Fall Colour Eye Shadow Quad in “Parlor Smoke”

Limited Edition
Release Date: September 29, 2011
Availability: MAC online & MAC stores

This review covers Parlor Smoke eye shadow quad from MAC’s Fall Colour Collection.

  • Parlor Smoke (frost): Mauve grey (Limited Edition)
  • Cross Cultural (matte): Neutral brown (Limited Edition, Repromote)
  • Steel (veluxe pearl): Almost black (Limited Edition)
  • Indigo (matte): Navy (Limited Edition)

Packaging: 9/10

This quad is packaged in a standard MAC container–a plastic 2-by-2 palette with a see-through, flip-up, magnetized lid.

Quality: 9.25/10

The colors in this quad have good pigmentation. Parlor Smoke is a particularly beautiful and unique color. This is also a high quality quad because it contains 2 matte colors that have strong finishes: Cross Cultural and Indigo.

Ease of Use: 9.25/10

These colors are easy to apply. Layer Indigo to even out the finish.

Price: 9.25/10

Single shadows are (now) $15.00 each, so for four colors, $38.00 is a good deal.
