MAC Girls Basic Bitch Palette

MAC Girls Basic Bitch Palette|

MAC’s latest release is the #MACGirls Palettes, a collection of 6 palettes all about expressing your presence and personality. Each palette contains 8 eyeshadows and one highlighter. I received a sample of the Basic Bitch palette* and today I’ll be sharing my review & swatches as well as an overview of the other palettes in the collection.

MAC Girls Basic Bitch Palette |

The MAC Basic Bitch palette is predominately made up of cool, smoky tones in greys, silver, and some pops of color like a dark reddish burgundy in the shade Hells in Heels. It’s very sleek, compact and opens up to a sizable mirror although it doesn’t prop itself up. The highlighter is the largest pan in the palette while the other shadows have pans that vary in size, which makes for a fun layout.


MAC Basic Bitch Shades |


  • Gameplayer (darkest black)
  • Hell In Heels (purpled dark red)
  • Big White Lie (blackened grey)
  • Text Me Later (mid tone grey)
  • Me Me Me (very light cool grey)
  • Ms. Personality (grey w/ silver/green gold pearl)
  • Tattle-Tale (cool grey w/ pink pearl)
  • Sly Girl (grape purple w/ silver pearl)
  • Love This B* (silver pink highlighter)

MAC Basic Bitch Swatches|

L-R Sly Girl, Tattle Tale, Me Me Me, Hell in Heels, Ms. Personality, Big White Lie, Text Me Later, Game Player, and Love this Bitch (highlighter)

I found the shades to be on par with the existing MAC shadows I have in my collection. They are creamy and pigmented (Sly Girl & Tattle Tale especially) and the color options contained within are very complementary to one another. The only shadow that did not swatch that well was Gameplayer, however using my brush I did not have an issue and it was workable thereafter. This palette is great for a basic smoky eye if you are on the hunt for one and I truly think that these shadows can help you create looks that are basic and not so basic. I like that the two foil shades contained within (Sly Girl & Tattle Tale can take you from basic to next level gorgeousness. I found that the highlighter provided a very soft glow that is not over the top. Clearly, it has won me over. Below you will find an overview of the other palettes available. I took images of them while visiting a MAC store. They were testers, so forgive me if the images are not pristine.
