MAC X CINDERELLA STROKE OF MIDNIGHT EYESHADOW PALETTE




In the words of Cinderella, a dream is a wish the heart makes and this palette is a dream come true for any beauty lover.  I knew I needed to get my hands on this collection before it vanished as fast as Cinderella's carriage turned into a pumpkin. 

The palette is ideal for any neutral lover and is made up of some much loved MAC shades. It's a great addition if you're thinking of building your collection and for those who miss out, you can rest easy the palette is dupeable, the only original shade  is 'Stoke of Midnight'.   However, purchasing the eyeshadow in this format is also a cost saving exercise, for 6 shadows you pay $72AUD/$44US, vs. $198AUD/$96US.

Vapour is a velvet finish eyeshadow, which is a beautiful pinky/cream colour. Perfect for highlighting under the brow bone.

Phloof is a delightful frost formula, it's a pinky beige and ideal to use near the the tear duct.

Omega is a matte, and it's a very neutral beige, very soft and subtle. The colour would be used to contour the crease to add definition.

Quarry,  my absolute favourite. The reason I love this colour is because its so very similar to my favourite Colourpop Cosmetics eyeshadow 'Bill'. They're both a bewitching plum brown perfect to subtly smoke out the outer c.

Satin Taupe, I call this shade the OG Tanya Burr. When I started watching YouTube beauty tutorials many moons ago, I have a vivid memory of Tanya using this colour constantly and I don't blame her, it's stunning. It's a frost finish and perfect to sweep all over the eyelid during those lazy days. It's very similar to Quarry, but with a silver shimmer running through it. 

Stroke of Midnight, this colour is no ordinary black. It's more of a black/plum with purple shimmers through it. It's a velvet, so it isn't as shimmery as a frost. A great way to change up your traditional black.

  6. I cannot explain how much I want this collection. I've never been a huge MAC girl (I actually don't have anything from them!) but this collection is so gorgeous! I think I might have to finally lose my MAC virginity, and buy something from the Cinderella line! Great post and pictures! :)
