My MAC Eyeshadow Palettes: Light Neutrals


I’ve had a lot of requests over the last year to do an updated MAC palette overview, so I thought I would do a little series!  I love peeking at other people’s MAC palettes, the colors they have and the way they organize them, it’s been a weird fascination of mine ever since I discovered the blogging world.

Back when I started wearing makeup, MAC was the first brand I really got into.  I loved that it offered such a variety of products and shade options, and I instantly fell in love with the eyeshadows – especially all of the fun, limited edition collections!  I use my MAC eyeshadows more than any other brands (except maybe Urban Decay), so I’ve built up a pretty solid stash over the years.  Here is a look at my light neutrals palette! 


I have a lot of favorites in this palette.  I alternate between Phloof! (cool), Shroom (neutral), and Nylon (warm) for shimmery highlight shades, as well as Blanc Type for a matte highlight.  I love Naked Lunch, Jeté , and All That Glitters for frosty all-over lid colors – I’ve gone through several of Naked Lunch and ATG over the years and they remain some of my favorite eyeshadows ever.  Grain is also wonderful for a neutral lid color.

If you aren’t familiar with the MAC palette system, you can magnetically store eyeshadows and blushes inside these palettes to create a custom selection of your own.  MAC stores sell the eyeshadows in pan form already, but you can also depot anything you have in plastic casing and stick a magnet on the back.  The palettes are sold in two parts, the overall palette case and the inserts customized for the product you’re using (in this case, the 15-pan eyeshadow insert).  I find that this method of storing saves a lot of space and c’mon, it’s just plain pretty to look at!  Do you have any light neutral favorites from MAC?

    Two of my favorites are in there, Shroom and Woodwinked (so much love for those two). I really need to pick up Mythology, it’s such a pretty shade x


  • Deepti @ Endless Postcards

    Woodwinked and All That Glitters are definitely some of my two favorites from MAC! I’ve been eying Shroom for a while but I have a ridiculous amount of highlight shades so I might have to hold off.

  • Maggie

    All that glitters is such a cult favorite now! Love this idea for a post!

  • Annabel

    All these shades are just so wearable, I bet they look lovely on. Style Snob looks particularly nice!

    Ricepaper was my first MAC eyeshadow, if I recall correctly. I still have it and use it for a satin-y highlight.

    I like the selection you have here! Well, what’s not to like? :)

  • nueyork

    I’ve heard so much about most of these shadows! All of the shades are beautiful.

    ATG is also one of my favorite eyeshadows, it’s perfect for lazy makeup days. Woodwinked used to be my number one for a long time just because I remember it was my first ever MAC eyeshadow so it holds a special place in my heart haha :) x
