She’s a Model Eyeshadow Palette is one of the many 9 shadow-options from MAC Cosmetics. This particular pocket-sized beauty belongs to their Fashion Pack limited edition collection. Although by this time, it is only available in several countries, I will share with you this review just in case you are considering the purchase of the palette in question.
I made a GIF. I am so proud.
She’s a Model Eyeshadow Palette Colours
The palette contains 9 mini eyeshadows (9×0,8g I paid €31.00 for it). There are some lovely mattes, satins and more frosty looking eyeshadows.
Although the green spots in my eyes are more enhanced with warm undertone eyeshadows, I wanted to have this palette so I could create more neutral makeup. Something suitable for an everyday look. I have decided to get it when it was discounted at Selfridges web shop #gooddeal.
Depending on where you got it the sequence of the eyeshadows in the pan may vary. So for my palette, starting from left side top row we have:
- Fresh Blade – veluxe pearl eyeshadow, shimmering metallic.
- Gilded Lids – satin finish.
- Sample Sized – frosty finish.
- Fab Accent – no-shine matte colour.
- Cool Complement – no-shine matte colour.
- Dance in the Dark – also matte.
- Big Attitude – frosty, shimmery finish.
- Not Basic Black – velvet shine finish.
- She’s a Model – veluxe pearl finish.
What to expect?
The swatches look very subtle on my hand. Not all the shades can be built up on the eyelid. The quality of the shadows is mostly satisfactory. But there are two bad apples in this basket. So let me point them out to you.
The yellow shade -Gilded Lids, after all these months is almost brand new. It is not just the fact that it is very difficult to pull off yellow eye look. It is a bad product. The awkward colour, poor pigmentation and lack of satin finish as MAC suggested.
The She’s a Model looks very appealing it the pan. But on the eyelids turns into grey looking shade. You have to dump the brush and tap the shadow if you want some colour and sparkles. In case you have any doubts the makeup look below was supposed to be a blue smokey eye.
The rest fo the shadows I use more often. I personally like to wear them as a wash of colour all over my eyelid. They do blend well together.
To wrap it up, I think this palette will not turn your beauty world upside down. But I do use it frequently due to the natural shades it offers. I do not exclude the possibility of getting myself different colour options from MAC’s pocket palettes in the future.
BTW, if you have any recommendation of good thickening mascaras let me know, please. Thank you! And till next time 😉
