Availability: MAC Stores & Online
Price: $44.00

Company’s Description

An Eye Shadow Quad packaged in a limited-edition soft touch bronze compact in four shades: Bare My Soul, When In Rio, Friendly and Romantico. The highly pigmented powder formula applies evenly, blends and builds beautifully.

This review is for the Bare My Soul Eye Shadow Quad releasing with MAC’s Temperature Rising Collection for Spring 2013. This post includes photographs and swatches of the following colors:

  • Bare My Soul: Frosted gold (Lustre)
  • When in Rio: Deep green with copper pearl (Frost)
  • Summer Indulgence: Deep bronze chocolate (Veluxe Pearl)
  • Romantico: Light taupe bronze (Veluxe Pearl)


Romantico is a shimmering, light, taupe-brown. Bare My Soul is a shimmery, light gold. Summer Indulgence is a shimmery, golden chocolate brown. When in Rio is a frosted, shimmery forest green with a deep green base.

When in Rio needs the most pressure and layering to get a smooth finish, but overall, this is a good quad. The colors have good pigmentation and, while they don’t have the softest formula, apply to the skin pretty smoothly.

For $44.00 you get 5.6 grams (0.19 ounces) of eye shadow. The price increase is purely due to MAC’s use of a different color for the compacts in this collection.

    Am I the only one who thinks MAC’s prices are getting outrageous? I mean, there are far better brands out there that are not as pricey. $44 for the quads…the price seems to have gone up.
