MAC's Royal Assets Eye Palettes.

Have you seen these beauties yet? The Royal Assets eye palettes from MAC, just one of the MAC Cosmetics Holiday Collections this year, are stunning. Not only are these palettes a great way to try out the MAC shadows, it is a great way to play and learn to experiment with colors you would otherwise not use.

There are 4 different palettes. One in a warm collection, one in a cool collection, a metallic palette, and a smokey eye palette. Each palette contains 6 eye shadows, for $36 each.

Royal Assets: 6 Smokey Eyes

Shades are: Rondelle, a light silver with white pearl (frost); Courtly Grey, a cement grey (matte); Knight, a deep grey with silver pearl (veluxe pearl); Maid of Honor, a creamy beige (Satin); Palatial a taupe brown (satin) and Majestic, a neutral grey brown with silver sparkle (lustre). 


Royal Assets: 6 Metallic Eyes

Shades are:  Honeylust, a bronze dipped peach (lustre); Silver Fog, a. intense frosted silver with silver pearl (frost), Stately Black, a rich blue with silver sparkle (lustre); Velvet Lady, a deep black with gold sparkle (velvet); Crème Royale a yellow wheat gold (veluxe pearl) and Manor, a warm brown with green pearl (frost).


Royal Assets: 6 Cool Eyes

Shades are: Shadowy Lady, a darkly veiled plum (matte); Silverwear, a lilac grey (frost); Modern Heir, a grape purple with white pearl (frost); Queen's Jewel, a rich blue with blue pearl (veluxe pearl); Medallion, a frosted light pink (frost) and Trophy Pink, a rich red magenta (frost).


Royal Assets: 6 Warm Eyes 

 Shades are: Sunday Best, an ivory with frost (frost); Star Violet, a eath-touched pinky-brown plum fusion (veluxe pearl); Retrospeck, a beached blonde (lustre); Club, a muted reddish brown duochrome with freen opalescent shimmer (satin); Showstopper, a neutral dark brown and Nobility, a light pink taupe (satin).

Each palette comes with it's own brush, a 213SE Eye Brush. Also, the shadows are enclosed in either a gold or silver antique-inspired compact with a beautiful cream porcelain plaque and royal crown motif. Gorgeous! I told you the packaging was pretty!

I know it is hard to decide on which palette you want and which one(s) you want to give. I say buy them all, glance over each one more than a few times, and then make your decision. And if you are like me, you will probably need to go back to buy more because you won't be able to resist playing with them all.

These limited edition beauties are available now, so you need to get yours and quick.
