappointed!! I was really looking forward to this collection because the colors pictured are so pretty
Geri from Savannah GA
I personally do not want/care for frost type colors and this was advertised as matte colors. I did my best to enlarge the pic and it did look as if it was truly all matte… I wasn't happy when I received it to find many frosted colors.
Not what it's like in the picture...
Alli from Detroit, MI
I got this as a gift, and the person I gave it to likes it! However, even though all the eyeshadows look matte in the pictures some of them are glittery. It's also very small for the price. I'd recommend looking at reviews of this product, or really any product before you buy it so that you know what it's like. But at the end of the day, this is your money and you can do whatever you would like with it.
Pretty, but not like the photos
Caroline from PA
This palette is really pretty and pigmented, but the colors read less pink and more purple/mauve than the photos. Also make sure to look at the description for which of the shades are shimmers since the photo shows all mattes
kate from Indianapolis
The actual palette does NOT AT ALL match the picture. The actual shadows are brown in hue and not at all burgandy or rose hued as shown in the pictures. I am extremely disappointed. Also the palette is tiny. Not worth the price.
Theresa from Pennsylvania
Love these colors. There are a lot of varieties to use here- mix and match. I get a lot of compliments when I wear these shades. Love MAC❤️
Waste of money
Renee from Fresno ca
No color payoff it just sits in my drawer collecting dust now
love this palette
meli from SoCal
It has been a while since I tried this brand and wow, it is absolutely beautiful! The pigmentation is on point and buttery. The looks I have done are stunning and I am so happy with this purchase even though the pans are quite small, they do pack a punch.
These are NOT burgundy :(
Tessa from Pittsburgh
I was really excited to try this pallet out. I just got into buying better/expensive make up. I ordered this pallet because of the color and how these colors look with my hazel eyes.. well this pallet is not what is pictured. It looks similar to the picture, but wears brown. Debating on returning for the price. Believe the other comments about color and shimmer/matte blending.
Shimmers and Satins are a Joke
nthomas from Atlanta, GA
The matters in this palette blended beautifully, but the shimmers and satins were AWFUL. The cost makes it a no buy.
I would buy this product again and agin
Annie from FL
Pigmented and stayed long as I needed
Allison from Kentucky
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
Partypatt from So. Jordan, Utah
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.
Leelee from Salt Lake City
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.
