Oh MAC how you get me every single time with your eye shadows. As much as I try to move into using other brands eye shadows I always come running back to MAC. Why do I love MAC shadows so much - the pigmentation, the longevity, the value for money and the colour selection (to name a few reasons why I love them so much). However I've only ever used up two of their shadows (All That Glitters and Satin Taupe) and as you can see I'm finding it a struggle to use some of my other shades up. MAC have recently released three palettes consisting of nine mini shadows of some of their best shades and also new shades.

As I own most of the shadows in the Amber and Burgundy palettes, and I'm not keen on Purple shadows, I decided to buy their Navy palette which ended up being £19.50 with my Pro-Card. The palette contains a mixture of matte, satin and frost finishes, which means you get the best of all types of MAC shadows. Out of the nine shades in the palette, I already own Copperplate and Club, however for travel I don't mind duplicates, especially how Copperplate is a fab shade for your brows. 

Shades in the palette include Club, Copperplate, Silver Fox, Blonde Mink, JG Grey, Mulled Over, Cast Iron, Cloudscape, Black Tied. Personally my favourites are Blonde Mink, Mulled Over and Cloudscape. Personally I think MAC need to release more palettes or customised palettes of these smaller pan sizes. Apart from the fact it'll be easier for travel, but also there's more chance of hitting pan. Are you a fan of any of the MAC palettes, or do you prefer full sized products?
