MAC Bare My Soul Quad | Review & Swatches

Friday, 9 May 2014






Hey Beauties! I hope you've all had an amazing week and are looking forward to the weekend! This weekend I don't have much planned so I'm going to spend it catching up on all things blog related as I have about 15 posts in my drafts ready to write up! If you read one of my posts earlier this week, then you'll know that I was lucky enough to pick up some MAC goodies from a blog sale, the Bare My Soul palette being one of them. I'm really sorry to say that this palette was limited edition, but I thought I would review it for you anyway incase you are able to pick it up somewhere or you can find any similar colours. 

The Bare My Soul palette contains 4 more neutral colours and one bright little pop of colour which I think is a great addition to the palette. It contains Romantico which is a light shimmery golden brown, Bare My Soul which is a really pretty golden shimmery colour, Friendly which is a deeper brown with a golden sheen to it, and When In Rio which is a beautiful deep blue shimmery turquoise colour which I love for its uniqueness. 

I really love this palette as there are so many looks you can create with it. It has some neutral colours perfect for every day and then you can add in the deep blue/green colour to spice things up a bit and create a smokey eye with a difference. I think this quad will be perfect for creating a golden summer look and I can really see myself getting a lot of use from it, as all of the colours are highly pigmented and buttery soft. 

What do you think of the Bare My Soul palette?

    1. I was so impressed by the pigmentation, I've had ones from MAC before where I've been left a little disappointed in the colour payoff, but I have no complaints with this little quad! xx

    1. I love when in Rio, I think it really makes the palette a bit different and worth the money instead of just buying another neutral palette! xx

  5. What a unique palette! I'm not sure I would get a lot of use out of that teal color but it is stunning none the less

    1. I wasn't sure about the teal colour either before buying it, but I gave the palette a quick google and there are some seriously pretty looks which can be created using the whole palette :) xx

  6. I'd prefer if the palette had a matte shade, but it's still gorgeous :) xx

    1. A couple of people have been saying that, I guess it would make it an all rounder if one of the browns were matte, but personally I don't get a lot of use from the matte shadows I own! xx

  8. What a beautiful and wearable quad; though I think it's missing one little matte shade to balance it out, perhaps a dark matte brown for the crease. It's still lovely and looks like real quality shadows. They must be a dream to blend.

    Oh and before I forget, when did you change your layout? It look absolutely stunning! c:

      Thankyou lovely, I changed it last night. I thought it was time for a bit of an update and a more simple design :) xxx

  9. 'When In Rio' looks similar to blue brown pigment by MAC.

    1. It really is quite similar, I have that pigment and the only difference is the texture! I do like having it in this quad though as it's so much more compact and makeup bag friendly! xx

  11. I have this palette and I love it! Most of the colours are pretty similar to others in the permanent MAC line which I didn't realise when I bought it. Love the packaging though!
