Pan Palette Preferences

The other day I popped to the Metrocentre in Gateshead, near Newcastle on the premise of purchasing an iPad. Well said iPad didn't happen, but a Mac Pro Pan Palette (£11.50 from MAC counters) did instead, oops! I have been eyeing up starting my own palette for ages, and while the more affordable Fashionista and Front Cover (and I am sure many more brands too) all offer their own 'DIY' palettes, there's something more exciting to me about having 15 whole pan spaces to fill up with my own pic 'n' mix. And, of course, it's MAC - only the best, eh?

How lost do my two teeny tiny pans look! At £10 a pop, this whole palette will have cost me £161.50 by the time I manage to fill up all of the spaces, but I plan on placing a few hints for colours onto my Christmas list this year, and being extra good and pointing the bf in the right direction in House of Fraser towards the MAC counter! So, as you can see, I currently have 'Patina' in the top left hand corner, and 'Nylon' situated right next to it. I am also liking the look of these four colours:

L-R: Satin Taupe, Tilt, Aquadesiac, Sweet Lust (Images taken from here.)

I love the fact that each pan is magnetised so there's no danger of the colours falling out if their spaces, and each simple slots into the space comfortably. There's also a little groove under each space to let you remove the pan and pop in another one should you want to. An all round perfect customisable palette in my opinion!

So what are your favourite MAC eyeshadow colours? Which ones can you recommend to me for my palette? (I am a blue eyed girl by the way!) Let me know your thoughts below.

(I apologise for the blurriness of the photos. I really want my Nikon back!)


  1. I would love to make a MAC palette but I also
    worked out how much it would cost to fill it and eh :/

    1. I thought about that too, but if you buy a pan here and there the build up of the money doesn't seem so much as it would if you filled it all up in one go! x

  2. I'm trying to fill up my MAC palette, it's taken forever. I'm loving Expensive Pink lately it's such a gorgeous shade xx

    1. It's so much fun picking out shades isn't it! I shall have to check that one out, it sounds like my kind of colour :-) x


I read and appreciate every single comment that you write :-) Thank-you for taking the time to stop by and write me a note Louise xx
