Beauty Heroes: MAC’s Gorgeous New Palettes

Stop what you’re doing, beauty hoarders. There is a new MAC palette on shelves and you’re about to fall head over heels in love. If, like us, your counter tops are awash with unused quads and duos, with only one shade here and there that you actually like, and you’re keen to reduce what’s in your make-up bag to a select few key items that will always work, this is the 9 (or 15) piece palette you’ve been dreaming of. Hallelujah!

Whether you want a quick easy eye with naturally enhancing hues or you want to go hell for leather with a dark burgundy smokey eye, you’ll be spoiled for choice with these carefully curated palettes. Each one has been edited to feature a wave of colour-coordinated shades that offer countless combinations. The only trouble you’ll have is choosing what combination of shades you want on what day of the week.

What we also adore about these palettes is that they offer a selection of matte, satin and frosted shadows, allowing for chic looks by day and more dramatic looks by night. What more could you want?

We know Christmas is way off yet, but these are going top of our list. And who says we can’t treat ourselves to a pre-Christmas Christmas present in… July?

See below for lustworthy colour combinations.
