Well, I saw it today and it’s more like (HUGE BLOODY LACK OF) Style Warriors. I mean, really now MAC – it’s been about 3 years (in my humble opinion) since your company has released a spectacular color story. Get on the creative train, people! The eye shadows were garish and chalky, the lip colors were garish and unwearable, and the bronzers were pure orange. Sheesh. I forgot my B2M (I was going to get Patina eye shadow), so all I ended up with is the famed 224. This damn brush better be life-changing.
So, moral of Joey’s story is: MAC needs to step their game up, for real. I used to be known on MUA for my love of all things MAC. Now I’m just the chick on MUA who screams “DO NOT BUY!!!” every time someone asks for a MAC recommendation. Meh.
So does this sad sob story have a point? YES. After that ill-fated trip to WAC (a M upside down is a W, and honestly, MAC really is wack at this point…), I ventured into a Sephora and lo and behold I saw this gorgeous gem of an eye shadow palette:
I apologize for the stupid glare on the eye shadow. This gorgeous gem of a palette (called Sahara Sun Eye Mosaic) is from the Laura Mercier summer collection, Moroccan something or another. Who cares about semantics when the product is THIS lovely?
I mean, just look at the swatches! :
Starting from the top, we have a gorgeous orangey-bronze, a pretty champagne-gold, a simply stunning rose color, and a dramatic khaki green. They’re all silky smooth and shimmery and RIDICULOUSLY PIGMENTED, people! These colors are definitely for those who prefer a warmer-toned eye shadow (the top color does seem like it would be hard to pull off for those who are cool).
For those who are cooler-toned, there’s an equally gorgeous blue version of this palette that I think I may also need.
This palette costs $35 and honestly is worth every cent. I cannot wait to figure out all the pretty looks I can do with this thing!
