My new eyeshadow palette from MAC just came in. I wasn’t expecting the palette to be so small considering the price I paid for it in relation to the Anastasia Beverly Hills palette. I also wasn’t expecting the colors to be so beige. This palette is called ‘Amber Times Nine’ and is a neutral palette with no hint of pink or orange to it except for one color. The top three colors are in the beige range. The top left color would be more of a matte olive neutral, the top middle would be a neutral shimmer, and the top right a good matte beige primer. The middle row has two beautiful golden yellow colors, one as a shimmer and the other a matte shade. Then there’s the bottom row with two gorgeous shimmery colors in a metallic dusty rose gold shade and the other a metallic dark brown with a hint of green in it. With that said, there’s definitely room in this palette to create everyday looks for the summer, for fall, and for other special occasions like date night or weddings. Also this little guy is the size of a compact so it’s perfect for traveling.
Would I recommend paying full retail price for this palette or even with a 15% off discount? Hmmm…maybe not. This palette is very neutral and beige so I would recommend trying the ‘Solar Glow’ instead with more pinks and purples. My thought is if I want neutral colors, I’ll buy the e.l.f. ‘Need It Nude’ palette for only $10. Anyways, I still like the palette. The colors are beautiful, but the price expensive.
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! Thank you for stopping by and reading my posts!
