MAC Pro Palette Project - Month Six

Hello all! I hope you're well. The holidays are edging ever closer; I can't quite believe that Christmas is less than two weeks away! Be sure to stick around because I have tons planned for the blog throughout the next few weeks, and I'm sure we can all use a bit of light reading to ebb away the stress of Christmas shopping! I have to say that I've waited so long to add these particular two eyeshadows to my palette and just figured this festive month was a pretty apt time to purchase them. So without any more chit-chat, here is your December instalment of my MAC Pro Palette Project!

Goldmine is described by MAC as "intense gold with shimmer" and is a frost finish. It has to be one of the most pigmented shades in my 15 palette, and is a real joy to apply to the eyes. I absolutely love it, even just looking at it in the pan makes me feel festive! I'm planning on pairing it with Woodwinked in the crease and Naked Lunch in the inner corners to create a smokey eye with amped up glitz for my work's Christmas party on Sunday night - I can't wait to see the results of that one! It also looks great with Amber Lights. Not just one for this time of year however, I'm looking forward to using Goldmine on its own with winged eyeliner when I've got a bit of a tan in the Summer.

Plum Dressing is described by MAC as "pinky-plum with metal" and is a veluxe pearl finish. Carrying on with my obsession with plum colours for Winter, this shade is a lovely addition to my MAC family. In comparison to Goldmine it is definitely not as pigmented when applied to the eyes (the swatch above took me a good few goes to get that heavy colour). It's more of a wash of colour on the lids, but I quite like that as it definitely zests up my usual neutrals routine for work. I really like to pair this shade with Sketch and/or Cranberry. They both work great!

As an experiment I tried using these two new additions together, basically expecting nothing. But I found that using Goldmine as a base with Plum Dressing in the crease creates a subtle pink sunset effect, which was a pleasant surprise! It's taught me that experimentation is a good thing, for sure.


  1. Great vibrant colours, could be used to create a Carnival look, xoxo.
