Eyeshadow is probably one of the least-used items in my makeup collection, but one thing I just love, all the same! I have TONS of them. And lots of them are MAC – they are the best, right?
When I do eyeshadow, I tend to go for one of two or three different looks – a smokey eye, a glittery cream, or a bold, bright colour. I adore greens and blues, and the new MAC Eyes x 9 Palette in Tropic Cool Times Nine is perfect for me.
The nine shades are Fresh Blade pale frosted yellow (veluxe pearl), Bright-sided canary yellow (satin), Lemon Rush bright yellow lime green (matte), Lady Grey soft muted grey-green (satin), Neoprene Green kelly green with pearl (veluxe pearl), She’s A Model blackened teal with pearl (lustre), Liquid Sky cerulean blue (matte), Blue Envy frosty royal blue (veluxe pearl) and Grey Horizon deep blue grey (matte)
I love this palette, particularly for summer. There are now four new Eyes x 9 palettes to choose from, making six in total – this one, Semi Sweet Times Nine, which is full of gorgeous pinks, Solar Glow Times Nine, which is lots of frosty, metallic, shades, Amber Times Nine – peaches, oranges and more, Red Hot Times Nine, with reds, pinks, and a bold yellow, and Burgundy Times Nine, with deep plums, black and browns
There are also two Eyes x 15 palettes – Warm Neutral and In The Flesh – these are amazing, totally portable, and feature all the eye colours you’d ever need.
Eyes x 9 Palettes, £25, and Eyes x 15 Palettes, £49.50, are available from April 27 at MAC locations nationwide, and maccosmetics.co.uk. The Tropic Cool Times Nine and Red Hot Times Nine are both Limited Edition.
