MAC Flamingo Park Palette

Hello loves,

I recently got the Mac Flamingo Park x9 eyeshadow palette so I thought why not share this beauty with you lot! 😄

This palette is a US exclusive but before you wonder how many kidneys I sold to get this in the UK, fear not people I used a service where you can pre-order US products and the lady (Claudia) sorts out everything for you with regards to customs etc and you get your goodies in the post! 😄

Anyway on to the palette!! This is a very pretty set of shadows and is perfect for spring with the flower power colours. However I was disappointed with the pigmentation of some of the shades.

The paler pink and yellow needed a heavier swatch which is not totally surprising with pale shades as less colour pigment is used but the middle shadow in the palette (5th swatch, the pink) was really bad to swatch.

Although I'm happy to say they do wear better on the lid however the super pale pink can only be used as a transition shade to help with blending. 😊

Overall I think it's a cute palette. It's expensive for the size but if you're a MAC fan I think you'll love it!

created the above look using the palette. The only shade not from this set is on the inner lid but everything else is MAC. The blue on the bottom lash line looked amazing! 

What do you think of this palette? 

Much Love,

  5. It looks like such a fun palette to have in your collection, although I'm kind of disappointed by the swatches... I've heard people talk about the 3x3 palettes in the past and how they are not as good of quality as the regular eyeshadows... it can be a bit of a hit or miss with Mac, especially with the matte eyeshadows... But I love a good, bight palette!
