BEAUTY,

Mac Girls Palettes – Qween Supreme and Risk Taker

Mac released two new eyeshadow palettes that are part of their Girls line. They originally launched six palettes that are part of the permanent line and added two more. The Qween Supreme and Risk Taker palette are the new additions to the line.

At the original launch, I received Power Hungry which I never reviewed on my blog so I included my thoughts and swatches of that palette too.

The Qween Supreme palette comes with eight metallic shades and a highlighter shade. There are no matte shades in this palette, they are all rich metallic shades. The shades that come in the palette are:

  • Posh As You Want : True yellow gold (Foiled)
  • Fire Starter : Bronze (Foiled)
  • Long Live, Lustre : Light rose gold (Foiled)
  • Magic Dust : Silver (Foiled)
  • Call Me Qweenie : Pewter grey (Foiled )
  • Tit-For-Tat : Orange copper (Foiled)
  • About To Reign : Blackened grey with silver pearl (Foiled)
  • Royal Caper : Blackened purple with multidimensional pearl (Pearl)
  • Insta Qween : Light cream beige highlighter (Opalescent)

The formula of the eyeshadows is just amazing. They are richly pigmented and have a very pretty metallic finish on the eyes. To intensify the metallic finish and get almost a wet look on the eyes, you can always use them wet. Since they are metallics I get a tiny bit of fallout which is usual with shadows like these. I also really like the shade selection. I like that Mac included both warm and cool toned eyeshadows in one palette. Of course I can’t really do a whole look with an all metallic palette because I need at least one matte crease shade. But I think Qween Supreme is great for creating looks that are a simple one wash of color (this is a big summer trend on the runway. I’ve been seeing shimmer shades all over the lid and just buffed out in to the crease).

The highlighter shade on the other hand is more subtle than the eyeshadows. With one layer I get a subtle and natural looking glow. You can definitely build it up if you prefer a more intense look. The finish is always a sheen and it gives almost a glossy effect on the skin.

The Risk Taker Palette comes with eight eyeshadows and a highlighter. This palette features a new pressed eyeshadow powder formula called Pearl that promises rich color payoff and a creamy formula. The shade selection in this palette are bronze shades but also there are some pops of peach and magenta. There are also different finishes in this palette, ranging from creamy matte to satin and foiled, so you can definitely do multiple looks with using just this palette.

The shades that come in the Risk Taker Palette are:

  • Totally Obsessed: Light neutral (Creamy Matte)
  • Totally Fierce: Peachy pink (Satin Shine)
  • Free Ride: Rosy muted mauve (Creamy Matte)
  • Bossing It: Warm bronze (Satin Shine)
  • Fashion Fanatic: Bright red fuschia (Satin Shine)
  • Outfitted: Light peach with silver pearl (Foiled)
  • Dangerously Elegant: Darkened brown with green/gold pearl (Satin Shine)
  • Risky Business: Dark purple grey with magenta/green pearl (Pearl)
  • Let It Rock: Light gold highlighter (Opalescent)

Swatches L to R: Totally Obsessed, Totally Fierce, Fashion Fanatic, Outfitted, Free Ride, Dangerously Elegant, Bossing It, Risky Business, Let it Rock

The formula of the eyeshadows is also super nice. The creamy mattes apply evenly and blend very easy on the skin. The satin shine shades have a tiny bit of shimmer but can be definitely used in the crease too.

Let It Rock is a very light opal gold shade. It has the same finish as the other palette so it gives a beautiful sheen and a glossy effect on the cheeks.

If you are looking for an all neutral palette that is great for creating every day looks, the Power Hungry Palette is the way to go.

The palette has a good mix of matte and shimmery shades and warm and cool toned colors.

SHADE DESCRIPTION

Swatches L to R: Totally Obsessed, Bling Mistress, Bossing It, Money Mad, Hot To Trot, Winsome Lose Some, Something’s Fishy, Dangerously Elegant, Gimme That!

As you can see by the swatches, the Power Hungry Palette is the most neutral palette of the three. It has a good variety of warm and cool toned shades and different finishes. I’ve been using this palette to create simple makeup looks but also some brown smoky eyes.

Bottom line, all three palettes are of great quality. I think Mac did a good job of releasing palettes for every taste. You have some great neutral options but also some colorful palettes. The palettes are also compact and feel sturdy so they will be a good option to take when you travel.

Have you tried any of the Mac Girls palettes?
