MAC Eyeshadow x 9: Burgundy Times Nine, Purple Times Nine, MACnificent Me Swatches and Comparisons

MAC recently made a price reduction on their Eyeshadow Times Nine palettes from $40 to $32, which reflects an $8 price difference— practically unheard of these days! Today I wanted to share comparisons of the three MAC x 9 Palettes that I own. Each palette contains nine complementary shadows that are well edited versions of their larger size counterparts. The assortment of colors in each palette are delightfully beautiful and contain a mix of matte, satin and frosty shades.  Overall, they are pigmented, easy to blend and perform well throughout the day. You can create looks that take you from day to evening. In addition, they are super cute, compact and great for travel.

These perfectly curated palettes would be a good option for those seeking a first introduction to the MAC Cosmetics line, for makeup artists, and for beauty aficionados alike. It’s a great way to try many of their shadows without having to commit to buying singles. Of course once you find  the shades that you love, you can feel confident about purchasing its full size counterparts. They are not only pigmented, but blend very easily and are perfectly portable. With a variety of textures and finishes and a range of colors to suit both cool and warm tones, there is a palette for everybody.
