MAC Fashion Pack | Eye Shadow X 9 in "She's A Model"
Eye Shadow x 9 in "She's A Model" ($42 CAD):
Packaged in a simple black compact with a clear lid, the Eye Shadow X 9 palette includes nine shadows weighing at 0.62 grams each. I have to admit that the previous palettes I've tried from MAC have been hit or miss so I was quite pleasantly surprised with this one. Included is a nice selection of neutrals with a couple of brights.

Fresh Blade is a soft and creamy ivory shimmer with a hint of yellow. Gilded Lids is a rich mustard yellow satin and Sample Sized is a beautiful metallic antique gold. Both of these are very buttery, with Sample Sized being especially rich and pigmented.

Fab Accent is a light taupe nude, Cool Complement is a light taupe-brown, and Dance in the Dark is a deep black-brown. Fab Accent is quite chalky and Cool Complement is very patchy. Dance in the Dark is slightly chalky but the color is buildable.

Big Attitude is a light brown shimmer with a gorgeous sheen; the formulation is super rich and pigmented. Not Basic Black is a dark taupe with light sparkles; this one is very smooth but the pigmentation isn't as rich as Big Attitude. Last but not least is Teal; this is a gorgeous dark teal sparkle with a black base. The formulation is slightly patchy but it's very buildable. Overall, I'm not too impressed with the matte browns but all the other shades are all pretty nice!

MAC Fashion Pack | Lipstick in "By Special Order"
MAC Lipstick in "By Special Order" ($21 CAD):
A bright red with a pink undertone, By Special Order is a gorgeous color for those that love a daring pop of color. The lipstick almost looked like it would have shimmers but it has the traditional "Amplified Creme" formulation, which means it's packed with pigments yet super moisturizing. The vanilla-scented lip color glides beautifully across the lips and it wears for hours on end.

Studio Nail Lacquer in "Style Matters" ($14 CAD):
A unique bright jade green shimmer, "Style Matters" is very smooth and pigmented. For the swatches below, I used two coats. This is such a gorgeous color, I know I have a soft spot for green and blue shimmers but this one really knocks it out of the park!
