Fourth Row: Mac Silver Fog Pigment, Mac Electra, Stars Makeup Haven Electra-Fied, Mac Silver Ring, Mac Knight Divine, Stars Makeup Haven Smoke and Mirrors


Favorites: I love using S13, Wine Not?, Hepcat or Cranberry for my crease. 

To create a smokey look, I love wearing Humid or Regal on my lids. To make it look less dramatic, I use Sumptuous Olive on lids and pair it with Humid or Regal on my crease. 

Sage and ME01 look like they're in the browns family, but they have gorgeous olive undertones; however, my camera isn't picking it up.

Skip: Electra-Fied has too much glitter.

Dupes: S16 and S13 look similar, but I wouldn't call them dupes. S16 has a more violet undertone, while S13 has a more plum undertone.

Star By Night and Walkin' After Midnight are dupes. Star By Night is a more navy blue color, while Walkin' After Midnight has a slight purple undertone, but you can barely tell. Deep Truth is more frosty and is a true blue. Contrast is the darkest among them and has a purple undertone.

Note: Mac Eyeshadows in pan form cost $11.00 for 1.5 grams (some of the eyeshadows have 1.3 grams) and cost $16 in pots. Stars Makeup Haven eyeshadows cost $6.00 for 1.3 grams. Coastal Scents eyeshadows cost $1.95 for 1.5 grams. The empty 28 pan palette can be purchased from Coastal Scents for $9.95.
