Good morning everyone and welcome to one of these reviews that I have been most excited about this whole week.
Today I'm reviewing a pre-made MAC eyeshadow palette for you, called "Nine times Burgundy".
You probably guessed it, this palette is a palette that holds nine burgundy shades. This is the first time that I have seen the pre-made palettes and needless to say, I wanted one!
A palette like this is really great because the eyeshadows are smaller than regular ones. So you get a small palette with small eyeshadows, which to me would ben great if you're just starting out and you'd like to try MAC but you don't want to spend half of your paycheck.
I didn't realise I already owned a lot of eyeshadows in this palette. Popular shades like Honey Lust, Star Violet, Sketch, Antiqued are a part of this palette. There are a few mattes and a couple of shimmery shades, I really like this combination. The balance between light and dark shades is quite good too!
I don't like to admit it, but I had higher hopes for this palette. Alright, I've only used it a couple of times up until now and maybe I'll fall in love with it later, but right now I'm not impressed.
The look that I made was difficult to blend out and the fall out was immense. I understand with darker colours comes more fall out, but I feel like every colour in the palette left a stain. Maybe it was the combination that I chose.
Blending all these eyeshadows together was a bit difficult too. I'm not used to that from MAC.
Below you can see some more close-up looks. I'm not completely satisfied with how this turned out. But I'm willing to give this palette another shot and I'll let you know if my opinion changes.
Thanks for reading!
Have a lovely day!
