MAC Peacocky Haul & Review ~! ♥

Photobucket
I got these eyeshadows a few weeks ago, and I've only found time to blog about them now! I love these MAC Peacocky eyeshadows. They have such silky buttery textures with amazing colour pay off. They are a lot like MAC Veluxe Pearls to the touch. I found myself drawn to a lot of colours, especially the light colours, neutrals and greys (not so much the loud colours as I hardly wear them). I walked away from the counter with these four:
Tweet Me, Dalliance, Top of the Posh and Prance.

Tweet Me is a light peach-gold duochrome. It is similar to Melon pigment, and it is a shade lighter than Expensive Pink eyeshadow.

Dalliance is a light greenish gold colour. It is very bright and shimmery.

Top of the Posh is a beautiful light pink colour with a gold duochrome.

Prance is a light neutral-taupe colour. Also beautiful!

I picked up only the lighter colours because I feel they are more versatile for every day/night out looks. If I had any more money to spare, I would also pick up Unflappable (dark grey-purple), Centre Stage (dark brown) and Spectacle of Yourself (dark reddish-brown).

The only thing I don't like about these eyeshadows is the large size and the larger price tag compared to the standard MAC eyeshadows. I'm sure I will not be able to finish a single one, and I would much prefer it if they were in smaller pans to fit my palette!


Here are swatches..

What do you think? Did you pick up anything from this collection?

  1. great picks! completely agree, while the peacock range is aimed at being bold and vibrant, i found the neutral colors more universal and flattering. love the new 'creamy-er' formula. x
