I'm writing this blog post of Friday the 13th and this is my 13th post... whshh; mind blown.

Hello everyone! Welcome back to my little corner of the internet!
So, I had been eyeing up a certain eyeshadow palette by M.A.C and I had tried out lots of different eyeshadows out in the M.A.C store so I knew a lot of them were very pigmented. When I got a M.A.C voucher for my birthday, I finally took the plunge and bought the 'Warm Neutral' palette.
So I thought I would help all of you lovely people out by reviewing this glorious palette and clarifying... is it really worth the buy?
But... before we get into the review, who noticed that I have actually stuck to one of my 17 Goals For 2017 and am actually posting on time *winkey face*.

This cost around £40 for me but I managed to get this on sale so usually this would cost £60 which is fairly expensive but as we all know, M.A.C doesn't come cheap! 

It comes with a mix of warm browns, warm creams and a lot of gold and orange-y brown. Overall, a beautiful range of warm shades. I think this palette is perfect for all seasons, you can go for a dark, autumnal look in Autumn, a warm golden look for the festive season, and a glory, bronze look for Summer and Spring!

This palette comes with 15 beautiful warm, neutral shades. 
Two of which are completely matte (Brule and Saddle)
Thirteen of which are shimmery, although some are more shimmery than others (Hey, Warm Breeze, Gingersnap, Dark Brew, Dance In The Dark, Vanilla Extract, Honey Lust, Amber Lights, Lemon Tart, Creative Copper, Butterfudge, Divine Decadence, Unwind).
My favourite from the palette would have to be Gingersnap, Dark Brew and although this is an odd mossy green shade I find it compliments my eyes so I would also say Unwind.

Overall, I found that the majority of shades were very pigmented and easy to apply and blend however a few shades weren't.
I would say all the lighter shades are incredibly pigmented and with a few quick swipes of these shades over the lid you're good to go however if you're going for more of a darker look, I found that this was a bit trickier. 
A few of the more darker shades were a lot harder to apply. They were fairly pigmented but the actual product doesn't move across the lid very easily, it tends to stick and isn't as... flexible — shall we say— as hoped but I'm sure with a good primer, this can be resolved.
Again the same goes for the matte shades. I tend to put the matte shades in the crease of my eye and then blend them out but these shades seem to stick and it becomes very hard to blend it out into a gorgeous smokey eye. But again this can be sorted with a good primer.

Overall, I think this is a pretty good palette. It isn't quite as wonderful as my Naked palette but it is definitely better than anything I have tried in the drugstore... although I have heard Revolution have great palettes.
To be quite honest, I am very happy with this palette and I know I will be getting a lot of use out of it!
I would definitely recommend this to anyone humming and harring over buying a palette.

Thank you very much for reading and I truly hope this was helpful! 
What is your favourite shade from the palette? What is your go-to, holy grail eyeshadow palette?
Until next Saturday...
Katy xoxo
