My Custom MAC Palette | February (Woodwinked)

custom mac palette cost

So despite February being extra long this year (hello Leap Year!) I've still managed to put this off until the last possible minute.  As a quick recap, every month I am purchasing a single MAC eyeshadow (in January I started with a base of 3 and then added 1 for January) such that by December 2016 I will have 15 eyeshadows for a completed 100% customized palette.  This month I purchased "Woodwinked".  Keep reading for my thoughts on this shadow!

Each single MAC shadow retails for $12 CAD ($19 if you need the case).  The palette cost $10 and the insert was $3 (I think) for the 15 shadows.  Bonus?  I know I will love every single shadow in my palette.  Con? Wanting to buy all of the shadows at once!

Woodwinked is described as a "warm antique gold" with a Veluxe Pearl finish.  This warm, rosey gold swatches richly and would be flattering on a range of skin tones.  I mainly intend for this shadow to be used on my lid, but I also think it could be a neat transition shade for rich purple shadow to get that sunset look that is all over my Instagram feed.

Funny story, I knew that this was the shadow I wanted for the month, but I had to go into my MACon three occasions to find it because it was super back ordered.  I was pretty delighted when I finally got my hands on it!

Here is where my palette is so far!  Right now I am thinking of having the top row as neutrals, the middle row as purples and the bottom row as a surprise!  Any guesses?  I'm having lots of fun putting my palette together, but I am also trying to resist the urge to plan it like a grid and instead to just buy whatever shadow catches my day that month.  Wish me luck!

What shadows do you recommend I try next?  I think I am in the market for an under brow highlight and a nice matte taupe... :)
