But onto the actual post!! My sister knows me so well, and she knows that I would never buy anything expensive for myself (I am such a bargain hunter, and I only every buy drugstore makeup). So she knew that I always wanted a MAC Palette and she decided to give me these shades! I absolutely love it and I am so excited to use it. I'm so glad she gave it to me before I went to digifest so I can try out and experiment different ways to use it!
So the shades on the top from left to right are Copperplate and Satin Taupe. And on the bottom row is Sketch and Naked. The top browns are a little darker than what I normally go for, but they are perfect for the days when I want to put a lot of effort in my makeup. The Copperplate is a matte brown colour which is perfect to use as a base. And the Satin Taupe is a beautiful shimmery brown rose gold kind of colour. These two are absolutely beautiful. I still haven't used them to their full ability, but practice makes perfect.

Now Sketch is definitely a shade I would have not chosen for myself but can't wait to try out. I think that this burgundy red will definitely go well with my dark brown eyes. I definitely need to practice to make sure I don't look like an absolute mess (as I am not use to how these products go on the eyes). And the Naked shade is probably going to be one of my favourites. It's perfect for highlighting the brow bone. But I will probably just use it all over my lid, to give me a really bright and awake look which you can see in the image below.
When I was trying them out, I found that they are very solid and it's somewhat hard to get it on my lid. This may have been due to my low quality brushes. I definitely need to invest in some new brushes including the MAC 217 which everyone seems to have and love.

Let me know what your favourite eyeshadows from MAC are. And leave some suggestions for some good eye brushes as I definitely need some new ones!!
Also, I would just like to say that I am going to be changing my schedule for my posts on this blog. I am currently 3 weeks away from my final exams for my first year at university (and I am doing Maths which is not easy) and writing a post every 2 days has been a challenge. So I have decided to instead post twice a week. I think I will post every Sunday and Thursday as I feel that these days will work best for me. But this is not set in stone. Once my exams are over, I will see if I want to change this new schedule. I hope you understand!
