It’s been a LONG time since I looked at my mac shadow palettes but when shopping for (what I always hope will be) another ‘ultimate’ palette recently I decided to revisit some old favourites.
Everytime I put together a selection, though, it seemed to be too few or too many to create the perfect combination. I had the 12 pan, the 4 and the 6 – enter, the NINE. I apprecate the irony that I was attempting to save some cash by using what I already had, only to spend money on an empty palette but I’m telling you, it was a must have!
I present to you, the ultimate palette – almost. It has every colour I need (as well as some fun non-neutrals) but the matte brown and black leave a lot to be desired. I’m not sure if they’re just old and need to be replaced or if they were never all that great but the effort to get a good swatch was crazy.
I tend to use them in lieu of liner with a wet brush anyway (setting spray does the trick) so it’s not a major deal breaker but worth mentioning. I’ve had Primark eyeshadows that packed a better punch!
I love a good throw back post and as I approach a major blogging milestone in the new year, I’m tempted to reach in to the old school idea bank more often. It was the golden age of blogging, after all 😉
