MAC Her Cocoa Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

This was provided to me by a brand for review but all opinions expressed are my own

MAC Her Cocoa Eyeshadow Quad Fall 2013

The MAC Her Cocoa Eyeshadow Quad ($44) is one of two new limited edition Riri Hearts MAC Fall Eyeshadow Palettes released for Fall 2013 featuring limited edition packaging.

Rihanna has had a few collaborations with MAC this year but thus far I think the Fall 2013 Collection is possibly the nicest especially with the rose gold metallic packaging!

Take a peek!

MAC Her Cocoa Eyeshadow Quad is possibly one of my favorite MAC quads in recent months. I love this natural shades! The actual quad doesn’t have shade names which is odd. They named the quad “Her Cocoa” but the individual colors aren’t named. This isn’t really like MAC as typically they name each shade in a quad but this time around they did not.

The palette is made up of a bronze-y light gold lustre, a soft peach with a satin almost semi-matte finish, a warm golden brown with touches of shimmer, and a light brown with touches of taupe.

These are basically essential shades for creating the perfect nude eye look. I can’t say again how much I love the pairing here. They are just shades that work very well together. Too many times I get a quad of shadows from MAC and I’m at a loss how to match them up together. Her Cocoa is an easy to use palette with coordinating shades that compliment each other beautifully!

I did by MAC standards the pigmentation is subtle and not in your face but I don’t mind so much. All the shades had a soft, smooth feel and an easy to blend formula with very little fall out.

If you love nude, natural eye looks I highly suggest purchasing this quad. It’s a selection of colors you’ll likely make use of daily and well worth investing in!

A strong Muse Approval for this one!

It’s available MAC stores on September 26th and online at September 30th, and counters starting October 3rd.
