A Few New Discoveries & Oldies but Goodies from MAC

A few MAC single eye shadows I picked up recently

I have not been very good at getting blog posts out lately. I am moving into a new house in less than 7 days, so I have been super busy with packing up my current house and also preparing it for sale. Its so much work! But I’m very excited about moving. I have all kinds of ideas for the new house and think I’d like to share some of the renovating, decorating, and organizing ideas I have planned on my blog. Would you like to see that? Please leave me a comment if you’d be interested in some DIY retro-inspired home decorating type of posts.

In all of the chaos, I still have found time to get some new eye shadows from MAC. This is a quick post about four of the MAC eye shadow singles I’ve been enjoying recently.I picked up two refills of “oldies but goodies”, my favourites, Patina and Omega. I had hit pan on both of those. If you haven’t tried Patina, this is one of the MAC shadows that I think is a must-have. Described as a “Taupe brown w/golden pearl”, Patina is a frost finish. I love the finish. Its not “frosty” or glittery. It has the loveliest subtle sheen and blends so easily. This is one of my all time favs and I’ve hit pan on possibly even 4 or 5 of these.

I also picked up another Omega, which I’d also hit pan on. Omega is a “Soft muted beige-taupe” with a matte finish.

So much taupey goodness! I decided to also pick up a cute little MAC Custom Palette Eye Shadow X 2 just for Patina and Omega since I reach for them so much. I thought this would be perfect for traveling.

Don’t they look cute?

The two new discoveries were Sable and Cranberry. I really wanted to try out some more of the MAC frost finish eye shadows, since I love Patina so much. Sable is a “Gold-plum w/bronze pearl” and it is beautiful! I haven’t heard much about this shade and I think its been totally overlooked. Why are people not raving more about Sable?

Cranberry had been on my wish-list for ages. This is a fairly famous MAC shade. Its “Red-plum with pink shimmer” and is also a frost finish. I was not disappointed! This shade is surprisingly wearable.

Here are all four shades swatched:

I love that MAC has reduced the price of their Pro Palette Refill Pans. They’re now only $6 CAD each. Its really tempting to want to fill up lots and lots of palettes with more MAC shadows.

If you have a favourite, under-rated MAC shade, I’d love to hear what it is!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Cranberry is soooo pretty my gosh. Saddle is my all time favorite from MAC! A while ago I purchased a shadow from MAC called “I Like 2 Watch.” Literally the creepies name ever but it’s soooo pretty!


  2. Patina is one of my all time favourites and I hit pan on that too! I don’t consider it too frosty, it’s SO pretty!
    Sable is a lovely shade too – so smooth and versatile.
    Enjoy your new (and old) goodies!
    I’ve posted my top 10 MAC eye shadows before but ones you should check out are Satin Taupe, Woodwink, All That Glitters and Wedge. πŸ™‚


  3. Cranberry has been an old fav of mine but sable looks so fine! πŸ™‚
