MAC Temting, Expensive Pink, Satin Taupe, Mulch, Cranberry

I got Expensive Pink, Satin Taupe, Mulch, Cranberry in March. I knew I have been lazy lately, but didn't know I was THIS lazy.

To start off, I would like to show my favourite MAC eyeshadows.

Retrospeck, Soba, Woodwinked

These are the shadows I reach without thinking or planning. Basic skin coloured Soba on all over lead, shimmery light coloured Retrospeck on the inner third of eye, and bronzy Woodwinked on the outer third of eye. This is really easy and quick way to do eye makeup for everyday, even in summer, and I thought I need more colours to expand this routine.

Tempting, Mulch, Satin Taupe

So I got Tempting, Mulch, and Satin Taupe. Tempting is a basic brown colour on me, with little less shimmer than Woodwinked. Could be described as classic warm toned brown. Mulch is somewhat similar colour except that this one is a lot less showing its colour. It is more lightly pigmented, and of course less impact if I apply this on the edge of my eyes.  That means I can blend Mulch with other warm toned colours other than brown, just to give the  colour a depth. Satin Taupe, on the other hand, is  cool toned brown. I have Maybelline Color Tattoo Bad to the Bronze, so I knew cool brown wouldn't harm me on my eyes. This one actually is becoming one of my favourite colours. It is very easy to  apply on the crease area and blend it out. Satin Taupe shows brown more boldly, compare to Mulch and Tempting on my skin. It is good thing since I wear glasses and need more definition of my eyes.

The light in previous two pictures are different, so I took this full shot of all the shadows for comparison.

Expensive Pink, Cranberry
These two are first none-brown shadow purchase from MAC. I got a recombination on these shades because they are kind of spring colours, and easily blendable with Mulch and Satin Taupe. I paired Expensive Pink - Mulch. This combination is kind of classic everyday makeup for warm toned person. Warmy peach pink shade blended with light brown, this match is good for the occasion like first time meeting your mother-in-law-to-be. Then I paired Cranberry with Satin Taupe. Kind of classic, eh? This pair apparently is becoming one of none-thinking eye makeups. If I need to out for grocery shopping, meeting friends for lunch, whatever occasion, I reach these and get ready.
