MAC WARM NEUTRALS PALETTE | A REVIEW

Warm toned eyeshadows are my favourite. I have an obscene amount but this handy palette from MAC houses fifteen pretty shades in one very convenient palette, making the eyeshadows in it some of my most used as it comes everywhere with me.

The palette costs £65.00 which  does initially sound pretty steep, however, when you consider that a single pan costs £10.00, you're getting £150.00 in eyeshadows alone, then of course,  you'd have to buy the palette if you were making a custom one. So, £65.00 doesn't seem all that expensive once you put it into perspective and to soften the blow further, there isn't a single dud shade in the palette.

The palette contains mostly shimmers but there are a couple of matte shades thrown in there for good measure. Some of the shadows are part of the permanent line and some are palette exclusives.

Each eyeshadow is silky soft and easily blendable. When pared with a primer, such as Urban Decay's Primer Potion, the shadows have great lasting power and minimal, if any, fall out.

As the eyeshadows are all warm toned, you could pair the majority of them together and so it's easy to create any number of different combinations, even for an eyeshadow novice.


The top line of the palette comprises of Hey, Warm Breeze, Gingersnap, Dark Brew and Dance In The Dark. My personal favourite from this row is Ginger Snap as I love a good coppery shade. I also really like that there isn't a black to be seen in the entire palette and Dance In The Dark is the perfect compromise to this. (You can read more on my dislike of black eyeshadows here.)


The middle row is my favourite row of the palette. It has the shadows Brule, Vanilla Extract, Honey Lust, Amber Lights and Saddle, and is my favourite row of the palette. Amber Lights has always been my favourite MAC eyeshadow. It was the first one I ever bought, and I have picked up another single pan since, so having one in this palette is very handy also. Honey Lust is also a favourite.


The final row is home to Lemon Tart, Creative Copper, Butter Fudge, Divine Decadence and Unwind.  It won't come as a surprise to anyone that Creative Copper is my favourite, but I also love Unwind which is similar to Sumptuous Olive, another favourite shade of mine, but with a little more gold and a little less green.

I think that for any warm neutral shadow lover, this palette is a must. It would be a great one to have as part of an artist's kit too and I have had it used on me during MAC makeovers a number of times.

Do you own any MAC palettes and have you tried the Warm Neutrals Palette? What are your thoughts?
