Let's Start a Pro Palette | Mac Haul

If you read my What I Got For Christmas post, you'd know I received a Mac gift card from my in-laws. I deliberated on which products I wanted to pick up for a long time, because Mac is so expensive for me. I had never owned any of the iconic Mac eyeshadows before, and thought this was the perfect opportunity to pick some up.

I decided to start a pro palette, so I bought the large pro palette along with the 15 pan eyeshadow insert. I picked up four shades to start; charcoal brown, nylon, amber lights, and all that glitters. I chose these shades because I knew I would get a lot of use out of them.

[L-R: charcoal brown, nylon, amber lights, all that glitters]

Charcoal Brown is the perfect matte taupe brown. I love using this shade in the crease, and it is also a great match for my brows.

Nylon is a frosty super pale gold shade. This looks great on my skintone as a browbone and inner corner highlight.

Amber Lights is a warm eyeshadow lovers dream! I wish I had picked this shade up sooner.

All That Glitters is a shimmery beige pink with gold glitter that looks great all over the lid for an everyday makeup look.

I've now used these shadows a few times and really like them! I do have others that I like more, such as my Urban Decay ones. However, because I chose shades that I would use on an everyday basis, and the pro palette is so convenient, I will continue to use these. Also, I hope to pick up more in the future, the goal is to eventually fill the 15 pans. 

What are you're favourite Mac eyeshadows?

  1. Gorgeous colours! I haven't tried any single Mac eyeshadows, but Nylon and Charcoal Brown look right up my alley!

    1. Those shades really are staples! I can't believe I hadn't tried them before now.

  2. I need to get this and start making up my own custom shades to put in! I'm loving matte formulas at the moment <3
