MAC Pro Palette Project - Month Seven

Hello everyone! I hope you're having a lovely weekend. The weather today is absolutely dismal, but fear not as I have a post to brighten your Sunday (at least I hope I do). After seven months of MAC treats I've completed my 15 Pro Palette! I feel like it's been a bit of an achievement to fill it in the time I have done, and with a bit of rearranging and colour coding - because I'm quite pernickety - the palette will take pride of place on my dressing table. These final three eyeshadows were bought with some of the money I received for my birthday so technically they're gifted. I figured I was so close to finishing that I just needed to purchase three eyeshadows instead of the monthly two. It seemed logical, right?

Here are the final three eyeshadows that complete the palette:

Blackberry is described as "muted burgundy-plum brown" and is a matte finish. It's not super pigmented but I really like this as a crease shade, or when used lightly, a transition shade in between the crease and brow bone for a taupe/purple eye look. I've also discovered that it goes surprisingly well with Amber Lights! It takes a little bit of work to blend, but the muted colour is worth it.

Sable is described as "gold-plum with bronze pearl" and is a frost finish. A wonderful shade that compliments brown eyes like mine, it's intense and unique. The coppery undertone means that it matches so well with Mythology (with Sable in the crease and under the eye). Ever since I received this shade there hasn't been a day when I haven't used it. The texture is so buttery and it provides just enough shimmer without being overbearing so it works well in a daytime look.

Mythology is simply described as "copper" and is a lustre finish. I'm so glad I took the plunge and opted for this shade as it's absolutely beautiful! The colour is pretty much a shimmery copper with rosy undertones (as you know I'm loving rose-gold hues at the moment, thanks UD Naked 3), and holds up very well on its own. I would like to think that this shade would look lovely on anyone, especially if you have olive skin or a nice tan! For a more intense colour, and to pick up those flecks of glitter, I recommend applying this shade with a damp brush to really pack on the colour.

And that's it! I hope you enjoyed this little project series. I've certainly had a lot of fun researching and purchasing products! I received another 15 pro palette and insert for Christmas so I'll be getting to work on that one soon. Is that something you guys would like to see? I would love to know!

  1. I'm quite sad I only just started reading these posts - I've just gone back and read the others! It's a great way to spread the cost of a mac palette and such a joy to read - plus, I love your pictures!

    3. I use a Nikon 1 J1 with the standard 30mm lens. I really want to upgrade to a proper professional camera like the Canon D650 but it's so expensive, and this camera seems to do the job fine for the moment! Thank you xxx

  11. I love these shades! I like how they go well together as well. I really want Blackberry, but it's a bit of a shade it's hard to blend. I find that with Fig.1 as well, it takes a lot of work. I don't know if that's just a general problem for MAC's matte eyeshadows?

    1. I think it might be like that with most MAC matte eyeshadows. I only own a few, but I do find them much harder to blend! Xx
