MAC Cham Pale Eyeshadow Quad Caviar Dreams Review, Swatches, Photos

Anyone lemming the MAC Cham Pale Eyeshadow Quad in Caviar Dreams? It was one of the second things I wanted upon seeing the promo images (the first being the Paint Pots).

Two of the shades are actually in the general catalog but I don’t already own them so it worked out rather well.

Let’s look!

The quad is made up of four softer more delicate shades of color. I haven’t tried a look as of yet with the palette but I’m leaning towards saying the formula ranges in the realms of frosty on most of the shades. You are getting one frost finish here, two lustres which tend to be unpopular with the masses, and one satin.

Regardless of the frost the palette is quite gorgeous or at least I think so. I’m not sure how a completed eye look will be but I’m leaning towards saying with some good blending it’ll be workable.

Shades include Brule (creamy beige satin), Et Tu, Bouquet? (frosty pale pink), Caviar Dreams (frosty pewter), and Retrospeck (bleached blond). The shades are matched beautifully so you aren’t left with a quad full of confusing color, these just seem to go together very well in my opinion.

I’ll play with it more next week and give you a bit more information when I do but for now hope you enjoy the mini review, photos, and swatches!

Will you be purchasing the quad?

Do share!

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I wanted this quad when I first saw the promo pics, but now Im passing. I have a Wet N Wild trio that looks similar, and Wet N Wild Brule color that looks similar lol

  • Lucy

    This is very tempting. It will depend on the Peacock Collection whether I purchase this. I also wore deeper shades and now am going more with the neutral shades.
