Project’s Recap so far…

You have no idea how much I enjoyed putting makeup on this week after a 2-week hiatus!!! I’m both sad & happy that this project is coming to an end, but I’m anxious to try all the new products I bought the last 2 months. Next week, time for a project recap so be sure to visit me and my partners in “makeup” crime once again!!!

♥ Mac Eye Shadow X 15 : Cool Neutral ♥

Project Focus 10 : MAC Eye Shadow X 15 in Cool Neutral

So we reached our final week and for the “plat de resistance”, we all are reviewing an eyeshadow palette!!! Yay! Hurray! Today I’ll share my thoughts on the pre-made Mac Eye Shadow X 15: Cool Neutral. On a personal note, when I chose to buy this palette, it felt a little strange, as I find the other three palettes in this collection more appealing (Mellow Moderns was not available – I must have had a seizure when I clicked the “Order” button). That being said, I really like this cool palette! Using it non-stop for 10 weeks, I’ve realized that cooler shades suit me quite well. Even though I have quite a large palette collection, this is my only cool palette.

Note: To this day, the best compliment I’ve received from BeardMan was when I was wearing these cool tones 😘!

Note (2): Sorry if there are no swatches to show, but I went to BeardMan’s House to make the most of the long Easter weekend, and I forgot my palette at the apartment! I took 3 Mac palettes with me forgetting the important one 😉!

♥ 15 shadows for 85$CND = 5,66$CND per eyeshadow. Contrary to Mac’s Pro Palette, you don’t have to add the 10$ palette and the 3$ insert. For 85 bucks, the value is totally there.

♥ Same performance as there regular, single counterparts!

♥ I love Mac eyeshadows because they are not overly pigmented, they blend like a charm and are definitely buildable. Even the darkest colors in this palette are so easy to use for my daytime eye looks.

♥ Work well dry or wet!

♥ Such a versatile palette, great for daytime or nighttime, day-to-day or special events.

♥ Travel friendly (when you don’t forget it).

♥ With 15 shades, this palette is perfect as is!! You don’t need to add other shadows. With pale and darker colors, you can achieve almost anything!!


♣ Since I’m not a glitter girl whatsoever, I will probably never use Silver Fog & Black Tied.

♣ Compared to the Pro Palette, you are stuck with these colors. You cannot remove any eyeshadows and the housing case is not a magnetized.

♣  If you only like crazy pigmented shadows, stay away from Mac!

Final Thoughts:

I’m really happy with this purchase even if I hesitated before buying. I find myself having so much fun using it! Cool colors are new to me and I’m still experimenting/playing with them to find combination and nice mixes. But to this date, I managed to create a ton of cool eye looks. With 4 different palettes in this collection & the price recently lowered from 99$CND to 85$CND, it’s now an affordable product (if you are into high-end stuff). Honestly, you should go for the Warm Neutral palette if you are beginning your collection as the shades are all crazy beautiful (No duds in this one).

  1. I can totally see why you would intially be attracted to the other palettes more, they just look a little more lively and vibrant. However, I can totally see the cooler tones suite you 😀

    1. Are you as happy as I am with new price on their shadows ???
      Do you own any ABH eyeshadows? If yes, how do they compare? Want to buy some at the VIB sale.
      My MAC shopping list is crazy long 😛

      1. Ok, brace yourself – I own zero Mac shadows….I know. But I plan to change that this year, and I was very happy to hear that they lowered their prices! 😊
        Unfortunately I don’t own any ABH shadows either, I have a lot of catching up to do! I want to try Makeup Geek as well but I’m going to wait until the exchange rate is better. 😒


  2. No question, these 15 pans are amazing value! And shockingly, I only own ONE shade in this Cool Neutral palette! (Black Tied) 😛
    But boo, that you cannot remove the pans from the palette. How silly of MAC to have done this!
    Actually now that I see the Mellow Moderns, I think I like that one more. I. DO. NOT. NEED. 😉

    1. So funny !!! Do you like Black Tied or should I say do you use it???
      I agree, the Mellow Moderns is more appealing to me too; but in december it wasn’t available…
      YOU.DO.NEED IT .😜
