First Row: Kid, Wedge, Cork, Soft Brown, Espresso, Blackberry, Shadowy Lady
Second Row: Haux, Swiss Chocolate, Folie, Corduroy, Brown Down, Sorcery Limited Edition, Embark
Favorites: I love using Soft Brown as a transition color. I thought it was going to look too orange, but it's actually a light peachy brown color. Blackberry, Haux and Folie are gorgeous colors for the crease. They all have a hint of purple which is my favorite color for the eyes. Also, Espresso is a must-have for me because I use it to fill in my eyebrows.
Skip: I would skip Sorcery if you already have Sketch because the only difference between the two is that Sketch is more darker.
Dupes: Wedge has a cooler undertone, while Cork has a warmer undertone and is a little bit darker. If you have a cool skin tone, then get Wedge, but if you have a warm skin tone, then get Cork; however, I find that both eyeshadows work for me when I use them as transition colors.
Folie and Sorcery are not dupes. Folie is a reddish brown with a hint of some purple, while Sorcery is a dark brown with a burgundy undertone.
Corduroy and Brown Down look very similar. Corduroy is a more true brown and a little bit lighter, while Down Brown has a reddish undertone.
Brown Down and Embark are not dupes. Embark is a very dark brown, and because it's so dark, I can barely tell that it has a reddish undertone, which Mac describes on their website. (I am not saying that it's a bad color. I actually like using it for the outer v.)
Note: Mac Eyeshadows in pan form cost $11.00 for 1.5 grams (some of the eyeshadows have 1.3 grams).
