MAC Me Over Lady Grey Eye Shadow Quad Review, Swatches, Photos

MAC Me Over sees the release of two new eye quads. I got Lady Grey to try out but I have to say it’s not very me. I don’t do taupes so well I fear, they remind me of vintage romance novels featuring Fabio as the hero! ha! Because boyfriend always looked like he had on fancy shades of purple and taupe eyeshadow on those covers!

Let’s take a peek!

The Lady Grey Eyeshadow Quad is probably one of the better palletes I’ve seen from MAC in a while. Some of the quad releases have had crummy formulas but Lady Grey suffers none of the same downfalls. The palettes are soft and blend easily. I find picking up color is not an issue where as a few palettes from the last few collections failed to yield color as the texture of the shades seemed to be rather hard. The colors do run softer and sheer but can be built up for more dramatic color pay off however not so much that they pop in my opinion.

Colors include:

  • Tendersome-silvery lilac frost
  • Hazy Day-mid-tone grey
  • All Races-cool taupe mauve
  • Lady Grey-frosted green-grey satin

I do believe shades like these though prove difficult to pull off but those who prefer a more sophisticated, softer eye look will be very pleased with this collection of shades.

This will be available from MAC on August 25th, 2011.

Will you be indulging?

Are you a taupe girl?

    Fabio the Italian Stallion has got himself on a hell of a lot of romance books ! Swoon.
    Anyway back down to earth. The Mac quad shades are a little light for me but I wouldn’t say no if they were matte.

    I might pick this one up, since you said the pigmentation was okay on it. I have super deep set eyes and don’t do smokey eyes because they make me look like I lost a round in boxing. But I might be able to do a subtle smokey look with these colors.

    I’d totally go for that if they didn’t look so sheer

    My wallet is mentally empty. I want both quads all the chanel stuff you posted today and who knows what else. I will have to go in person and eliminate anything I don’t love. This quad seems perfect for me tho. decisions decisions.

    Yay! This collection is coming out on my b-day and I was already planning a makeup haul, now I have one more thing to buy! Taupes are my thing and I don’t have dupes for these colors so this is getting added to my shopping list. Thanks!

    I’ve got pretty fair skin (blonde hair, blue eyes, freckles etc) and I love these kinds of shades. Dammit, now I’m gonna have to buy it! 😛

    Yes, I’ll get it and how can I say no to a quad with purples and taupes :)

    Thanks for the feedback, I do not mind sheer, but as long as the quality is good I am game.

    *shakes fist at Muse* lol!!!! Kind of reminds me of Bobbi Brown’s Peony palette with the greys and purples. I know the colors are completely different but seems like same concept. If I think like that then I’m safe lol! #jenreasoning

    they remind me a lot of Smashbox Colors from the Bloom collection. Or the Muse collection but the Muse collection is a litte brighter?
