Looking online simply does not do many of the Heatherette shades justice. In person the Heatherette for MAC Collection has exceeded my expectations. From the hot hot-pink to the metallic fuchsia along with the holographic foil decoration of the packaging, to the beautiful shades inside the palettes, compacts and tubes.
My favorite piece of the collection is the Eye Shadow Trio 1.
The shades in this palette:
Hoppin’ Clean Pastel Peach (frost)
Mood Ring Pastel Mint Green (veluxe pearl)
Cloudburst True Black with Subtle Green Pearl (velvet)
When looking at the photo of this trio on MAC, I thought it was too bright. But I was wrong. The shades are simply gorgeous and appear much softer in real light.
I am using the peachy/pink shade all over my brow bone and eye lid with the teal shade (really, it is much more of a teal than a mint green) on the outer two-thirds of my lid. I then take my MAC 211 Brush and use the darkest black shade that has sparkles of the teal shade in it, as an upper and lower liner. It is beautiful. The sparkle is subtle, but it softens the black and brings the teal shade out more.
The Heatherette Trio's (which are back in stock over at maccosmetics.com) retail for $32.50. And if you are a gal that loves the pink and lilac shades, then you will want to check out the other eye palette, Trio 2.
