MAC Cosmetics released the Spider Queen Pro Palette with the MAC x Rick Baker collection for Halloween 2013. I was probably looking forward to this palette the most out of everything from the 2013 MAC collections.
The Spider Queen Pro Palette comes with six eyeshadows (6g each) and retails for $44.00. The packaging is made from a lightweight, sturdy, black plastic and has a clear window on the front. I really don't mind foregoing a mirror to be able to see all of the eyeshadow colors that the palette holds.
The eyeshadow colors are:
Lime (Permanent, PRO): Lime green matte
Moss (Limited Edition): Warm yellow green frost
Deep Purple (Limited Edition): Bright deep purple frost
Indian Ink (Permanent, PRO): Deep eggplant matte
Dusty Purple (Limited Edition): Mid-tone neutral purple satin
Carbon (Permanent): Intense black matte
All of the pictures were taken in natural lighting and the eyeshadows were swatched dry on bare skin (no base or primer) with a finger. I think MAC could have done a better job with the overall texture of the shadows, especially since these are part of the PRO line. Lime was pretty chalky and carbon should have been much more pigmented. Honestly, I really like the color selections chosen for this palette, but I just had higher hopes for it. We'll see how well it performs when the shadows are used for a look.
What do you think? Did you grab anything from the MAC x Rick Baker collection?
