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.

The colors are beautiful but I thought I received the wrong palette because the colors are not dusty rose as shown. The colors are beautiful and I love the Mac shadows, but the received palette colors are in the tan- brown family and don't look like what is pictured at all. I don't understand why they look nothing like the pictured colors...
Picture is deceiving - VERY SMALL
Kathy W from Rochester, NY
I can't comment on the product itself yet because I have not used it, but I was expecting this to be like a bunch of other pallets from various other brands that I have tried. Those are 4 inches x 4 inches in size. This one is only about 2.5 inches x 2.5 inches. Even with the sale price, had I realized just how small this is I would never have purchased it. Also the colors do not look anything like the picture. Much more brown/beige - none of the colors are in the rose family.
Gatesse from Nashville,TN
I'm confused by any negative review of this palette. These colors are beautiful especially on pale neutral skin. Even the least experienced makeup person can easily do 3 different looks by row. The colors blend to perfection. This is my first MAC product ever and I'm kind of regretting all the years I bought other brands
Eyeshadow X 9 is a friend of mine!

Best eyeshadow pallet I have tried in years. No flakes!
NewMacLoverCES from Zimmerman MN
I am disappointed because I thought this would be much more rose in color. Does not look like the picture. It is very nude. I wanted Rodney colors not nude. That said, it's still beautiful and blends beautifully.
Save ur money!
Ellie from Jersey
The mattes in this palette is super chalky and the shimmers have no pigment and the color scheme isn't even rosy looking
Not what I wanted
Jen from IN
First of all, the size is so tiny, not worth half the money I paid. Second, the colors are NOT what the pic shows. Very disappointed and I wish I had read the reviews.
Linda from Cleveland
My absolutely favorite eyeshadows. Very easy to blend. Barely any fall out. Best eyeshadow I've ever tried
MAC is Awesome!
AJ from Banning,CA
I love MAC and the colors are so pretty.
JennH from Virginia
The pallet is super small so it is an absolute rip off for the price. Not very pigmented. All of the colors have a very brown undertone.
Love the colors not the formula
Liv from Philadelphia
If you are looking for a pinky beautiful smoky eye, this is a palette with the perfect colors. However, I have to dig in and layer to get any payout. I'll keep it because these colors are hard to find, but I'm not overjoyed about it.
These colors are nothing like the picture on the internet
missmillie from chattanooga, tn
This set looks nothing like the internet and the colors are not my colors at all
If it wasn't such a hassle with the virus and holidays I would have returned them!
I love the colors on the internet and was eager to get them because they are the best for my skin coloring and eye but what I got wasn't even close
Doesn't look like the picture!
Julie from Schaumburg IL
I was so disappointed with this palate, doesn't look like on the picture. Nothing Rose about it at all. Eyeshadows look beige and brown and 4 with shimmer and on one of the shadow, looks like a line, like someone stuck their nail in it. I'm glad I opened it and looked, because it was a present to someone. Now I have to deal with returns and I've got like 3-4 days. The only good thing was is it was shipped right away and I got it the next day.

The colors are not rose anything
Super Small & Brown
Samantha from Sacramento, CA
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
