MAC’s Holiday 2010 A Tartan Tale collection includes Reelers and Rockers ($36), a mix of cool and metallic tones. In the past, I loved to buy MAC’s Holiday eye palettes, routinely purchasing two or three. The price-per-shadow is low, they are usually cute/fun and I love the convenience of a palette for travel.
This year, after reviewing my own collection, I realized that most of MAC’s 2010 eye palettes would be duplicative. I ordered only one-Reelers and Rockers-online, because it has the most of my favorite MAC finish–Veluxe Pearl. I’ve loved several –some have a sheen that glows without glitter, they apply smoothly and beautifully.
After I ordered this online, I saw this in a brick and mortar store and worried, “what was I thinking?” This palette did not seem to be my style at all. I was very tempted to return it without trying it out, but that seemed to break the first rule of beauty blogging–> Don’t judge a palette by its cover (or something like that).
Reelers and Rockers comes in a gift-able uber cute yellow box:
