MAC Eyeshadow x 15 Warm Neutral

MAC Eye Shadow x 15 Warm Neutral is part of the new permanent Eyes On MAC collection which includes this palette, a Cool Neutral x 15 Palette and four Eye Shadow x 9 Palettes.

Each palette contains colors that compliment one another in a wide variety of finishes. Warm Neutral is probably the 1 pick I would actually purchase out of these choices. There are so many gorgeous colors in it!

I found the pigmentation overall to be pretty good over a primer. Dark Brew and Dancing in the Dark were the only mattes that looked uneven and I had to swatch them a few times to get the payoff I did. A few of the lighter shades are very light but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The metallic and shimmery shades definitely were the most intense ones and the ones I liked the most. I think this is a really good palette if you don’t already have 1,000 neutral eyeshadows. A good mix of mattes, shimmers, glitters and metallics, and nice selection of shades from light to dark. You could create a million looks with this from daytime to smoky nighttime ones.

If I am being 100% honest with you though, I feel like the Urban Decay Naked and Too Faced palettes trump this one a bit. Their eyeshadows are just a better quality overall and it’s rare I have any pigmentation issues with them.

You can find this at Nordstrom or the MAC website and and it’s $85.00 (a $160.00 value).

What do you think about this palette? Are you burned out on neutrals yet?
